Can your electricians work within my home?
Absolutely, and we’ll always be sure to provide very prompt services once you give us a call and let us know what you’re currently going through.
Our residential electricians specialize in supporting homes with any and all necessary repairs, installations, upgrades, and so much more. We can also help you with your home’s electrical panels and wiring, as well as carbon monoxide and smoke alarm installations.
One thing to keep in mind is that we typically require landlord approval before we can provide services to renting residents.
Do I need to purchase my own electrical components for my repair job, or do you provide them?
We’ll always provide everything that’s needed to complete your electrical repairs, so there’s no need to provide any of your own electrical components whatsoever. Our vans are always stocked with all sorts of high-quality electrical components and parts, and there are only some rare, state-of-the-art equipment pieces that may require a special order on our end.
This essentially means that we’ll be able to diagnose and address your electrical issues as quickly as possible, and many of our repair jobs only require one visit.
Why are my electric bills so high?
It’s always a good idea to keep track of your monthly electric bills, because random spikes in your monthly utility costs could be warning signs of more serious issues.
One common cause of high electric bills is water heater issues (particularly for electric water heaters). Appliances can often lead to excessive power usage, and this is typically due to most modern devices rarely shutting down fully. High-energy appliances like dryers and dishwashers can potentially increase electric bills, and this type of utility spike is often connected to aging, inefficient appliances.
It’s important to recognize how many chargeable devices you keep plugged in, and only charging these devices when necessary can cut down on power usage.
Although there are many different reasons why your home’s electric bills may be increasing, you’ll always need professional support to get to the bottom of any abnormal price increases.
What should I do if my outlets are overloading?
Overloaded outlets pose serious hazards, because meltdowns and even fires are potentially possible when too many appliances and/or devices are using one outlet. Your home’s wiring can also be put into jeopardy when outlet overloading is occurring.
One common place for overloaded outlets is behind TVs, as well as behind computers. The best thing you can do in these types of situations is add more outlets into your home, or potentially add more circuits. The good news is that this is relatively easy for our residential electricians.
How can I tell if my circuit breaker is malfunctioning?
The most common warning sign of a malfunctioning circuit breaker is when it consistently trips, and it’s never a good idea to conduct any DIY electrical work in these types of worrisome scenarios.
When a circuit breaker keeps tripping, it likely means that you have some type of faulty wiring or you’re overloading your outlets. There’s also a possibility that the switch itself is experiencing a mechanical issue. But no matter what exactly is causing your circuit breaker malfunctioning, you’re going to need to call our electricians to come by and thoroughly inspect your home’s electrical system.
We’ll always be able to install a new circuit breaker for you, and we’ll also help you install a new breaker panel if it’s needed.
What are the benefits of whole-house surge protection?
Protecting your entire household from power surges is crucial in terms of protecting your property’s electrical equipment (as opposed to each individual piece of equipment that’s protected by distinct surge protectors).
This is particularly important for any home that has a good amount of appliances or electronics, which is essentially every home these days!
Are LED lights better than incandescent lights?
LED lights may cost more than incandescent lights, but they’re far more efficient and will last exponentially longer. LED lights also offer less overall energy output, which leads to less operating costs and a more eco-friendly electrical system.
What exactly does grounding mean?
Grounding refers to a grounded wire providing a safe electrical current from appliances and devices back to your home’s service panel. This is important because it’ll help reduce danger if a short circuit occurs.
What exactly is GFCI?
It’s likely that you’ve seen reset and test buttons in the middle of your home’s electrical outlets, and this technically is GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter).
GFCI outlets are incredibly important because they’ll automatically shut off an outlet’s electrical current when any abnormalities are detected. These outlets are also great when it comes to reducing the risks of electrical shock.
