Ceiling Fans

Do you have a ceiling fan in your home? Ceiling fans are helpful here in the heat of our Alabama summers. Ceiling fans work to move air throughout the room from the ceiling to the floor to create a breeze—this allows your body to feel cooler.

We’re now moving quickly into winter and ceiling fans are also helpful in cold weather too. When you run your heater in the winter, you can switch on your heating fan to move the heat down into your living area instead of rising to the ceiling.

Additional Outlets

Do you have enough outlets in your home? Are these outlets adequate? It’s important to have enough because it’s common because your requirements for electrical power to grow quickly. If you find yourself using multiple power strips and extension cords for your daily tasks around your home, you’re a good candidate for an electrical upgrade.

Additionally, you might benefit from new outlets if your outlets are under par. Do you ever plug in an outlet and find your plug lying on the floor a few minutes later? It’s because your outlets lack grip and need upgrading. When the clip that’s intended to hold the plug wears out, this plug can feel loose. Don’t let this go unaddressed—it’s a big fire hazard.

Whole-Home Surge Protection

A power surge can destroy your electronics and cost you thousands of dollars in replacement costs. To avoid this disastrous occurrence, you should have whole-home surge protection. Power strips don’t provide adequate surge protection across your home, it only provides surge protection for small spaces. Our surge protection services will keep your home safe.

Electrical Panel Upgrades

Many old panels are of low quality or simply stop working and need to upgrading. Your electrical panel is extremely important because it distributes the electrical power to the various areas of your home.
