Electrical Inspections Non-Authority

Our Residential Safety Inspection Report combined with our inspection processes will locate issues and concerns to help you determine what repairs will be made and when they will be made. We will advise you as to critical safety concerns, moderate safety concerns, and nominal safety concerns in accordance with the NEC. Even if your home is brand new, you do not know how long a breaker or other device sat on a suppliers shelf or a contractors shelf before it was installed in your home, further you do not know if all connections are tight and secure, as loose connections cause electrical arcs.

This service for a home up to 3,000 square feet is $360.00. You have 3 systems within your home: Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing. Of these 3, only 1 can kill you. Here are the statistics from the National Fire Protection Association so you can see how important an annual safety inspection is for your home and family.

Fire departments responded to an estimated average of 46,700 home fires involving electrical failure or malfunction each year from 2015 to 2019.

  • These fires caused an estimated average of 390 civilian deaths and 1,330 civilian injuries each year from 2015 to 2019, as well as an estimated $1.5 billion in direct property damage a year.
  • Electrical failures or malfunctions were the second leading cause of electrical home fires from 2015 to 2019 accounting for 13% of home structure fires.
  • Three in ten fires (30%) involving electrical failure or malfunction occurred in the cold weather months from November through February.
  • Arcing served as the heat source in over three in five fires (63%) of home fires involving an electrical failure or malfunction in 2015–2019.

Fire departments responded to an estimated average of 32,160 home fires involving electrical distribution and lighting equipment each year from 2015 to 2019. 

  • These fires caused an estimated average of 430 civilian deaths and 1,070 civilian injuries each year from 2015 to 2019, as well as an estimated $1.3 billion in direct property damage a year.
  • Home fires involving electrical distribution and lighting equipment most often originated in a bedroom.
  • Wiring and related equipment were involved in just over two-thirds of home fires caused by electrical distribution and lighting equipment.
  • Approximately one-quarter of these fires occurred between midnight and 8 a.m., but they accounted for just over half of the deaths.

If you are a landlord protecting your asset and protecting your tenants should be your primary concern. Our inspection is non-authoritative, so we do not report the results to any government office unless imminent danger exists and corrective actions are mandatory.
