You probably don’t think much about your St. Pete, FL, home’s electrical system unless something happens. Electricity is something we often take for granted, but it’s a critical part of our lives. It’s important to have your home’s electrical system regularly maintained for many reasons.
Your Family’s Safety
Electricity is safe when everything works as it should. However, your home’s electric system, like any other system, deteriorates over time. Loose wires can cause fires or deliver shocks. Aging outlets can spark or smolder into a house fire. Having a regular inspection ensures that all components are in good working order and operating safely.
Your Family’s Comfort
Regular inspection and maintenance prevent small electrical issues from becoming serious problems. Technicians can identify potential problems that could lead to damaging power surges that take out your electronics or appliances. Skilled electricians can spot possible short circuits that could shut down your home for days.
Your Home’s Value
If your home is over 10 years old, your electric system is probably outdated and won’t meet building codes. Regular maintenance helps you stay on top of safety and codes making your home more marketable.
What We Do for You
At Luminous Electric, our system inspections are thorough and detailed to keep your family safe and comfortable. We’ll check your breaker box for old breakers that could cause damage or fires. We’ll make sure your home grounds properly to prevent electrocution.
Wiring wears down over time, especially in the attic; we’ll check all wiring for connections and ratings.
Anywhere there’s water, there should be a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to protect against accidental shocks. We’ll make sure you have them in the right places and that they’re working.
Our electricians will also check every light switch and outlet for arcing or sparking. Any time sparks or sizzling sounds are present, it’s a fire risk.
