Summer Safety Tip: Request an Electrical Inspection for Your Milwaukee Home
One of the best things you can do for yourself and your family this summer is to schedule a Milwaukee home electrical safety inspection. It doesn’t take long; in fact, if you’re not taking any vacation days, you can just as easily schedule it for a Saturday morning. But it’s a crucial aspect of ensuring your home is a safe place for you and your family.
What Happens During a Milwaukee Home Electrical Safety Inspection?
Most homeowners don’t give their electrical systems much thought. After all, if you’ve bought an older home, any issues should have come up during the pre-sale inspection, and if your home is new construction, you automatically assume that all the electrics are up to code.
However, it’s in your best interest to ask hard questions about your electrical system. Because if it’s outdated, worn, damaged or not grounded properly, it can cause electric shocks, appliance burnouts and even electrical fires. So unless you’ve had an electrical inspection done in the past five years and you know that every aspect of your home’s electric past muster, you need to take action as soon as possible.
During a home inspection, an experienced, licensed electrician will check on the following:
- Are there properly functioning carbon monoxide and smoke detectors on every floor?
- Is there whole house surge protection?
- Is there security lighting, and if so, is it correctly placed?
- Is your service panel working properly? Does it need any upgrades?
- Are all outlets and switches safely installed and grounded with ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs)?
- If you have a pool or spa, is the disconnect switch the right voltage and properly placed?
Once the inspection is completed, you’ll receive a complete and comprehensive overview of the condition of your electrical system, along with any recommendations for improvements.
