When Is an Electrical Inspection Required?

Homes and commercial buildings often require an electrical inspection when they are undergoing construction, undergoing repairs or renovations, or changing hands. An electrician visits the site to perform an inspection, making sure the electrical system installed complies with current safety standards.

If you need to schedule an electrical safety inspection, be sure to check with local authorities beforehand to know what criteria must be met.

Our Electrical Inspection Checklist

Our electricians in South Florida follow a six-step checklist during each inspection to make sure nothing gets missed. They start by inspecting each area of your property to assess the condition of the current electrical system. If they uncover any problems, they will recommend repairs and get to work once you approve them.

Here is how we assess the different electrical components on your property.

Wires and Power Outlets

  • Check for any exposed wires
  • Confirm all outlets and light switches are functional. There should be no buzzing or crackling sounds, broken covers, or discoloration
  • Inspect for damaged wires, such as fraying and broken components
  • Make sure no wires are hot to the touch
  • See if any cords are susceptible to pinching by doors, windows, or furniture
  • Confirm the wires and cords don’t contain any nails or staples
  • Check if surge protectors are used to protect electronic devices from unexpected power surges

Light Fixtures

Our staff may perform the following steps to inspect your lights to ensure you are safe from fire hazards:

  • Make sure all lightbulbs have the correct wattage for their corresponding fixtures
  • Check for a safety gap between lamps and other light fixtures and anything combustible
  • Test lights to see if any dim or flicker frequently
  • Determine whether any light fixtures need to be replaced

Electrical Panels and Circuit Breakers

Our team of licensed electricians offer electrical safety inspections in Florida and have the tools necessary to help you fix a defective electrical panel in your home. We can also work with you to upgrade or replace an outdated panel on your property.

Our team will perform the following steps while inspecting your electrical panel:

  • Confirm if the electrical panel has been updated recently
  • Make sure the cover on the electrical panel is not hot to the touch
  • Check for any tripped circuits
  • Inspect the property for a surge impression system, which would protect electrical components against a power surge

Electrical Fires

  • Make sure the property has at least one fire extinguisher readily available in case an electrical fire were to occur
  • Confirm all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are functional
  • Move any flammable items away from electrical appliances and light fixtures
  • Make sure the property has a clear emergency plan in case of a fire

Outdoors

The last component our technicians will check throughout the electrical inspection are your Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets. GFCI outlets help prevent electrocutions by shutting off the power when a person comes into contact with an electrical shock. All appliances and electrical equipment should be plugged into a GFCI power outlet for safety reasons.

We also check to make sure:

  • No debris or other obstructions are blocking the property’s exterior electrical outlets
  • There are cords designated for outdoor use

Our Whole-Home Generator Inspection Process

Generators are an essential part of any home in Florida. They provide homeowners like you with a backup power source in the event of a power outage, allowing you to continue using electrical appliances and other devices in the meantime.

Our team of residential electricians offer electrical services in Boca Raton and will inspect your generator to ensure it’s operating properly. It’s important to have your generator inspected at least once a year to make sure it’s functional. These are the steps we follow during each generator inspection.

1. Conduct an Exterior Visual Inspection

We closely inspect the exterior of the unit to make sure nothing is visibly damaged. Our team of electrical inspectors will check to see if the green light is on, meaning the system is activated and operating properly. I

f the red light is on, something is not right and requires further investigation. We also remove any debris or vegetation overgrowth around the unit that could obstruct airflow.

2. Change the Air Filter

Having a clean air filter is essential for efficient generator operation. Air filters quickly become clogged with dust, dander, and other contaminants that block airflow.

When the generator struggles to get enough air, it has to work double-time to keep up with power demands, putting premature wear and tear on the internal components. We will check your generator’s air filter for debris buildup and replace it if needed.

3. Change the Electrical Spark Plugs

Your generator has spark plugs that ignite fuel inside to start the engine. Most whole-home generators contain either one or two spark plugs, depending on the make, model, and size. Over time, these spark plugs get covered with dust and grime that needs to be cleaned off.

Our professionals offer generator inspections for homeowners in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and will take a look at your spark plugs to determine whether they can be cleaned or need to be replaced.

4. Conduct an Interior Visual Inspection

Now it’s time to look inside the unit. We will keep an eye out for any obvious signs of wear or damage, such as excess moisture or grime buildup. We will perform generator repairs and part replacements as needed.

5. Clean the System

Keeping your generator clean from the inside out will enhance its efficiency and longevity. Routine cleaning also reduces the risk of an electrical fire due to grease and grime buildup. We will clean all components thoroughly to keep your system in prime condition.

6. Run the Generator for a Couple of Minutes

While you probably use your generator frequently during storm season, it might not see much—if any—action the rest of the year. Long periods of inactivity can result in problems such as oil leaks or grease buildup.

Without routine electrical inspections, these problems with your generator would go unnoticed, potentially ruining the entire system. During our inspection, we will run the generator for a few minutes to make sure things are working properly. This simple step could save you a lot of money in the long run.

7. Check the Power Transfer Switch

The power transfer switch on your generator allows you to quickly switch over from your main power source to your backup power source in the event of an outage.

Depending on the type of power transfer switch your generator has, it will either initiate automatically or require manual operation. Our technicians will check the transfer switch box that houses the power transfer switch for any damage, debris buildup, or exposed wires.
