What Does an Electrician Do?

Electricians are skilled professionals who design, install, maintain, and repair electrical systems, ensuring power safely reaches and operates in homes and other building types. Their work spans from reading blueprints and installing wiring, lighting, and power systems to diagnosing and fixing electrical malfunctions.

Certified electrical technicians are essential for the safety and functionality of electrical infrastructures and must adhere to strict codes and regulations to prevent hazards. Whether upgrading an outdated system, performing routine maintenance, or responding to emergencies, electricians ensure your reliance on electricity continues without interruption.

What Does a Home Electrical Inspection Include?

A home electrical inspection thoroughly evaluates a residence's electrical system to ensure safety, functionality, and compliance with current electrical codes. When repair work is required, an inspection is performed to identify the full scope of the problem. During an inspection, an electrician will assess various components, including electrical panels, wiring, outlets, and switches, for wear and tear, damage, or improper installation.

The inspection covers grounding systems, surge protection, and the proper function of circuit breakers and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets, particularly in areas exposed to moisture, like bathrooms and kitchens. Lighting fixtures, fans, and the condition of outdoor electrical systems are also reviewed.

This review of your electrical system provides an opportunity to evaluate your electrical system's capacity to handle current loads and identify any potential for overloading or fire hazards. Inspectors also look for outdated wiring technologies, like knob and tube wiring, that may require upgrading.

How Often Should Electrical Systems be Inspected?

It's advisable to have your home's electrical system inspected every 3 to 5 years. This frequency ensures your system remains safe and functional amidst changes in appliance usage and advancements in electrical standards. Performing biannual inspections on GFCI outlets is recommended for ongoing safety.

Some other common reasons to book a residential electrical inspection include:

  • When you're purchasing a new home or older property.
  • When you've experienced frequent circuit breaker problems.
  • There are problems with your lighting.
  • You're planning to upgrade your appliances.
  • You're purchasing additional appliances.
  • You've decided to invest in a significant home renovation.
  • You've noticed unusual smells, sounds, or heat from electrical components.
