Spotlight on Our Preventative Electrical Maintenance Package

As spring draws to a close, bringing with it the customary flurry of spring cleaning and household upkeep, we're excited to spotlight our Preventative Maintenance Package. Now in its second year, this program is designed to address a crucial yet often overlooked aspect of home maintenance – your electrical system.


While tasks like cleaning air ducts, flushing your hot water heater, and clearing gutters likely feature prominently on your yearly to-do list, ensuring the health and safety of your electrical infrastructure deserves equal attention.


Our curated service package consolidates the most essential annual electrical services into a comprehensive offering, allowing you to effortlessly schedule and address these critical tasks. With our program, you can confidently check off another item from your list, knowing that your home's electrical system is in expert hands, providing you with peace of mind and uninterrupted functionality.


This package includes:

  • Thermal imaging test

  • Check panel box and condition of all connections

  • Check for sizzling or buzzing from electrical panel

  • Light bulb replacement (limited to 5 replacements)

  • Check for proper use of extension cords and power strips

  • Check aging of smoke alarms and placement

  • GFCI receptacle test

  • Full home load test

  • Ground rod test

  • Check for appropriate surge protection

  • Check if electrical service capacity is adequate for present demands


Here are some details on a few of those important tests:


Comprehensive Panel Tune Up: Aluminum expands and shrinks with the weather, and most home builders use aluminum electrical panels.

Panel tune ups--where, among other things, we address loose screws and do a visual inspection--can prevent hazardous loose connections which can cause melting and power issues, as well as spot any blooming issues (breaker problems or aging) and address them before they present themselves.


Ground rod test: Your ground rod is what directs electricity away from your home. It is perhaps the most vital part of your home's electrical safety system. We have a special ground rod test to test continuity of your ground rod, which should be done at least annually.


Thermal Imaging Test: Infrared thermography is a method of inspecting electrical equipment by obtaining heat distribution pictures. This inspection method is based on the fact that most components in a system show an increase in temperature when malfunctioning.


Whole house load test: We utilize a special testing tool to check every outlet in your home to ensure there is no stray voltage.


GFCI receptacles testing: Your GFCI receptacles (the plugs with test buttons on them) are a very important part of your home's safety system. We will test all GFCIs in your home to ensure they are in proper operating order and recommend replacement if needed.


What's not included in the package? We may make suggestions or find deficiencies in your system during our inspections and any replacements or installs would come at an additional cost which will be relayed to you after the visit (this could be GFCI replacement outlets, smoke alarm replacements, or additional panel repairs like separating double tapped neutrals).


In closing, our Preventative Maintenance Package offers a comprehensive solution to safeguarding your home's electrical infrastructure, helping to ensure it operates smoothly and safely year-round. As you consider your home's upkeep, let us handle the electrical maintenance, allowing you to enjoy peace of mind.
