A well-maintained home electrical system is crucial. It ensures your system lasts longer and also gives you peace of mind knowing your home is safe. Electrical system maintenance can lower costs and reduce risks.
Your Arizona Electrical System Company Must Be Licensed
Your electrical system professional should be a trained, experienced technician for a local company licensed with the state of Arizona. Check the Arizona ROC (Registrar of Contractors) if you are unsure. A CR11 license means your electrical system company holds a commercial and residential license and can…
install, alter, and repair any wiring, related electrical material and equipment used in the generating, transmitting, or utilization of electrical energy less than 600 volts, including all overhead electrical wiring on public right-of-ways for signs and street decorations, and all underground electrical distribution systems of less than 600 volts serving private properties.
What You Need to Know About Electrical System Inspection, Maintenance
When buying or building a home, an electrical inspection should be performed. The inspection should include a thorough examination of all electrical wiring and connections. As part of a new maintenance program, your local electrician will perform an initial inspection. As a result, they will report on your property’s current safety and what might be needed now or later.
An annual preventive maintenance visit is recommended for all commercial and residential properties, new and old alike. Here are things your local electrician will examine during an inspection and annual maintenance visit.
- Fire prevention – Short circuits can trigger house fires. They can be caused by weak/loose wiring in the meter or the cabling. Electrical fires are usually caused by:
- Extension cords
- Faulty electrical outlets
- Faulty wiring
- Space heaters
- Worn-out light fixtures
- Lower risk of electrical surges – Surges can not only lead to short circuits, but they can also ruin your appliances. Your electrical system technician will check various wiring points to lower the risk of surges.
- Shock prevention – A small shock when you touch an electrical appliance shouldn’t send you into a panic, but shouldn’t be ignored. It not only can negatively impact your appliance’s performance, it can also ruin it. In addition, this is a red flag that there is a fault in the wiring, which can lead to more damaging problems.
Electrical Maintenance for Your Home or Commercial Property
It is imperative that you get the right electrical technician… A novice or amateur might just damage the electrical connections that could lead to different types of disasters, apart from you failing the inspection. –D&F Liquidators
