When’s the Last Time Your Home Saw an Electrician?

Too often we only call on people such as electricians when we have a problem that needs to be fixed.  But, in the long run, we would save ourselves much more hassle and more money if we find small problems before they became big problems.  So, when was the last time your home saw an electrician?  When you had an electrical problem?  At Flame our electricians are here to help with your residential electrical repair, but we would also like to encourage you to contact us BEFORE there is a major issue.

Electricity is not something to joke around with, and it is in your and your family’s best interests to make sure that the wiring in your home is safe and working properly.  Flame offers a comprehensive inspection that includes the following:

Check all switches: single pole, three ways and four way
Check for correct polarity on all 110 volt duplex devices
Check G.F.I. devices for proper operation
Check for correct grounding on all 110 volt duplex devices
Check G.F.I. devices for proper locations, as per electrical code
Check smoke detector 110 volt and battery for proper operation
Check carbon monoxide detector
Check electrical panel for correct labeling
Check for proper grounding in the electrical panel *
Check for proper grounding at the water meter *

Check for damaged electrical devices
Check for damaged electrical device covers in the house
Check for weatherproof covers on all outside devices
Check all outdoor lighting for proper operation

Check for proper operation on door bell system
Check dedicated circuits, furnace, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.
Check all breakers for loose wire connections

Some of these tasks, such as checking the carbon monoxide detector and the smoke detector, could be done yourself, but what an easy way to cross those items off of your list! If issues are found during the inspection, repairs can be done or, if necessary, residential electrical installation can be completed.  For more information about electrical services, contact Flame!
