How do I protect my food during a electrical outage and how long will my food last when I experience an outage?

To protect your food, keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. If you keep the door closed, food will stay frozen for 36 hours or more in a fully-loaded freezer.

What are power surges?

A power surge is a voltage spike, which occurs when something or an event interferes with the normal flow of electricity (lightning, fallen tree limbs, solar and wind storms). Occasionally, a surge can cause damage to electrical equipment, especially sensitive equipment such as stereos, TVs, and computers. Use a good-quality surge protection equipment for all sensitive electronic equipment, or consider getting whole house protection to safeguard all of your equipment.

When do I need a dedicated circuit?

This need usually arises when a new appliance is added or a new piece of equipment is installed.

How much do dedicated circuits cost?

Each situation is different and depends on the location of your main electrical panel and the place you require the additional power. Contact us, we will be happy to give you a free estimate.

What about my computers, do I need an additional circuit for this?

In most cases no, however if you have numerous computers in your home it is possible, because of the additional power load. Always use a surge suppressor with computers or any other sensitive electronic equipment.

What about sub-panels?

Yes, when the existing main panel is being replaced, we will install sub-panels to gain more spaces for additional circuit breakers this is a more cost effective solution.

Why do lights flicker? Is this okay?

Lights flicker when there is a sudden change in the power level supplied to your home. Rarely this happens during a strong storm, especially when overhead wires (on poles) power your home. Also, light flickers when a large load powers on, such as air conditioner or portable heater. In this case, it is advisable to contact a licensed electrician to check the circuits and rewire if necessary. Contact us we will be happy to give you a free estimate.

Who is responsible for trimming a tree on my property that has grown into the APS power lines?

Wires that are directly attached to the customer’s houses (loop wires) are only trimmed as required when the utility crews are doing routine tree trimming (contact them, if needed sooner). Trees that do not or will not interfere with overhead equipment are not trimmed by utility crews. It is the responsibility of the property owner to prune and maintain trees that are not near the loop wires.

If part of my house is without electricity, when should I call an electrician?

From the service panel, electricity is routed through individual circuits to different parts of the house, protected by a circuit breaker or fuse. When you have power to only some parts of your home, but not others, the first thing you should check is whether a circuit breaker has tripped or a fuse is blown. If your breakers or fuses are okay, there may be another cause.

If one of the service wires breaks or become damaged, you may only have power in some circuits. Heavy-duty electric appliances such as air conditioners and hot water heaters may not operate. Seek help from a qualified electrician, contact us, we will be happy to give you a free estimate.

If there is no power coming in from the service panel, call your utility company. The problem is most likely related to the wires serving your house.

Which way should my ceiling fans spin?

In the winter time it is recommended that your fans push the air down or spin counter clockwise. Because warmer air rises you will want to push that air into the living area. The opposite would apply in the summertime with your ceiling fans spinning clockwise pulling the lower and cooler air upwards.

Do you replace main electrical service panels?

Yes, but we first inspect the existing main electrical panel, in some cases it can be updated with new parts, which saves you money.
