Why You Must Have an Electrical Contractor Inspect Your Home
May 25, 2023
What do home buyers, home renovators, and safety-conscious homeowners all have in common? They all need to hire an electrical contractor for an inspection! Here’s why:
Electrical Inspections are Required to Receive Building Permits
In order to receive a building permit for your Southwest Florida home you will first need to have an electrical inspection done on your home. These inspections are required whether you are working on a remodel or a new build. You can find more information on inspection and building permit requirements on the Collier County website.
Electrical Inspections Ensure the Safety of Your Home
Electrical inspections are more than just bureaucratic necessity— these inspections really do keep you safe! An electrical contractor can ensure your GFCI outlets are correctly wired, whether your circuit breaker is at risk of overload, if any wires are frayed or damaged, and more. Catching these problems early can prevent electrical fires and electrocutions, among other dangers.
Your Mortgage Lender May Require An Inspection
If you are buying or selling a home, you’ll want to be prepared for an electrical inspection. Most lenders require an electrical inspection before they approve a mortgage loan. Even if you are purchasing a home in cash, it’s unwise to waive an electrical inspection. These inspections are necessary to keep you and your family safe, as well as to keep your home in tip-top electrical shape.
An Electrical Contractor Will Fix Issues Home Inspectors Find
A home inspector may be able to identify issues you have with the electrical system in your home, but they won’t be able to fix them. By calling an electrical contractor, you can not only have an issue diagnosed but your electrical contractor can also come up with solutions to fix the problem.
