Tripping Breakers

It’s common to have a thrown breaker now and then. But if your breakers regularly cause you problems, give us a call. Circuit breakers help protect your home from potentially harmful power surges, so tripping breakers mean your electrical system needs inspection and maintenance.

Rising Utilities

If your utility bills keep increasing and you don't know why, your home’s wiring could be to blame. Faulty or damaged wiring can cause inefficiency, resulting in steeper bills. A professional electrical inspection can identify the cause and help find a solution.

Electric Shocks

There’s no such thing as a small electrical shock! That’s because any shock, no matter how minor or infrequent, is cause for alarm. If you’ve been shocked or thrown the breaker to the circuit, unplug the appliance and call Thomas Edison. We’ll check whether your appliances are grounded and offer guidance on next steps.

Electrical Surges

Defective appliances, faulty wiring, and lightning strikes can all cause electrical surges. If you’re experiencing these, schedule a visit from Thomas Edison today. Electrical troubleshooting can help protect your devices and appliances by assessing the need for surge protection. 

Frequent Bulb Burnout

All bulbs eventually burn out. But if yours are burning out faster and more frequently, there could be an underlying issue. Bad wiring or poor electrical connections might be the root cause of unusually frequent bulb burnout in your home.
