In order to keep you and your home safe, you’ll need to have an electrical safety check every 3-5 years. Electrical safety checks usually involve things like making sure there are no electrocution hazards, verifying proper lightbulb wattage, testing the smoke detectors and the carbon monoxide detectors and checking the condition of the switches and outlets.

For multifamily housing, landlords are legally required to have an electrical inspection performed at least every 5 years. However, even residential and commercial businesses should have electrical inspections done at least once every 3-5 years. Electrical inspections are important in keeping you safe and making sure any and all defective electrical work is found and fixed. If you need professional electrical inspection services, don’t hesitate to call the experts at Edge Electric today!

Electrical inspections help to make sure your electrical systems are working properly and aren’t an electrical hazard. You should have an electrical safety inspection done every 3-5 years, but you may need to have your electrical system checked sooner if you notice your lights flickering, burning smells in your home, breakers tripping and fuses blowing frequently, hot switches or sockets or sparks from an outlet when you plug something in.

Helping with your own safety

There are some things you can do to help with your home’s electrical safety:

  • Some sources of residential electrical problems can be faulty appliances – if there is a problem with an appliance or its power lead it can create a fire risk, so it is safer to unplug the appliance and have it checked professionally for malfunction.

  • Of course, water and electricity to never mix – it is important to keep electrical appliances and sockets clear from all sources of water. In rooms like kitchens and bathrooms it can often be a good idea to install ground fault current interrupters (if they haven’t already been installed) to reduce the risk of electrocution. GFCI’s work by measuring that the current coming back is the same as the current going out, if the current isn’t returning then it is being grounded by something else – which could be a person. That’s when the GFCI cuts the current flow to prevent serious electrocution. They are also essential for outdoor electrics.

  • Don’t overload sockets or “daisy chain” multiple socket extensions (for example plugging a 6 socket extension into another 6 socket extension – you will overload the first extension, and the individual wall socket). This can create overheating problems and increase the risk of fire. If you have insufficient sockets for your PC, TV, DVD, Monitor, or computer peripherals, speak to Edge Electric about installing new sockets to handle the increased load.
