Why should I hire an electrician?
Modern houses contain wiring. While electrical wires are insulated and have been since the middle of the 20th century, they still transport dangerous current.
The growth of devices brought increased demand for voltage. Any wall you want to break into likely contains wiring. Repairing electrical subsystems is particularly dangerous, especially if you do not know where the appropriate fuse is.
Electricians know how to avoid problems when performing repairs, attaching equipment, and adding expansions to your home. Our experts are trained and certified to provide quality service.
What is the average cost of an electrician?
Electricians deal with your home’s most important system. Still, costs remain reasonable.
The average cost to fix outlets, switches, and fans ranges from $141 to $419. Larger projects cost between $2000 and $6000. No other do-it-yourself project is more dangerous than handling electricity.
Fixing fans, outlets, and switches
Fans, outlets, and switches wear over time. Outlets last between 15 and 25 years depending on the quality of your product. In extreme circumstances, your components may fail in as little as five years.
Fans, outlets, and switches are hard-wired into your homes electrical grid. Unlike replacing a toaster, replacing them is a difficult chore requiring knowledge of your home in addition to the equipment. Our experts handle calls every day dealing with home appliances.
How do I know that my fuse is not blown?
From time to time, a broken fuse is the culprit of your appliance failure. Replacing a fuse is simple and costs almost nothing. A standard fuse lasts decades but with homes aging rapidly, it is not uncommon for them to wear out.
Houses in the United States were built, on average, over 25 years ago. The median age in the greater Atlanta area is 35 years. Fuses will rust and wear over time.
There are multiple common signs of a broken fuse. Look for rust, broken glass, and singed ends. If these are not present, an electrician might be needed to find the problem.
The law requires you to find a licensed electrician for any project valued over $2500. Our electricians are not only licensed, they are experts in their field. From install ceiling fans to wiring CAT6 for your internet, we are trained, licensed, and insured to handle your toughest problems.
