Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Electrician Services
We’re more than happy to discuss the problems you’re having or answer your questions about our residential electrician services! If you have questions which aren’t answered below and live in the Vacaville area, don’t hesitate to contact us for answers.
How often should I get an electrical inspection?
Our Vacaville electricians recommend getting an electrical inspection for your home about every 5 to 7 years to make sure your electrical panel and wiring is still supporting the load of your household and that no problems have occurred.
Also, an electrical inspection should be done anytime you’re concerned about your wiring or another problem.
What’s the difference between GFCI outlets and AFCI outlets?
We’re glad you asked because there is a major difference. GFCI outlets protect you and your family from electrical shock while AFCI outlets protect your home from fire due to electrical arcs. We can install dual GFCI/AFCI outlets to protect you from both.
Why do my lights dim when I turn on the microwave in the kitchen?
If the lights dim when you turn on the microwave, you need an electrical inspection as soon as possible. This is a sign that you’re demanding too much power than the electrical system can support.
What is an LED Retrofit Service?
An LED retrofit service is much different than just using LED light bulbs in regular light fixtures. We replace the light socket with an LED socket which is specifically made for the bulbs.
This gives you the most energy efficiency possible whereas just using the bulb in a standard incandescent light fixture only offers you some savings.
