Putting your Family’s Safety First - When to get a Electrical Inspection for your Home

Keeping your electrical system running smoothly is not just about avoiding outages, it’s crucial for your family’s safety. Getting a comprehensive house electrical inspection from a qualified electrician is one way to spot and fix electrical risks before they become accidents.

A comprehensive inspection goes beyond the “big” things like your switchboard, it involves a check of each and every powerpoint, light fitting, appliance, switch, smoke alarm and more. The idea is to reveal any current problems as well as potential issues, ensuring your home is a safe place both now and in the future.

There’s particular times when a house electrical inspection is highly recommended, including:

  • Before Moving In – Whether it be a new home or rental, getting a house electrical inspection is essential. The previous owner or landlord may have done an inspection, but it’s best to get an independent look and there’s always the possibility they’ve overlooked “small” issues. We’ll make sure to provide a thorough inspection and report, complete with recommendations for repairs, so you can be sure you’re moving your family into a safe dwelling.
  • When You Live in an Older Home – As they are particularly prone to electrical hazards, it’s recommended to get older homes inspected regularly. As GlobileNet exclusively services the Hills District, we’ve developed an expertise in servicing older homes. We pay special attention to your wiring, looking for signs of early deterioration or corrosion, and to your switchboard. Unlike less experienced electricians we know when something can be repaired, and when it really should be replaced.
  • After a Severe Weather Event – Your home is especially at risk after storms or other severe weather events. Even if you’re not experiencing electrical issues, it’s important to get your system inspected as soon as possible following an intense weather event.

In this situation, GlobileNet will pay special attention to water ingress and look for signs of short circuits as these are common issues after storms. From there we will recommend repairs, replacements and upgrades both to fix current damage and to safeguard your house against future weather events. These upgrades may include surge protectors, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) or other safety devices.

When an Electrician is More than Just an Electrician: Getting the Legal Steps Right in your Transaction

Buying or selling a home can be overwhelming and confusing. Amongst all the factors that go into the value of a house, a sound electrical system is often overlooked. Yet a faulty electrical system can cause problems for buyers and sellers for years to come. Such issues can be avoided by getting a comprehensive house electrical inspection before a sale is finalised.

If You’re Selling Your Home it’s best to have a complete electrical inspection of your home done before you make any moves to engage a real estate agent or list your property. This ensures that if any issues pop up, you’ll have time to fix them before you have interested buyers come and go. Providing prospective buyers with a certified report demonstrating your home is safe and ready to move into can go a long way in building trust and therefore a smoother transaction.

GlobileNet is fully qualified to perform electrical inspections of all types of residences and provide compliance certificates. Our report will include our contact information, licence number and qualifications, and can be relied upon in legal transactions.

If You’re Buying a Home you’ll want to get your own inspections done before exchanging contracts. Even if the seller has conducted an inspection and produces a report, it’s best practice to get an independent review.

What if I’ve already signed? In NSW there’s a 5 day cooling-off period after the exchange of contracts and the deposit. If you haven’t already, this is a good time to get an inspection done. If you’ve missed this, there’s still often another 6-8 weeks before settlement when you can do final inspections. Note that it is very difficult after settlement to hold a seller liable for electrical issues you uncover.

Our team brings a keen eye for detail to every inspection. We’ll alert you to any electrical issues that require attention urgently or before the purchase is completed. We’ll also provide you with a report that details time that will likely require attention in the future so that you can take them into account in making your decision to purchase a home. We can even communicate directly with your and/or the seller’s real estate agent, giving you more headspace for all the other tasks involved in moving.

How to Read a House Electrical Inspection Report

When you first pick up a house electrical inspection report, you’ll see a series of headings, followed by components, checks and comments. You’ll also see technical terms like “polarity” or “Residual Current Device”. Don’t worry – GlobileNet can explain these in layman’s terms, and help you understand the report, what parts to pay attention to, and what you may need to do in response.

The most important things to look for are:

  • Items that did not pass the “check” – Electrical components that are not compliant will need your attention, possibly immediately. GlobileNet will always provide solutions to the issues we spot and do our best to get your home’s electrical system fully compliant ASAP.
  • Items that have comments – Some items will have passed the check, but will have comments about the level of wear or likelihood of needing replacement in the future. GlobileNet cares not just about your immediate safety, but about protecting your family for the long-term. We’ll be sure to leave comments where we’ve noticed signs of wear even if they aren’t urgent.
  • Recommendations – Required or recommended replacements and upgrades to make sure your system runs safely and efficiently. GlobileNet is committed to helping you become increasingly energy efficient and future-proof your home.

If you’re getting ready for a transaction, we’ll help you understand whether the house is ultimately ready for sale or, if not, what needs to be done. As your local electrician, we don’t believe our job is done when the report is complete. Our job is done when your home’s electrical system is in good condition and your family (or the buyer’s family) is safe and sound.
