Check out our 5 tips below to see if it’s time for you to give us a call!

Flickering Lights
If your light fixtures are constantly flickering or dimming, there could be multiple problems with your electrical system. For example – If you have an air conditioner and a refrigerator on a single circuit, it might cause your home’s lights to flicker or flash. To avoid this, try plugging larger appliances into separate circuits. Flickering lights could also indicate poor wiring, faulty switches or outlets, overloaded circuits, or other issues in your home.

Frequent Breaker Trips
Circuit breakers occasionally trip when there is a storm, or when there are too many appliances running in your home, at once. If your breaker trips regularly, it’s a sign that you may have too many appliances connected to one circuit, faulty wiring, a worn breaker, or there’s a more serious issue with your electrical system, which needs attention from a professional.

Strange Odor
If you smell something burning or notice a strange “electrical” odor in your home, your electrical system could be overheating. This can be a serious matter that should be taken care of by an electrician immediately, to prevent an electrical fire.

Installing New Electrical Systems in NH & ME
If you’re looking to install wiring, lighting, and control systems in a new or existing building, our team can do it for you! They follow municipal codes to make sure all components are done correctly for safety and efficiency. From outdoor lighting to ceiling light fixtures, we have you covered.

If Your Home Is More Than 20 Years Old…
Unfortunately, older homes are more susceptible to electrical fires and electrical emergencies in NH. Between outdated appliances and old sockets, it’s important to be able to catch these problems before they cause damage. If your home is on the older side, you’re also likely at risk of higher insurance rates, because of this. To make your home less vulnerable to hazards, we recommend upgrading your electric panel. Schedule a routine appointment for us to assess the electrical components in your home.
