1. Before Buying a Property

Purchasing a home or business is a very important time in your life. A mixture of excitement and trepidation, this is one thing you want to get right. Undertaking an electrical inspection can help identify any electrical faults at your dream property. This can also help you to negotiate a lower price as undisclosed problems can end up being expensive to repair in the long run.  When you’re in the market for a new home, it’s essential you organise a pre-purchase electrical inspection to protect your loved ones and new property. Please call Sparc Electrical on 0404 213 806 or email to arrange one before signing the dotted line.

2. Before Leasing a Commercial Property

The commercial property market can be rather quick moving. That’s why it’s necessary to schedule an urgent electrical inspection when you’ve found a new office or commercial property. Sparc Electrical understand that time pressures can make it easier to overlook an inspection, however it’s really not worth the risk. From motor burnout to lighting and air conditioning issues, it certainly pays to give your future business premises a once over.

3. If you live in an Old House

If your home is more than 25 years old, Sparc Electrical highly recommend considering booking in an electrical safety inspection. An electrical inspection should be conducted periodically as long as you live in your home. Additionally, landlords should make it a point to do the same to protect their investment as well as their tenants.

How Often Should Electrical Systems be Inspected?

Home Electrical Inspections:

Residential homes should have an electrical inspection every 5 years to ensure your loved ones are safe. As per above, it’s essential to have a safety check done when buying or selling.

Commercial Electrical Inspections:

Commercial properties such as warehouses, factories and offices have more complicated electrical systems present. These need to be inspected every 2 years at least. Furthermore, when occupancy changes landlords and new tenants should organise an electrical inspection.
