Many of us have electrical hazards in our homes, and don’t realize it. That’s why it’s a good idea to have an electrical inspection every few years. Prevention is the best cure for dangerous accidents. Call a Philadelphia Electrical Contractor today.
Frequently, people live in homes that were built twenty years ago, and don’t realize all the electrical improvements they need. The fuses and circuit breakers in your home need to be upgraded for today’s more sophisticated electrical appliances and computer technology. Philadelphia Electrical Contractor installs whole house surge protectors. Power surges can cause a lot of equipment damage. Power surges happen when something boosts the electrical charge at some point in the power lines. Several items in the home require protection from electrical surges including the refrigerator, computer, washer/dryer, air conditioner, television and security system.
Outlets are also a major concern in the home. Most of the time, it seems like there’s never enough outlets. And, outlets deteriorate over time. Pretty soon, half of the outlets in a room don’t work.

The company also has all the latest including rotating outlets, floor outlets and recessed outlets.
Electricians can help to make your home more energy efficient. There are new thermostats that help save energy. Ceiling fans also help to save energy. You can save between 25 to 40 percent on your cooling costs. Don’t try to install ceiling fans, yourself. Injuries happen every day because homeowners try to handle electrical wires. Ask Philadelphia Electrical Contractor about a new tankless water heater. The Department of Energy says some homes can be 24 to 34 percent more energy efficient when they have a tankless heater.
If you have children, you need the electrician to childproof your home. Injuries often happen when children insert metal objects into outlets. An electrician can install child safety outlets with automatic shutters. All new homes are required to have child proof outlets. Most people don’t realize everything that an electrician does. They improve our homes and look out for our safety.
