Can I Identify If My Home's Electrical System Has Problems?
A home's electrical system is invisible so you need to be observant. Here are some simple, tell-tale signs that your home's electrical system has problems:
- flickering lights
- breakers switching off on their own
- switch plates feel warm
- power receptacles feel warm
- plugs spark when used
If your home was built before 1990, chances are there are problems lurking that you haven't yet seen. So to be safe, we recommend that you have an Oakwood Electrical Specialist come to your home and thoroughly test your electrical system.
Remodeling a kitchen, bathroom or family room usually requires a list of electrical improvements including:
- a new electrical service panel
- wiring upgrades
- installation of new breakers in your old panel.
For example, a new entertainment center in the family room may require significant changes to your current electrical service in that room. Not sure what your new setup requires? No problem - Oakwood Electric will help you evaluate all your home's power needs.
Sometimes after you redecorate a room the transformation is still lacking something. Often, it comes down to choosing the correct lighting:
- accent lighting
- indirect lighting
- under-the-cabinet lighting
- inner cabinet lighting
- improved lighting inside closets
- ceiling can lights
Electrical Panel Service
Today every household has electrical needs that simply did not exist 20 or 30 years ago. Often, such older homes have outdated electrical panels and wiring that are simply unable to handle the new electrical loads.
Such out-of-date systems create hidden panel and wiring hazards that will eventually cause fires deep within the home's infrastructure. Simply put, older electrical systems cannot handle your modern power demands.
