A power surge in your home or commercial building has the capacity to destroy all of the electronics that are connected to your outlets and even start a deadly electrical fire. With whole-home surge protection, a simple device is installed directly onto your electrical panel that can help to prevent the unpredictable and potentially devastating effects of a power surge.
House fires and carbon monoxide poisoning are ever-present dangers in your home or commercial building, but the threat of them can be greatly mitigated by the simple installation of smoke and CO2 detectors. We can help you run the wiring necessary to install them in the most effective possible areas.
You may not know this, but if your home is wired with aluminum wiring, it’s becoming more and more of a hazard to live there by the day.

Are the lights in your home flickering? Flickering lights are a sign that your electrical system is being overloaded. Large appliances can overwhelm the system, and running more than one at a time makes this worse.
That is the first sign that your electrical system is taking on more than it can handle, and you should give us a call.
Besides flickering lights, tripping breakers show that your electrical panel needs an upgrade. Tripping breakers occur when a circuit breaker detects an uneven electrical flow. With an old or outdated panel, this is going to happen more often.
You shouldn’t smell burning when your electrical panel is operating. That includes odd odors coming from outlets.
When an electrical fire is imminent, you’re going to smell something burning. Additionally, your outlets should not have discoloration or produce smells. If you notice either, give us a call immediately.
Is there one outlet in your home that never seems to work? Or are there multiple outlets that do not work? If this is the case, your electrical panel is going to need an upgrade.
When the electrical panel deteriorates, the wires between the board and outlets fray, causing the connection to weaken. A weak connection can lead to:
If you have been experiencing any of the above, it’s time to call the best electricians in Austin, TX.
Do you have plans to remodel or add new appliances to your home? The first step is making sure that your panel can handle the increased demand. Even if you have empty spaces on your panel, adding more connections can cause it to break down.
Get a professional, like SALT, to inspect the panel beforehand. We will let you know if it can handle more demand or if an upgrade is necessary for your remodeling plans.
There are a few things you’ll want to consider when thinking about a panel replacement.
Your electrical panel may be too old if your home is older than 20 years. Older panels cannot keep up with the demands of modern homes. Sometimes, even an upgrade isn’t enough to keep the board working.
Modern homes are running more appliances than in the past, and your electrical panel needs to keep up. If your home is older than 20 years, your electrical panel may be too old.
Are you running lots of appliances, charging devices, and using lights all at the same time? If so, and your home is older, then it’s likely that your electrical panel cannot handle the demand.
Like any other appliance, if you constantly need to repair the panel, it may need replacing. It is more cost-effective to buy an upgrade rather than keep fixing the panel.
Spending money to fix the electrical panel adds up. If you want to save money, it’s best to get a replacement panel.
Power strips are helpful when you want to use multiple outlets at once. However, they can overload your electrical system and cause your panel to break down.
