Call for Electrical Repair: Avoid These Common Code Violations


Electrical Repair and Service Greenville SC

Safety is Paramount

Electrical repair is necessary not only because it keeps your home safe, but also because it keeps your electricity well within local and national codes. Electrical codes aren't anything to take lightly, although that hasn't stopped homeowners from thinking they are above the law of the land. Many homeowners get too confident and take the DIY electrical plunge thinking it can't be that difficult to install wiring into outlets and breaker boxes. Although they may accomplish their goal of powering their home, that great feeling of accomplishment is often short-lived and brings along several consequences, such as unsafe wiring, reduce property resale value, and failure to pass electrical safety inspections. 

With such a risk, you'll need to be sure you don't cross the National Electrical Code (NEC). The NEC is a book of electrical installation and renovation safety standards established by the National Fire Protection Agency. While not mandated by regional laws in the U.S., the NEC has been adopted by over 98 percent of all U.S. areas. Every three years the NFPA publishes a large volume of electrical safety codes covering both indoor and outdoor electrical practices and standards. As a responsible homeowner, it's at least worth a look so you can ensure your home's electricity remains safe and efficient as possible. There is no doubt you need to be proactive with your home's electrical system, but it's important you know how to take the safest measures possible.
