Among the different types of home inspections that can be done for your home is an electrical inspection, which focuses on the safety and effectiveness levels of your home’s electrical system. Electricity flows throughout your home, so an electrical inspection isn’t confined to any one spot in the home. If you’ve recently decided to hire an electrical inspection service for your home, it helps to know what you can expect to see during the process.
One thing your inspector will look at is the wires. Frayed or otherwise damaged wires can be a fire hazard in addition to potentially affecting the electrical output of your home’s electrical system. This part of the inspection involves looking at wires that are readily visible, as well as wires that are in more hidden spaces, so you should expect your inspector to look in several different places.
The service panel is also a point of interest during the electrical inspection process. This part of the inspection involves making sure the panel has been installed correctly and is secure in its placement. Inspectors will also look at the circuit breaker. Damage to the circuit breaker can lead to big, expensive problems, so your inspector will pay special attention to it.
