It is extremely important that you inspector thoroughly inspect the homes electrical system.  I inspect the service entrance conductors, service and grounding equipment, main overcurrent device, main panel and all sub panels.  I inspect the connected devices and fixtures (ceiling fans, light fixtures, switches, receptacles, etc).  I inspect all outlets for correct polarity, grounding, and GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interruption) when necessary.  I inspect all GFCI’s for correct operation.  I inspect the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  I’ll notify you of the location of your main and sub panels.
