Why Should You Get A Whole-Home Electrical Inspection?
Our electrical systems in our homes are unsung heroes, providing electricity to power our technological devices, appliances and deliver regulated air and water to us almost instantly. However, that network of pulsing energy just behind your walls can be very dangerous. Did you know there are over 50,000 electrical fires per year in the United States alone?
When electricity is not regulated or insulated properly it can quickly escape and cause big damage – not to mention it poses a serious risk of injury! You always want to know that your home’s electrical network is safe and reliable. That’s why Arnold Electric Services offers a whole-home electrical inspection. We want our customers to be informed about their homes and avoid any electrical disasters.

When Does Your Home Need An Electrical Inspection?
There are some specific situations where whole-home electrical inspections are really important to your safety. Taking the time to let a certified electrician review your home and recommend adjustments or improvements can save you time, money and potential injuries to you or your family.
Buying A Century Home
Any time you are purchasing a home over a hundred years old your electrical systems are sure to be outdated and dangerous to use. An electrical inspection is necessary to ensure you have safe power in your home that follows electrical codes.
Purchasing a Resale Home
Although the home you are purchasing may be built in more recent years, homes that were previously owned could have been repaired incorrectly. Any unknown renovations or DIY repairs could result in a dangerous situation. Licensed electricians can ensure that all your wiring is set up correctly and there are no tampered with systems.
Adding electrical load to your system requires an experienced electrician to make sure your existing system will work with the addition. If you do not have an inspection done you may damage your existing electrical capabilities.
Home Insurance Clearance
Some home insurance companies periodically require that your home get an electrical inspection to continue being covered. If you switch home insurance companies, the new agency will also often ask for a recent electrical inspection.
