Whether you’re buying a new house or you’ve spent decades in your home, keeping an eye on your electrical system is essential. With thorough and affordable home electrical inspection services, Legacy Home Services is proud to help keep New Braunfels homeowners safe.
The Critical Importance of Electrical Safety Inspections
Did you know that electrical failures spark an estimated 45,000 or more house fires every year? On average, these electricity-related conflagrations claim 390 lives and account for around $1.5 billion in damages. In most cases, the fires can be traced back to electrical currents arcing between damaged wires or fixtures.
Many of these tragic events could have potentially been prevented. Sadly, because electrical components are generally hidden away inside walls and ceilings, dangerous problems often aren’t detected until it’s too late. Consequently, periodic safety inspections are the only reliable way to unearth hazardous electrical issues in time to repair them.
What Does an Electrical Inspection Include?
Unlike general home inspections, Legacy Home Services electrical inspections are performed by qualified, well-trained electricians. During the inspection process, we meticulously check and test your entire electrical system and all related components. This includes wiring, outlets, light fixtures, circuits, service panels, appliances, meters, and more.
Our inspection protocols are carefully designed to comply with all relevant codes and official National Electrical Code (NEC) standards. Once completed, we’ll provide a full overview of our findings and detail any issues that may require further attention. We can also recommend additional solutions and help you prioritize and schedule replacement or repair services as needed.
