Electrical Code

We check in accordance to the National Electric Code (NEC), created by the National Fire Protection Association, which declares the minimal safety standards for electrical systems across the U.S. It is important for a home or commercial property to adhere to the National Electrical Code to not only protect you from any issues, but to protect anyone who could come in contact with the electrical work whether it be through the sale of a property, a visitor, or another electrician.

When to Get an Electrical Inspection

An electrical inspection may be one of the final parts of the city permitting process when you have any major electrical additions installed in your property. These inspections cover only the electrical work that pertains to the specific job, and will not give you a full assessment of your entire property. An electrical inspection should be administered when you are in contract to purchase or sell a property when you are having to troubleshoot an electrical issue or have a major electrical addition planned.

An electrical inspection is especially important when purchasing a home because it could unravel possible issues that could cost you thousands of dollars to repair. When a home is appraised, a certain level of electrical assessment is administered, however it is important to get a professional and thorough assessment that covers all aspects of a property’s wiring.
