Electrical Safety Inspections in Apex NC
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical issues are the largest cause of property damage in U.S. residential fires. In addition, inadequate home wring is the leading cause of accidental electrocutions, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Scheduling an electrical safety inspection with our Apex electric company will help you avoid both of these dangerous situations.
What is an electrical home inspection?
During an electrical home inspection, a licensed electrician thoroughly examines your electrical system, including all wires, switches, outlets, and appliances. We will verify and ensure that all electric components meet legal safety standards as specified by the National Electrical Code (NEC).
Our Apex electricians will ensure that your home has:
- Adequate lightbulb wattage
- Proper switch and wall outlet operation
- No shock or electrocution hazards
- Properly-placed Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs)
- Appropriate surge protection
- Functional, properly-placed smoke detectors
- Functional, properly-placed carbon monoxide detectors
- An adequate electrical panel (appropriate labels, amps, operation, etc.)
- Operational outdoor electrical systems
When we have finished your electric safety inspection, we will provide you with a detailed, prioritized report that lists areas in need of attention. If you would like, we will be happy to perform any necessary electrical installations or repairs that we have identified, but you are under no obligation to work with us beyond your initial inspection.
