Providing Service to New and Old West University Homes
West University is the site of both beautiful historically-registered turn-of-the-century homes and elegant, newly-designed homes alike. This means that West University homeowners may be coming upon their first electrical inspection, or perhaps an entire electrical overhaul. It’s recommended that you have your electrical system inspected every few years, even if your home was only recently built. Many homes in West University might still rely on outdated wiring systems and breaker panels if built prior to the 1980s. These outdated wiring systems and electrical panels are more likely to overheat and cause electrical damage or even fires in your home. What could seem like a small electrical malfunction like a flickering light or outlet that doesn’t work could be a sign that there is a larger problem coming down the line.
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 West University Place Fire Department via 9-1-1 dispatch to extinguish any fires before calling John Moore.

Breaker Panel Inspection & Repair Services in West University
One of the most integral parts of your home’s electrical system is the breaker panel (also sometimes referred to as a distribution panel, electrical panel, or breaker box). This panel is the hub of all electrical activity in your home. You may find it mounted on an external wall outside the home, but in most homes it will be located in a guest bedroom, closet, or attic. The function of the breaker panel is to distribute electricity throughout your home to each socket, light, and appliance as you use them. Should there be a malfunction or a power surge, modern breaker boxes are equipped with a safety feature that cuts off electricity to the problem area to prevent overheating, sparks, or fire.
Older panels, however, may not include this important safety feature, which is why you should check to see if your panel is outdated or has been recalled. If your distribution panel is outdated, you should have it replaced with a new, safe panel as soon as possible. As panels age, they can deteriorate either by way of pests and rodents causing damage, or simply from the wear and tear of 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.
To have a licensed John Moore electrician inspect your breaker panel, call 713-730-2525.
Up-to-Code Wiring Repairs and Upgrades in West University
Wiring must be insulated to prevent the live wires from coming in contact with each other or another conductor, which could cause sparks, possibly leading to a fire. Newer wiring systems are made of copper wires insulated with a sturdy PVC. Older wiring insulation was typically made of rubber, which is now known to grow brittle over time, especially in West University’s warm, humid conditions. And, unfortunately, even new wiring isn’t immune to pests.
Older wiring methods found in some of West University’s more historic homes built before 1970 may be made of aluminum wire, insulated by the rubber coating mentioned above, which deteriorates over time, leading to exposed wires. Another issue with out-of-date wiring systems is that when powering modern appliances, the aluminum wires may overheat, which could melt insulation and cause sparks and fires behind the walls of your home. Flickering lights or lights that don’t work may be signs of faulty wiring. If you have two-prong, ungrounded outlets in your home, you should have your wiring and electrical system upgraded to a newer, safer, more efficient system as soon as possible.
