We all depend on electricity, however, there are many misconceptions that can make matters more complicated when you experience an electrical issue at your home or business.
Our Sioux Falls electricians have answered some of our most frequently asked questions to help streamline the whole process. Read below!
Electricity can be dangerous and potentially fatal without the proper training and experience. Under no circumstances should you ever attempt to conduct your own electrical work. Even if it’s just a small problem, unqualified repairs won’t meet safety standards and could sow the seeds of more serious problems down the line.
If you suspect there are problems with any electrical system powering your property, call Action Electric for a proper assessment right away.
Regular inspections, troubleshooting, and routine maintenance can help to reduce the need for major electrical work. Some reasons to contact a Sioux Falls electrical professional include:
Doing electrical work on your own may seem like a good way to save money but it presents the risk of code violations and the potential for fires, electrocution, shock, bodily harm and even death. Protect the health of your employees and investment by seeking out assistance from an experienced professional.
Furthermore, if you do your own electrical work and it causes a fire or another type of injury, you will be liable for the damages. It’s not worth the risk when Action Electric's excellent electricians are only a phone call away.
Figuring out the electrical loads of homes and commercial buildings are essential. And to determine the size of electrical panel involves an audit of appliances and technology. Your circuits should only be loaded up to 80% of the total circuit capabilities. So, if you have a 15-amp circuit, the safe operating amperage would be no greater than 12 amps.
The grade of electrical outlets you will need will depends directly on what is being plugged into them. These range from standard grade to general use, hospital grade, federal grade, and water safe grounded receptacles.
A surge protector is designed to save electrical equipment from high voltage surges of power that are often the result of a sudden change to an electrical circuit.
We recommend surge protection in all commercial applications to prolong the lifetime of your equipment, as well as to protect computer and telecommunication systems from losing data or becoming damaged by a sudden jolt of power.
A hot breaker panel is a sign over overloading and presents a major risk for fire and other possible damage. You should call a commercial electrician right away for further instructions.
Most light switches can be changes to a dimmer switch. To do this we will inspect your current fixtures and infrastructure to make sure it will support a dimmer, or suggest re-wiring options to achieve the desired goal.
Your property may need to be rewired if you are operating in an older building that has aluminum or knot and tube wiring, or if you intend to expand, install, or updates appliances and fixtures that will require a larger load running through your system.
It is sometimes but not always necessary to leave your property while it is being re-wired. We offer flexible scheduling to make re-wiring as complementary to your agenda as possible. Ask us for more details on how we can make this work for you.
We prioritize safety and customer satisfaction above all. Our professional and skilled electricians are always available to respond to electrical emergencies promptly, day or night. Like with any electrical work we do, we begin by assessing the extent of the problem, and then breakdown exactly how we will fix it, how long it will take, and the cost. We are transparent and upfront about our pricing so there are no surprises. If you have any questions or concerns, we will be happy to address them.
