Thousands of homes catch fire every year due to damaged or faulty electrical wiring, causing many to lose everything – including their lives in some instances.

Light It Up Electric also conducts electrical home inspections which take place before purchasing a new home. This inspection determines whether the house is electrically sound and that the individual components of the electrical system are in proper working order. This process includes determining which type of wire you have running through your home, testing your outlets to ensure that they have power and are not faulty and to check the functionality of your GFCI outlets which are typically placed in wet areas such as the bathroom. It is important to have a licensed electrician versus a general contractor conduct these types of inspections. Important items could go unnoticed by someone who is not an expert in the field and inspectors are not liable for their omissions.
Another component to New Jersey electrical safety inspections is the inspection of the electrical service panel. Often these panels reveal signs of moisture damage, improper wiring, are worn or sometimes even burned wiring. These signs of wear and tear can potentially lead to a fatal situation if not taken care of in a timely fashion.
In addition to problems with the panel, we sometimes find aluminum wiring running through the service panel, especially in homes built in the late sixties and early seventies (panel brands include but are not limited to Bryant, Challenger, Federal Pacific Electric, Sylvania and Zinsco). In recent years there has been an increased concern over the safety of aluminum wiring. After numerous home fires, the once common practice of using aluminum wire has been replaced with the use of copper wiring. Aluminum wiring expands when it warms up and contracts when it's cool. The aluminum beings to loose its tightness after this happening repeatedly. In addition, aluminum also presents problems because of its tendency to oxidize when it comes into contact with other metals. Aluminum wires will eventually get very hot and melt your appliances. Many homeowners have no idea that they have aluminum wiring. Call Light It Up Electric today and let us make sure that your home is up to the current NEC standards. Many people are finding that insurers will not provide or renew insurance coverage on such properties unless the wiring is inspected and repaired. The work must then be inspected by a professional licensed electrician and a copy of the Certificate of Inspection, which Light It Up Electric will provide, is then provided to your insurer. In some instances, the insurer requires replacement of the aluminum wiring with new copper wiring. Many New Jersey homes, in particular, have a mixture of both aluminum and copper wiring.
