Understand Electrician Levels
There are four distinct electrician levels.
This is an electrician who is still learning the trade. He or she cannot work unsupervised. After two years of training and passing a state exam, the apprentice becomes a wireman.
An electrician at this level has two years of training and has passed a state exam. He or she can work unsupervised on residential projects.
The journeyman electrician is above the wireman and can work unsupervised on both residential and commercial projects.
The Master electrician is the highest level there is. This person has at least seven years of experience under their belt.
Brushy Creek, TX, Abacus Electrician Services
New Construction Wiring
Abacus licensed electricians install wiring in new houses and commercial buildings. We cooperate with general contractors to complete the work in a timely and safe manner.
Electrical Inspections & Repairs, Brushy Creek
We recommend annual inspections of Brushy Creek home and business wiring systems. Our inspections reveal problem areas such as faulty wiring and overloaded circuits. Once our technicians complete an inspection, we issue a report to the homeowner with recommendations.
Annual inspections ensure that homes and buildings in Brushy Creek stay safe.
Building and Whole House Rewiring
Some older Brushy Creek homes must be partially or completely rewired, especially if they’re occupied by large families. The reason is that older homes’ wiring systems were not designed to accommodate all the devices and appliances of today’s families. A system with many items plugged in and drawing power can get overloaded.
Signs that an electrical system is being stressed include lights that go dim and flicker, plugged-in cords that feel warm or hot, outlets that produce sizzling or buzzing sounds, and breakers that continually trip. Call Abacus for an inspection and power audit to see if your Brushy Creek home needs rewiring.
Outlet and Switch Installation
Abacus technicians install outlets and switches in new construction projects, room additions, and home and building upgrades.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets (GFCI) are designed to instantly turn off current when they detect that power is flowing through the wrong channels. This is a safety feature designed to keep people from getting electrocuted. GFCI outlets are usually installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, plus garages and porches.
Brushy Creek, TX, Electrical Panel Upgrades and Replacements
Electrical panels, also called breaker boxes, sometimes need upgrading or replacing for the same reason as mentioned above under Whole House Rewiring. Older homes with electrical systems that are overloaded have breakers that trip often. The breakers trip because they sense that circuits are experiencing dangerously high demand. Old and worn-out breakers sometimes malfunction and need replacing.
Fixture Installation (Lights and Fans)
Abacus electricians in Brushy Creek install all kinds of fixtures and fans. Do you need ceiling lights, recessed lights, can lights, track lights, chandeliers, or sconces? Call Abacus electrical services. We install all residential and commercial lighting systems.
Exterior Security Lighting
Need to beef up the security around your Brushy Creek home or business? Consider adding more lighting to deter intruders. We install floodlights, motion-activated lights, and outbuilding lights.
Patio, Walkway, & Yard Lighting
Landscape lighting improves the nighttime look of a house, building, and yard. Ground lights, spotlights, path lights, and lanterns cast pools and rays of illumination that create striking looks after dark. Besides boosting curb appeal, walkway and patio lighting also help people see where they’re going and reduce the chance of falling accidents.
Appliance Wiring (Dedicated Circuits) in Brushy Creek
Many larger appliances require the installation of a dedicated circuit that supports the appliance’s power draw. Abacus electricians understand how to complete a dedicated circuit installation for residential or commercial needs.
The most common appliances that need their own circuit include dishwashers, refrigerators, electric ranges, microwaves, wall ovens, washers, dryers, furnaces, water heaters, a/c units, saunas, and garage door openers.
Brushy Creek Home Generator Installation
If the power goes out in your Brushy Creek, TX, home, are you set up for minimal impact? That is, can you still run important appliances and devices? If you work from home, will a loss of power stop your ability to work? Consider having an Abacus licensed electrician install a standby generator at your home. A standby generator springs into action instantly when it detects a power failure. A small generator will keep a few appliances running; a large generator will support more appliances and devices.
An arc-fault breaker is technically called an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter. This kind of circuit breaker contains advanced electronic sensors that detect conditions in which unintended and potentially dangerous arcing could occur. Loose wiring is one such condition. When an arc-fault breaker senses a vulnerable condition or environment, it turns the power off. Abacus electricians install AFCI breakers.
