Electrical Repairs Parker TX

Have a Home Electrical Inspection for Your Protection

There are four conditions that a home electrical inspection is recommended. If the home is forty years old and older, an appliance was added, major renovation of the home, and before the purchase of a home. This recommended comes from, the Electrical Safety Foundation. A certified electrician is the one that performs the inspection. No matter what the reason, this will provide you with peace of mind. A local electrician can be hired in Lavon, or any area you might reside.

The certified electrician will perform several tasks during the inspection. The entire electrical system of the home is inspected and tested. The electrician ensures that all appliances, systems, electrical wires, and components are up to the safety code. They will supply you with written details of the inspection. Issues that need attention immediately, improvements recommended, and possible upgrades will be listed. Most times, you can employ electrician services from the company doing the inspection if wanted. It is not mandatory though, you may hire a different company to perform any work needed.

Service panels for the electric in the home, is in every house. They usually are in the basement, garage, or outside of the home. This is where circuit breakers or fuses are contained. The inspector will examine the components and panel for wear and tear, age, and smoky or dark residue. If the panel is worn or rusty it should be replaced. If the service panel does not have circuit breaker switches, but the round fuses instead, it needs to be replaced, as well. Have a master electrician do the work for you, to ensure it is done correctly.

In most cases, if the home has the out-dated round fuses, the wiring is also old. There is a possibility there is knob and tube wiring, if the home was built prior to 1950. Aluminum wire may be in homes that were built between 1965-1973. Both types of wires pose a hazard. Homeowners should have this wiring replaced. If planning on buying this home, take this into consideration.

Ground fault circuit interceptors (GFCI), must be installed in kitchens and bathrooms, or any area that is wet. There needs to be several inches between any water, and light switches. Any outlets that are outdoors, must have GFCI. It is advised for the homeowner to test these periodically. During the electrical inspection, these should be tested, as well.

If the home is occupied or currently for sale, they should be visually inspected. The appliance cords, interior outlets, light switches and ground fault circuit interceptors, needs to be tested routinely. If the outlet is loose, replace or tighten it. Check that the cords are close fitting. Check the outlets to ensure they stay cool when you touch them. Visually check to see if the outlet has any black smoke. Call a local electrician, if any humming or switching noises come from around the lighting or outlets.

This home electrical inspection, may safe a life.

We had Barney's Electric come out to install an outdoor ceiling fan on the patio. We really appreciated the no cost estimate. He quoted a fair price and when he came to install the fan, he worked very quickly and efficiently even though he had lost his assistant during the week and it was a little warm that morning. He was very nice. I would call him again for any additional work we might need.

Barney's Electric took out my old fluorescent lighting fixtures and installed recessed lighting with dimmer switches. He installed under cabinet lighting with switches, and installed USB ports in my kitchen outlets. The lighting transformed my kitchen. It looks so much better! They were nice, polite, and cleaned up after themselves.

My husband and I decided to completely gut and remodel our kitchen. In doing so, most of our existing kitchen electrical would need to be completely redone. After numerous, frustrating interviews with other electricians, I contacted Barney. I am very glad I did. He came out, assessed the project and gave us a clear idea of what to expect. Barney showed up promptly when he was scheduled and got right to work. When issues arose, he was very clear in communicating with me what the situation was and what options we had to address them correctly. He was very good about staying in contact with me throughout the project and even stopped by on occasions to see how other work was progressing so that he and I could coordinate next steps and completion of his work.

Our kitchen looks and operates amazing! He did a great job with all our lighting requests and made sure that we had all the appropriate electrical connections for our high-end appliances and to ensure all work was completed per code for inspection. On short notice he was very responsive and came out to make a last minute adjustment that was necessary to ensure proper installation of our range.

Barney has unbelievable character and is a great guy to work with. It is evident he takes a lot of pride in his work and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
