What is the NEC?« Back to Questions List

The NEC, also known as the National Electric Code, is a part of the National Fire Codes series published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), which lays out the national standard for safe electrical installations. The NEC was created in order to keep people and property safe from electrical fire hazards. In addition to the NEC, each city has its own electric code. Prior to buying a home, selling a home or beginning any electrical work, you should always get your home inspected to ensure that it meets both the NEC and your city’s safety standards. Homes that do not follow this code risk not being covered under home insurance policies in the case of an accident. Mister Sparky electricians provide code inspections and repairs to ensure that your home meets NEC safety standards.
