Are you buying a new home or business? Is your existing electrical system old and out of date? Have your system examined by our team at ABC to ensure you can use it safely and trust it to carry the current loads your equipment requires. We offer electrical inspections and code corrections throughout the Chicago area. Our experts can inspect all your service panels, wiring, outlets, switches, lighting, and more to ensure they meet code, provide sufficient current, and are in good condition.

Why Your Chicago Home Needs Electrical Maintenance
After years of use, corrosion, heat cycling, and overloading can cause electrical terminals to loosen, wires to degrade, and components like outlets or breakers to fail. Regular inspections and maintenance help to catch these problems before they become a major safety issue for your home.

What Happens During an Electric Maintenance Visit?
When you schedule electrical maintenance with our team at ABC, you can expect our qualified electricians to arrive on time and equipped with the latest tools to test your electrical system and identify problems. Our experts will start by inspecting the service, panels, wiring, outlets, switches, and lighting to ensure everything is safe and up to code. Our team will test breakers, switches, and GFCI outlets for problems and make sure the circuits are equipped with the right components for their rated amperage. We can also tighten loose connections, clean corroded terminals, and replace broken breakers, outlets, or switches.
We will also evaluate your electrical service to ensure it meets the demands of your combined electrical loads and recommend necessary upgrades to keep your home or business safe. We offer electrical repairs for any problems we may find and service panel upgrades for older homes with 150-amp service panels or lower.
How Frequently Should You Have Your Home’s Electrical System Inspected?
At ABC, we recommend having your entire electrical system inspected and maintained every three to five years. If your home is over a few decades old, you may want to have your electrical system serviced more often to prolong its life and avoid rewiring for as long as possible. We also recommend a full electrical inspection anytime you buy or sell a home to know what to expect.
