How Often Should I Schedule An Electrical Safety Inspection?

If you live in the Weber County and Davis County area, you may be wondering how often you should have electrical safety inspections. The general rule is once approximately every 5 years. However, you may want them more frequently if your home is 40 years or older.

Other times this is a good idea include if you're remodeling or about to add a major appliance. Here's a sample of what should be on the checklist your electrical contractor professional provides you with for your inspection:

  • Make sure light switches and electrical outlets are in proper working order
  • Ensure that you even have enough outlets and switches to accommodate modern day demand
  • Check for overuse of extension cords to supply enough electric
  • Do you have GFCIs in areas where water and electric are both in use?
  • Have these outlets been tested in the past 30 days?
  • Look for presence of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Clean condition of oven's hood
  • Electrical appliances with frayed cords or located too close to water or heat producing source
  • Proper ventilation for systems like HVAC and dryer
  • Condition and age of electrical panel
  • No flickering of lights or alarming sounds like buzzing or sizzling
  • Strange smells including burning, fishy, rotten egg, or urine smell that actually can indicate wire or plastic housing burning smells

These are just a few examples of details of a checklist that should be used by your professional and then shared with you. For all of your electrical safety inspections for your Layton home, make the wise choice to call on us, today, and ensure your family's safety.
