Overtaxing the circuits and wiring in your Matthews home could be dangerous.
Most homes built in Matthews, North Carolina, even newer ones, often lack the circuits and wiring needed for the higher demands of today’s lifestyles. The truth is that basic code regulations have not kept up with our need for more televisions, computers, appliances, and so forth. As a result, you may be experiencing flickering lights, tripped circuit breakers, and potentially the risk of fire. At Mister Sparky by Wise Electric Control Inc., we have the solution with our services to upgrade the circuits and wiring in your home to meet your power demands.
The main way to deal with a shortage of circuits and wiring is to add additional lines, but it can also be done by upgrading the wiring itself. Sometimes it is a matter of spreading out the drain by adding outlets, especially if one outlet is getting too much use. If you find you are using a lot of power strips, you likely really need more outlets instead. Power strips are great for adding surge protection, but should never be used to overload one outlet. Speaking of surge protection, we also offer whole-house surge protection that will protect everything in your home and negate the need for surge-protecting power strips, although they are still a good idea for more sensitive items, such as computers and expensive televisions.
If you are thinking that the circuits and wiring in your home are not up for the task at hand, or if you want to be sure that your home is safe and the electrical system is not being overtaxed, give us a call. We’ll be glad to check it out and provide you with options that will make your home’s power availability everything that you need it to be, safely. No more malarkey– just call Mister Sparky!
