St George Electrical Safety Inspections
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical problems are the largest cause of property damage in home fires across the U.S. In addition, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that small devices plugged into improperly placed outlets are the leading cause of accidental electrocutions. These safety hazards can be easily found and fixed with our electrical home inspection.
What is an electrical home inspection?
An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components, such as appliances in your home, meet legal safety standards. We operate under the National Electrical Code (NEC) that all electricians follow when examining your home. The NEC defines the parameters for minimum standards across the United States. After our inspection, we’ll give you a detailed and prioritized checklist including areas in need of immediate attention, recommendations for fixes, and potential upgrade opportunities.
It is recommended by the Electrical Safety Foundation that a home inspection is done:
When purchasing a home
When a home is 40 years or older
When adding an appliance
When a home has had a major renovation
