One of the greatest risks in anyone’s home is the risk of electrical shock or fire. It’s important to take some precautions to avoid suffering any electrical emergencies. For one, never touch an overhead wire, and always assume that it is live. Even if a wire has fallen to the ground, it can still cause significant injury unless it is dealt with by a professional. Second, never use electrical equipment when it is wet or has been submerged. If there’s one rule to remember, it is that electricity and water never mix. Any appliances that have been soaked need to be inspected by our expert team of electricians to determine whether they can be used safely.
Also, never attempt to repair your own electrical system. There are countless risks to you and your home including electric shock, fire, and in some instances explosions. It’s always safer and more effective to hire trained and certified electricians for any repairs or inspections that need to be done.

Working on electrical problems requires caution, skill, and training. Our technicians work quickly and safely to identify, isolate, and fix the trouble. Troubleshooting starts by observing the problem. Has an appliance or a piece of equipment stopped working? Is current intermittent, or is circuitry overheating?
Once the problem is defined, our electrician can test circuitry to narrow down the problem’s location. Our troubleshooters research and analyze possible causes as in most cases there are usually multiple possible causes for an electric issue. We handle common household problems, typical equipment failures, and also hard-to-diagnose situations.

You should always investigate any electrical problem that may be in your home. While small issues start out as an annoyance, they can quickly escalate into an electrical emergency in no time. It’s important to troubleshoot electrical problems in old houses. Wiring is more likely to be damaged or inadequate. Older homes lack GFCIs (ground fault circuit interrupters). The wiring is likely to be made of materials that are no longer standard. Our technicians will perform the necessary services to make sure that your home is to standards.

One of the most common indications of electrical issues is trouble with the circuit breakers. Circuit breakers trip to prevent overloading, which can cause fires. If a circuit breaker goes off repeatedly, check with us. Never work on the electrical panel yourself as there is always current to the panel. Flickering lights indicates a faulty connection. The problem may be at the bulb, in the fixture, or at a loose connection.
Electric shocks or lights that brighten and dim may indicate faulty grounding, which is a serious problem. Fixtures and circuits that get hot are overloaded. A loose plug that falls out of the outlet is dangerous, because it can lead to arcing. Outlets that don’t work, light bulbs that won’t come out of ceiling fixtures, and stripped wires are all causes for concern. So are appliances that are running at an unusually low power level and light bulbs that explode. If any of these issues sound familiar to you, it may be time to call our expert technicians today!

Many homeowners will spend a considerable amount of time, effort, and money, decorating their home perfectly. They may select new furnishings, upgrade the flooring, paint the walls and more. While all of these steps are important to create a desirable ambiance in the space, the fact is that home lighting can have a considerable impact on the overall ambiance of every room in the home. More than that, lighting can also affect the functional use of the space. With this in mind, it is important to take a closer look at how improving your home’s lighting may benefit you.
Homeowners rely heavily on the lighting in their homes. From aesthetics to convenience, lighting is integral to the comfort of your home. Lighting from chandeliers and sconces can add a decorative touch to the space because of the look of the fixtures themselves. In addition, background lighting can make a home feel warm and cozy while spotlights can focus lighting on specific areas of the home. For example, a spotlight may be used to illuminate a built-in desk or even a work of art hanging on the wall. There are many different ways that home lighting can be used for functional and aesthetic purposes alike, and professional home lighting services can be used to help homeowners maximize the benefits of lighting.
In order to enjoy the full benefits of lighting in a space, it is imperative that homeowners understand the different types of set-ups for home lighting. Some options, such as lamps, are easy to use. These may be used for aesthetic and functional purposes alike, and they are commonly placed on desks, end tables and nightstands. Many light fixtures are installed into the walls as well.
For example, recessed lighting is often used to illuminate large areas. Dining areas and breakfast rooms may have a hanging light or small chandelier placed over the center of the room. Bathrooms often use vanity lighting, and there may be recessed lighting or sconces in these rooms for additional ambiance. In bedrooms, it is common for lighting fixtures to be installed with ceiling fans. Track lighting is common in living rooms, game rooms, or other similar rooms where focused light may be needed.
Some homeowners may attempt to improve their home’s lighting on their own, but professional services are often beneficial. This is because installing lighting fixtures requires working with electrical wiring, which can be dangerous. In addition, the exact placement of lights must be precise, or the look of the room could be affected.
For example, a light fixture that is hung off-center in a dining room may have a negative impact on the space. Some professional lighting services provide the homeowner with customized advice regarding the placement of lights, the number of light fixtures to install and other factors. They can also help a homeowner to determine if the available power to that area of the home is sufficient or if an electrical upgrade will need to be made.
Home lighting is an important part of any home’s décor, and it is also important for the home from a functional standpoint. Our expert technicians are not only knowledgeable in the electrical aspects of home lighting, but they are also trained in the aesthetic part.

With various modern styles of fans as well as different lighting sources, they can become a more energy efficient cooling and lighting feature for your home. Aside from their convenience, they can be complex in installing. Before attempting to perform these installation or repair services yourself call our expert technicians today! At 110/220V Electric Co. we can provide you with professional installation and repair services for the ceiling fans in your home.
Ceiling fans can be beneficial in both the cold and hot weather. During warm weather, ceiling fans circulate and cool the air, lowering temperatures by as much as 8 degrees. Installing a ceiling fan has the potential to save you as much as 30 – 40% on your electricity bill, which is better for your wallet and the environment.
In the cold weather, the ceiling fans rotation may be reversed to a clockwise direction in order to circulate warm air from your heating system. Warm air tends to rise and gather near the ceiling, but a ceiling fan will push it back down toward the floor, making the room feel warmer. Using ceiling fans in winter can save you up to 10% on your electricity bill.
In an aesthetic sense, ceiling fans are also beneficial. Because they come in so many different styles, they can add to your home’s decor. As opposed to fans positioned on the floor, ceiling fans save space, and they’re safer for children. In addition, a fan mounted in the kitchen or dining room can help prevent unwanted pests from flying in.
One of the most common issues with ceiling fans is wobbling, which may be caused by an inadequate electrical box. Ceiling fans are meant be installed in an electrical box specially designed for them rather than a box for a ceiling light fixture. If they’re installed in the wrong type of box, they will have inadequate support and structural damage can occur. This issue can cause fans to come loose and fall. Wobbling can also be due to loose screws and bolts on the blades or down-rod.
Ceiling fans that fail to operate completely may be wired incorrectly or possibly connected to a bad switch. A faulty capacitor can cause a ceiling fan to stop working or run slowly. If a burning smell is coming from your ceiling fan, it likely needs a new capacitor.
The most important part of having a ceiling fan in your home is knowing when it needs service. If you suspect any of these issues in your home, call our experts. Our technicians will provide your home with professional repair services to restore the functionality of your ceiling fan in no time!

Things like cabinetry and appliances almost always grab the glory when it comes to kitchen remodeling yet lighting can also play a major role in the custom appearance of your kitchen. From providing you with the light to cook, wash dishes, and basically see what your doing, to lighting your cabinets, kitchen lights are integral. At 110/220V Electric Co. we are in the business of revitalizing your kitchen through the remodeling process.
The remodeling of the lighting in your kitchen can have limitless benefits. When you choose our expert technicians to perform these services they can add up to be even more important. The benefits of kitchen lighting remodels include:
Nearly any kitchen can accommodate a wide variety of lights. The simple reason for this is that the room has multiple lighting needs. Certainly, most of the kitchen’s lighting needs can be accommodated by standard ceiling and wall fixtures. Along with their practical side, these fixtures allow nearly limitless decorative opportunities.
Recessed ceiling lights are popular for illuminating work areas. Track lighting is being increasingly used as an alternative, though. It provides greater flexibility as needs change. Fluorescent tube lights are great for under cabinets. LED lights are even better for these uses. They can hug the underside of a cabinet more closely than even a fluorescent tube while providing the same diffused light.
Sometimes, a homeowner might try to satisfy the need for a kitchen lighting remodel by adding their own fixtures here and there. There are three things wrong with this approach. First, they may not be able to place the lighting where it will do the most good. Second, they’ll have a bunch of cords taking over all the available electrical outlets. Third, they’re very limited in the types of lights they can use.

Lighting options for the garage have expanded quite a bit in recent years. Depending on the age of your home, most garages still manage to get by on one dim, centrally located ceiling fixture. It’s probably not a great illuminating source when you need to clean out your car, work on a home project, or sort through your belongings. It also may not provide you with the safety and security your home requires. Quality garage lighting needs to not only work for general purposes but should also be task specific and enhance your security.
If your garage lighting isn’t providing all these features, then you may wish to consider upgrading the lighting in your garage with professional power installation services. At 110/220V Electric Co. our team of highly qualified experts can assess and address your garage lighting and power installation needs while working within your budget. We provide cost estimates and fast, reliable service.
In addition to improving general lighting, custom garage lighting also improves safety conditions by creating more focused light in work and storage areas, especially when you’re working with power tools. Having the appropriate task lighting enhances visibility to see what you are doing more easily and results in less eye strain and the chance that you could make a mistake. Security lighting outside of your garage is another custom lighting feature not to overlook. Security lights will give you peace of mind and can be installed and set to function using automatic timers or motion sensors.
Based on the size of your garage and lighting needs, we will suggest appropriate types of lighting sources, fixtures, and outlets for those spaces. Plans will be made with specifications for wiring, fixtures, and outlets. We will also inspect your electrical wiring system, including your junction box. Some rewiring or upgrading of older electrical systems may be necessary.
Task lighting often requires being on a separate circuit from general lighting ones. Older fixtures will then be removed and your new lighting system will be installed. For task lighting areas, manual control switches will be installed to operate the lights independently from wall switches. The time to complete installation will vary according to the size and complexity of the project.
The importance of appropriate garage lighting and power installation cannot be stressed. It will allow you to use your garage more frequently for a variety of purposes while maintaining your safety and security. Our technicians are dedicated to providing you with expert service in determining the proper lighting and power installation needs for your garage. Call our experts today and let us know how we can improve your garage lighting needs efficiently and affordably.
LED lights can be a huge benefit to any household because of their long-life, desirable color, and energy saving abilities. However, as LED lights are fairly bright, in many fixtures they can draw focus to the ceiling of the household when it should be elsewhere; because of this, recessed lighting can be an ideal choice for anyone who wants to create an aesthetically pleasing and beautiful atmosphere in their home.

Like other light fixtures, there are a variety of problems that can occur which may warrant repair or replacement. One of the more common issues comes from the recessed lighting socket itself. Over time it can become damaged or loose result in poor functionality.
Wiring is an additional problem that can occur in various areas within a recessed lighting fixture; while some problems can be harmless, a wiring issue needs to be repaired quickly for safety purposes.

Outdoor home security lights are one of the easiest and most efficient ways to add security to your household. These cost effective security solutions are designed to detect even the slightest amount of motion outside of your home flooding the outside of your home with light during the night when an unwanted visitor arrives. At 110/220V Electric Co. our technicians are here to provide you with installation services as well as regular maintenance and repairs for your motion sensor security lighting. Our expert services and knowledge of electrical wiring and lighting simply can not be beat.
Motion sensor security lighting functions by using an active sensor in order to detect changes in the area around it. This motion sensing feature has a passive system that effectively detects infrared energy. This means that the sensor is able to determine the average human body temperature of around 93 degrees Fahrenheit. Once someone comes close enough to these sensors the lights will turn on as a result. This in turn allows for homeowners to be aware that something is in the area.
Motion sensor lights are a good way to add security to your home. They can alert you when someone approaches your home and in some instances can be a deterent to potential burglars. Motion sensor lights can be installed in various areas including:
A security light should generally go in areas that allow access to your home. By installing them in these areas you can always rest easy knowing your home will be illuminated in the event of an emergency.
Motion sensor lights are installed by first turning off the electricity and removing any old fixtures that are currently in place. New fixtures are then installed with house supply wires connected to each other. Once installed, the main power can be turned on and the switch can be moved to the test position in order to test out your brand new motion security detector lights. Our technicians will not leave your home until we know the job is done perfectly!
Motion sensor lights are extremely beneficial to homes by adding a sense of security that you did not previously have. When movement is detected outside of your home, the lights are designed to come on, giving unwanted visitors the feeling as if you have spotted them. This helps to lure potential burglars away from your property, as they can easily be spotted in the light. In addition, motion detector lights do not waste as much electricity as light left on the entire night.
We strive to provide customers with excellent, professional services that they can rely on. We work hard to build trusting relationships and excellent reputations that help all of our customers feel as though they are receiving the best services possible.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets are designed to protect against electrical problems that can cause shocks or electrocution, start fires in buildings, and cause damage to appliances. The GFCI outlet monitors the flow of electricity to detect ground fault. If the electricity reaching the circuit has an imbalance between the hot and neutral poles, this indicates there is a ground fault. Our technicians can perform the necessary installations services to equip your home with GFCI outlets.
There are many places that require GFCI outlets as a mandatory safety features. In some rooms it simply makes sense to have one as a result of the amount of use these rooms receive. These areas include:
These areas are the most prone to developing ground faults because they usually have a lot of moisture and dampness. Once a GFCI outlet is installed you can have the peace of mind that comes from having a safe home!
A ground fault occurs when a live electrical wire touches a metal outlet box or a ground wire. This can in turn cause sparks or electrocution. With a GFCI outlet, the electricity will automatically turn off, preventing a serious issue such as fire or health risks.
In the event that the outlet is tripped, it should be ascertained why this happened before turning it back on. The reason may not be evident, but through expert services our experts can determine the reason the outlet turned off and remove the cause, reset or replace the outlet. Anyone touching the circuit when the outlet turns off will experience a small shock, but nothing compared to the life-threatening shock that would be felt if there were no GFCI outlet.
A GFCI outlet will have a test button and a reset button. The outlets should be tested every month to be sure they are working properly. Outlets that are used with power tools such as drills, trimmers and mowers should be tested before each use. To test the outlet, plug a lamp into it and push the test button. The lamp should turn off and the reset button should pop out. To turn the outlet back on, just push the reset button.
Our technicians are highly skilled and trained electrical experts. As homeowners and electricians, we understand the severity of electrical systems. While they provide your whole home with safety and convenience, they can also be a danger. Before we perform any services we will consider your safety and convenience first and do our best to offer excellent customer service.
