Electrical Code Updates
Electrical technology for homes and commercial properties has evolved tremendously over the last several decades. As new technology appears, existing electrical codes across the country have needed to change to account for these evolutions. If you own an older home and have noticed electrical problems recently, you may not only need electrical repairs, but your home might be out of code as well.
Nipper Electric is a team of fully licensed, highly experienced, and expertly trained electricians who stay consistently updated on the latest electrical code changes in Virginia Beach and at the federal level as well. If you have concerns about an older property being out of code, we can help.
What’s the Point of Electrical Codes?
Every local authority throughout the United States upholds different electrical codes, and there are some electrical codes that exist at the federal level and apply to all structures throughout the country. The point of these codes is simple: to avoid electrical fires, injuries, deaths, and property damage by limiting the ways electrical systems may be configured.
When all electrical contractors abide by the same standards, this sets an overarching precedent and allows electrical engineers, product developers, and other parties to make safer, more informed decisions about electrical technology. Electrical codes create uniformity, which makes it much easier for electrical contractors to ensure safety in residential and commercial electrical systems.
Penalties for Being Out of Code
It’s essential for property owners to ensure their electrical systems follow applicable electrical codes. Failure to do so could not only lead to expensive fines, but also additional costs to renovate the system that is out of code. If you recently purchased an older residential or commercial property, it’s essential to have a trustworthy and experienced electrical contractor inspect the property’s electrical structure to ensure compliance.
