Electrical Systems Inspection 

There are multiple components that must work in harmony to provide electricity to a home. These components make up the electrical system. The goal of the electrical system is to provide safe and efficient functionality to a home. An electrical systems analysis provides our clients with a written opinion of the electrical system’s performance at the time of inspection, including:

  • Service Entrance and Panels
  • Branch Circuits, Connected Devices and Fixtures

Service Entrance and Panels

Your family’s safety is a top priority. Your A-Pro inspector identifies and reports all defects in the main service panel and service entrance. It is important to remember that your inspector, while conducting a visual inspection, will be limited as to what can and cannot be inspected. Generally, homeowners are responsible for everything that happens after the attachment to the meter.

Branch Circuits, Connected Devices and Fixtures

Your A-Pro inspector examines and reports on the home’s branch circuit wiring, noting visual damage and where it exits the home’s main and subpanels to a point of connection for occupant use. The inspection and report includes working status of:

  • Lights
  • Plugs
  • Switches
  • GFCI Proper Placement
  • Proper Grounding
