Electrical Safety Inspections

Home inspections make good sense whether buying, building, or selling. Understanding your home’s systems and components are critical when it comes to purchase, repair and maintenance decisions. The one system that is of greatest concern to home buyers and home owners is the electric components. Very few home inspectors are qualified to make a complete detailed assessment of an electrical system. Kettering Electric is licensed by the State of Ohio. Our basic home inspection is an inspection of the electrical system that exceeds industry standards for home inspections.
The inspection includes:

 

Removal and Inspection of Wiring Devices
  • We Check the Main Electrical Panel
  • We Check the Furnace & A/C Wiring
  • We Check the Basement / Crawl Spaces
  • We Check the Secondary Electrical Panels
  • We Check the Living Area
  • We Check the Smoke Detectors 
  • We Check the GFI for proper locations and working condition
 
A representative number of devices will be checked. Typically, we check 20% of the devices but if we find problems in some of the devices, we increase the number of devices that we check so that we can better assess the probability that the problems will be present in other areas.
 
Inspection of the Main Panel and Sub Panels
  • Check for proper grounding of supplemental systems such as telephone and cable television and the integrity of the connections.
  • Checking the integrity of the water meter bonding jumper if it is present.
  • Check for the presence of a driven ground rod and the integrity of the connection.
  • Check to make sure all wire sizes are promptly install with the right breaker
  • Check critical areas for potential corrosion problems that may result from improper connections or the use of dissimilar metals.
  • Check for alum wire and make sure the connection are promptly installed 
 
So if you are looking for a professional inspection electrical company then please call us. If YOU ARE BUYING a house...don't leave it up to the home inspectors. This is too critical for a simple pass through inspection.
