Why We Recommend a Home Electrical Inspection for the Start of the Year


Perhaps you’ve made a New Year’s resolution for yourself, something that will increase your sense of well-being, or something that will save you money. But maybe it didn’t cross your mind to make a New Year’s resolution for your home. Consider it: your home’s well-being will directly benefit your personal well-being, and money saved by avoiding home problems is money in your pocket!

There are many things you can resolve to do for your home this year, but we’re going to focus on one particular option. We recommend that you have an electrical inspection done. It will make your home safer, resolve bothersome issues, and save you money. Here’s how.

The Electrical Inspection Process

Home electrical inspections are conducted (pun intended) by licensed electrical professionals who know exactly what to look for and are experienced at handling electrical systems safely. They’ll check on everything in your home—wiring, switches, outlets, electrical panel—to make sure it’s up to code, capable of handling the electrical needs of your family, working correctly, and properly grounded.

Benefits of Electrical Inspection

Safety is always at the forefront of our minds. Electricity is critical to our modern lifestyle, but it does carry risks, like electric shock and fire. When electrical systems are left to their own devices, they could be damaged during home renovations or nibbled by mice, or maybe even fail to be updated from older and unsafe types of wiring. The only way to stay safe is to know exactly what’s going on in your walls.

There are some costs associated with failing to inspect or update electrical systems that can be quite high and can come up suddenly. For example, an electrical panel, wiring, or fixture that’s struggling to handle the electrical needs of your home can cause power surges that can damage or destroy expensive appliances or electronics.

Signs That It’s Time for an Electrical Inspection

The most important thing to consider here is time. When was your home’s electrical system last inspected? Has it been several years? It’s time to have it done. Do you not even know when it was last done? It’s definitely time!

If you are in the process of selling or purchasing a home, that’s another time that an electrical inspection should be done. This is the case even if it hasn’t been an extremely long time since it was last inspected, and even if there are no problems or concerns that you’ve noticed.

And of course, if you do have specific concerns, that’s a definite sign that you should have an inspection done by qualified electricians in Kerrville, TX. Issues to be on the lookout for include tripped circuit breakers, flickering lights, bulbs burning out frequently, buzzing sounds, hot or acrid smells, scorch marks on fixtures or your electrical panel, or electrical shocks when touching switches, outlets, or appliances.
