From turning on the lights to running your dishwasher, plugging in your blow dryer to charging your phone, your electrical system enables your home to operate efficiently and safely. But when your system is outdated, damaged or weak, it won’t just impact the flow and effortlessness of your life—it can also jeopardize the safety of your home and everyone in it. That’s why we offer a variety of safety and code violation services that will ensure your home is safe and compliant.
Here at Accent Electric, we provide the following safety and code violation services:
When the main power service lines in your home become frayed, it is best to call on the professionals at Accent Electric. Whether you simply need the wire replaced or you need to upgrade your service to a higher amperage, our experts will make sure your home’s safety is improved.
Overloaded circuits occur when you are drawing an amount of electricity that exceeds what your circuit can handle. In mild cases, this involves lights going out. In severe cases, this can cause house fires. We will repair or upgrade your circuits so that they can meet your electricity needs and keep your home safe.
In order to provide your home with the best defense against home fires, you need to make sure that your smoke detectors are up-to-date—that’s why we replace smoke detectors for our clients every ten years.
Tamper Resistant Receptacles
We help enhance electrical safety in a home by providing tamper resistant receptacle installation services. Because these automatically close the electrical slots in an outlet, they are a great way to protect against electrical injuries that typically affect young children.
Arc Fault Circuit Protection
Depending on the electrical circuit that is in your home, the National Electrical code may require you to have an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs) system installed. With our AFCI installation service, your home won’t just meet coding standards—it will also decrease the odds of your electrical system being the cause of a home fire.
Ground Fault Circuit Protection
Similar to Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters, Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters may be required to ensure that your electrical circuit fulfills the necessary code requirements. Unlike how an AFCI helps prevent home fires, a ground fault interrupter helps improve the electrical safety of your home by protecting your loved ones from the life-threatening effects of electric shock around wet areas.
Knob and Tube Wiring
If your home was built in the 1940s or earlier—and its electrical system was never updated—it most likely has knob and tube wiring. This outdated technique can increase the chances of your system short-circuiting and overheating. To prevent this, we provide rewiring services for homes with knob and tube wiring, so you can upgrade your system and enjoy better efficiency and improved safety.
Whether you are constantly dealing with overloaded circuits, are looking to incorporate more child-safety features or upgrade your wiring system, the mechanics at Accent Electric can help! Contact us today to schedule your safety and code violation service.
