When you walk in the door of your home at night, you expect to be relatively safe and comfortable. It is a very scary thing to think about your home holding hidden dangers that put you and your family’s life in jeopardy. Nobody likes to think about what it would be like to escape a burning house or to lose all of your possessions in a home fire. Some fires cannot be prevented. However, an electrical fire can be prevented with a little awareness. Your Miami electrician, like those at Elcon Electric, can help you uncover any secrets that may be hiding in your electrical system and putting the safety of your home and family at risk.

An electrical inspection is that peek behind the walls that you need for your own satisfaction.

Any problems or recommendations the inspection reveals will allow you to make a decision about what work you want to proceed with.
GFCI outlets are the standard in kitchen and bath areas for new home construction. The outlets are designed to trip the breaker should the circuit be interrupted. If there is a problem with the cord or if water splashes on the appliance, the breaker will trip, eliminating the risk of electrocution.
