When it comes to electrical work in your home, safety is the number one priority. That’s why many electrical jobs, including EV chargers, whole home surge protectors, and certain changes to your electrical panel, require permits and inspections from your local municipality. Not all electrical companies get their work permitted and inspected, but at AstroWatt Electric, we always follow your municipality’s guidelines about permits and inspections.

So, why are permits and inspections important, and how do we make them as easy as possible for you?

Why Do Electrical Jobs Need Permits and Inspections?

  1. Safety
    Electrical work, when not done correctly, can pose significant risks to the safety of you and your family. Permits and inspections ensure that the work is completed in the safest way possible for you and your home.
  2. Code Compliance
    Building codes and electrical codes are in place to establish a minimum level of safety and functionality. When electrical work is performed without a permit, there’s no guarantee that it adheres to these codes. Non-compliant work can lead to expensive repairs and legal issues down the line.
  3. Insurance Requirements
    Many insurance companies require proof of permits and inspections for electrical work before they will provide coverage. Without the proper documentation, your insurance policy may not cover damages caused by electrical issues.
  4. Resale Value
    If you plan to sell your home or business, having permits and inspection records for previous electrical work can increase the property’s resale value. Prospective buyers are more likely to trust the safety and quality of a property with a documented electrical history.
  5. Legal Consequences
    Performing electrical work without the required permits and inspections can result in fines and legal consequences. Your local municipality may require you to have the work undone or face penalties.
