Do You Know the Types of Licensed Electricians?
There are four licensing levels for electricians.
Level One: The Apprentice
The Apprentice is the electrician who is starting out in the trade. He or she spends two years learning the trade from a more experienced electrician, takes a state exam, and then advances to the level of Wireman.
Level Two: The Wireman
The Wireman has been in the electrical services field for at least two years and has passed a first-level licensing exam. He or she is permitted to work unsupervised on a residential project.
Level Three: The Journeyman
The Journeyman has enough experience and credentials to work unsupervised on both residential and commercial projects.
Level Four: The Master
The Master electrician is at the top of the totem pole. He or she has acquired at least seven years of experience in the field and supervises all other levels of electrician.

Electrical Inspections & Audits
Like all structural systems in a house or building, the electrical system should be inspected annually. Call an Abacus licensed electrician for a general inspection to identify problem areas that have developed. Faulty wiring, loose wiring, and overloaded circuits are examples of issues that an inspection will reveal.
Once an Abacus technician completes an inspection, he or she will issue a report with recommendations. Follow up with recommended actions to keep your wiring system robust and safe.
Home and Building Rewiring Cedar Park, TX
Was your home built before the 1990s? Cedar Park homes that are more than 30 years old sometimes need whole-house rewiring. This is because older homes were not built to accommodate all the devices and appliances used by today’s modern families. Wiring systems can get overloaded by the demand for power and cannot keep up.
Not sure if your home’s wiring system is getting overloaded? Look for these signs: lights that flicker and dim, outlets that buzz or sizzle, breakers that trip often, and plugged-in cords that feel warm or hot to the touch. Call Abacus for an inspection. Our licensed electricians will examine your electrical system and see if it needs bolstering or replacing.
Light Switches and Outlets
Abacus electricians install switches, outlets, and receptacles in Cedar Park homes and businesses—in new construction projects and existing structures.

Electrical Panel (Breaker Box) Repairs, Upgrades, & Replacements
Cedar Park electrical panels sometimes need upgrading or replacing if they are old or deteriorated, or if the household’s demand for power exceeds the capacity of the breaker box. How do you know if your breaker box needs attention? If the breakers are constantly tripping, that’s the sign. Breakers trip when there’s a problem with the current—usually when a circuit is overloaded by too many things plugged into outlets. Sometimes replacing breakers will solve the problem. Sometimes the whole panel needs to be replaced with a new one.
Lights, Fans, and Fixture Installation
What fixtures do you need to have installed in your Cedar Park home or business? Call an Abacus electrician. We install ceiling lights, track lights, can lights, recessed lights, sconces, chandeliers, and specialty lights.
GFCI Outlets Cedar Park, TX
This type of outlet is designed to immediately shut off current flow when it detects voltage going through improper channels—such as a person or through water. Its ability to turn off power flow automatically saves people from getting electrocuted. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets are usually installed in rooms where water or moisture is present, such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and garages.
Yard, Path, and Patio Lighting
Outdoor lighting that features landscaping makes a significant difference in how a Cedar Park, TX, home or building looks at night. We install ground lights, spotlights, pathway lights, and lanterns to provide various kinds of illumination. Not only does outdoor lighting add to a home’s curb appeal, but it also helps to keep people safe. When they can see where they’re going, they are less likely to trip and fall.
Outdoor Security Lighting Cedar Park, TX
Ramp up the security of your home or building with strategic outdoor lighting. Intruders will be less likely to try to access a property that is lit up with motion-activated lights, floodlights, lampposts, and outbuilding lights.
Appliance Circuit Wiring
If you purchased a larger appliance and are ready to install it, understand that it may require a dedicated circuit. Why? This is because if you plug a large appliance into an existing circuit, it will draw more power than the circuit is designed to handle. The power flow will simply turn off and nothing plugged into that circuit will work. Many appliances require their own dedicated circuit. Abacus electricians install appliance circuits in Cedar Park homes and buildings.
Standby Generator Installation
If the power goes out, all plugged-in appliances and devices will stop working. Consider installing a backup generator that will kick in immediately if the main power source fails. Back-up generators come in varied sizes. The larger the generator, the more appliances it will run.
