There is no right answer to this question as it all depends on the electrical issue at hand. For instance, changing a bulb doesn't warrant calling an electrician. However, it is important to mention that DIY electrical work can pose a great danger to both your life and your home/business.
If you are unsure of what the electrical problem in your home is, we recommend that you call a qualified and licensed electrician to come to diagnose and fix your electrical issue. Otherwise, you risk an electrical fire, personal injury, or even death.
Signs of a burning electrical outlet include discolouration of the wall outlets, tingling sensation when you touch a device plugged into it, or a strong burning smell coming from the outlet.
If you experience any of these signs, call an electrician to have your electric system inspected and fixed to keep your home and family safe.
Well, you can change your day-to-day habits and upgrade your lighting system to a more energy-efficient system. Some of the things you can do to lower your electric needs include investing in energy-efficient light bulbs, install alternative sources of energy such a solar system, replace appliances that are more than 10years old with more energy-efficient ones, and turn off appliances when not in use.
Loose or damaged electrical outlets can pose a fire hazard, and thus need to be repaired or replaced. If you feel a buzzing sound from your outlets, especially when plugging in home appliances or outlets generating spark or having loose-fitting plugs, you should consider calling an electrician to come and inspect them.
If you don't have power even after correctly resetting your home's circuit breaker, then your breaker might be overloaded, or there is faulty wiring to blame. Our licensed and certified electricians can inspect and test circuits to diagnose and fix the problem. Breakers also wear out over time and thus may need an upgrade to a new breaker panel.
Standard-sized services for most residential applications range from 100amps to 400amps. The general rule of thumb for determining the approximate size of the electrical system to install in your home is to look at what you are looking to service.
For instance, 100amps will service a range- general lighting, water heater, and receptacle outlets. This is usually recommended for vacation cabins or workshops. Talk to an electrical service near you to know the perfect size of the electrical system for your home.
For example, electric hot water tanks are less efficient than gas ones, if you have and older electric water heater then consider and upgrade.
Monitor your electricity use, turn off lights and devices when not using them.
Change your lighting to more efficient bulbs Replace light switches with motion detectors in room to automatically turn light on and off.
Try to make use of natural lighting whenever possible

We have had several good experiences with windfall team. Most recently, they replaced our 20-year-old HVAC system with a new, modern, and more efficient system & it worked fine.

I had them replace a fuse panel with a breaker panel and the job was done exactly when they said it would be done and at the cost, they quoted. The installer was prompt and dressed neatly.
