FAQs

What should I do if my lights go out?

Check to see if any circuit breakers are tripped or if any fuse or the light bulb has blown and replace if necessary.

 

Why do my lights flicker in my house?

Central air conditioners or heat pumps may cause a noticeable dimming of the lights when they  start up. Lights may flicker or dim on startup of some appliances (eg dryer) or motor driven equipment. Check with your local power company for possible defects in the supply source.

Can you complete work the same day you provide estimate?

This greatly depends on the job. If it is a small electrical job  we may be able to complete it on the same day, but generally we will return at an appointed time once the estimate has been agreed.

 

Will my electrical repair project require an electrical building permit?

Most household service work will not require a permit. Larger projects such as room additions  and panel upgrades will require a permit and subsequent inspections. Failure to follow building codes could mean you will not be able to get a Code of Compliance when your project is complete.

 

How does a surge protector work?

Once the surge protector is in place, it will redirect surges to the ground and dissipate the energy. The surge protection selected must be UL rated on response time. A point to remember is that the greater the surge current rating, the longer the surge protector will last.
