Electrical Frequently Asked Questions

When should I have the electrical system of my house upgraded?

There are many signs to look for to see if your Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties home or business requires an upgrade on its electrical system. One sign is if your breakers are being tripped on a regular basis. This means that your system is being overloaded or you may have a breaker which is overly sensitive.

Another sign is if you have outlets which used to function but no longer do. This indicates that there is a bad connection somewhere and it should be dealt with immediately. Bad connections have a chance to spark which can be very dangerous to you and your property.

It is also important to look for dim lighting. If a light bulb is not producing the amount of light that it should according to its make and model then there is probably a bad connection somewhere along the line which should be checked by a professional. Flickering is an indication of bad circuits as well. However, make sure to check that the bulb is tightly connected to the fixture, as this may also cause flickering.

When should I consider having electrical remodeling?

Often the people of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties only consider having electrical remodeling done when they are having other forms of remodeling done on their home. This is indeed a good reason to have electrical remodeling done as you can change the layout of your outlets and modify the circuits to accommodate the new space. However, you can have your system remodeled to save yourself money. If your electrical system is old then it is probably not be running as efficiently as it could be. By having your Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties home or business remodeled you can take a significant amount off of your utility bill which also increases the resale value of your property.
