Arc-fault circuit breakers shut off the power before an electrical fire can start. Every year more then 2,000 people die and or are injured from home electrical fires. While smoke detectors and fire extinguishers provide life saving help, it’s only after a fire starts. AFCI Breakers help prevent a fire.

Today’s home is full of electronics in things most people don’t even think about. Computer boards can be found, not only in computers, but also in phones, TVs, appliances, and even some water heaters. Don’t forget your heating and cooling system. Electrical surges are unwanted excesses of energy and we can help you avoid them.

Thermal Imaging allows us to find and correct costly electrical repairs before they happen. It shows us a panel is about to fail before it fails and heads off home electrical fires, loose connections and overloaded breakers and wires. It lets us see things a regular electrical check wouldn’t show. It allows us to see inside the breaker thermally and evaluate the contacts inside. Thermal imaging is the most cost effect method of checking this taking almost a quarter of the time it normally would to complete.

The Grounding system of your home is the most important part of the electrical safety system. Some older homes were grounded with only a piece of iron pipe which can erode away leaving you and your family in danger. Let us evaluate your grounding system and make a recommendation to you today. With our grounding service, we install two new ground rods that are specifically made for today’s harsh environments and a new copper conductor. These provide long life and protection.
