Whole-Home Electrical Safety Inspections by Fix-It 24/7
We tend to take our electrical systems for granted. Flip a switch; the light comes on. Plug in your phone and it starts charging.
But just like every other complicated system, there’s a lot of stuff that you aren’t aware of going on behind the scenes. Just as you take your car to the mechanic every year for a tune-up, you should do the same for your home systems that you rely on every single day. Namely, your plumbing, heating, cooling, and electrical systems.
Unfortunately, most homeowners neglect these important home tasks and end up paying the price, either in a damaging event such as a fire, or incrementally from high-energy bills and wasted energy.
In order to ensure safe and efficient operation of your home systems, it’s important to schedule annual inspections. This is the best way to make sure you don’t forget these important but fairly inconvenient projects.
Fix-It 24/7’s expert electricians are fully trained and certified to inspect your current electrical system and make sure everything is working well.
We follow the National Electric Code (NEC) to the T and can perform a comprehensive electrical safety inspection of your home, including:
- Electrical Panels
- Meter Base
- Electrical Ballast
- Smoke/CO Alarms
- Outlets and Switches
- GFCIs and AFCIs
- Wiring, even in attics, crawl spaces, and unfinished areas
We will run tests and conduct visual inspections of your entire electrical system. If we see any worn-out or frayed wires, we will make sure they are fixed before we leave.
AFCIs & GFCIs
We will also check all of your ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) and arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs). According to the National Electric Code (NEC), every home should have GFCIs in bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, and everywhere where there is water or moisture.
AFCIs protect against electrical fires from electrical arcing situations while GFCIs protect against electrocutions if the current happens to travel along an undesignated path.
AFCIs are recommended just about everywhere. You can install GFCI and AFCI protection into the point of use outlets or you have install them directly into the circuit breaker for whole-home protection. We highly recommend installing whole-home GFCI and AFCI protection to ensure that your entire home is protected from grounding and arcing situations.
According to the Healthy Home Report of the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, the absence of AFCI protection is the number one hazard associated with fire-related injuries.
