Electrical Inspections & Maintenance

Electrical Inspection

Electrical inspections are an important part of purchasing and owning a home or business. When you have a property inspected by a highly trained electrical inspector, you are able to make an informed choice on the state of the electrical system prior to purchase. If you already own a building, proper inspection can save you money by discovering issues before they become a problem and providing the maintenance you need.

It is crucial that electrical inspections and maintenance services are completed on a scheduled basis. Annual electrical inspections & maintenance should be performed on the following equipment to ensure:

  • Electrical panels, switchboards, and section cabinets are up to code
  • Electric equipment is in a proper state of cleanliness
  • Cables or other electric equipment are still in the original position
  • Conduit penetrations are still in good condition
  • There is no evidence of overheating, burning or tracking
  • Specifications are checked
  • Mechanical ventilation, if required, operates
  • Over current protection devices are checked for rating and settings
  • Contacts and arc screens on all devices are checked, reconditioned, or replaced
  • Movable parts of all electrical devices are tested and operating correctly
  • All electrical connection points are checked for tightness
  • Hot spots are detected with thermographs
  • Operation of batteries, condition of connections, hold downs, ventilation, and tray tightness
  • Computer monitored electrical systems are checked for specifications
  • Proper circuit insulation measurement and wire sizing
  • All circuits match the insulation measurements previously established.
