What Is the National Electric Code?
When you schedule code compliance repairs, you might hear your electrician mention the National Electric Code. What is this, and why does it matter?
This is what technicians use to determine if your home has any electrical code violations. These codes are meant to protect your household, building tenants, and occupants from electrical accidents. Failure to adhere to these codes can put your property at risk for electrical issues due to poor electrical installations. This can lead to fires and other issues.
To ensure your home is compliant with all codes, have your electrical system inspected by an experienced electrician. Call our electrical contractors at Allsource Electrical Technologies.

How To Ensure Your Smoke Detectors Pass Inspection
One of the most common electrical code violations is the incorrect installation of smoke detectors. These seem like simple devices that you think you can install on your own, but they should be installed by electricians to ensure they are adhering to the codes.
To ensure your smoke alarms are up to code, make sure you follow these criteria:
- Devices are installed outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home, including the basement.
- Alarms should be installed in the living room, den, family room, and near the stairway to the upper level of the home.
- Devices in the basement should be installed on the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs leading to the next level.
- Alarms should be located at least 3 meters from a cooking appliance to avoid false alerts when cooking.
- Units should be installed high on walls.
