When to Call for an Electrical Inspection
Your home's electrical system is a vital component of your comfort and safety. Since all electrical installations deteriorate with use and age, it's recommended that you have a periodic inspection to check the condition of your electrical system. The frequency of inspections will depend on how old your home is and the number of appliances you have. Most electricians in Tampa recommend an inspection every three to five years.
Besides scheduling regular inspections for your home, there are several situations where you should have a licensed electrician inspect your system, including:
- Your circuit breakers trip frequently
- You have problems with fuses blowing
- Your outlets are two-pronged, not three-pronged
- Your lights flicker when an appliance turns on
- Your outlets and switches are not working normally
- Your switches or outlets are warm to the touch
- You are renovating or building on to your home
- You are adding a large appliance, such as an HVAC system
- You are planning to purchase a new home

Preventing Electrical Fires
One of the most frequent causes of home electrical fires is an arc fault. An arc fault can be caused by overheated, stressed, or damaged electrical wiring or devices. To prevent fires that are caused by arc faults, we can install Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) breakers or receptacles. These devices decrease the risk of fire by interrupting the flow of power when an arc fault occurs in the circuit, including within appliances plugged into it. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has estimated that over 50% of electrical fires that occur each year could be have been avoided by using AFCIs.
