If you purchased your home recently you probably had a home inspection completed during escrow. If you have been in your home for a number of years, you may want to consider getting an updated home inspection.

      electrical issues? (tripping of amps in DB, flickering of lights, loose sockets, etc)

    4. What is the condition of the DB box? Are there any signs of melting, burns, etc.
    5. Check all switches and sockets, check for defects and damages and estimate their

      age.
