Why to Hire an Electrical Contractor
We depend on electrical energy more than ever today throughout our daily lives. There are more gadgets in our home and at work that we use for various things on a continual basis. Some of these things help us work while others entertain us. In addition, electricity still is a large part of our heating and air conditioning units so that we can live and work in a comfortable temperature year round. The electrical lines run throughout structures in an intricate pattern of wires and connections and an electrical contractor from Santa Rosa Electricians knows the correct way to install and maintain these electrical lines and connections.
Codes and Permits
Local codes govern how electrical lines are installed in structures. This is to ensure the property owner’s safety as well as others who use the structure on a regular basis. Our licensed professionals know these codes and whether or not permits are needed to carry out the work that the structure needs. We can help you with this process.
Home Theater System Installation
Home theater systems have become all the rage for homeowners today. However, these systems take some complicated wiring at times to enable proper operation of them. You have many different components including a state-of-the-art television. If things are not hooked into the electrical supply correctly, they will not work right. In addition, they could be damaged beyond repair because of a malfunction in the electrical line. Our residential electricians know how to hook all these components into the electrical supply correctly so there are no problems. You, as the homeowner, will be able to enjoy your home theater systems without being concerned of any issues happening from faulty connections.
As a side note, we’ve seen dozens of instances throughout the past few years where homeowners improperly hooked up their own entertainment system only to call us months later after a power surge overloaded the electrical components of their hardware. As we assessed the damage and realized that the damage was caused by improper electrical connections. We use specialized tools to assess the flow of electricity through various wires and can best tailor your home entertainment center to the levels of power being output. These are tools that the common homeowner does not have, and working without them can put your system at risk.
Commercial Buildings Have Special Needs
Commercial buildings typically use more electricity than homes. They have office machinery and/or manufacturing equipment that needs to run all day and sometimes all night long. A commercial electrician understands the urgency of repairing any electrical issues that arise in these buildings. He also understands the importance of installing any new wiring according to the needs of the commercial establishment.
Electric Vehicles Call for EV Charging Stations
There is an increased need for EV charging stations both at home and at businesses because of more people driving electric vehicles. These charging stations take special installation procedures so they can adequately charge these vehicles. A Santa Rosa electrical contractor will install these stations and guarantee that they will work properly.
When Problems Happen
No matter how well the wiring is performed in a house or business problems are bound to happen occasionally. Certain ones could be minor irritations, but there are some that could cause huge issues. The latter are typically emergency situations and must be addressed immediately. Some of the situations in which you may call for a professional electrician’s help include:
– The electrical wiring has a short. This could cause a fire if left un-repaired.
– A whole building or house power outage. This could point to major problems with the breaker box or the wiring connected to it. Only an professional will know all the places to look to find the problem.
– Any cable, panel or outlet that shows damage. An professional knows how to discharge any present charge to repair the problem safely.
– Wiring or conductors become exposed. This could lead to further damage or problems.
– You need an electrical panel or subpanel repaired, removed or installed. This should never be attempted by anyone who is not a qualified electrical professional. In fact, we offer a free electrical panel inspection for those with older homes. It’s imperative that you receive your electrical panel inspection if you have an older home, as they can catch fire without notice!
– At times, your electric appliances will quit working because of problems with their wiring. A professional can quickly rectify the issue.
– Electrical transformers blow from time to time. This can cause a major blackout for anyone running from the electricity from that transformer.
