Why is an Electrical Inspection Important?

We use our electrical systems without even thinking about them. We plug into outlets, flip switches, and turn on electrical appliances dozens of times a day without giving our actions a second thought. 

We use our electrical systems 24-7, more than our heating and cooling units and plumbing. Electricity flows through your Washington home every moment of the day. Even battery-operated devices, such as cell phones and portable oxygen concentrators, need electricity to recharge. 

Electricity plays an essential role in your Tacoma home’s infrastructure. With so much riding on your electrical system, it makes good sense to maintain it. 

Resicon LLC can help. We offer plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) solutions.  Our licensed electricians can help keep your home safe by inspecting your electrical system and repairing or upgrading components. 

You will gain peace of mind after an electrical system checkup and feel confident plugging in, switching on, and running lights, appliances, and HVAC equipment when you schedule an electrical system checkup. 

Safety and Your Electrical System

Safety is the primary reason to maintain your electrical infrastructure. A thorough checkup may uncover worn wiring and other components that could lead to electric shock, arcing, and fire. 

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments in the U.S. responded to an average of 32,620 home fires involving electrical distribution and lighting equipment every year from 2015 to 2019. Wiring and related equipment cause 68 percent of those fires. The organization notes that faulty wiring in concealed spaces, such as attics or walls, is dangerous because it can spark a fire that burns undetected. 

At Resicon, we want to prevent your home from becoming a fire statistic. An inspection may uncover worn wiring, damaged outlets, and defective switches in your home. We may find improperly installed fixtures and an outdated electrical panel. We can repair, replace, or upgrade components to improve your system and safeguard your well-being.   

Our goal is preventing electrical system breakdowns, circuit overloading, fire potential, and other dangers.  We recommend an inspection every three to five years. 

Additional Reasons for an Inspection

If you recently remodeled, built an addition, or bought your Tacoma home, an inspection can ensure the electrical work is sound. 

Have any unlicensed do-it-yourselfers tinkered with your electrical system? We can identify poorly installed fixtures and repairs that violate local codes. Let our pros correct subpar work. 

Do you have enough power for additional appliances, entertainment, security devices, and lighting you plan to add to your home? If you are considering a new electric stove or heat pump instead of a gas stove or gas furnace, an inspection will help determine if you need to upgrade your electrical panel. 

Our Resicon experts are happy to offer guidance about energy-saving upgrades that save money on utility bills. Ask us anything about your electrical system. We are ready to assist you.
