Electrical Safety Services
Electrical safety is our biggest concern at Mr. Electric®. Putting safety first protects you, your property, your loved ones, and your coworkers from the common hazards of improper electrical installation. Correctly installed electrical equipment and wiring also last longer, are less likely to break down, and ultimately perform better. Our electricians are here to help make your home or business as safe and efficient as possible.
Our expert electricians can help you with childproofing outlets, whole-house surge protectors, wiring upgrades, and electrical safety inspections, just to name a few. Check out our additional services below, for your home and business!
Child Proof Outlets
Because there is no such thing as constant, uninterrupted adult supervision, child proof outlets protect your children and those of invited guests. These outlets, also called tamper-proof receptacles, are so effective that as of 2008 the National Electrical Code (NEC) has required their installation in all new homes. Unlike the child proof outlets of the past, these don’t impede your ability to use them effectively either, they simply prevent improper usage.
Electrical Safety Inspections
Electrical issues are the primary cause of house fires that lead to property damage in the U.S. To identify and address electrical safety issues, a thorough and professional electrical safety inspection is needed. Schedule your electrical safety inspection today with Mr. Electric for a detailed, prioritized checklist of recommendations for your home.
Dedicated Computer Circuits
Chances are your company can’t function without computers. Unfortunately, a tripped circuit or a blown fuse can put your computers in jeopardy. To avoid tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses, Mr. Electric can install a dedicated circuit breaker that only controls your computer systems. That means that other office electrical appliances can’t take down computers if they happen to overload the system.
Electrical Code Updates
Electrical codes are updated every three years by the National Electric Code (NEC), the nation's singular code for safe electrical installation, in order to protect people and property from electrical hazards. Is your home up to current NEC standards?
Power surges can happen in a flash, resulting from a variety of causes, and ruin your expensive electronics. Installing a whole house surge protector keeps the technology in your home safe from damage.
GFCI outlets are used in areas like the kitchen, bathroom, or garage, where the risk of electrical shock is greater. They can be identified by the “test” and “reset” buttons located on the receptacle. These outlets help protect you from electrical hazards by monitoring the amount of electricity flowing in a circuit and tripping the circuit if an imbalance is detected. Once detected, the outlet stops the flow of electricity to prevent shorts, electrical fires, and dangerous shocks.
Old, outdated wiring not only poses a safety hazard in your home, but also keeps you from using the full range of functionality of your devices. Prevent a dangerous electrical fire and quit worrying about unplugging one device so you can plug in another — update your wiring with Mr. Electric.
Circuit Breaker Replacements
You need sufficient electrical capacity on a circuit if appliances and devices are to function properly. Without it, you could trip the breaker or even blow a fuse. In some cases, circuit breaker replacement may remedy overload issues without the need for an electrical panel upgrade, effectively handling electrical needs and preventing electrical fires at the same time.
