When you buy a new home it is always prudent to hire a home inspector to examine and evaluate the structure and the internal workings of your potential purchase to ensure that everything is working correctly. While a general home inspector works on your behalf to cover all the areas to be inspected in a specified time frame; in some instances this may not be enough to assure your complete peace of mind.
Shorts, Faults & Failures
The electric system within your home is intricate and keeping your electrical system safe and up to date is an important priority for every homeowner. Shorts, faults and failures in your electric system can result in safety efficiency and fire hazards. A home inspector may not always have the education or experience required to understand the electrical system within your home. To ensure the complete safety of your home, contact the professionals at Burley Electrical Services for a comprehensive electrical inspection.
Old Home Electrical Wiring
Older homes in particular have the greatest need for a Burley Home Electrical Inspection since so many modern gadgets such as phones; TV’s, tablets and kitchen appliances are drawing power from the electrical system within the home. Statistically older homes are overtaxed and are not designed to divert power to so many appliances at one time which may result in an electrical short. In homes that are more than 20 years old, the electrical wiring may not be up to standard and need to be either repaired or replaced.
One of the greatest benefits of a Burley Home Electrical inspection is the experience and expertise of the inspector in all matters electrical.
A Burley Home Electrical Inspector examines the property to make sure that the home can keep up with the modern demands of technology and concentrate on the following points:
• Electrical Fire Safety – Examining the wiring and electrical boxes to ensure there is no risk for electrical fires in the home.
• Electrical Service Panel – Inspect the panel for wear, and examine the panel for smoky residues which may indicate a blown fuse or older out of date components. For example panels with older round fuses require converting over to circuit breaker panels.
• Electrical Wiring – Old wiring can be much more complicated to maintain. A Burley Electrical Inspection can identify the wiring in your home and tell you whether it is safe or outdated which will require new wiring.
• Outside Electrical Outlets – one electrical component on your property that can sometimes be overlooked in the outside outlets that are exposed to the elements.
Home Energy Electrical Efficiency
It’s not just current electrical systems that homeowners should be concerned with, it’s also the future. One of the greatest benefits of a Burley Electrical Inspection is the savings that can be gained from the efficiency of an updated system. Systems that are more than 20 years old can be especially expensive to run. Replacing the breakers in your home and repairing energy shorts puts extra cash in your pocket and reduces the costs of owning your home. Saving money is a huge plus, but there are some major risks associated with using an outdated system. A Burley Home Electrical Inspection can find potential concerns before they become a problem within your home as well as save you money.
