The Benefits of Electrical Inspections
Waiting for accidents before repairing your electrical equipment is courting disaster.

What to Expect from an Electrical Inspection
Electrical inspections entail a comprehensive assessment of every part of your electrical system, from its wires to its components. The National Electrical Code includes a precise list of inspection items, so it’s important to hire an inspector who’s compliant. We will:
- Verify that you’re using the right wattage light bulbs
- Check the condition of your outlets
- Identify shock and electrocution threats
- Make sure your arc fault circuit interrupters are working as they should
- Confirm that your grounding system is fully functional
- Validate your surge protection
- Make sure your smoke detectors are placed properly and fully operational
- Inspect your electrical panel’s labeling, operation, and amperage
- Assess your outdoor electrics
- Write up a comprehensive report of your electrical system
Everything from washers and dryers to phones and chargers places a demand on your circuits. Overloads can cause fires, so inspections will ensure that they aren’t occurring. Unlicensed handymen can cause serious electrical hazards, so call our licensed professionals at Wenbrooke Services at (240) 394-1500 to schedule an inspection.
How Often Do You Need an Inspection?
While inspections are required every 10 years, your household needs to be compliant with the National Electrical Code Corrections that are released every three years. When you become part of the Wenbrooke family, you can feel safe in the knowledge that we’ll keep you up to date with those changes. You should also schedule an inspection:
- Before a home upgrade
- After doing your own electrical work
- If your home has never been inspected since you bought it
- After you experience storm damage
- When you get new homeowners insurance
Code violations come with heavy fines, so trust Wenbrooke Services to keep you in the clear. Call us on (240) 394-1500.
