Electrical Panel Upgrades

Outdated, overloaded electrical panels are one of the most common sources of hazards and need for emergency electrical calls outs.

Common electrical emergencies in North Carolina

Operating a home or business without reliable electrical systems poses risks to safety, productivity and even health. While utilities and equipment manufacturers have come a long way in safeguarding power systems, outages and malfunctions still frequently occur. These are three of the most prevalent electrical emergencies across the state that electricians are called out to troubleshoot and repair urgently.

Circuit Breaker Malfunction

Circuit breakers are designed to trip and shut off power flow as a protective mechanism against overloads, but they can also nuisance trip or fail to trip when needed. Signs like frequently popping breakers, outlets not resetting properly, flickering lights or burning smells indicate it’s time for breaker panel repairs. Our electricians can diagnose causes from old age, incorrect sizing, moisture or loose connections and restore normal performance quickly.

Generator Failure

Home backup generators offer insurance against grid outages during bad storms but mechanical issues can leave them unable to start up when depended on most. Our technicians perform generator troubleshooting for problems like bad sensors, fuel flow problems, transfer switch faults and exhaust/cooling breakdowns. We’ll have your backup power source inspected and operational again immediately.

Electrical System Damage

The violent winds, heavy rains, snow and ice as well as falling trees/branches associated with extreme weather events often cause damage to overhead power and property electrical systems here in North Carolina. Our crews are at the ready after hurricanes, tropical storms or blizzards to safely repair damaged service entrance cables, meter equipment, weather heads and conduit that present outages or other hazards like downed power lines.
