Are the candles mood lighting or do you need an electrician? This time of year offers many opportunities to gather friends and family. Be sure your electrical systems are up to the demand whether it’s a quiet evening at home or you’re expecting a gaggle of relatives for the afternoon. After all, you want to use candles for ambiance, not from necessity!
At Apollo Home, we’re eager to help.
Ask an Electrician to Inspect Your Electrical Panel
If your home was manufactured as recently as the 1990s, you may have an electrical panel from the Federal Pacific Electric Company. One of the most common panel manufacturers between the 1950s and the 1990s, these panels are at great risk of breaker malfunction and fire.
If you have one, or an older relative’s home has one, it ought to be replaced. You or other homeowners may be unaware of the risk because the company went out of business. Authorities determined the company committed testing fraud and knowingly labeled breakers as meeting UL standards when they were defective.
You may also be in the market for an upgraded panel if you plan a renovation or have upgraded your needs. If you maintain a home office or have installed a pool with a heater or exterior lighting, you may need to upgrade. Not sure? Call for an inspection. If you’re a member of the Apollo Care Plan, schedule your annual electrical evaluation today. It’s included for Plan members.
An Electrician Can Shield Your Home with Surge Protection
As our electrical needs have grown, we are more at risk for power surges. You may assume the surge protection strip is sufficient but it’s not. Take a moment and think about all the items in your home plugged into a power source.
Think of your appliances, your computers, gaming systems, chargers, security cameras, speakers and televisions. Whole-home surge protection is like a secondary home insurance policy.
Remember, surges manifest from multiple sources and are not limited to external events like severe weather. Contact our team for a free estimate, based on your electrical needs.
