Benefits of Periodic Electrical Checkups

The benefits of having periodic electrical check ups include saving you money, ensuring your system is up to code, and more. By investing in preventative measures, you protect your home from any electrical issues that may have begun without your notice. 

We will discuss these benefits in further detail below: 

Saves You Money

Periodic checkups will save you money in the long run as they catch any issues before they evolve into costly damages. Minor issues may not be too expensive to fix, but major damage caused by electrical fires can be very high in cost. 

Ensures Your Electrical System Is Up to Code 

National, state, and local governments can have electrical building codes that must be followed; periodic checkups will ensure that your system is up to code. These codes are put in place to protect homeowners and properties, so following them is best for your safety. 

Keeps You and Your Appliances Safe 

By checking on your system, you will keep you and your appliances safe from damage. Issues that arise with your electrical systems can directly affect your appliances, maybe even breaking them completely. 

In the interest of saving expensive appliances, you should adequately monitor the electrical system for any issues before they spiral into something bigger. 

More Efficiency in Your Electrical System 

Periodic checkups keep your electrical system running efficiently and at peak performance. JPS electricians can provide tips and quick fixes for any minor electrical issues, which will keep your system running as best as it can. 

Efficiency will also directly affect your cost savings as your energy bills will be lower as a result. 

Avoid and Prevent Malfunctions 

Having an experienced electrician periodically checking on your system will avoid and prevent malfunctions in your system. This helps avoid unnecessary power outages in your home or other electrical issues. In severe cases, this will help against dangerous shock hazards or fire. 

There are many moving parts to an electrical system, from circuit breakers to outlets, and having a trained professional check on them will help keep all the parts running smoothly.  

Understand Your Electrical System Better

When you have an electrician over annually or bi-annually for checkups, you are providing more instances to learn about your electrical system on a deeper level. With the guidance of our electricians, you can learn more about your system than you would otherwise. 

This knowledge will serve you in the future if any problems arise before your scheduled checkup. Through your deeper understanding of your system, you will be able to more accurately surmise what the issue is and how to either fix it yourself or who to call for help. 


By investing in a preventive maintenance plan, you can protect your home from damage and your wallet from costly damages. You can choose an annual or bi-annual plan to best suit your needs and enjoy the benefits that come from protecting your home’s electrical system. 

Our electrician experts are ready and available to help you care for your electrical system. We have the team, tools, and experience to make sure your system is up to standard. By purchasing a plan, you can enjoy all of the benefits of having your electrical system monitored periodically.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Why should I have my electrical system tested? 

Testing your electrical system will help keep you and your home safe. It will also protect your appliances and devices from power surges and faults that could damage them past repair. 

How frequently should electrical systems be updated? 

This will depend on the quality of your electrical system; generally, electrical panels need replacing every 25 to 40 years. The wiring will need replacing at various times, depending on the material of the wires. For a clearer answer, contact an electrician and ask for an inspection. 

Does one bad outlet affect the other outlets? 

A bad outlet can sometimes make circuit breakers trip, which would result in other outlets not working as well. But this is not always the case; sometimes you may just have one faulty outlet. For questions on a faulty outlet, call your electrician for further guidance or an inspection.
