Why An Annual Home Safety Inspection Pays Off


You take your car in for a yearly inspection to ensure everything’s working the way it should. Why wouldn’t you do the same for your home?

Electrical home safety checks are vital, because statistically, a large number of residential fires result from malfunctioning electrical systems. In 2011, an estimated 47,700 home structure fires reported to U.S. fire departments involved some type of electrical failure or malfunction contributing to their ignition, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. Many of them were preventable.

Wes Carver Electric is a Bucks County electrician offering a comprehensive 26-point home safety check. In this blog, we’ll get into what an electrical home safety check entails and why it pays off in the long run.

What Is An Electrical Home Safety Check?

In an electrical home safety check, a licensed electrician inspects 26 separate pieces of your home’s electrical system to ensure each is operating safely and efficiently. Items checked include:

  • Main electrical panel and sub panels
  • Outdoor electrical meter & service cables
  • Basement Wiring
  • GFCI receptacles
  • Smoke Detectors

Furthermore, Wes Carver electricians take care to respect your home, wearing protective foot coverings to avoid spreading dirt and cleaning up after any messes.

After Wes Carver Electric conducts a home safety check, we immediately generate a report indicating any areas of concern, as well as a written estimate of any needed repair work. Your licensed electrician will explain all aspects of this report and answer any of your questions.

What Are the Benefits of a Home Safety Check?

Peace of mind knowing you’re less likely to suffer an electrical fire, since your entire system has been reviewed by licensed professionals
Knowledge of any parts of your electrical system functioning less efficiently than they should – which means replacing them could save you money in the long run
Access to a licensed electrician who can address any concerns you have about your electrical system in person
Prevention of problems BEFORE they start, as opposed to after they’ve caused your home big damages requiring expensive repairs
