Problems with Your Electricity?

You need electrical help, and that’s what we’re here for! Whether you ended up on this page because the power in your home is totally out or because you’re wanting to replace a light in your home, you’ve come to the right place.

Stuck in the Dark?

You never realize how much your family and home rely on electricity until suddenly your power goes out. Sometimes, it’s just plain annoying, but other times, it can be dangerous. Your heating and cooling system relies on power to run, and if you have children or elderly loved ones in the home, extreme temperatures can be a hazard. Not only that, but if your family needs electricity for any medical equipment, it’s vital that you keep the power on!

How to Make Sure This Blackout Is the Last

You should get a whole-home generator! These aren’t like those gas-powered portable ones you get from the hardware store (those can be dangerous, and they only power a few appliances at a time anyways). The generators we install are like personal powerplants! They can keep your HVAC system running, your wi-fi on, your medical devices powered up, and your fridge and freezer working like normal (that means no spoiled food!).

To learn more about the generators we install, check out this page.

What to Do if You Have a Power Surge

Summer storms in the Carolinas are no joke! But that’s not the only time you might experience a power surge. If you noticed the power in your home flickered for a moment, that was likely an electrical surge. While it may not seem like a big deal, these surges can fry the electrical equipment in your home, costing your family hundreds or thousands to replace things. Even if it doesn’t totally fry your appliances, gaming equipment, HVAC system, or other electrical things, surges shorten the lifespan of these items over time.

Protect the electrical equipment in your home with a whole-home surge protector! Our electrical team can install one of these right at your electrical panel to protect ALL the electrical devices in your home. No more buying expensive surge protectors just to keep a few devices safe!

Not ready for a whole-home surge protector but wanna keep your heating and cooling system safe from electrical surges? We have solutions for that, too!

What to Do if Your Outlet Isn’t Working

Is one or your electrical outlets/receptacles not working? Don’t panic, and don’t tear apart your electrical panel! Before you do anything else, check to see if your outlet has a ground fault circuit interrupter. You’ll be able to spot the little buttons labeled “test” and “reset” (these may be the same color as your outlet or they may be red and black). If the outlet isn’t working and it has those buttons, try hitting the “reset” button. If that doesn’t work, it may be time to replace the outlet. If you do that yourself, please be sure to turn off the power to that outlet before you make any changes! If you need help, give us a call!

About to Start a DIY Electrical Project? Read This First!

Did you find the dream light fixture? Or do you need to replace an outlet in your home? Any time you do electrical work in your home, it’s important to shut the power off to the lines you’ll be working with. If you don’t, it could be a fatal mistake!

A lot of times, breakers aren’t labeled correctly (or at all!). Even if you remember to turn off the breaker, are you sure it’s the right one for your project? Instead of risking your safety, give us a call so we can help keep you safe and make sure your electrical projects are done the right way!

Did You Pop a Breaker?

Sometimes, when you plug something in or turn on a device, there’s a popping sound and suddenly some of your lights or devices shut off. This is often referred to as popping a breaker. This can happen when you overload a power line in your wall.

Every power line in your house has a certain capacity for power, and if you plug in things that demand too much power, it overloads the line. The breaker then shuts off power to protect the line. This safety measure is super important because an overloaded power line can overheat and catch fire! However, even with the help of your circuit breaker cutting off power to these lines, there’s still a risk of fire if you frequently overload a power line. It’s best to either find somewhere else to plug that device in or call Morris-Jenkins!

If you need certain devices in specific spots in your home, but the outlets don’t provide enough power for all of those items at once, we can evaluate your home’s electrical setup to see what options we have for helping you out. We may be able to increase the power supply to that part of your home, or we could even run a separate line for a specific device. Just reach out to schedule a consultation!
