Your Sarasota home can’t run without electricity, but many homeowners don’t realize that regular maintenance is the best way to keep things running smoothly. Here’s how electrical maintenance can help you save in the long run.
Smoke Alarm Tests
Even though they’re one of the easiest home appliances to test, homeowners often neglect to check smoke alarms. The technicians at Luminous Electric understand how critical these devices are to your family’s safety, so ensuring they’re maintained and working properly is at the top of the checklist. Technicians can also check to make sure your carbon monoxide alarms function correctly.
During a preventive maintenance check, technicians inspect your home’s wiring for defects, wear, and bad connections. They pay close attention to your home’s attic and crawl spaces, where they make sure wiring is adequate for your home’s needs. Technicians also inspect breaker boxes so you’re not left spending big to deal with power outages or shortages, even as your electricity needs increase.
Arcing Switch Checks
If you’ve ever heard a crackling sound when you turn on the lights in your Bradenton home, there’s a good chance you have an arcing switch. This happens when a bad connection makes electricity arc to other available conduits. This often causes sparking and can lead to a fire near your light switch. If the technician finds an arcing switch in your home, he or she will recommend the best way to keep your electrical system safe and operational to reduce the risk of expensive interior damage.
Many older homes don’t have grounded connections, so it’s important to install these retroactively to protect your family from shock. During preventive maintenance, our technicians confirm proper operation, especially in high-risk areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. Technicians can also discuss installing additional ground-fault circuit interrupters throughout your home to help you prevent costly electrical issues in the future.
