I will inspect:

  • the service drop/lateral;
  • the meter socket enclosures;
  • the means for disconnecting the service main;
  • and describe the service disconnect amperage rating, if labeled;
  • the panelboards and over-current devices (breakers and fuses);
  • the service grounding and bonding;
  • a representative number of switches, lighting fixtures and receptacles, including receptacles viewed and emed to be AFCI-protected;
  • and test all GFCI receptacles and circuit breakers observed and deemed to be GFCIs;
  • service entrance conductors and conductor insulation;
  • for the general absence of smoke or carbon monoxide detectors; and
  • service entrance cables


Will report on:

  • any unused circuit¬†breaker panel openings that are not filled;
  • the presence of solid conductor aluminum branch circuit wiring, if readily visible;
  • any tested receptacles in which power was not present, the polarity was incorrect, the receptacle was not grounded or secured to the wall, the cover was not in place, the GFCI devices were not properly installed or did not operate properly, and evidence of arcing or excessive heat; and
  • any deficiencies in the integrity of the insulation, drip loop, or separation of conductors at weatherheads and clearances from grade or rooftops, as they may require repair.
