How An Electrical Panel Inspection Can Keep You Safe & Sound

Safe is one of the first words that comes to mind when we’re thinking of how we want our homes to be. A solid foundation and a sturdy roof are needed to protect against outside threats. Safety inside is just as important. The condition of your electrical panel is one of the key elements of your home comfort system that should be checked regularly to ensure your home remains a haven and not a disaster. An electrical panel inspection is more than a routine check. It’s a necessary step to get the “safe & sound” environment we all desire.

The team at Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air believe our most important job is to make sure our customers are safe in their homes with well running home comfort systems. That’s why Dixie is the only company with the “Safe & Sound” Service, aimed at preventing a deadly fire in your home. Unfortunately, this is more important in our area than others. 

Did you know that Alabama leads the nation in house fires? Many homes in our state have the original electrical systems that were installed when they were built, many of them in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time, aluminum wire was the norm instead of copper. Copper is a safer conduit of electricity. If you suspect your home is wired with aluminum, and it has been more than one year since your last electrical system inspection, it’s time to call Dixie to keep your loved ones safe and sound.

Why schedule an electrical panel inspection?

For many homeowners, the electrical panel is just a box that distributes power. However, its purpose goes beyond that. It protects our homes from power surges, potential electric fires, and any other hazards associated with shifts in electric current. Think of your electrical panel as a guardian that works behind the scenes to keep you safe and sound.

Electrical panels can wear out over time. They can become outdated, overloaded, or damaged. Ignoring these changes can lead to significant dangers such as fires, electrocutions, or costly damage to household appliances. An electrical panel inspection should be at the top of your list of preventive measures.
