Do you need an electrical insurance inspection?

In most cases, any building that is being insured will require an electrical inspection to be completed before an insurance company will grant a policy. This is due to a recent increase in the number of fires caused by electrical problems, as well as recent changes in electrical standards. In the event that you do not receive an electrical inspection for your building, you can expect to pay 3-5 times more for insurance.

When getting an electrical inspection for a commercial or strata building, it is not only important to hire an electrician with extensive experience to ensure that the work will be completed quickly and safely but also to hire an electrician who can complete the work without disrupting the building’s tenants.

Who can perform an electrical insurance inspection?

It is important to note that most insurance companies require an electrical inspection to be completed by a bonded electrician with at least $3-5 million insurance with WCB. Any old electrical systems and aluminum or knob-and-tube wiring will also need to be licensed by a company that meets these requirements to be eligible for insurance. Make sure to talk to a professional electrician like the ones from Expert Electric before having any work done to make sure that you can avoid the need for a second inspection.
