One of the most crucial components of a home is its electrical system, which could pose a safety hazard if it is not properly maintained.
There are many specific deficiencies found during the inspection of an electrical system. Here are some of the most common concerns:
- Connection boxes or splice open, all junction boxes must be properly covered.
- Uninsulated wires outside the junction box. All wiring finishes must be inside the approved junction box.
- Wiring improperly spliced. All finished connections must be made inside the junction box or on the panel. Exception: ceramic hands and solid wiring that have been welded or covered with tape. The joints or joints, which are in the panel, are only allowed as an extension of a wire.
- Connections in Misfiled. We note any defects, such as inverted polarity, open ground pole, etc.
- Wiring hanging or secured incorrectly.
- Lack of devices with GFCI control. Current codes require that all outdoor circuits, bathrooms, kitchens located 6 ‘from the sink, garages and basements are protected by circuit breakers with a ground-fault-proof circuit. Talk to the authorities in your area to find out what your requirements are.
- Extension cable for electricity. This Extension cable should be used only temporarily and should not be used as a permanent power option.
- Insulation of weak, frayed or brittle wiring or other deterioration could cause a hazardous situation.
- Lack of enough takes Corrientes. This is commonly found in older homes and may not be a problem or situation that is required by law.
Some commonly encountered defects:
- Wire wires with single aluminum conductors in 120 volt circuits.
- Broken installations or mechanisms.
- Ceiling fans that are loose or that do not work.
- Circuits with two cables connected in service or distribution panels.
- Temporary wiring or extensions of cable as permanent installation.
- Insulation frayed, deteriorated or melted.
- Circuit breakers for ground fault that do not work.
- Loose poles, loose wire connections / clamps with corrosion or are not properly connected.
- Improper joints or joints.
- Improper electrical supply main box.
- Inadequate external wiring.
- Loose fittings and switches.
- The old electrical wiring with ceramic insulators whose condition is worrying.
- Lights do not work.
- Lids for lost currents.
- Take currents with open spaces.
- Reduced spaces due to overhead cables.
- Fuses and Circuit Breakers or breakers with more than the required capacity.
- Smoke detectors that do not work.
- In the current socket, reverse polarity.
- Inadequate and unsafe electrical cables.
- Earth and neutral not separated in the sub-panel.
- Missing sections or tabs on panel or boxes.
- Bath or refrigerator lights connected to switch circuits for ground fault.
