Electrical Safety Assessment

Why Conduct an Electrical Safety Assessment?

 

Wilcox Electric offers a value-priced Electrical Safety Assessment to identify, if present, the most common electrical hazards. Here's why it is important to you...

 

Safety and Increased Efficiency of the Electrical System

 

Electrical systems can last for decades with preventative maintenance. The Whole House Electrical Assessment is our signature preventive maintenance service. The Ben Franklin adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” certainly applies within the context of electrical safety and comes to mind here. Wilcox electricians are skilled in identifying signs of corrosion and heat – precursors to more serious problems.

 

To assess the condition of your home's electrical system, we will perform the following:

 

• Check the electrical service panel and wiring

• Tighten screws and lugs on circuit breakers to ensure their proper functioning

• Apply Noalox on branch circuits’ aluminum wires

• Check for double-tapped breakers to eliminate overloading a circuit breaker

• Ensure that the panel’s main breaker size does not exceed the size of the SEC cable entering the property

• Check all outlets with a tester looking for loose connections, open grounds, neutral wires, and proper polarity

• Test/inspect GFCI outlets and breakers

• Survey for proper surge protection

• Check smoke detectors and make recommendations, if necessary, for full compliance with local electrical codes

We discovered an electrical issue in the morning when our siding contractor opened up the wall on the back of our house -- a nail had been hammered directly through an electrical wire probably decades ago, and the wire was just barely hanging on. Wilcox was able to get an electrician out to us within hours to do the work before the siding was put back up on our house. It was a challenging spot to work on and meet code, but they did an excellent job, coming up with a good solution that they expertly and relatively quickly implemented. They are very professional and, importantly, very personable too. We highly recommend Wilcox! -JD
