Electrical System Inspection (Panels, Wiring, Safety Features)

Powering Your Home Safely

A safe and reliable electrical system is crucial for the functionality and safety of your home. Faulty wiring, outdated components, or improper grounding can pose serious safety hazards, like electrical fires or shock. Our electrical system inspection from Aspen Home Inspections provides a comprehensive assessment, identifying any existing issues or potential problems that could arise in the future.

Why Get a Home Electrical System Inspection?

With our detailed electrical system inspection, you gain valuable insight into the health and safety of your home’s electrical system. This empowers you to make informed decisions about maintaining and upgrading your electrical system for continued safety and functionality.

  • Safety First: Our inspection prioritizes your safety by identifying potential hazards like faulty wiring, overloaded circuits, or improper grounding that could lead to electrical fires or shock.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing the condition of your electrical system gives you peace of mind and allows you to budget for future upgrades or replacements.
  • Modernization Needs: Electrical systems can become outdated over time. Our inspection identifies the need for upgrades to ensure your system can handle the demands of modern appliances and electronics.
  • Informed Decisions: If you’re buying a home, an electrical system inspection empowers you to negotiate repairs or request a lower price if significant issues are found.

What Our Electrical System Inspection Includes:

  • Distribution Panel (Breaker Box): We inspect the distribution panel (breaker box) for signs of overheating, damage, or improper breaker operation. We also check for adequate capacity to handle your home’s electrical needs.
  • Subpanels (if applicable): Homes with sub panels will have these inspected for proper functionality and safe operation.
  • Wiring: We visually inspect accessible wiring for signs of damage, deterioration, or improper installation that could lead to overheating or electrical fires. We also check for aluminum wiring (if present) as it can pose safety risks if not properly maintained.
  • Grounding: We verify that your home’s electrical system is properly grounded to minimize the risk of electrical shock.
  • GFCI Outlets: We test Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets in bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas required by code. These outlets help prevent shock hazards in case of moisture exposure.

What You Get After Your Home Electrical System Inspection:

Following the inspection, you’ll receive a detailed report that includes:

  • Clear descriptions of any identified issues with the distribution panel, wiring, grounding, or GFCI outlets.
  • Photos for better understanding of the problem areas.
  • Recommendations for repairs or upgrades by a licensed electrician to ensure a safe and functional electrical system.

With Aspen Home Inspections, you get a professional and thorough electrical inspection that empowers you to make informed decisions about your home’s power system.
