When was your electrical system updated last?


If you own an older home, it is important to know when electrical updates were performed. As common electrical standards changed over the years, verifiable efforts should have been made to keep the home up to code. This is especially important in homes that are more than 50 years old. Electrical systems may just be outdated or old and this can make them potentially dangerous.


If you aren't certain if updates were done, our team can have an inspection performed to verify it for you. We recommend a more focused inspection process than the basic inspection that is done when you purchase the home. Having one of our professional electricians to complete a full inspection of your home can determine if any problems exist, such as faulty wiring and overloaded circuits.


Are your breakers properly labeled?


It is also very important to know which circuit breakers control which lights and outlets in your home. Often times, labels used to mark your breaker box can fade, or they simply may not make sense. We recommend that every homeowner take the time to determine which breakers control which sections of their house. From that information, you can create a comprehensive list, so you can determine immediately which circuit has the problem, if issues should arise.

Where is the main disconnect and how is it operated?


We also recommend every homeowner's know how to turn off the power in their home, if ever required. While this is not necessary on a regular basis, it will come in handy if you are ever performing home renovation work. If sudden problems occur with the electrical system that could present a fire hazard, being able to quickly shut down your power could be the difference between major and minor damages.


Most electrical work in your home should be performed by a professional electrician. Still, you should have a basic working knowledge of the electrical systems you have and their condition.
