Electrical Service Agreements
People always ask us if it’s essential to have regularly scheduled maintenance on their electrical system. At Bickimer Electric, your number one Kansas City electrician, we believe it is one of the most important things to have done if you are a business or home owner.
Why are service agreements Important?
The United States Comsumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) identifies small appliances plugged into inadequate or improper wiring as the largest cause of accidental electrocutions. Thus, it is very important to get to know your electrical system and identify the type of wire used to construct your network. Especially, if your home is old because many wiring practices used even 10 or 15 years ago are now considered dangerous and a fire hazard.
Many panels and breakers installed in the past are now considered obsolete (for example, the Pacific and Pushmatic Panels). As a result, they should be replaced immediately.
Your electricity runs behind the scenes to allow a great variety of modern creature comfors. Electrical type problems do not always make themselves noticeable until they finally fail. Subsequently, leading to unwanted electrical service interruption and repairs.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical problems are the leading cause of property damage in home structure fires across the US. Some insurance companies will not insure your home if you have a specific type of wire or a particular brand of electrical panel.
In conclusion, routinely having a licensed electrician check that your home, office or warehouse system is up-to-date and functioning optimally will ensure you can identify minor problems now so that you can avoid significant repairs later.
