Electrical System Inspections in Lexington & Louisville

At Dauenhauer, your safety and the well-being of your property are our top priorities. That’s why we offer comprehensive electrical inspections to identify and address any potential electrical hazards in your residential or commercial property. 

Our certified electricians are highly trained and experienced to ensure that your electrical system receives a thorough inspection, functions properly, and adheres to all electrical codes. 

What Our Electrical Inspections Cover

We offer thorough residential and commercial electrical inspection services in Lexington, Louisville, and Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Our electrical inspection services cover the following:

  • Visual Inspection: We’ll examine all visible electrical components, such as wiring, outlets, switches, panels, and fixtures. We’ll look for any signs of damage, wear and tear, burning, or improper installation. 
  • Outlet Testing: We’ll test all visible or accessible outlets with a micrometer or probe. We pay special attention to GFCI outlets and test them to ensure that they are functioning properly and provide protection against electrical shock. We’ll look for improper connections and electrical surges, which our micrometer can detect. 
  • Electrical Panel Inspections: As the heart of your electrical system, your electrical panel channels all your electricity into the circuits spread throughout your home or building. We’ll check for loose connections, overloaded circuits, faulty circuit breakers, and other potential fire hazards. A thorough inspection of the electrical panel is crucial to identify any issues that could lead to overheating, arcing, or a fire. 
  • Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detector Testing: We’ll perform a full smoke and carbon monoxide detector inspection to ensure each detector is functioning properly. These detectors are an important component in your home safety and provide an early warning of potential fire and CO hazards. We’ll also ensure they have the correct placement to provide the best warning system. 

If you are concerned about any part of your electrical system, let us know, and we will take extra care to test that component. Our electricians aren’t present for every circumstance your electrical system goes through. If we know what set of conditions causes problems, we can take steps to identify any electrical problems with special circumstances.

Electrical Installation Condition Report

It’s important for our customers, landlords, supervisors, and building owners that the electrical inspection is reported in a way that is well documented and captures detailed information on the electrical wear and tear on a system, such as faulty wiring, damaged equipment, and other electrical code violations.

That’s why we offer an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) performed by a qualified electrician to document our electrical testing results. Sometimes called the landlord safety test or homebuyer electrical test, the EICR should be conducted every ten years for home residents and every five years for rental properties (or as soon as there is a change of tenancy). 

These condition reports find and report electrical safety and electrical code issues that need to be addressed. 

Electrical System Maintenance Services

Dauenhauer does more than just report problems; we can be ready to fix electrical problems on the spot. We can schedule both an electrical inspection and an electrical system maintenance service on the same day to ensure that all the electrical maintenance problems we find are fixed.
