Homes change over the years, with new additions, upgrades, and other functional and aesthetic installations. Over time, these changes can create mismatches in the electrical system, become outdated or obsolete, or simply wear out.

That’s why it’s important to have regular electrical inspections and consider when electrical replacements or upgrades may be necessary. 

Apollo Home offers professional electrical replacement and upgrade services in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, as well as in Northern Kentucky. 

Signs You Need Electrical Upgrades or Replacements

Electrical components are slow to wear out, but they can and do. Watch for these signs that you need an electrical replacement or upgrade:

  • Flickering or Dimming Lights: This is a common sign of loose connections, overloaded circuits, or outdated wiring.
  • Frequently Tripping Breakers: If your breakers trip frequently, it means your circuits are overloaded or faulty and could be a fire hazard.
  • Warm Outlets or Switches: This is a dangerous sign that could indicate loose wiring or faulty components. Turn off the associated circuit breaker and schedule an electrical repair to fix it.
  • Sparking Outlets, Switches, or Circuit Breakers: This is a serious fire hazard and should be addressed immediately.
  • Limited Number of GFCI Outlets: GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets protect you from shock in areas prone to moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Aluminum Wiring: If your home was built before the mid-1970s, it may have aluminum wiring, which can become loose over time and lead to fires.
  • Adding New Appliances or Features: If you plan to add new appliances, fixtures, or features to your home, you may need to upgrade your electrical system to handle the increased load.

Expert Electrical Replacements & Upgrades

If your home was built before 1980 or you haven’t had one recently, it’s definitely worth scheduling an electrical inspection to ensure your electrical system is safe and up to code. In some cases, houses may require a whole-home rewiring and possibly an electrical panel upgrade in order to meet electrical safety standards. 

However, in most cases, we can replace just the faulty electrical section to get your home functioning and back into safety compliance. Here are some common electrical replacements and upgrades we perform:

  • Electrical Panel
  • Wire Replacement
  • Outlet & Switch Replacement
  • Indoor & Outdoor Lighting
  • Surge Protection
  • Whole-Home Generator
  • Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

These are just a few of the residential electrical upgrades we perform every day in Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky. If you need electrical replacements or upgrades, contact Apollo Home for expert electrical services.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
