Have you considered getting an electrical inspection but not sure if it’s worth it?
Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air has been servicing Alabama’s electrical needs for over 100 years with our premier electrical service. As electrical experts, we recommend routine electrical inspections as a way to ensure the quality of your electrical system, as well as the safety of your family.
A pivotal way to properly check on your system and protect your home against potential fires is with routine maintenance through annual electrical inspections.
Benefits of routine electrical inspections
While electricity has undoubtedly improved comfort and quality of life, it’s important to remember that an electrical system can also be a significant danger without regular maintenance.
Safety and fire protection
There are many benefits to annual electrical inspections, but safety is the utmost priority. A decreased risk of home electrical fires is a critical benefit. During an electrical inspection, one of our expert electricians will test your home for wiring problems that could lead to fires. Additionally, we will help to find the best way to protect your home from a fire, such as with protective items installed around the wires in your home.
Meet electrical coding standards
Another benefit is to check that your home is compliant with the state’s standards. Electrical inspections ensure that your home’s electrical system is properly functioning and safe. Additionally, this inspection helps you avoid fines caused by not being compliant with the state coding standards.
More efficient system operation
Electrical inspections help identify trouble spots before real damage occurs. By looking at the electrical panel, circuit, wiring, and other aspects of the electrical system, expert service technicians, such as our experienced Call Dixie electricians, will be able to note potential problems and solutions for avoiding malfunctions.
When to schedule an electrical inspection
Ultimately, the best way to assure continuous and safe electrical service is with routine maintenance. Our licensed Call Dixie electricians recommend annual electrical inspections.
