The Importance of Electrical Inspections
Many of the components and elements that make up your electrical system are not visible. They are hidden behind walls. This can make it difficult to assess the condition your electrical system is and determine if your system meets current electrical code. An inspection is the best way to determine what condition your system is in, and if it is safe and functional.

When Should An Electric Inspection Be Completed?
Most electrical professionals recommend that you have your electric system professionally inspected by a licensed electrician at least once every five years. You may also need your system inspected if your home was damaged in a fire or flood or if you encounter unexplained electrical issues. Finally, it is always recommended that you have an inspection done as part of the home inspection process when purchasing a home or commercial building.
What Does an Electrical Inspection Consist Of?
There are many different things that may be done to determine what condition your electrical system is in and what possible electric code corrections or electrical repairs your system may need to get it up to code and functional. Some of the different things that may be done to assess your electrical system include:
A load analysis is a complex study to determine how much wattage would be needed to power all of your appliances and outlets. From there, your heating and cooling devices get thrown into the mix. All in all, a load analysis helps to determine the correct amperage needed to power your home and provide the right amount of wattage to all of your appliances and outlets. If your amperage is too low, it can be a huge burden on your electrical system and even lead to electrical problems.
Electrical Home Safety Surveys
A home safety survey involves inspecting, assessing and looking for signs of damage to visible electrical components, including breaker boxes, electrical panels, outlets, light switches, GFCI outlets, hard wired smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and light fixtures.
Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging can be a useful tool in assessing your electrical system. Infrared thermal imaging detects temperature changes. If your wiring, outlets, switchgear or breakers are running hot, this indicates that there is a problem with the electrical system that needs to be solved and repaired. Infrared thermal imaging can detect these heat differences behind walls, giving electrician a slight peek behind your walls.
