Importance of Electrical Inspections & Maintenance
Electricity can be a potential fire hazard and quickly turn to an emergency, so an efficient electrical system needs to be properly grounded. If there is a lack of grounding in your electrical system, the electricity does not have a clear path to the ground. This means that it can potentially cause a fire in the area where it is having trouble. To protect your home, it’s important to schedule regular inspections and maintenance services for your electrical system.
When to schedule an electrical inspection in Austin:
- Before you buy a new home
- If you’re planning on selling your home
- If you frequently pay for electrical repairs
- If you notice a dead outlet or switches that don’t work
- When you add a new major appliance to your home
- If your home is more than 40 years old
- Before you do major home renovations
