We can design new complete systems, repair and upgrade existing systems, or fix any electrical need – large or small. All of our electricians are licensed and trained to be current with NEC regulations.

Here is a short list of Residential Electrical services we provide:

  • Backup and Safety Systems: including generator service, whole home surge protection, battery backups, thermal imaging, fire detection and alarm systems, and El Niño protections
  • Outlets and Switches: such as panel upgrades, car charging installations, wall outlets, GFCI outlets, and power saving switches
  • Lighting: including signs and displays, ceiling fans, chandeliers, outside lighting, and LED lighting

Generator Installations

A backup energy system is a smart and responsible way to be prepared for emergencies. Natural disasters and even common mishaps can cause power outages in your home or community creating inconvenience and potentially putting your family’s safety at risk.

Important things to bear in mind:

  • Generators need to be inspected twice a year.
  • Generators can be set to automatically turn on in power outages
  • Generators can be combined with battery systems and solar energy systems for full protection and efficiency.
  • Connections to a home are regulated by NEC standards.

Surge Protectors

Invest in your home and make sure that all of your critical and expensive electronics are backed up with surge protectors. If you use extension cords without surge protection you are putting your equipment at risk. Even worse, you may be putting your home in danger by creating a significant fire hazard. Extension cords and power strips are not enough to protect you from surges and other hazards.

Many people know enough to add surge protectors for their computers and other sensitive equipment, but this rarely enough to protect your equipment and your home. For example, major appliances like refrigerator have fragile electronics that can be easily destroyed during a surge. A professionally installed Whole Home Surge Protection will stop surges at the source. As a result, they can protect a wide range of electronics in your home. Depending on the rating and size of your whole home protection system you may still want to individually protect specific pieces of equipment.

El Niño & Your Home

With El Niño coming so does more than the usual wind and water. Wind can be damage property even cause power blackouts. Knocked over telephone poles and down power lines can leave your home without power and often internet service until it is repaired.

Prepare yourself for disasters and protect your home and equipment:

  • Surge protection keeps your electronics safe from overloading. Without surge protection, your appliances can be ruined and will void any warranties that came with them.
  • Battery backups can keep your home instantly powered in case of an emergency. Often after a blackout, your equipment is already turned off, reset, and the information is lost. Home battery backups can protect your essential loads so you won’t even notice the power is out.
  • Generators can add another source of power that works when your electrical utility does not. In combination with a battery backup, these two systems can be synced to work automatically. Battery backups and generators can be very effective when they are running complementary with each other. Generators are common and inexpensive to install. But generators alone will not throttle power as needed. This is where putting in a battery to complement the generator is a perfect solution.

Thermal Imaging Inspections

Deep scan your home for real issues that are not visible to the naked eye. Your home is one of your biggest investments. Make sure that it is protected from the ground up.

It is important to have a licensed technician come to your home and perform a safety evaluation. Whether you are buying a new home, selling the one you already own, or just want to make sure your home is safe, thermal imaging can provide you with powerful insights about your home electrical system. Our technicians are trained to use special equipment and know how to analyze the results much like a doctor looking at x-rays. We will spot issues that can save you huge headaches and will give smart recommendations on how to fix problems and save money.

Install the Newest Outlets in Your Home

Your existing wall outlets should be inspected regularly. Sometimes it is easy to spot problems. Any signs of burning, smoke, or cracks should be an immediate sign to call a professional electrician. You can also upgrade to new outlets to allow for easy access and USB charging!

Another obvious sign is that your outlet isn’t working. This could be for a number of reasons. Make sure to have your wall outlets professionally examined. Your electrical panel could be at capacity and may need further examination.

We Can Help You Install GFCI Outlets.

Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets are required for certain areas of the home where short circuits are likely. Often found next to sinks, bathtubs, or other places with water – or outdoors where weather can be an issue.

Factors like wind and water can play a large role in the safety of your home and proper function of electrical outlets. NEC Code requires a certain amount of GFCI’s depending on the size and layout of your home. Make sure to have a trained and licensed electrician properly assess your home for all NEC requirements. If you want to test your GFCI we can do that for you as well.

Wall Switch Not Working? We Can Help!

A broken wall switch can be a simple replacement or a more complicated issue with the electrical panel. You can also save energy by installing automatic switches. Special sensors turn on the light when you enter and turn off after you leave. Save electricity and money by never forgetting to turn off your switch again.

Chandelier Installation

A chandelier isn’t just a fancy fixture, it is a branched and often ornate lighting fixture that is suspended from the ceiling, which can add both elegance and value to your home.

We can help you buy a custom chandelier that will impress any visitor to your home. We can help you choose from many different sizes and styles and install your chandelier so that compliments the space in your home.

While the big box stores and home stores carry standard-sized lights, buying custom is an opportunity to invest in beautiful one-of-a-kind hardware that you will enjoy and increase your home’s beauty and value.

Outdoor Lighting Installation

Outdoor lighting is a great way to protect against intruders or just to beautifully light up your home. We can install all the lighting ourselves as well as the necessary wiring. We can design it for you or match your own designs.

Shine some light on your yard or garden at night with our custom installed outside lighting. The lights are convenient and will add safety and beauty to your backyard. Lights can be installed on the side of your home using standard home electrical circuits. Or, install a low voltage system for the perfect
combination of safety, ambiance, flexibility, and low maintenance. Many options are available to design your outdoor lighting to match your home or building’s decor.

Your home is your castle and outdoor lighting allows you to enjoy it inside and out. Whether you want to light up an entrance for friends or visitors or you just want to be able to enjoy your deck or porch after the sun goes down, we have the perfect solution for you!

Upgrade Your Lighting

Seek out options for beautiful and energy efficient lighting by choosing LED lighting! LED lighting stands for light-emitting diode (LED), which is assembled into a light bulb that can be used with modern lighting fixtures. In most applications, many of these diodes are grouped together to form a single lamp. LED lights are more efficient and longer-lived than older incandescent and fluorescent lamps. Some LED diodes can emit more than 100 lumens per watt, which means that they can easily brighten up your home and keep money in your wallet.

Some quick info about LED Lighting:

  • Lasts longer
  • Bigger range in brightness, hue, and capacity
  • Saves energy
  • Customizable to any location

Just like incandescent lamps and unlike many fluorescent light bulbs, LED lights turn on immediately without the need for warm-up time. And they come in a variety of color temperatures from bright day-light to warmer or more yellow colors. Many LED lights are made to be directly compatible with your existing lighting, so there’s often no need to change out your old light fixtures unless you want to.
