It can be easy to take these conveniences for granted until your home’s electrical system goes down. A circuit might trip and cut off power to an outlet or a room in your home; a pest can chew through a wire in your walls; or insulation around your wires could simply be growing old and brittle, which could potentially cause a worst-case scenarios: exposed wiring or fuses within your breaker panel that could spark and catch fire. No matter what the issue might be, you can call on John Moore’s licensed and insured electricians for an efficient and safe inspection, repair, or replacement.

Electrical Panel Inspection, Repairs, and Replacements
Your home’s electrical panel’ also commonly referred to as a breaker panel or distribution panel’ divvies up all the electricity running through your home to outlets, appliances, and lights as you use them. Two critical functions of your electrical panel are grounding any excess energy that enters into your system and turning off power to any areas in your home that are drawing unsafe amounts of electricity. If you live in a home built before the 1990s that uses its original distribution panel, you may want to check to make sure that it hasn’t been discontinued or recalled. Some older electrical panel models fail to shut off power in the case of a power surge, potentially leading to dangerous explosions or fires. If your electrical panel is outdated, call a licensed electrician as soon as possible to have it replaced with a new, safe electrical panel.
No matter how new or old your home is, it is recommended to have your electrical panel inspected every few years or before remodeling your home or adding any new appliances. One of the common issues we check for are circuits malfunctions, which can lead to a circuit that won’t reset after it trips. If you notice that a circuit in your breaker panel won’t reset, you should call a licensed electrician to replace the burnt circuit with a new one. Because of the high levels of electricity that your electrical panel handles, you should never attempt to replace any components by yourself unless you are a qualified electrician so that you don’t run the risk of electrocution.

Rewiring Richmond Services for Safety and Efficiency
Your home’s electrical wires are an important piece of the puzzle for your home’s electrical system. The breaker box can’t do it all; your wiring carries the electricity from the box to the various electrical components around your home. Modern electrical wires are made of copper wire and insulated with a durable, heat-resistant PVC plastic. The copper wire is conductive, but also provides just enough electrical resistance to ensure that your wires don’t overheat. The PVC plastic prevents the wire inside from creating sparks by coming into contact with another wire or conductive surface.
Older homes built before 1970 may have a wiring system made of aluminum wiring, which is known to overheat, melt insulation, and in some cases, start fires inside the walls of homes. In addition, wiring systems built before 1990 utilized a plastic insulation that is known to grow brittle as it ages, especially in Richmond’s summer heat. 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 outlets that don’t work, lights that flicker, or a humming sound from your walls, you may have an electrical issue that could lead to a dangerous malfunction. No matter your home’s age, pests are a sneaky problem. Mice and other rodents are known to nibble on wiring, exposing the wire beneath the insulation (or chewing through wires altogether!). 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.
