Residential Electrical Services We Offer

An electrician is a skilled tradesperson who specializes in installing, maintaining, and repairing electrical systems and wiring in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. They are trained to work with various electrical components, equipment, and systems to ensure they function safely and efficiently.

The Robison team offers a wide range of residential electrical services, including but not limited to:

  • New installations and electrical setup: Our electricians can install new electrical systems for buildings under construction or for renovations. This includes wiring, outlets, switches, and other necessary components.
  • Whole-home and partial rewiring: We can inspect existing wiring systems and perform rewiring where necessary to ensure safety and compliance with current electrical codes. This may involve replacing old or faulty wiring throughout the entire home or in specific areas.
  • Electrical panel installation and replacement: We install and replace electrical panels, also known as breaker boxes or fuse boxes, which control the distribution of electricity throughout a building. Upgrading panels may be necessary to accommodate increased electrical demand or to enhance safety.
  • Whole-house surge protection: Our team can install surge protection devices to safeguard electrical appliances and devices from damage caused by power surges. These devices help prevent costly repairs or replacements due to electrical spikes.
  • Outlet installation and repair: We install new electrical outlets and repair existing ones to ensure proper functionality and safety. This includes both standard outlets and specialized outlets such as GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) and AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) outlets.
  • Ceiling fan installation and repair: We can install, replace, or repair ceiling fans to improve air circulation and comfort in homes or commercial spaces. We ensure proper wiring and mounting to prevent accidents or malfunctions.
  • Lighting fixture installation, replacement, and repair: Our team install various types of lighting fixtures, including recessed lights, chandeliers, pendant lights, and track lighting. We also replace and repair faulty fixtures to maintain proper illumination and safety.
  • Electric vehicle charging ports: With the growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs), we are increasingly called upon to install EV charging stations at homes, businesses, and public locations. We ensure safe and efficient charging infrastructure for EV owners.
  • Generator installation, replacement, and repair: We install standby generators to provide backup power during outages or emergencies. We also replace and repair generators to ensure reliability and functionality when needed.

Whether you want to upgrade your home’s outdated electrical panel, install recessed lighting, or protect your home with a backup generator or whole-home surge protector, our licensed electricians are ready to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and safely. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we will always go above and beyond to ensure that you are completely happy with the quality of our work and the end result. 

When to Call for Professional Electrical Services 

You should always leave electrical work to the experts. Electricity can be dangerous, and inexperience is one of the leading factors in electrocutions and other electricity-related accidents.

There are several signs that it may be time to schedule professional electrical services, including: 

  • Frequent Circuit Breaker Tripping: If circuit breakers frequently trip or fuses frequently blow, it could indicate an overloaded circuit, a short circuit, or a ground fault. An electrician can identify the underlying cause and make necessary repairs or upgrades to prevent further issues.
  • Flickering or Dimming Lights: Flickering or dimming lights can indicate faulty wiring, loose connections, or overloaded circuits. An electrician can inspect the wiring and fixtures to determine the cause and address any issues to ensure consistent and safe lighting.
  • Burning Smell or Electrical Burning Odor: A burning smell near outlets, switches, or electrical appliances can indicate overheating wiring or electrical components. This could be a sign of an electrical fire hazard and should be addressed immediately by an electrician.
  • Buzzing or Humming Sounds: Unusual buzzing or humming sounds coming from electrical outlets, switches, or fixtures can indicate loose connections or faulty wiring. These issues can pose a fire risk and should be addressed promptly by a qualified electrician.
  • Warm or Hot Outlets or Switches: Outlets or switches that feel warm or hot to the touch may indicate overloaded circuits, loose connections, or faulty wiring. This can be a potential fire hazard and requires immediate attention from an electrician.
  • Sparking Outlets or Switches: Sparks or small electrical arcs when plugging in or unplugging devices can indicate loose connections or damaged wiring. This poses a fire risk and should be addressed by an electrician to prevent electrical hazards.
  • Electrical Shocks: Experiencing electrical shocks when touching switches, outlets, or appliances can indicate faulty wiring or improper grounding. This is a serious safety concern and requires immediate attention from a licensed electrician.
  • Outdated Wiring or Electrical System: If your home has outdated wiring, such as knob-and-tube wiring or aluminum wiring, or an outdated electrical system, it may pose safety risks and may not meet current electrical codes. An electrician can inspect the wiring and system and recommend necessary upgrades or replacements for safety and compliance.
  • Power Outages or Partial Power Loss: If you experience frequent power outages or partial power loss in your home, it could indicate issues with the electrical service entrance, wiring, or electrical panel. An electrician can diagnose the problem and make necessary repairs to restore power and ensure electrical safety.
  • Electrical Code Violations: If you suspect your electrical system may not meet current electrical codes or safety standards, or if you're planning renovations or additions to your home, it's advisable to consult with an electrician to ensure compliance and safety.

All of these issues indicate various problems with your electrical system, from potential power surges to loose, faulty, or exposed wiring. These and other electrical issues can be dangerous and should be addressed immediately. 

You may also wish to contact an electrician if you want to upgrade your home’s electrical system with modern, energy-saving fixtures or even whole-home rewiring. These bigger, more complex projects should always be left to a professional who can correctly and safely get the job done.
