Holmes On Homes Podcast - Mike Holmes - Season 1 - Episode 5 - ABCs of Electrical Safety

The ABCs Of Electrical Safety

Electricity is a crucial aspect of any home, without it, our homes simply wouldn’t function. However, we don’t often pay too much attention to it, thinking that if everything is working then our home’s electrical system must be in good shape and operating properly. That is not the case! Just like anything in our home we must take the right steps to make sure our electrical is done right and meets our needs, especially if buying a new property or renovating.

In this podcast episode, Mike Holmes speaks with special guest and long-time friend Frank Cozzolino, Licensed Electrical Contractor as they discuss the basics of electrical safety, who you should hire for your electrical work, and what you need to know to protect yourself and your family from a possible fire hazard. They also talk about what to watch out for when buying a house, especially an old property, and why an electrical inspection is important —you’ll leave this episode with the proper knowledge to own it right and protect it right.
