How Often Should Your Electrical System Be Inspected?
It is generally recommended to have your home's electrical system inspected by a professional electrician every three to five years.

These inspections also ensure compliance with updated electrical codes and regulations. By addressing any issues early on, homeowners can maintain the safety and efficiency of their electrical system, preventing costly repairs and minimizing the risk of electrical hazards or power outages.
