February 9, 2023
Electrical safety should be a primary concern for every property regardless of its age, size, or layout. While an electrical safety inspection may not always be top of mind for everyone, this service can offer several benefits that make them well worth performing. As a leading provider of residential and commercial electrical services, the team at Blue Crest Electric knows that every type of property can benefit from a thorough inspection. That is why we have compiled a list of 4 benefits of electrical safety inspections to demonstrate why they are well worth the cost, especially if your property has not been inspected for several years.
Why Should You Have an Electrical Safety Inspection Performed?
By choosing to have an electrical safety inspection performed at regular intervals for your property, you are choosing a solution that offers:
4 benefits of electrical safety inspections
1. Enhanced Electrical Safety
Regular safety inspections can highlight any potential electrical issues with your property that you may not have known about. This allows you to have each issue repaired before they become a significant hazard, keeping your home or commercial property safe by minimizing the risk of electrical fires, system failures, and overloaded devices.
2. Reduced Costs Over Time
An electrical fire or total system failure can be disastrous for any property as they can result in significant repair costs and/or replacement costs. This is especially true if you do not have sufficient insurance coverage, as these costs will require payment out of pocket. Regular electrical safety inspections can help you correct various issues before they cause an electrical fire or system failure, making them well worth performing. While these inspections cost money, they can prevent you from needing to pay far more than you were expecting in the future. To minimize the risk of these unexpected costs, consider budgeting for a thorough electrical inspection every 1 to 2 years as needed.
3. Increased Energy Efficiency
In addition to highlighting potential hazards, an electrical safety inspection can help to uncover areas of improvement for your current system. By upgrading outdated components, you can save money on your energy costs over time while increasing the functionality of your property. This can be especially beneficial for older properties that would benefit from an upgraded electrical panel or additional outlets.
4. Compliance with Modern Standards
Since electrical codes and standards change over time, it is crucial to ensure that your property is compliant with current safety and performance standards. An electrical inspection can help you determine if your property is compliant with these standards or if you will need to make certain changes to your system to become compliant. This compliance is crucial for obtaining insurance coverage for most types of properties, so it is always worth having an inspection performed before you shop for insurance.
