By having our electricians at ABC inspect and service your electrical system at regular intervals, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Correcting problems before they become a danger to your family
  • Preventing fires, shocks, and electrocution
  • Maximizing the service life of your electrical system
  • Identifying components that should be upgraded or replaced

What Happens During an Electric Inspection 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.

Electrical Maintenance FAQs

Why won’t my GFCI outlets reset?

After several years, GFCI outlets can break mechanically, preventing them from resetting and providing power. It’s important to replace faulty GFCI outlets as soon as possible because they monitor for current faults and protect you from electrocution in wet environments. Call our team at ABC for help replacing or installing GFCI outlets in your Chicago home.

Do I need to bring my home up to modern code requirements?

When doing extensive repairs to your home or remodeling it, many areas require that you bring the electrical system up to modern code requirements in the areas where the work is done. If you are not making any major changes to your home, existing electrical systems can often be repaired as needed, such as replacing an outlet. Still, it is a good idea for your safety to bring your home up to modern standards. Talk to our ABC team for help with code corrections and electrical upgrades.
