    F.A.Q.

    Frequent Questions

    u

    How do I know when it’s time to call an electrician?

    Do you find yourself resetting circuit breakers or changing fuses often?
    Do the lights in your house dim when you turn on your air conditioner?
    Do your outside lights flicker on and off?
    Do you have six electronic devices going into one outlet in back of your electronics center?
    Are you using adapters to plug 3 prong plugs into 2 prong outlets?
    Do you have to run extension cords to plug in electrical devices?

    If you answered YES to any of these you should call us for a solution.

    u

    What is a GFCI outlet?

    A GFCI outlet is an outlet receptacle designed to protect you from electrical shock when moisture is present. If your house was built after 1981, there is a good chance that your kitchen, bathrooms, garage, and outdoor outlets are equipped with GFCI outlets.

    You can identify a GFCI outlet by the “test” and “reset” buttons on the face of the outlet. The “test” button will cause the GFCI outlet to turn off and the “reset” button will reset the GFCI outlet if it has been tripped.

    u

    I have an outlet that isn’t working but it is not a GFCI outlet. What is wrong, can it be reset?

    GFCI outlets can be wired in series. So, there may be a GFCI outlet (usually in a basement, garage, or master bathroom) which was installed to control all of the bathroom and/or exterior outlets in the house. If one of the outlets in a bathroom or on your patio does not work, check other similar outlets for a GFCI. If more than one is out, chances are there is a GFCI which controls the others. You can reset it by pressing the “reset” button. When you press the button you should hear a click and power will be restored. If it does not work, there could be a problem in the wiring of the circuit which could be dangerous. Call a licensed electrician to evaluate and troubleshoot the problem.
    u

    What is a “short” or a “short circuit”?

    A short circuit happens when the wire carrying the electrical current comes into physical contact with either the grounded conductor or the equipment ground wire. A short circuit that occurs in your home will result in heat and sparks if unaddressed. Thankfully, the circuit breakers in your electrical panel will cut power to the circuit if it senses a short. If you have a breaker that keeps tripping, you may have a short circuit in your wiring.
    u

    The refrigerator in my garage trips the GFCI receptacle occasionally, causing the refrigerator to defrost. What is causing this problem?

    Refrigerators have a compressor driven by an electric motor. Depending on the size of the refrigerator, it can draw as much as 1500 watts. The maximum capacity of a 15 amp circuit is between 1500 to 1800 watts. So, the refrigerator may be overloading the circuit, especially if the outlet is on the same circuit with other high-use outlets in the house, such as bathrooms or laundry machines. Installing a dedicated circuit for the refrigerator can solve this problem.
    u

    Is my electrical panel outdated or unsafe?

    An outdated electrical panel isn’t designed to meet the electricity demands of modern living. Today’s homes are often full of smart appliances, digital devices, and electronics. If your home’s electrical panel is over 20 years old and/or less than 200 amps, it’s probably time for an upgrade. Contact us for an inspection and a free estimate on replacing your panel with a model equivalent.
    u

    Why does turning on my cabinet-mounted microwave sometimes trip my circuit breaker?

    Many cabinet-mounted microwaves are added to homes after they are built and draw between 1100 and 1800 watts. Builders often install a range hood above the oven/range with an outlet intended to only power an exhaust fan. The microwave is just too much of a draw for this type of circuit. A new 20-amp 120 volt dedicated circuit will solve the problem of the microwave tipping the breaker.
    u

    Can I change an existing switch to a dimmer switch?

    Installing a dimmer switch properly is fairly straight forward but requires more than simply removing the old switch and replacing it with a new one. You should have an electrician check the condition of the wiring, make sure the switch is grounded properly, and confirm the box is large enough to safely contain the wiring for the new dimmer switch. Any time you want to replace or upgrade a switch in your house or office, call us for a free estimate.
    u

    Why do my smoke detectors chirp?

    An intermittent noise is usually either an indication of a defective smoke detector or a low battery which needs replacement. If you have a smoke detector that’s chirping, change the battery and see if it goes quiet. If it continues to make an intermittent noise after battery replacement the unit is likely defective and needs repair or replacement.
    u

    Can I do my own electrical work?

    The answer to this question depends on many factors including your personal skill set and the electrical issue you are trying to solve. Changing a bulb or resetting a tripped breaker is an easy task for most homeowners. Some people might even be comfortable replacing a fixture or ceiling fan. However, you should be aware that DIY electrical work can be very dangerous. It takes a lot of time and training to become a licensed electrician and live electricity is not something to take lightly. If you’re unsure what your electrical problem is, we recommend calling a professional electrician to troubleshoot and repair your issue. You risk personal injury, fire, property damage, or even death if you attempt to do your own intermediate or advanced electrical work.
