Wiring Installation

One of the main reasons homeowners call in an electrician is for help with situations relating to wiring. A lot of people are intimidated by complicated wiring, and that intimidation isn’t a bad thing. If you don’t know what kind of wire handling, you could be placing yourself in a dangerous situation. Don’t put yourself in a compromising position – just call us when you need help with wiring.

Replacing and Upgrading Wiring

Old wires become a gamble after a certain point in time. They’ve had a long life, and they probably weren’t designed to handle the amount of electronic devices in your home. Regular use and the natural deterioration that comes with age can cause these wires to malfunction, and it’s better to replace them with modern wiring before it’s too late. Whether you’re already experiencing problems or you suspect they’re right around the corner, it’s never a bad idea to improve the wiring in your home.

Removing Knob and Tube Wiring

Knob and tube wiring is seriously dangerous. It’s so dangerous that home insurance companies don’t even want to look at homes that still use it. This wiring isn’t up to code, and is essentially banned. It was used in a time where research hadn’t taught electricians any better. Think of it like asbestos insulation – it was an early idea that really needed a little more thought before it was implemented. You want it out of your home immediately, even if it seems to be working properly. There’s no telling when it won’t work anymore, and what will happen when it gives out.

Aluminum Wiring Services

Aluminum wiring was placed in a lot of old homes, but what the people who purchased these homes may not know is that aluminum wiring was only designed to last about three decades. Aluminum is cheaper than copper, and it’s not nearly as good at conducting electricity. Since aluminum is a poor conductor, it can’t handle heat well. It will sometimes pass this heat off to the surrounding area, which may cause an electrical wire. If you believe you may have aluminum wires, we can inspect your wires and replace them with safer wires that are designed to last longer.

Handling Ungrounded Wires

You can tell whether or not you have ungrounded wiring by looking at your outlets. If they only have two slots, they aren’t grounded. The whole purpose of a ground is to make the outlet safer. Unused electricity travels through the neutral ground, rather than to the surrounding area. You’re more likely to get zapped touching these outlets, and some of them may even destroy the appliances you plug in.

Upgrading ungrounded wires may cost a little upfront, but it has the potential to save you lots in the long run.

Arc Fault Breakers

Some arc fault breakers can be a little sensitive. They’re there to protect you, but they can occasionally be overprotective. The smallest bit of loose electricity can cause an outage by tripping the breaker.

Sometimes, these breakers aren’t as sensitive as you think. They may be detecting a problem you aren’t yet aware of. Ignoring your arc fault breaker may be a mistake. Have an electrician take a look at it and make sure it isn’t a sign of something more serious.

Correcting Larger Wiring Issues

A switch or an outlet no longer works. Lights flicker, and sometimes, your TV seems to turn itself off for a second. It’s probably a simple problem in your wiring, and we’ll be able to figure out exactly where it’s located. You might need new wires or have damaged old wires that need to be replaced. You might also need a few new outlets. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep everything working the way it’s supposed to.

Repairing Wiring

Wire repairs are usually simple, but they can seem complicated and intimidating to someone with no electrical experience. If you need a wire repaired, we can get the job done quickly, safely, and easily. If you aren’t comfortable touching it, you don’t have to. We know how to avoid dangerous electric shocks, so you won’t have to guess what may be risky and what’s safe.
