Reasons To Call An Electrician

There are many reasons you may need to call an electrician. It may be for electrical rewiring, issues with your HVAC system, or new outlets.

Outlets

So, maybe you need updated electrical outlets. Older houses were mainly wired with two-prong outlets. You cannot use or fit three-prong plugs in two-prong outlets. Your electrical wiring system may not be safe, especially if you’ve added one or more plug-strips to your outlets.  When your use plug strips as well as multi-receptacle add-ons, you will need an electrician to create new outlets so that you are not working your electrical system beyond its capacity. When you use too many add-ons, there may be a compromise of order and safety.

Safety Matters, Safety First

Is your home equipped with GFCIs? If your home does not already have Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) in the kitchen and bathroom areas, you should get an electrician to install them. GFCIs are a required standard today in rooms where there is active plumbing. GFCIs prevent electrocution. This may include areas with a sink or bathtub. To start, an electrician will replace the old with retrofits and install them to comply with codes. Any outlet near a sink, dishwasher, shower, or tub should have reset buttons working properly. Don’t worry, the electrician will test all of this to keep you safe. Then, you won’t be in danger of electrocution.

If your home has not had its electrical system upgraded in 25 years, the electricity is probably inadequate. On top of that, the system most likely needs rewiring. Don’t live in a home with all that hazardous wiring. Just get your wiring issues resolved by a local electrician and stay safe.

HVAC System Not Working

If your A/C is not performing optimally, contact an electrical contractor. They will stop by your home and diagnose your system in a one-hour checkup visit. The electrician will identify and diagnose the issue. Then, he will check the HVAC vents, AC coils, refrigerant, and so much more.
