Outlet Installation

Whether you have an older home with an outlet that isn’t working properly or a new house that needs a few extra outlets, installing them should always be done by a professional. Improperly installed outlets not only violate building codes, it can be very dangerous.

Flickering lights

If a flickering light needs more than screwing in a lightbulb tighter, it’s time to call a professional electrician. It can be an indication of an overloaded circuit or loose electrical wiring. It is important to resolve the issue with a proper diagnosis.

Warm Outlets or Switches

When an outlet or switch is warm (or even shocks you) to the touch, it is an indication there is an overloaded circuit or potentially something more dangerous. 

Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

It is critical for any type of smoke or carbon monoxide detector is installed properly. They are essential for the safety of any building.
