What Is the National Electric Code?
Did you know there is a certain national standard that all electrical systems in the U.S. must meet? This is called the National Electric Code (NEC), and it is meant to protect your household, building tenants, and occupants from electrical accidents that could be caused by poor electrical installations and deteriorating electrical equipment. It’s important to hire a company – like Solaris Electric & Plumbing – that adheres to the NEC and ensures all work is completed accurately, safely, and is up to code.

What To Expect During Electrical Inspections
When you schedule an appointment with a professional to inspect your electrical system at your home or building, you can expect him or her to perform the following tasks:
- Check your electrical system for flaws.
- Determine if any repairs are needed and recommend possible solutions.
- Perform an assessment of new homes and properties and ensure their electrical systems are installed correctly.
- Perform code updates on older homes and buildings. This can be performed to ensure the current occupants’ safety, and before a property goes on the market.
- Do a safety check of any electrical work that was previously performed to protect your family from injury and liability.
