Servicing All Areas of Spring Branch
Spring Branch comprises a varied mix of historic ranch homes and brand new developments built within the last few years. This means that Spring Branch homes may be coming upon their first electrical inspection, or perhaps an entire electrical overhaul. Even in the newer homes, it’s highly suggested that you inspect your wiring every few years. For the older homes, however, your electrical system may be outdated and could be in need of an entire overhaul to keep everything running smoothly and safely.
Notice: If you are experiencing smoke, sparks, or fire caused by your electrical system, immediately call your electrical provider to turn off your home’s electricity. Contact the Spring Branch Fire Department via 9-1-1 dispatch to extinguish any fires before calling John Moore.

Breaker Panel Repair in Spring Branch
All electrical activity in your home begins at the breaker panel (also sometimes referred to as a distribution panel, electrical panel, or breaker box). This box distributes power to all the electrical conveniences in your home. In some homes, the breaker panels is mounted on an external wall. But in most homes, the breaker panel can be found in a guest bedroom, closet, or the attic. Should there be a malfunction or surge, modern breaker boxes have a safety feature that cuts off electricity to the area drawing the excess power to prevent overheating, sparks, or fire. However, older panels may not include this important safety feature, which is why you should check to see if your panel is outdated or has been recalled. If your distribution panel is outdated, you should have it replaced with a new, safe panel as soon as possible.
It’s important to keep up with your breaker panel to be sure that everything is working properly. While it is completely okay for a homeowner to flip a breaker back on when there has been a power surge, for your safety we ask that you please leave all serious work and inspection to a licensed and insured professional electrician. As panels age, they can deteriorate due to nibbling pests and insects, or from something as simple as wear and tear brought on by power surges through the years. If you see black marks on your panel or notice that a circuit won’t reset, it may be time for an inspection.
If it looks like it’s time to inspect your panel, call 713-730-2525 to schedule an appointment with a licensed John Moore electrician.
Rewiring Homes in Spring Branch
Hidden behind your home’s walls are trails of wires running power from your breaker panel to every outlet, light, and appliance in your home. These wires ought to be made of copper, insulated with PVC plastic. While we use copper and PVC in modern wiring practices, older wiring systems may use aluminum in place of copper with a type of rubber or plastic for insulation. Copper provides the necessary electrical resistance to prevent wires from overheating, whereas aluminum wires can overheat and potentially melt their plastic insulation, hence the switchover to copper. Older wiring made of aluminum and plastic can be found in pre-1990s construction. The plastic or rubber wire insulation is known to brittle over time, leading to exposed wires that can touch one another and spark a fire. If your home is more than 30 years old and uses its original wiring system, you may want to upgrade to newer, safer wires.
Some indicators of wiring issues in homes both new and old include flickering lights, switches and outlets that don’t work, or in some cases even the smell of smoke or a humming sound coming from your walls. If you notice any of these signs, call a licensed electrician to inspect your electrical system and provide you with the appropriate repair.
