During an inspection, Jim Brown who has been an electrician for 45 years does a thorough electrical examination of the home. Verifying all outlets are in working order whether a common 3 prong or GFCI receptacles are wired correctly and in working order. We do an intense electrical distribution panel inspection as well as the outside main disconnect and all sub-panels are properly properly wired. An improperly sized electrical distribution panel could be sending too much power, ultimately damaging anything plugged into the outlets and posing a fire hazard. Next, we will look at the wiring to check
for outdated, damaged, or loose wires which could cause a short in the electrical system. We make certain that the proper voltage is sent to each appliance. Incorrect voltage could cause units to malfunction or stop working altogether. Lastly we examine the grounding and bonding of the home or business. Grounding is for the electrical system and bonding is for the equipment.
