According to the NEC, there are a number of violations commonly found in households across Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, and Clearwater. Common electrical code violations include:

  • Overloaded circuits. Circuits are designed to handle a very precise range of electrical current at any given time. Overloading these by adding too many appliances or electrical systems can lead to serious property damage.
  • Damaged wiring. Cracked, chipped, or otherwise compromised wiring can be responsible for considerable appliance damage, and can even result in electrical shock or fire.
  • Outdated wiring. Wiring is installed with the intention of lasting for quite a long time, but it’s not installed with the intention of lasting forever. Using old wiring can lead to a fire as well as personal risks.
  • Poor electrical connections. Weak connections can cause power flickering, overloading and short-circuiting, and can result in appliance damage. Connections should be tightened and replaced if needed.
  • Incorrect outlet usage. Outlets like GFCIs are ideal for use in areas where water might be present, such as in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and utility spaces. Failure to use the correct outlet can cause a wide number of problems and dangers.
  • Mixed-era technology. New lighting or new appliances should never be wired to or connected to older or outdated technology. The incompatibility can cause a lot of damage and risks overloading the circuit.
  • Faulty breaker panels. Breaker panels are both the operator and safeguard for your home’s electricity. If the panel is too small, too old, or is working incorrectly it can cause problems on every level of your home.
  • Safety violations. The NEC details a wide number of small but potentially hazardous issues including outlets installed at an incorrect height, incorrect wire size, and many others. Our experts will perform an in-depth assessment of your home to locate and remedy them all.

Electrical Code Inspection FAQs

Making sure your home is up to current building codes is critical to protecting your family’s safety. Electrical inspections are part of that. Here are some common questions Hoffman Electrical & A/C often hears about electrical inspections from our customers in Sarasota and St. Petersburg.

What is involved in an electrical inspection?

An electrical inspection gives a licensed electrician the chance to check your home’s electrical system. This includes inspection and testing of wires, systems, and electrical components, including major appliances. The electrician will check to make sure that these meet all local safety standards, present no fire hazards, and are up to current building codes.

What does an electrical inspection cost?

An electoral inspection costs a few hundred dollars for most homes. The overall cost will depend on the size of the property and how many electrical components it has. Commercial electrical inspections will have a higher cost. Most property owners feel that this small cost is worthwhile for the large amount of protection that an electrical inspection provides.

What is rough in electrical inspection?

Rough-in is a part of a construction project wherein the plumbing, mechanical, and electrical lines are brought in before the final connections are made and the walls are completed. A rough in electrical inspection inspects how the electrical lines are laid out to ensure that the final connections will be effective and safe. This includes inspection of the:

  • Electrical boxes
  • Cables
  • Conduit
  • Wires

The electrician will ensure that these electrical components are installed safely so that the walls can be closed without an issue.

When should you inspect electrical equipment?

There are several times when a homeowner should make an electrical inspection appointment. These times include:

  • At the purchase of a new homeowner
  • After a home reaches 40 years of age
  • When adding a new appliance to the home
  • After any major renovation or building project

Do I need an electrical code inspection?

While code corrections aren’t exactly an annual service per se, the majority of homes we service do in fact need some code corrections. This is especially true for older homes that aren’t quite up to date with the current Code requirements, but even modern homes often could use some corrections here and there to address aging wiring, faulty panels, and weak or broken electrical connections. It’s wise to seek code corrections any time you:

  • Move into a new home
  • Haven’t had an inspection in 5-10 years
  • Are living in an older home
  • Are planning on a renovation or home addition
