When Should You Schedule an Electrical Inspection?

It’s not necessary to have your electrical system checked annually. But we do recommend scheduling an inspection if the following apply to your situation:

You plan to purchase a new home or business property

Found the perfect new property? While it’s tempting to sign it over right away, make sure you take the time to carry out the necessary inspections before committing. If the seller does not have the proper documents indicating a recent electrical inspection, contact us to schedule one.

Your property recently underwent renovation

Major remodeling or renovation projects can accidentally disturb your electrical system. We recommend having an inspection performed after renovation work to ensure that your wiring is safe from damage.

You are experiencing recurring electrical problems

Do your circuit breakers constantly trip? Are power surges a frequent occurrence? If electrical problems occur repeatedly, it’s time to have your system inspected. Damaged circuit breakers or overloaded outlets can quickly become fire and safety risks.

Your property suffered storm or water damage

Have you been affected by a recent storm or plumbing problem that involved flooding in your home? Your electrical system may have suffered damage as well. Give us a call to have your property inspected. We will provide any necessary electrical repairs or replacements.

Is Your Home a Fire Hazard?

Faulty Wiring

Fault wiring can result in fires and other safety hazards and is among the leading causes of property damage throughout the country. This is why we encourage customers to have electrical inspections performed before renovating their property or purchasing a new home.

Damaged Wires

Damaged wires can cause sparks that lead to fires. Your electronics might also fail if your electrical system isn’t working right. Having regular electrical inspections can help you identify problems before they wind up costing you more money when they cause major problems.

Electrical Panels

Electrical panels are the housing for your home’s circuit breakers. In the event of a power surge, short circuit, or circuit overload, the breakers are designed to “trip,” which means they cut the electricity to that circuit. Circuit breakers are a vital safety feature designed to prevent electrical fires.

What happens if your electrical panel fails?

If a breaker fails to trip, the high amounts of electricity can melt the plastic coating of the wires and spark a fire. The entire electrical panel can also overheat, which can cause it to catch fire. 1.4 million electrical panels have been recalled due to fire hazards.

There have been a surprising number of electrical panel failures over the past few decades. In many cases, the panels work fine for years, giving homeowners the impression that nothing is wrong. In fact, most aren’t aware of what type of electrical panel they have until they receive a safety inspection.

Why Should You Have Your Meter Housing Inspected?

Bell encourages you to have your meter housing inspected. Our electricians have noticed some significant safety issues with homes that don’t have a slip sleeve on the electrical meter housing. With no slip sleeve, if the ground settles, the Xcel Energy wires can get ripped out, causing a short and a fire.

Most homeowners don’t regularly inspect their electrical systems, which means that problems with the meter base are usually identified by the following signs:

  • Flickering lights – If lights are flickering throughout the entire house, then there may be a serious issue related to the meter box connection or main service cable connection.
  • Partial power outage – A partial power outage may occur when 120-volt wires malfunction.
  • Certain appliances won’t turn on – If isolated appliances won’t turn on and all of the circuit breakers are switched on, then you may have a wiring issue caused by the meter base.
  • Meter base becomes hot to the touch

Does Your Home Have Aluminum Wiring?

The aluminum wiring installed in homes during the 1960s and 1970s is considered a serious fire hazard. Problems with installation, outlet connections, and the metal itself result in wiring that degrades and loosens over time. This softer metal oxidizes more readily and suffers from greater expansion and contraction.

There’s a persistent myth that if a home was wired with aluminum 50 years ago and no fires have started, it’s safe. The problem with this assumption is that when new owners move in, they will put different demands on the system. With a change in occupancy comes a change in use, and that’s when problems often show up.

Older properties may feature outdated electrical systems that can’t keep up with our increasing technological demands. We can help you upgrade them so that your property runs efficiently and meets current building codes.

An electrical safety inspection in Denver helps protect your investment and your family. When you work with our experts at Bell Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical, expect efficient and thorough service.
