Home Electrical Inspection It is good practice to have an experienced home safety inspector check wiring conditions in the main electrical panel. There are dangerous voltages inside these panels, so inspections should be performed by licensed specialists only. Our 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.

Electrical Panels & Home Rewiring

Perhaps your electrical system is outdated and needs to be modernized.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.

GFCI Testing

We 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 receptacles that are not functioning properly and tripping off incorrectly. A well-trained 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.

Home Safety & Fire Hazard Detection

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.
