Questions to Ask During an Electrical Inspection

Electrical Inspection QuestionsIs it time for an electrical inspection? There’s a lot your electric service company needs to cover to ensure everything is functioning properly and up to code. To help ensure your electrician provides the service you need, it’s a good idea to have questions prepared beforehand. Here’s what you should always remember to ask your electrical contractor during an inspection.

1. Do I need to update my wiring?

One of the most important questions for your electrician during an electrical inspection is whether your wiring is old or faulty. Taking care of electrical repairs and updates is extremely important. Additionally, if your home has aluminum wiring, it’s a good idea to replace it as soon as possible.

2. Am I using extension cords and power strips appropriately?

It’s always a good idea to have your extension cords and power strips examined during an electrical inspection. Overloading these can be dangerous and could result in a fire. Ensure your home is safe from this hazard before your electrician leaves.

3. When will I need my next inspection?

Scheduling an electrical inspection regularly can help you save money in the long run. Proactively addressing issues before they escalate is a “best practice.” Ask your electrician when you should plan to schedule your next inspection in order to stay on top of updates and repairs.
