Why would I need a new electrical circuit?

Give us a call today to get an estimate on pulling a new circuit to evenly divide the loads.

I have too many power strips behind my entertainment center and want to reduce the clutter. How can you help me?

We can offer you several options. We can install a quad outlet or even a hardwired surge-protected power strip in the wall. These two options will eliminate those pesky power strips lying on the floor and get everything up in the air behind the entertainment system for a more uniform and professional look. We can also install a large media box in the wall. This will allow us to hide all your power wires, data wires, sound wires, power strips, and even your router in the wall, out of sight.

Do you install ceiling fans?

Yes, we install ceiling fans. Even where there isn't wiring in place, we can give you an estimate to get the wiring and the proper box installed so we can install your newly purchased fan.

Can you change the existing switch to a dimmer switch?

Most switches can be easily swapped for a dimmer switch. We just need to be sure the light on said switch is in fact a dimmable light.

Why does a breaker in my panel feel hot to touch?

It's typically a sign of the breaker getting ready to fail or being overloaded beyond its 80% capacity for a period longer than 3 hours.

How can I tell when an electrical outlet is not safe or needs to be replaced?

If your plugged-in cords fall out and aren't held in place securely or if you notice any discoloration of the outlet such as yellowing or browning. These could be signs of an overworked outlet that may need to be changed out or at least inspected to prevent any possible fire hazards that these loose connections can cause.
