Electricity is central to our lives, most particularly our lives at home. Experience a power outage to see how integral electricity is to the running of our day-to-day lives. Though a simple flip of a switch often turns the power on to a light, electronic, or appliance, electricity is anything but simple. While some electrical projects can be left to do-it-yourselfers, the majority of electrical projects and services need to be in the hands of professionals. There are many ways a professional electrician can add value to your home life and take care of so many electrical needs. Please contact Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC in Littleton, MA, and one of our expert licensed professionals will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Energy-Efficient Electrical Upgrades
Saving money and leaving a smaller global footprint are both smart goals for any homeowner. One way to achieve both of these goals simultaneously is with energy-efficient electrical upgrades. Upgrading by replacing existing electrical appliances or installing new energy-efficient electrics are both valuable decisions. Stumped as to where to even begin? Try looking at installing energy-efficient lighting, upgrading to or purchasing energy-efficient electrical appliances, utilizing an electricity usage monitor, changing traditional bulbs to more energy-efficient choices, and upgrading your standard power strips to advanced power strips.
Electrical Services and Repairs
As mentioned above, there are a few electrical projects that can safely be tackled by a homeowner. That said, it’s always a safer course to consult with a professional electrician to perform any electrical service or repair. Electricity is nothing to leave to chance. Whether it’s an upgrade or new-construction project, common electrical services and repairs that homeowners explore run the full gamut of generators all the way down to loose wall switches. Don’t hesitate to contact a professional for any of your electrical needs.
Whether you own an historic home in need of all new wiring or you’ve been thinking about upgrading to accommodate the energy-efficient appliances and high-tech electronics you’re going to be splurging on, there are some things to keep in mind when rewiring your entire home:
Hire a licensed professional electrician.
- Make an electrical inventory of what devices you’ll be using and their locations.
- Plan on some holes in walls, ceilings, and floors, where the wiring’s located.
- Pull permits, and check with the Littleton, MA, planning department.
- Think about moving out during the rewire.
- Move your valuables and furniture to storage.
New-construction electrical projects require a team of contractors working together. No one works in a vacuum in new construction. There are timelines and budgets to adhere to, and without everyone working together, these are rarely adequately met. From the beginning to the end of a build, our professional electricians will interact as team members, bringing their experience and knowledge to the project. Whether it’s building a new garage, adding on an extra room, or building your dream home, our knowledgeable professionals can handle all the electrical needs.
