Do You Need An Electrical Hazard Detection Test?

Did you know that tens of thousands of home electrical fires occur every year...

These fires account for hundreds of deaths, thousands of injuries and millions of dollars in property damages. Thankfully this can be avoided with an Electrical Hazard Detection (EHD) test! When people think of electrical dangers, they envision outlets sparking, or lights flickering, but most homeowner's don't realize that there could be serious electrical hazards lurking BEHIND the walls of their home. With the EHD test, you can finally monitor your home's electrical system thoroughly. 
Unlike most electrical contractors, F.H. Furr's electricians are CurrentSAFE® certified experts in electrical hazard detection, highly trained in all aspects of electrical safety and testing. When you make the decision to invest in your home safety with an EHD test, our electricians thoroughly inspect, test, safety check, and evaluate all of the electrical components of your home. We don't guess or speculate when it comes to accurately diagnosing issues and recommending cost effective solutions. The result of this comprehensive evaluation is an understanding that your electrical system is safe for you and your family, while delivering clean power to your home. 
When you get an EHD test in your home, you'll have peace of mind and assurance of your family's safety from electrical hazards. The test will:
  • Greatly reduce the risk of an electrical fire in your home
  • Identify dangerous shock hazards
  • Assure clean, dependable power to home electronic equipment
Plus, our non-destructive testing procedure requires no cutting, drilling or removal of wall materials and is normally completed in less than a day!
