Buying a home is probably the largest purchase you will make in your lifetime. As electrical problems are hidden within the walls of your home, they are not visible by the naked eye. In general, realtors will recommend that you get a general home inspection. In out opinion, certain defects and concerns are overlooked by a general home inspector. Hiring an electrician to do a full electrical inspection is the best way to go. Typically, the seller will pay for the inspection, as it is a small thing to lose a sale over. Taking this route will give you the piece of mind in knowing that all safety and repair items are identified before you sign on the dotted line. In addition, if there are any items that need to be repaired or replaced, Leo’s Electric Corp. can offer you an estimate to use in your negotiations with the homeowner. Leo’s Electric Corp. also performs home inspections to troubleshoot your existing home. If your lights flicker or you are wondering how long your 40 year old wiring will hold out, we can help you. Many times, older homes have modifications that are not electrically sound. In addition, the service panel, outlets, and other electrical components simply wear out and need to be replaced. Leo’s Electric’s home inspections follow the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Leo’s Electric’s inspection includes all the electrical systems within your home. If we locate items that are not up to current code, then we can discuss what steps need to be taken to bring your home within the most recent electrical codes. Leo’s Electric Corp. also inspects the main disconnects, main panel for proper connections, grounding, and deterioration of the wires that occurs over time. You will be provided with a detailed, report of what we found, and recommendations to correct any deteriorated or non-functioning items. If we uncover any electrical modifications that were improperly installed, we will notify you of the defects as well.
