Home Inspection and Electrical Code Violations


Home inspections help by reporting the condition of the home as it relates to building codes. If the home has conditions that are not up to code then these items should be identified for the buyers protection. In some cases a system or equipment may also be found that will need to be repaired or replaced as well. The following may be helpful when deciding what to do if a home inspection discovers electrical problems.

Electrical Tip

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
