Electricity powers almost everything in our lives at this point. But what does that mean for you as a homeowner?

Your electrical system is different from the other major systems in your home in a few big ways. First, it doesn’t have a lot of moving parts to it. That means it should last for a long time if the installation is good and all the connections are tight.

The second difference is how dangerous it can be. Most of the time you’re going to want an electrician to handle things that go wrong. That way you can protect your family from electrocution or a fire. Having said that, we do mention a few simple things you can do.

Along with that simple maintenance, such as annually swapping your smoke detector batteries, or cleaning excess dust on your fixtures, there are several things to be aware of. If you notice any of things such as an outlet that’s too hot to touch, make sure to have an electrician inspect it. We would be happy to send one out if you live in the Portland area. Our licensed electricians will help you to find the problem and the perfect solution. You can give us a call or schedule an appointment online.
