Whether you are selling your home, preparing to purchase a new home, or are looking to conduct a thorough home safety inspection, R & A has you covered. When you choose R & A as your professional electrical wiring and safety inspector, you can be confident that your home electrical inspection will be done right.
It is good practice to have an experienced home safety inspector to check wiring conditions in the main electrical panel. There are dangerous voltages inside these panels, so inspections should be performed by experienced electricians only. R & A’s technicians are receiving continuous training to stay updated on modern technology and industry standards. If labeling is missing, unclear, or inaccurate, R & A’s licensed electricians can trace circuits and label breakers properly.
Perhaps your electrical system is outdated and needs to be modernized. Keep in mind that your electrical service is limited by the lowest size and rating of each separate component. If you upgrade the amperes on your main electrical panel, but any of your other system components, such as your service cable, the meter or meter box, or the size of the main disconnect breaker is still the lower size or rating, you aren’t receiving the optimum benefit from your electrical investment. Call R & A today and have one of our experienced technicians evaluate your current electrical system and make recommendations on how you can maximize the benefit you are receiving from the service you are paying for.
R & A will test receptacle polarity, voltage, and GFCI functionality. A receptacle with GFCI (or, Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupter) functionality is intended to prevent electrical shock. When working properly, the outlet or breaker is designed to trip off if even the slightest current imbalance is detected. GFCI receptacles should be installed in areas susceptible to moisture. It is important to find those receptacles that are not functioning properly, and tripping off incorrectly. A well-trained R & A inspector will also test for receptacles with mechanical problems like loose or broken unit pieces, or worn out contacts. Receptacle wiring that fails voltage drop testing at full 15 ampere load generally indicates improper electrical wiring, or loose connections. Don’t leave your safety to chance. Know the electrical health of your home.
Be cautious with a previous owner’s “handy work.” Unusual wiring that might have been done by a previous homeowner might fail to meet industry and safety standards and should be inspected if for no other reason than to prevent a potential fire. Receptacles with reversed polarity and incorrectly wired GFCI receptacles are often found when the previous homeowner installed electrical wiring themselves. An R & A inspector can identify failures and ensure your electrical and safety alert systems, like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, are functioning properly. Don’t wait to discover an electrical nightmare. With so many unknowns posing a risk to your health and safety, you can rest easy knowing R & A handled all of your safety and electrical inspection testing.
