How Can I Save Energy in My Business?

Are you a local business owner looking to save money by reducing your energy costs? One of the best ways to save money on electricity is to ensure that you have a fully energy efficient lighting system. If you have an inefficient system in your commercial property, you can save costs through a variety of solutions, such as retrofitting your fluorescent lights and replacing old fixtures with energy efficient fixtures.

When Should I Get an Electrical Safety Inspection?

Most people really don't realize how important it is to get electrical safety inspections done periodically, especially in certain situations, like when a property is changing hands. While safety inspections usually aren't necessary on an annual basis, there are some scenarios that absolutely require an electrical safety inspection to be taken care of by knowledgeable electricians. Colorado Springs residents should note that those situations include:

  • Buying or selling a property
  • Installing a major appliance or EV charger
  • Welcoming a new household member
  • After a major renovation has been completed
  • Building code inspection is mandatory
  • It has been more than 40 years since the electrical system installation

During your electrical safety inspection, your local Colorado Springs electricians will take the time to inspect and assess components of your electrical system, such as:

  • Wall switches and outlets
  • Light bulb wattage
  • Possible fire and electrocution hazards
  • AFCI and GFCI outlet operation
  • Confirmation of grounding system
  • Condition of electrical panel
  • Testing carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms
  • Condition and installation of wiring

After we have finished a careful safety check of all components of your electrical system by our reliable electricians, Colorado Springs homeowners can rely on us to present them with a detailed report that prioritizes our recommendations for getting their system in a functional, safe condition. We'll also take the time to offer clear explanations of our findings and address any questions or concerns you may have so you can make an educated decision about what's best for your household and property. 

Can an Electrician Install an EV Charger?

Yes. Whether you’re an electric vehicle owner and you need installation service for your private residence, or you’re a business owner, and you want to offer EV charging stations for your guests and visitors, our team can provide the services you need from qualified electricians. Colorado Springs residents can count on us to complete installation for a wide selection of advanced EV chargers. Our team has a full range of EVSE solutions to meet your needs for installation and other services. We’ll help you determine which type of EV charger will work best for your needs and complete any additional upgrades that may be necessary to facilitate EVSE installation. 

Does My Old Electrical Panel Need to Be Upgraded?

When you say "old," do you mean older than about 25 years? If so, it's likely time for an electrical panel upgrade by our professional electricians. Colorado Springs homes often have an electrical panel that is much, much older than 25 years, and there's no doubt in that case that it does need to be replaced with a newer model.

Are you wondering if you really need an electrical panel upgrade right now, or if your old panel can hang in there for a few more years? Your electrical panel controls your entire electrical system, so it's really important that it be in good condition so it can function safely. Here are some of the biggest warning signs that it's time to hire skilled Colorado Springs electricians to handle an electrical panel upgrade:

  • Lights flicker when you turn on an appliance because of the increased demand for electricity
  • If you try to use more than one appliance at a time, a circuit breaker trips
  • Breakers trip often for no obvious reason
  • Circuit breaker box feels warm or hot to the touch
  • Scorch marks, bubbling paint or other signs of heat damage on electrical panel
  • Strange sounds coming from the panel box, like hissing, crackling or buzzing
  • Odors of burning metal or melting plastic
  • Breaker box is giving off visible sparks
  • Working on a remodel that involves adding a lot of lighting or power-drawing appliances
  • Power company is recommending an electrical panel upgrade

Many people don't think of this, but it's also a good idea to get an electrical panel upgrade if you are welcoming a new family member into your home. That could be a friend or relative who is moving into your house, or it could be the arrival of a bouncing new baby. It may be surprising that a tiny baby could increase the demand for electricity in your household, but they require more resources than you may suspect, and the additional strain can be too much for an older or deteriorating electrical panel.

Is My Colorado Springs Home Vulnerable to Power Surges?

Suppose your home is not equipped with preventative measures like surge protectors. In that case, it’s more vulnerable than the average Colorado Springs house to power surges that could cause serious damage to computers, televisions and other expensive electronic equipment. But it's worth noting that every home in the state of Colorado does have some level of increased vulnerability to power surges that are caused by lightning flashes because Colorado is more susceptible to lightning damage than many other places.

In fact, Colorado is ranked 19th in the nation for lightning flashes, which may not sound that bad but does mean Colorado homes are more likely than buildings in most other states to be affected by power surges. Our qualified electricians in Colorado Springs, CO can help you reduce the risk with whole house surge protector installation services.
