Have you ever thought about how many wires are running through your home? All of the electrical outlets, light fixtures, and cable hookups have some kind of wiring to make them work. What happens when these wires get old and outdated? One of the best things you can do as a homeowner, potential buyer, or renter is to hire a licensed electrical contractor to do a thorough electrical inspection. You do not want to be on the wrong end of an electrical fire.
A very common mistake is to purchase a home that has faulty wiring. Home sellers are not required to provide an inspection, so it is always a good idea to have an independent one done for your benefit before purchasing a home to possibly avoid a large future expense. This will cause problems in the long run. Even if your heart is set on the home, an inspection will help to put it in perspective, and may even give you some wiggle room with the price.
As a homeowner, especially if you have inherited an old family home, these inspections could possibly save your life. Outlets should be updated to add grounded outlets, and to replace any aluminum wire that may exist. Save yourself the stress of finding these problems out later, and have an electrician conduct an inspection. They take just a few hours, and are well worth it. The key is to be proactive in finding electric problems, so it is definitely worth your time!
