Call on John Moore for a Safer, Energy Efficient Electrical System

Serving La Porte homes since 1965, John Moore has seen the area grow into the post-boom coastal town it is today. We’ve seen our fair share of electrical problems in La Porte homes: switches and light fixtures that don’t work, blown circuit breakers, outdated knob-and-tube wiring, and power surges caused by appliances and other electronics drawing too much electricity. Whether your home was built during the Sylvan Beach heyday or during its recent revitalization, it’s important to have your home’s electrical system regularly inspected by a licensed electrician at least once a year. You should also call a licensed electrician if you notice any issues with your home’s electrical system before they cause major problems for you and your home.

Notice: If you are dealing with an electrical emergency- smoking outlets, fire, etc.- contact your electrical company immediately to shut power off to your home and call La Porte emergency services via 9-1-1 dispatch to put out any fires before calling John Moore.

Breaker Panel Inspection and Repairs in La Porte, Texas

Your breaker panel (also commonly referred to as a distribution panel or circuit box) is the central hub of all electrical activity in your home. Electrical providers recommend that you have your panel inspected every few years, specially if your home was built before 1990. John Moore offers an electrical panel inspection and tune-up where one of our licensed electricians will test all the circuits of your panel, make sure that it is grounded correctly, and confirm that it sends the correct amount of power to all areas of your home. If we do notice that your panel’s circuits are shorting or that your panel is outdated, we will recommend the necessary repair and replacement options to ensure your home’s electrical system works as it should.

Your breaker panel may be located in a guest bedroom, attic, closet, or exterior wall. If you notice that your panel appears on this list of outdated panels, then we highly recommend replacing it with a new, safe panel as soon as possible. New or up-to-date breaker boxes will cut off power to outlets or appliances drawing dangerous amounts of power, but old or out-of-date boxes may lack this safety feature, which could possibly lead to an electrical fire.

Rewiring La Porte Homes to be Safer and More Energy Efficient

Your home’s electrical wiring system is just as vital to your home’s electricity usage as the breaker panel. Contemporary electrical wires installed in most homes after the 1990s are made of copper and insulated with PVC plastic. The copper wire functions as a conductor, but also provides enough resistance to ensure that your wires don’t overheat. The PVC plastic is more durable than previous rubber insulators and prevents live wires from coming into contact with other conductors. Older homes built before the 70s may have a wiring system that relies on aluminum, which is known to overheat and melt insulation, which, in extreme cases, can start fires inside the walls of homes. Even in less extreme cases, the deterioration of the insulator could lead to sparks and smoke. Likewise, wiring systems built before the 90s utilized a different kind of plastic insulation that is known to brittle over time, especially in Houston’s subtropical climate. If you live in an older home with its original wiring system still intact, you may want to call John Moore for a wiring inspection to ensure that your system is safe.

If you notice flickering lights, outlets that don’t work, smell smoke or hear a buzzing sound coming from behind your walls, you may have an issue with your electrical system, like an exposed wire. Even if your home is new, we recommend having your wiring inspected every few years because even if age hasn’t set in, rodents are known to chew through wires and their insulation, which could lead to many of the same issues presented by deteriorated electrical insulation. If we notice that your home has rodents in addition to wiring malfunctions, we will refer our pest control team to rid your home of any rodents so that the same problem doesn’t happen again.
