Electrical Systems

This is a broad area and very controversial to many inspectors and contractors. What you should know is:

  • Is my home properly grounded?
  • What is the age of the electrical wiring in my home? Remember that there is no Grandfathering Clause with electrical systems.
  • Is my breaker panel overloaded?
  • Is there knob and tube wiring?
  • Do I have aluminum branch wiring?
  • Are my counter and bathroom outlets G.F.C.I.s? (Ground Fault Current Interrupter testing is included with every home inspection).
  • Is there water or signs of rust in the electrical panel?
  • Is there any loose or exposed wiring?

These are just some of the basic things to ask yourself and look at when evaluating your home or prospective home.
