Troubleshooting An Electrical Problem
The electrical footprint of your Fort Washington, MD home is like the spine of your body. If there are problems with the electrical system, the house could suffer issues in one area and effect dozens of other. When you notice a problem with your electricity you need to speak to an experienced and trusted electrician from Circuit Doctors® Electrical Services, LLC about your concerns. Electrical work should only be performed by a licensed electrician and no one else. It’s never a good idea to mess with electricity as the slightest mistake could wind up causing a short, a trip, or worse, a fire. When you call our local electrician, you will be working with someone who has been in the industry for more than 30 years and someone who is dedicated to providing superior service for customers in the Fort Washington, MD and surrounding areas. Please see just a handful of our services below:
Bathroom Exhaust Fan Installation
The exhaust fan in the bathroom is an important electrical upgrade for every home. These fans are required in bathrooms that do not have windows in them. The exhaust fans remove the steam from the bathroom caused by taking a hot bath or shower. Too much steam in the bathroom can lead to mold and mildew and even activate the smoke alarm in your home when you open the bathroom door. Older fans can be very noisy. We can install a new fan in your bathroom to remove steam, reduce noise, and run efficiently.
Install GFCI Outlets
Outlets that are close to sinks and other water sources in your home require GFCIs. GFCIs are ground fault circuit protection outlets. They trip when water hits them so that the person plugging something into them does not suffer a shock. GFCI outlets should also be installed in unfinished basements and unfinished garages. An unfinished attic that has electric service in it should also have GFCI outlets installed. The benefit of an GFCI outlet is that you can reset it from a button on the outlet if it trips instead of finding the tripped breaker in the electrical panel.
An important part of any home’s electrical system is surge protection. This feature protects your appliances from getting fried during a power outage or power surge. Having appliances that work properly make it easy to run your household, especially the washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, oven and refrigerator. The same goes for your air conditioning unit. A home without the right amount of surge protection can end in costly repairs and replacement of your appliances if you lose power or there are surges. For long term improvements, you may want to look into upgrading your homes electrical system. Additionally, if you home’s electrical panel is the problem you may need to evaluate replacing the electrical panel.
The trusted and experienced electricians from Circuit Doctors® Electrical Services, LLC can also rewire your home from top to bottom if the need arises. A home should be rewired, or at least inspected for older wiring, if it is 40 years old or older, has aluminum wiring, or has been severely damaged. Damage that often leads to home rewiring includes fires and floods as well as damage caused by severe weather events. How do you know when your home needs to be rewired? Frequent flickering of lights, frequent circuit breakers tripping, being shocked when plugging an item into an outlet, frequently replacing burned out lightbulbs and a burning smell are just a few signs that it might be time to rewire your home.
