Most homeowners don’t realize this, but your electrical system wears down over time. This can create serious safety issues. That’s why many electrical experts suggest that every home’s electrical system should be serviced annually. With that in mind, Del-Air created an Electrical Maintenance Inspection.
This inspection provides you with yearly, professional safety inspection and panel rejuvenation. You’ll receive a guaranteed on-time appointment for your safety inspection and it will be performed by one of our drug-tested, background checked, highly trained electricians.
Check Your Service Panel
Your inspection will begin at the heart of your home’s electrical system, your service panel. Your panel is responsible for distributing electricity throughout your home.
Within your panel are vital components, like your circuit breakers that keep your home and family safe from potential overloads or dangerous conditions in the wiring or appliances.
Your electrician will remove your service panels cover and closely examine each circuit breaker. He will look for any signs of burning, corrosion or deterioration. He will also rejuvenate your panel by tightening the breakers so they are snug and able to protect your home from future problems.
Your electrician will complete his evaluation of your panel by testing its voltage and load. If you have an unbalanced load this acts just like a lightning strike that doesn’t stop and it can cause significant harm to your appliances and electronics. Considering the average home has more than $10,000 worth of appliances and electronics, an unbalanced load can create an expensive problem.
Check GFCI Outlets
With your service panel secure, your electrician will walk through your home and evaluate each of your GFCI outlets. He will also to look to see if they are operating properly and safely.
Any GFCI outlets that present concerns or signs of trouble will be documented.
The safety inspection also includes a careful assessment of all exposed wiring in the home including the attic, crawl space and/or basement. Your electrician will look for any damaged, frayed or improperly installed wiring that could potentially present a safety risk.
Check Smoke Detectors
Of course he will also check all smoke detectors in the home to confirm they are functioning and what alerts you should they be needed.
The inside portion of your safety inspection may be complete, but before your electrician can provide you with a thorough report on your electrical system he must move outside your home.You see, your biggest energy user is your air conditioner. It can account for more than half of your electricity consumed.
Check Your Air Conditioner’s Connection
Your electrician will check your air conditioner’s connection to your home to confirm there are no safety concerns or code violations.
Check If The Breaker Is Properly Sized.
Specifically, your electrician will look to see if the breaker is sized correctly and that there is adequate over current protection. It is not uncommon for breakers to be oversized.
In those situations, your home comfort system may not shut off if it experiences a malfunction. With that, your safety inspection and panel rejuvenation will be complete.
