Residential Electrical Service Experts Explain Your Home’s Electrical System

Common Defects

Residential-Electrical-ServiceSafety hazards in the electrical system could result in fires if they’re not addressed. An inspector will look closely for problems like corroded aluminum wiring, water leaking into electrical components, and improper grounding. Keep in mind, a basic home inspector may not have the expertise necessary to identify these issues. You’re better off hiring an electrical contractor.

Potential Upgrades

Even if your wiring is deemed safe, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make changes. Older homes may have been built when the average homeowner used fewer appliances. To support your modern life, it may be necessary to install additional outlets and related components. The contractor might also provide energy management advice to help you boost the efficiency of your system.

Lighting Fixtures

Although they may be technically safe, you still might want to consider replacing your lighting fixtures if you’re moving into an older home. The wiring in them can grow brittle over the years, making them more likely to fail if you don’t make upgrades.

Residential electric service will educate you on what you need to update in your home to avoid potential disasters. Quantum Electric in Austin is on hand to make any necessary repairs. Contact them online to learn about what they can do for you, or call (512) 246-1145 to schedule an appointment.
