Performing Comprehensive Home Inspections for Electrical Safety in St. Cloud
You likely don’t give much thought to your electricity in your home, since the majority of it runs behind your walls or underground. However, electrical problems can develop without your knowledge and, if they aren’t addressed, these problems can create fire hazards and other serious risks for your household.
The St Cloud Electrical Code sets out certain safety standards for the electrical systems in your home or business, and an electrical home inspection can inform you whether you are meeting those standards. At Neighborhood, our technicians can perform a thorough inspection and provide you with a detailed list of recommendations, including immediate problems and opportunities for improvement for efficiency.
You may want to schedule an electrical home inspection when any of the following apply:
- You’re buying a home or property
- Your home is more than 40 years old
- You are planning or just had a major remodel or renovation
- You are adding a major appliance
These inspections not only work to keep you safe, but they also help to reduce costs and advise you of ways you can improve your electrical setup. We can identify and address errors made by previous contractors, tell you when your wires are outdated, and more. Our inspections check the following and more:
- The condition and operation of outlets and switches
- Electric shock hazards
- Proper operation of AFCIs
- Grounding systems
- Surge protection
- Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Your electrical panel, including amps and labels
- Outdoor electrical systems
