Along with over 30 years of experience in the electrical field, I am a Certified Electrical Inspector and a New York State Certified Building Inspector. As a building inspector, I annually complete the mandated 24 hours of state-sponsored training, and even though New York State does not require an electrical inspector to be certified, I find continuing education very important so by attending training seminars, I am able to stay current on all electrical and building codes.
Being in the electrical field for as long as I have has allowed me to see things people do that really scare me. Like the do-it-yourself homeowners wanting to save money by trying to install new wiring in their home, or the guy who thinks hooking two wires together is all that is needed to make that outlet work or the neighbor who offers to help because he thinks he is a “jack of all trades”. Every year, one of the most common causes of house and building fires is a result of faulty wiring which causes many people to not only lose their own lives but the lives of pets and other loved ones. So remember, by hiring an experienced electrician who is current with all codes and safety issues and having an electrical inspection done will help prevent a fire or other hazards.
Having a proper inspection done is very important as it requires that all state and local codes are being followed and not only ensures that your home wiring is safe but also gives you the peace of mind you and your loved ones deserve. Having an inspection done not only makes sure things are done right the first time, but also saves you time and money as it can also help lower the cost of insurance rates and lower the risk of anyone being hurt or killed as a result of inadequate or improperly installed wiring. So, when you start that new project, whether it is a new home or addition, home renovation, electrical upgrade, pool installation or any other work requiring electrical wiring, by having an electrical inspection done today will help avoid any problems tomorrow.
I am a proud member of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) and the New York State Building Code Officials (NYSBOC).
