If you live in an older home, chances are that your current electrical system is out of date. Homes that were wired prior to 1990 were not designed to handle today's electrical needs. The only way to effectively solve this problem is a whole-home rewiring.
Whole-home rewiring is a dirty and labor intensive job. Many of our competitors won't even consider it. Some electricians will simply encourage you to keep pouring money into an outdated, and many times, unsafe electrical system that will never meet your needs.
WE are different. We specialize in whole-home rewiring, and we have an innovative process to make it as painless as possible.
We understand that living in a home that is being rewired is inconvenient. No one wants to live with the dust and noise of a rewiring job, while being without power to most rooms in their home for days at a time.
We can rewire your entire home, complete with a new electrical panel, in as little as 3 days! And...here's the best part. We will put you and your family in a comfortable hotel for the duration of the entire project! You can treat it like a "staycation" for your family.
Want even better news? It's all included in the price, and if you qualify, you can finance the entire cost!
In the following sections, we will discuss some very dangerous electrical components that may be present in your home. Take a few moments to read about some of your home's electrical components that may be putting you and your family at risk. Whether you just need to replace a few fixtures, or need a complete rewiring, we will strive to find the best and most cost efficient solution. Our first priority is to ensure that your electrical system is safe, and is providing for all of your family's needs.
Some panels are so dangerous, we recommend that they be replaced immediately. Go look at your electrical panel. If you find one of these, you should contact Absolute Power Solutions as soon as possible. Many insurance carriers may increase your premiums, or even cancel your policy if they find one of these panels in your home. Don't worry, we can provide safe, affordable solutions for almost any budget. We offer flexible financing, with multiple payment options, so you can have peace of mind.
If you can read the word, "Zinsco" (sometimes labeled GTE-Sylvania or Sylvania) anywhere on your electrical panel, either on a sticker, or imprinted onto the panel itself, you are at risk! These potentially faulty panels have been taken off the market, but they were widely installed up to the 1970's. If your home has one of these panels, you should have it replaced by a certified professional.
These panels can be extremely dangerous, and have led to numerous house fires all over the country. The root cause is that the circuit breakers fail to trip when they should. This can lead to overheating in the panel. It can also lead to electrocution risk when working on a circuit that is believed to be turned off, but still has power flowing through it. To tell if you have a FPE panel, look for the name on the panel door, or cover. The name "Stab-Loc" may also be on the circuit breakers.
A split-bus panel has two sets of breakers, with a separate main to control power to each. Modern electrical code does not allow for multiple disconnects. If your home is more than 40 years old, there is a good chance that you have a split-bus panel. We can install a new, modern electrical panel, that meets modern electrical code requirements.
Unlike a circuit breaker, fuses cannot be reset once they are blown. Instead, the fuse must be replaced. With today's modern appliances and electrical demand, fuses easily become overloaded. Some homeowners, in attempt to keep the fuse from blowing, will replace a smaller fuse with a larger one. Even worse, some will remove the fuse altogether, and insert a metal object. This bypasses the overload protection creating a major fire hazard! Fuse boxes should be replaced, to keep your home safe.
Even if your panel has been updated within the past few years, you may still have safety issues. Outdated components of your home's electrical system can pose a danger to you and your loved ones. Even if some of these components are still working, they might not be working properly, or efficiently. Absolute Power Solutions can assess your wiring, light fixtures, and outlets, to insure that your home's electrical system is working safely, and efficiently .
Outdated wiring is often a serious safety concern. If your home has cloth covered, aluminum, or knob and tube wiring, your risk of a fire is greatly increased! This outdated wiring is also a major concern for your insurance company. Many insurance carriers may increase your premiums, or cancel your policy, should they become aware of these types of wiring in your home. If you suspect that you may have outdated wiring, schedule a Safety Evaluation with us today. We can offer affordable Solutions.
Old light fixtures are inefficient and unattractive. Most of them use standard bulbs, which aren't very bright, and can potentially present a hazard. In an attempt to make them brighter, many homeowners choose bulbs that have a higher wattage than the fixture is rated for. This creates the potential for overheating, which can lead to a fire. We can install new LED light fixtures which are safer, brighter, and lower your energy bill.
A broken outlet can be very dangerous. When the outlet, or its cover are broken, there is not only potential for a fire, but also for electrocution. Visible wires, burn marks, or black spots are all signs of serious problems in your electrical system. If your home has any two-pronged outlets, or outlets in the kitchen, bathrooms, and garage which are not GFCI protected, these should be replaced immediately. Allow us to provide low cost options for the safety of your home and family.
