Understanding Residential Electrical Inspections
Contrary to popular belief, electrical components are not foolproof or without the potential for failure. There are situations that occur when an electrical outlet, connection, or individual component may emit heat, creating a potential safety risk and the threat of fire.
An electrical inspection is intended to provide a big-picture review of a home’s electrical system. The traditional residential electrical inspection starts at the entrance, continues to inspect the main panel and would include some thermal images if trouble spots are detected.
A robust residential electrical inspection is always customized to meet the needs of the homeowner and the property size but may include some of the following individual services.
• Documenting the type and age of the service and main panel. The intent here is to identify obsolete or unsafe equipment that may have been recalled or poses a safety risk.
• Specifically calling out any obsolete equipment or any that have been deemed unsafe and have been recalled.
• Document the quality and condition of the service and main panel.
• Check all wire connectors for proper torque.
• Check for any obvious code violations and life safety issues.
• Properly torque all connections.
• Verify the presence of GFCI protection breakers or receptacles in the bathrooms and kitchens as well as outdoors.
• Test a representative number of outlets for proper connections.
• Make note of any obvious issues with any of the other homes electrical supplies, wiring or equipment.
What Can an Infrared Safety Inspection Detect?
An infrared electrical inspection is a modern technique that allows a professional electrician to locate hot spots on the electrical panel caused by defects in electrical components or connections.
Infrared technology helps to locate the early stages of electrical component degradation. In fact, this is a major reason why many home lenders or insurance companies recommend this type of service prior to approving a property sale or new insurance coverage.
