Whole Home Service Agreement


Our whole home Electric Inspection provides a comprehensive inspection of your interior Electrical System. Focused on detecting potential problems before safety and your convenience are impacted, our inspection will give you peace of mind and resolve electrical issues throughout your home.

What We Do

 Our 17-point electric inspection includes the following:

At your service panel, we will:

  • Check for open breaker slots or knockouts, damaged/loose conduits or wires and determine if there is any expansion ability in the main panel. 
  • Check and tighten wire termination on all wires in panel, including main feeders and branch circuits.
  • Check bus bar for damage, discoloration, or burn marks. 
  • Check main grounding system (two points of ground). 
  • Check wires in panel; any aluminum, too many per breaker, brittle or burnt. 
  • Check breakers amperage and confirm they match wire sizing. 

Throughout the home, we will: 

  • Check accessible electrical outlets using plug tester – check polarity & grounding
  • Remove two outlets to check for wiring method, age, and arcing
  • Confirm GFCIs (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) exists in all code-required locations (garage, unfinished basements, crawlspaces, bathroom, kitchen, etc.)
  • Check GFCIs operation
  • Look for any generally unsafe conditions (unsecured wires, missing cover plates, missing junction boxes).
  • Look for any generally unsafe conditions (unsecured wires, missing cover plates, missing junction boxes). 
  • Check smoke detector operation and change batteries.
  • Check smoke detectors/CO detector locations to meet code (every bedroom, hallway outside of bedrooms, every floor) and change batteries. 
  • Check grounding on major appliances: dryer, range. 
  • Check ceiling fan(s) operation. 
  • Check exhaust fan(s). 
  • We will provide you with a 360° Evaluation, answer your questions and discuss any safety concerns noted. We will also apply safety identification labels to your panel and associated equipment. 

When is an Electrical Inspection Needed? 

  • Upon buying a home. 
  • When a home is older than 40 years. 
  • When adding a major appliance. 
  • Prior to or during a major home renovation.

Benefits of an Electric Inspection

  • Ensuring the safe operation of electrical components in your home. Identify electrocution hazards. This includes reducing the risks of both mild and severe shocks. 
  • Decreased risk of fire: Electrical fires are the most common cause of total home loss in the nation. In fact, each year, around 51,000 house fires originate from electrical systems1. Faulty wiring could also result in major electronic damage during severe weather. We can discover damage early and prevent short circuits and possible fires. 
  • Identify common electrical mistakes made by contractors and previous DIY homeowners. 
  • Recognizing outdated wiring such as aluminum or knob-and-tube. 
  • Identify electrical wiring and components that may have degraded over time. 
  • Spot oversized fuses or breakers and panels that could lead to fire. 
  • Help you save energy and reduce costs. Loose connections cause significant power and inflate your utility bill. Energy efficient lighting upgrades are an easy way to save money

 A comprehensive tune-up consists of 13 efficiency tasks, 2 safety tasks and the air conditioner will be cleaned and waxed. 

  • Inspect thermostat – An improperly calibrated thermostat will call for more or less cooling than desired. The former will cost you money, the latter will cost you comfort. BENEFIT: Saves money on utility costs, increases comfort. 
  • Lubricate the blower motor and inspect the blower wheel – Motor bearings require semiannual lubrication to reduce friction and wear. The blower wheel must be clean to deliver proper airflow. Some motors do not require lubrication but must be cleaned to prevent overheating. BENEFIT: Saves money by extending the life of the blower motor. 
  • Clean and adjust blower components – Proper adjustment and cleanliness of blower and components are necessary for adequate airflow. BENEFIT: Avoids costly service calls, saves money on fuel costs. 
  • Clean condensate drain. Clean if necessary – A clogged condensate drain can cause severe water damage as well as cause high indoor humidity levels. BENEFIT: Saves money on fuel, extends life of system.
  • Inspect evaporator cooling coil (indoor coil) – Grease and dirt build up on this coil reduces system capacity and efficiency. Also, a dirty coil can cause condensate water leakage and damage to the property. BENEFIT: Extends life of system, saves money.
  • Lubricate outside fan – Lubrication of outside fan motor will extend its life, making it less expensive to operate. BENEFIT: Extends life, saves money on fuel. 
  • Check fins on outdoor coil – By checking the fins on your unit our technician can increase the airflow. BENEFIT: Extends life, saves money on fuel.
  • Examine all electrical connections – Loose connections cause improper voltage to various components, causing eventual failure. BENEFIT: Extends life, assures safety. 
  • Check starting capabilities – Insures system will start and operate when needed. BENEFIT: Extends life, saves money on fuel. 
  • Take operating pressure for proper refrigerant charge – Improper refrigerant charge, too much or too little, could damage the compressor and could cause high electric bills through a curtailment of system efficiency. BENEFIT: Saves money on fuel; extends life of system. 
  • Record amperage measurements on motors – Improper amperage can reduce significantly the life of the compressor, evaporator and condenser motor. BENEFIT: Extends life of system. 
  • Inspect all safety controls – Essential for proper protection of system. BENEFIT: Assures safety of unit.
