Reasons Your Electricity May Fail

Most of the time you go about your day not giving the power in your home or business a second thought. Generally, the electricity flows without incidence unless there is a natural disturbance like a storm or an earthquake that causes the power to go out temporarily. However, there are other reasons why you may struggle with inconsistent power. Here are just a few of the more common reasons:

Insufficient Power Supply: The average home (2000 square feet or less) requires a 200-amp breaker to safely provide sufficient electricity to power the home and all its various components. Smaller homes or buildings may be able to get away with half that power. When additions or renovations are made, sometimes the available power is not enough to support those changes. In cases like these, you may need to install a sub panel to compensate for the increased square footage and power usage.

Old Wiring: Homes built in the mid-20th century may have old wiring that has not held up well to the wear and tear that comes with years of usage. This wiring may not be able to deliver power and complete connections. In some cases, it may even be a potential fire hazard.

Over Usage: Although you may think that power strip you have your television, DVR, Blu-Ray player, iPad charger, and speakers plugged into is protecting your appliances that may not be the case. With our reliance on technology comes an increased need for outlets. Plugging too many devices into a single outlet even while using a power strip can put a strain on your system.

Fixing Electrical Panel Problems

Most electrical panels can be solved by making adjustments to the main electrical panel. This panel is found in the basement or garage in most homes. In commercial buildings, there is usually a similarly dedicated spot. If you’re having problems with electrical performance in your home, we’ll send a Santa Monica electrician to your home to look at your electrical panel. The problem may be something as simple as a flipped switch or you may need to consider replacing or upgrading the panel.

No matter what the problem may be, we promise to provide you with excellent service from start to finish that is always budget-friendly and exceeds industry standards. Call us today and we’ll send a technician to your home or place of business today for a complete inspection and analysis of your electrical system.
