Why Top-Quality Electrical Services Matters to Sherwood Forest Homeowners
With many older and newly renovated homes, it’s especially important to make sure that your electrical system is working as it should to prevent the possibility of an electrical mishap. We have found that many older Sherwood Forest homes still rely on outdated wiring systems and electrical panels that are more likely to overheat and cause electrical damage or fires in your home than newer electrical systems. If you are considering renovation work that includes the installation of contemporary lighting or appliances, we recommend that you have your electrical system evaluated to ensure that it is up-to-code. Even what could seem like a small electrical malfunction like a flickering light or an outlet could lead to a major electrical emergency if gone unchecked.
Notice: If you are currently dealing with a sparking live wire, humming noise from your walls, or a fire caused by your electrical system, immediately call your electrical provider and ask them turn off your home’s electricity. Call the Sherwood Forest Fire Department via 9-1-1 dispatch to extinguish any fires before calling John Moore.

Breaker Panel Experts in Sherwood Forest
Your breaker panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system. Sometimes, it is also referred to as a distribution panel, electrical panel, or breaker box. Your breaker panel distributes all of the electricity to the appropriate appliance, light fixture, or outlet as you use them. Breaker panels also detect when unsafe amounts of electricity are being pulled from a specific appliance or outlet and shut power off to that area of the home. Older panels may not include this important safety feature, which is why you should check to see if your panel is outdated or has been recalled.
Like anything else, breaker boxes age. As time goes by, you may find that pests or frequent power surges have lead to a circuit malfunction. In some cases, either of these issues could even cause a fuse to explode within your breaker box. If you notice that a circuit won’t reset on your breaker panel or black marks on the panel itself, you should have your electrical panel inspected by a licensed electrician who can then make any necessary replacements. Even if you don’t notice any major issues, we recommend that you have your panel inspected every few years to ensure that your panel’s safety functions work as they should.

Sherwood Forest Rewiring Services
Within the walls of your home, your electrical wires provide power to every electrical component in your home. Contemporary electrical wires are made of copper and are insulated with PVC. It’s not uncommon to find electrical wires made of aluminum with a cheaper plastic insulator in homes built before the 1990s, which is the case for many Sherwood Forest homes.
The problem with these older wiring systems is that aluminum has less electrical resistance, meaning it is more likely to overheat and potentially melt the insulation it’s inside of. In addition to this danger, non-PVC insulators may brittle and crumble off of the wiring over time, which could expose a wire behind your walls. When exposed wires come into contact with one another, or with another conductor, it can lead to sparks and electrical fires. Like with your breaker panel, pests like mice, rats, and insects are also known to chew through wire insulation.
If you have flickering lights in your home, outlets or switches that don’t work, or if you hear a buzzing sound from behind your walls, you should call a licensed electrician to inspect your home’s wiring system.
