Why Are Electrical Safety Inspections Important?

While your home’s electrical system offers convenience for you and your family, it can pose a safety threat if something is not installed or connected correctly. Untreated issues with your home’s electrical system can quickly create a fire hazard. This is why having an electrical safety inspection in your Hudson Valley home is important.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), from 2016 to 2020, more than a quarter of all reported fires occurred in homes, leading to three-quarters of civilian fire deaths and nearly the same percentage of injuries during that period. U.S. fire departments responded to around 343,100 home structure fires each year, resulting in an average of 2,610 civilian deaths, 11,090 injuries, and $7.6 billion in property damage annually.

Cooking, heating equipment, electrical issues, intentional fires, and smoking materials have proven to be the main causes of home fires. While the number of reported home fires and deaths has decreased since 1980, the injury and death rates per 1,000 reported home fires remained consistent, showing that prevention efforts have mainly reduced the occurrence of fires rather than post-fire harm.

How to Reduce the Risk of Fire in Your Home

Fires in our homes can happen at any time of the day. To protect yourself and your family from this disaster, there are electrical safety measures that you legally must take, as well as others that you will benefit from.

  • Smoke Detectors: Smoke Detectors need to be placed on each floor of your home, especially outside or inside each bedroom. These devices will warn you of early signs of fire, allowing you and your family to escape.
  • Electrical Inspection: An electrical inspection benefits homeowners by identifying potential hazards in the electrical system, reducing the risk of fires and electrical failures.
  • Surge Protectors: Surge protectors are valuable for homeowners, as they safeguard electronic devices and appliances from power surges. They prevent damage, prolong the lifespan of your equipment, and save you money on replacement costs, making them essential for protecting your valuable investments.

During the electrical safety inspection, our electricians will examine your electrical systems for compliance with current codes. If any issues or areas not up to code are identified, we will provide you with a range of options and transparent pricing for necessary code corrections.
