Reasons to Have the Wiring in Your Home Inspected This Fall

Whether you just moved into a new home or you’ve been in your home for 20 years, it is essential to go into the colder months in Medford, OR, knowing that the wiring in your home is in optimal shape.  Having an inspection gives you a chance to see if your home is safe.

  • If you have outlets that don’t work, an inspection and repair services can get your electrical outlets working correctly. You will worry less when you know that all your outlets work and are safe to provide electricity.  If you have many outlets that don’t work, inspection and repairs by a professional are essential to make sure that your home isn’t at risk of fire or another wiring malfunction.
  • Old wiring can be a problem that grows over time. An old breaker box and electrical system lead to expensive repairs as the year’s pass.  Having your wiring and breaker box updated this fall will get the electrical system in your home into prime shape and ready for the work it needs to do reliably.
  • Electrical fires are a significant concern in an older house. An inspection provides you with the peace of mind that your home is in excellent condition as far as the electrical system goes.  If there is a repair needed, then you will have all the answers about your wiring and why you should get repair services.
  • If you are buying or selling a home this fall, it is vital to have the information from an inspection so that you know the right price point for the home. If the electrical in a home needs updating, this is sometimes a major expense that needs attention before purchasing or selling a home.  Without updating, the value is much lower when new wiring is necessary.   If the house is old and you are a buyer, consider getting an inspection outside of the sellers to compare costs and get an additional opinion.
  • If you think that the wiring in your home is a hazard or smell wires burning, you could have an emergency. Don’t hesitate to call emergency services for an electrical fire or other hazards and then have repair services done.
