Electricity is one of the most valuable assets in our homes, and one of the most dangerous when it has a problem. This is why you should not hesitate in calling us if you have an issue with your electrical system. Our qualified technicians are experienced professionals, who will ensure that your electrical repairs are done right to ensure the safety of your home and your family.
If your home is several decades old, it was wired for a time when electricity did not play as big a part of life as it does today. We have increased the amount of electronic devices in our homes in ways that home builders did not anticipate. If your lights dim when something starts up, especially your air conditioner, you do not have enough power coming in for everything. You need more circuits in the home, and you usually need a service up-grade.
Even if your home is not older, you might need more circuits in areas. If your lights dim when you start using something else in the room, that is a sign of an over-loaded circuit. If you are blowing breakers on a regular basis, that is another sign that you need more power, at least in places. Kitchens are notorious for this problem, because of the amount of power used by microwaves, coffee pots, and electric cooking equipment. That counter-top grill is great. But when you put it on the same circuit as the microwave, you can expect problems when they are both on.
Another common problem is when something feels hot, or if you see sparks. Heat is a natural byproduct of electricity, but too much is bad. If your outlet or light switch has these issues, please don’t wait on this. House fires are a lot more expensive than an electrical repair.
