Electrical Troubleshooting

At WIREONE, we understand that any electrical problems with your home are a huge inconvenience to you and your family and can cause your daily life to grind to a halt. In addition to being an inconvenience, some electrical problems can pose serious threats to the safety of your family. Because you can’t see behind your walls, it’s often difficult to determine if you have a problem.

Electrical Troubleshooting

WIREONE recommends that all residential homeowners perform periodic electrical safety inspections. Without regular safety inspections, there could be serious problems that go unnoticed and untreated until they become a threat to your safety or cause other damage to your home.

What is an Electrical Home Inspection?

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards. The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the code that all electricians operate under when examining your home, and defines the parameters for minimum standards across the United States. During your residential safety inspection, our professional electrician will perform a 39-point inspection of your home and will work to uncover any problems with your home’s electrical system before they become serious issues. Upon completion of your electrical home inspection, WIREONE will provide a detailed, prioritized checklist including areas in need of immediate attention, recommendations for improvements, and potential upgrade possibilities.

When should you order an Electrical Home Inspection?

The recommended frequency of electrical safety inspections varies based on your home:

  • Every 10 years for an owner-occupied home
  • Every 5 years for a renter-occupied home
  • Every year for any home with a swimming pool
  • When purchasing a home
  • When adding a major appliance
  • When a home has a had a renovation

You should also have your home inspected any time it’s being prepared for sale or rent.

What's Happening with your Electrical System?

Some of the common unexplained problems homeowners encounter with their electrical system include:

  • Dimming lights, or lights doing strange things
  • Appliances behaving abnormally or sporadically malfunctioning
  • Unreliable outlets
  • Seemingly random power glitches
  • Breakers seem to trip at random

These problems are common, but they’re often left unresolved because their sources aren’t immediately clear. Even some professional electricians will only treat the symptoms of the problems, leaving the core causes untreated so that you’ll see the problems cropping back up again. This can also leave your home with terrible safety hazards.

Our professional electricians will always find and treat the root of issues so that the entirety of the problem is solved.

Electrical Safety Inspections

It’s very important that you call a professional as you notice any problems with your electrical system, but you can also keep your home as safe as possible by having regular inspections performed by a professional electrician. These inspections will:

  • Uncover any electrical circuits or equipment in your home that are overloaded
  • Find any potential fire hazards or shock risks
  • Reveal any defective electrical work or wiring
  • Highlight any lack of grounding or bonding

Our electrical safety inspections will also include tests of your wiring system and your electrical equipment. After the inspection is complete, we’ll discuss any problems we’ve found with you in plain English, and we’ll be sure that your electrical system is as safe and functional as possible.
