Annual Checklist for Electrical Preventive Maintenance

When you meet with your doctor for your yearly checkup it’s usually a routine appointment, but because they’re experts they might notice an uptick in your blood pressure or an abnormal spot on your skin that they want to investigate further. The same applies with electrical preventive maintenance, where an electrician conducts a routine inspection to ensure your home’s electrical systems are running smoothly and there are no underlying issues.

While some may argue, “I don’t need electrical preventive maintenance because I can call an electrician if I notice a problem,” oftentimes the concern goes unnoticed until it’s a severe issue that requires a costly repair. By scheduling annual electrical maintenance with a reputable residential electrician, you will: 

  1. Uncover electrical concerns early on
  2. Determine if there are ways you could be saving on your electric bills
  3. Keep your electrical systems functioning at a higher quality and for longer periods of time

What Should Be Included In Your Electrical Preventive Maintenance Checklist?

Electrical preventive maintenance should be a top-to-bottom review of your home’s electrical systems. Be sure that your electrician reviews the following: 


  • Breaker panels
  • Circuit breakers
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • GFCIs (ground-fault circuit interrupters)
  • Grounding and overcurrent protection
  • Metering
  • Motion lighting

  • Motion sensors and timers
  • Recessed lighting
  • Security lighting
  • Smoke detectors
  • Switches
  • Track lighting
