How can I fix a broken outlet?

Your safety is most important to us. We ask that you not attempt to repair a malfunctioning outlet on your own. Even though we all use outlets everyday and feel comfortable around them, it is important to remember that they are still dangerous and should be treated with respect. We can handle any electrical refurbishing you need, and we know all the right precautions to take around a broken outlet. Give us a call to find out more.

Do I have to hire an electrician with a license?

You should always hire a licensed electrician to work on any project. Licensing protects consumers, tenants and property owners from the dangers of faulty electrical work. Shabby work poses a fire risk and leads to energy mismanagement. Without the keen eye of a licensed professional, it’s impossible to know whether the work being performed is up to code. The electrical field is not a place where you can cut corners.

How do I know if my home needs to be rewired?

It is common for older homes to require upgrades to stay compatible with local codes, though government regulation isn’t the only reason to have your wires replaced. There comes a point where it’s the safest option for your home. A perfectly fine system in its day could deteriorate over time due to water and pest damage. We can help with rewiring your home, but before we recommend a project of that scale, we would need to do a full review of your system’s components to make that call.

Can’t I do electrical work myself?

While a DIY ethos is an admirable trait for a homeowner to have, there are some projects you should really leave up to the pros. Your electrical system is one of them. If you’re not careful and don’t know what you’re doing, you run the risk of electrical shock and/or starting a fire. Working with a licensed expert mitigates that risk and leads to much higher quality results.
