What type of services do our residential electricians provide?
Are you remodeling a portion of your home? Perhaps you have decided to add an accessory dwelling unit to your property or are planning to refinish your basement or add an extra room to your home. Remodeling your home is a big job and ensuring that it is wired safely is important. Because a lot of your electrical system is hidden behind walls, it can be easy to forget about the details of the electrical system when you’re planning your remodel. Discussing the details of your remodel with us will help you consider home electrical wiring upgrades that you might not have thought about before. We are happy to work with you while you plan your home renovation.
Knob and Tube Rewires:
Knob and tube wiring was used in homes that were built before 1950. This type of wiring uses copper conductors, which is a big fire hazard. This is partly because there is rubber insulation that will flake off over time and leave exposed metal conductors. In addition, the wires can get extremely hot and if they come into contact with insulation, it could easily start a fire. So, if your home was built before 1950, you should make sure our team of Tacoma electricians does a thorough walk-through of your residence. We will take the time to look closely at the wiring and see if converting your knob and tube wiring system to a code-compliant modern electrical system is required.
Custom home wiring:
Today’s homes are wired for safety, entertainment, sound, and unique lighting. Whether it’s custom LED indoor or outdoor lights, a security lighting system for your property, wiring a sound system for your home or back patio, undercabinet lighting for your kitchen, or something else, custom lighting will give your home the unique touch you’re looking for. We have extensive expertise in custom home wiring, so you can count on things to be completed accurately, on-time, and reliably.
Are some of the electrical sockets in your house warm, or you have a broken light switch? Maybe your lights keep flickering, or the circuit breaker keeps tripping. These types of electrical issues are not something you want to try to fix yourself. Without the right tools, training, and hands-on experience, you could be taking on a dangerous project.
Electrical panel changes:
Your electrical panel is not built to last forever. They usually have a lifespan of up to 40 years, but sometimes they need to be replaced or changed before that. Other signs that you may need your panel replaced include:
- rust on the panel
- circuit breakers are always tripping
- burned areas on the panel
If you notice any of these things on your electrical panel, you’ll likely need to get a replacement installed by a team of licensed electricians.
If you have noticed that you are running out of power capacity with your current number of electrical circuits, you may need to add more circuits. Additional circuits allow for you to add more outlets to your home. Planning and wiring the circuits is the first step, but then the circuits will need to be connected to the circuit breaker on the main electrical panel. This type of project is easy for our team at Tapps Electric, so contact us today to learn more about how we can help get more circuits added where you need them most.
