Electrical Inspections & Audits for Homes & Businesses

Residential & Commercial Electrical Inspection: What Is It?

Residential and commercial electrical inspections provide a thorough examination of the property's entire electrical system. The inspection is what provides insight on if the wires, systems, and components are all up to legal standards, as per the Safety Standards Act which is the ruling electrical regulation that all electricians must operate under when handling residential or commercial electrical structures.

Once your inspection is complete, EVSOL Energy will provide you with a detailed and prioritized checklist of the results – including the immediate action needed and improvements/upgrade potential within your current electrical structure.

When Do You Need a Residential or Commercial Electrical Inspection?

There are specific times in the wiring process when inspections must be performed. Before any circuit can be energized, it must have written approval from a Safety Officer. The purpose is to reduce the risk of electrical shock by waiting until all circuits have been completed and covers installed.

All electrical work must undergo inspection before it is concealed or connected and at least once every 180 days during the installation process. Most installations require two inspections – a rough-wiring inspection and all work completed inspection. EVSOL Energy follows all Technical Safety BC standards when working with residential and commercial wiring.
