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 Robben and Sons in Portland, OR, 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 Portland, OR, 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.
