Regular electrical system inspections are vital to keep your home and office safe. They help to prevent any accidental injuries or deaths, and it saves money by avoiding costly repairs and replacements in the future.
It might be a scare that recently happened, or it’s just time to get everything tested, but every now and then, routine maintenance and safety inspections are required for the electrical systems around us.

Dealing with these faults early on will both save risking the safety of the inhabitants and the expensive repair costs of an electrical fault later on.
An energy audit inspects a building or home’s energy usage to help identify the factors that drive up energy consumption. Information gathered through the inspection is used as a basis for presented recommendations to cut down energy costs.
In any home there are so many appliances and equipment that consume energy without our knowledge on how these appliances operate and how they consume and waste energy. The energy wastage by these appliances lead to higher energy bills and more CO2 emissions, which causes global warming. In many other cases, these appliances are not energy efficient and needs modifications, upgrade or even replacement.
Smart Power Solutions is able to conduct an energy audit to the home to assess the efficiency of these appliances and educate the home owner on how to use them efficiently and cut the energy wastage. Also, we recommend to the home owners what type of modifications or replacement they need to implement to increase the efficiency of these appliances.
The cheapest way to reduce energy expenses is to develop good energy consumption habits. Check if:
computers and other appliances are kept running when not in use
lights can be turned off in the daytime to take advantage of natural light
thermostat is set up or down by only 8 degrees based on the outside temperature below is a summary of our residential energy audit scope for home owners.
Review energy bills to identify any anomalies.
Inspect all the appliances that consume energy such as Air Conditioner, Refrigerator and kitchen appliances, lighting bulbs, hot water appliances…etc.
We sit with the home owners to explain to them how these appliances operate and how they can waste energy. Sometimes we waste energy by using these appliances in a wrong way.
After that, we explain to the home owners what modification/replacement they need to implement to increase the appliances efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
Good house design also reduces power consumption and helps lower energy expenses. You want to ensure you have good insulation on walls, floors, and ceilings to ensure that the heat or cold isn’t wasted. Inspect gaps around doors, windows, and vents including openings between the interior and the exterior of the building to see if they are draft-proof. Best of all, it is recommended that solar panels be installed as the main source of energy to save more long term.
