Installing new appliances?

Make sure your electrical system meets the demands of your new water heater, dryer, or other major appliance. Contact our experts today to book an appointment for circuit and wiring inspections and repairs for your Tarrant & Denton Counties home.

The wiring and circuits in your home are crucial to ensuring comfort and convenience. Poorly installed wiring or incorrectly sized wiring will have difficulty accommodating the electrical devices and appliances that are integral to helping you get through your regular routine. TopTech Electric’s experts are committed to delivering safe and efficient solutions. Our DFW electricians can help with all of your circuit and wiring needs, including system troubleshooting, inspections, and repairs.

Whether you need help with an urgent electrical problem or would like to have your system inspected before installing a new appliance, our experts will ensure you receive the peace of mind you deserve.


Common circuit and wiring problems affecting older homes and buildings include circuit breakers frequently tripping, lights that dim or flicker when large appliances or equipment start to run, and frequent power surges. If you notice recurring electrical issues in your home, don’t hesitate to contact our experts for immediate help. We will take the time to inspect and troubleshoot your system and explain the source of the problem. You can expect to receive options and upfront estimates, allowing you to make an informed decision for your home quickly. 

Electrical problems can range from minor annoyances to significant safety concerns. Here’s why circuits and wiring inspection and repair services are crucial:

  1. Safety First: Faulty wiring can lead to electrical fires, severely threatening your home and family. Regular inspections can detect and prevent potential hazards.
  2. Reliability: Fluctuating power, frequent tripped circuit breakers, and flickering lights can disrupt your daily life. Our services ensure that your electrical system functions smoothly.
  3. Code Compliance: Older homes may not meet current electrical codes. We can keep your wiring current to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.
  4. Energy Efficiency: Outdated wiring can be inefficient, leading to higher electricity bills. Our repairs and upgrades can help you save on energy costs.


Older properties that were built before the 1960s often have their original wiring still in place. These homes may still feature a fuse box, aluminum wiring, or knob-and-tube wiring. It’s not a code violation if your home still has older wiring installed; in fact, if your home has been maintained properly, you can typically continue to use older electrical systems without any trouble. 

Outdated electrical systems are not properly equipped to handle the greater demands of newer and more efficient appliances. If you are planning on replacing outdated appliances with newer equipment, rewiring your home may be necessary. Tankless water heaters, dryers, and other large appliances often require homeowners to have an electrical upgrade completed prior to installation in order to safely accommodate the new equipment.

FAQs on Circuits and Wiring Inspections and Repairs

Inspecting wiring is a crucial task to ensure the safety and functionality of an electrical system. Here’s a comprehensive approach:

  • Visual Inspection: Begin by visually examining the wiring. Look for any signs of wear, damage, or exposed wires. Pay attention to loose connections, frayed insulation, or burn marks.
  • Check for Proper Installation: Ensure that the wiring is properly installed and secured. It should be routed away from potential hazards, such as water sources, sharp objects, or heat-producing appliances.
  • Inspect Junction Boxes: Open junction boxes and inspect the connections inside. Confirm that wire nuts or terminal connectors are properly used and secured. Check for any signs of overheating or loose connections.
  • Use a Voltage Tester: Safely use a voltage tester to check for live wires. Make sure to turn off the power supply to the circuit you’re inspecting before doing this.
  • Check for Grounding: Ensure that all metal boxes, outlets, and switches are properly grounded. Loose or missing grounding connections can pose a safety hazard.
  • Assess Circuit Load: Confirm that the wiring can handle the electrical load it’s connected to. Overloaded circuits can lead to overheating and fire hazards.
  • Test GFCI Outlets: For areas prone to moisture, like kitchens and bathrooms, test Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets to ensure they trip correctly.
  • Inspect Circuit Breakers or Fuses: Examine the circuit breakers or fuses in the electrical panel to ensure they’re appropriately sized for the circuits they protect.
  • Document and Report: Keep detailed records of your inspection, noting any issues or potential hazards. Report any problems to the homeowner and recommend necessary repairs or upgrades.
  • Regular Maintenance: Encourage homeowners to schedule regular professional inspections, as wiring can degrade over time. Periodic inspections can catch issues before they become dangerous.

Remember, electrical inspections should only be performed by qualified electricians to ensure safety and compliance with local electrical codes.

Inspection and testing of a wiring installation is a critical process to assess the safety, compliance, and functionality of electrical systems. It involves a systematic examination of the wiring and associated components, followed by various tests to ensure proper operation. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

  • Visual Inspection: This initial step involves a thorough visual examination of the wiring, switches, outlets, junction boxes, and associated equipment. We check for visible damage, loose connections, proper labeling, and adherence to electrical codes and regulations.
  • Continuity Testing: We use a continuity tester to verify the integrity of conductors, ensuring there are no breaks or open circuits in the wiring.
  • Insulation Resistance Testing: This test measures the resistance of insulation material between conductors to identify any deterioration or breakdown. It helps prevent electrical leakage and short circuits.
  • Polarity Testing: We check the correct wiring polarity to ensure that electrical devices are correctly connected and that they work as intended.
  • Earth Continuity Testing: Ensuring proper grounding is crucial for safety. We test the connection between electrical circuits and earth to verify the integrity of the grounding system.
  • Functional Testing: We assess the functionality of switches, outlets, circuit breakers, and other electrical components to ensure they operate correctly.
  • RCD/GFCI Testing: For areas with potential moisture exposure, we test residual current devices (RCDs) or ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) to confirm that they trip appropriately.
  • Load Testing: This involves applying a load to circuits to assess their capacity and stability under normal operating conditions.
  • Record Keeping: Throughout the inspection and testing process, we maintain detailed records of our findings, including any defects or deficiencies identified during the assessment.
  • Certification: Upon successful completion of inspection and testing, we provide a certificate of compliance or a report outlining the condition of the wiring installation. This documentation is crucial for homeowners, businesses, and regulatory authorities.

Inspection and testing of wiring installations are essential to ensure electrical safety, compliance with regulations, and the reliable operation of electrical systems. These measures help identify and address potential hazards, prevent electrical failures, and provide peace of mind for property owners and occupants. Always rely on qualified electricians to conduct these inspections, as they have the expertise and equipment to ensure thorough and accurate assessments.

The frequency of checking wiring depends on several factors, including the age of the electrical system, the type of property, and local regulations. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Newer Homes: For relatively new residential properties with modern electrical systems, a thorough inspection every ten years is often sufficient, assuming there are no visible issues or changes in usage.
  • Older Homes: Older homes, especially those over 40, should undergo electrical inspections more frequently, typically every 5 years. Aging wiring and components may deteriorate faster, posing safety risks.
  • Commercial Properties: Commercial properties with higher electrical loads and more complex systems should be inspected more frequently, typically every 3 to 5 years.
  • Change in Usage: Any significant change in property usage, such as remodeling, adding new appliances, or converting a space, should prompt an immediate electrical inspection to ensure the system can handle the increased load.
  • Visible Issues: If you notice flickering lights, outlets, or switches that feel warm or other electrical problems, don’t wait for a scheduled inspection; have the wiring checked immediately.
  • Local Regulations: Be aware of local electrical codes and regulations. Some areas may require more frequent inspections.
  • Regular Maintenance: Consider routine maintenance checks, such as annually inspecting GFCI outlets and smoke detectors, to ensure these critical safety devices are functioning correctly.

Safety should be the top priority. If you have any doubts or concerns about your wiring, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and have a qualified electrician inspect it promptly. Regular inspections and maintenance enhance safety and prevent costly electrical issues down the road.

An electrical inspection and audit are co

During a rough-in inspection for electrical wiring, it is generally not necessary to strip the wires. The rough-in inspection typically occurs when the electrical cables are run but before the outlets, switches, and fixtures are installed. The purpose of this inspection is to ensure that the wiring is installed correctly, safely, and in compliance with local electrical codes. Inspectors will want to see that wires are appropriately secured, protected, and routed according to code, but they do not need to see exposed wire ends.

Wires are typically stripped and connected during the final stages of electrical installation when devices like switches and outlets are installed. At this point, the exposed wire ends are connected to the terminals of these devices. However, during the rough-in inspection, the focus is on the layout, routing, and general safety of the wiring, not on the final terminations.

Always check with your local building department or electrical inspector for specific requirements in your area, as regulations can vary.
