Home Safety Inspection Report

These days home safety inspections are often supported by provincial governments or local councils so that there is almost no excuse to avoid ordering an expert electrician to perform an audit at your house. In order to remove any fears, let’s take a look at what happens during an inspection and, more importantly, why you need an electrical safety check.

  • A safety check involves making sure your electrical circuits and equipment are not overloaded. Deficiencies and potential problems are easily highlighted so that any electrical hazards in the installation can be rectified immediately.
  • Many older houses that have not been inspected for many years may still be equipped with faulty earthing or bonding which means they may be a time bomb waiting to explode.
  • Only approved electrical home safety inspectors are authorized to carry out government funded safety inspections so you are assured of getting a thorough assessment.

 

During an assessment the electrician will do a visual audit and run some detailed tests with the power switch off. Once the tests are completed your system is restored to its original condition and you will receive advice of the trained electrician along with an explanation of any concerns.

The report you receive contains an assessment of the overall condition of your electrical installation and whether it is safe or in need of work. It will summarize the results of the tests and any limitations that existed when the testing was done along with a list of items that need attention.

The main reason for having an electrical inspection done is simply to have peace of mind knowing that you are safe, especially in in the following situations an inspection is vital if:

  • Your house is more than 25 years old and has not had a recent inspection.
  • You have old wiring in your house.
  • You have any concerns about equipment that has been operating erratically, especially if appliances more than 5 years old.
  • You are selling your property. This is a good selling point to present to any potential buyers.
  • You are buying a property. Know what you are getting before you commit.
  • If you have had do-it-yourself electrical work done.

 

An added advantage of having an electrical services inspection of your property is that it could uncover some issues which, once repaired, can actually save you money. This is the cause the inspection will also involve recommendations for replacing light bulbs with green energy alternatives and suggestions about other power saving options you could undertake.
