Electricity affects nearly every activity you do in your Boise, ID home. It’s next to impossible to work from home, cook, clean, or engage in your favorite leisure activities without electricity. The best way to ensure that your house’s electrical system is working properly is to schedule springtime electrical maintenance with our licensed electricians. Let’s take a look at five ways our professional electrical maintenance services can save you money this spring.
1. Avoid Costly Repairs
You’ve probably heard the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” One way to look at this expression is its impact on your budget. A small fee for electrical maintenance could save you many times that amount because it may prevent the need for a costly electrical repair in the future. It’s less expensive to repair a switch or damaged section of wiring than it is to repair damage from a short circuit or blown breaker box.
2. Prevent Appliance Malfunctions
Maintaining your electrical system could prevent a malfunction in your appliances and electronics. Nearly all Boise homeowners have one or more smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other sensitive electronics that require daily charging. These are costly to replace if a power surge or brownout affects the outlet. A damaged receptacle or switch could also ruin your kitchen appliances. Our maintenance services protect all of your electrical gadgets and home systems.
3. Reduce the Risk of HVAC Damage
Your home’s heat pump or air conditioner draws a large amount of current. If your electrical system isn’t working properly, this could result in HVAC system damage. Air conditioners, heat pumps, and other HVAC equipment are costly to repair and replace. Routine electrical maintenance ensures that your wiring, switches, and circuit breaker can safely and effectively deliver the correct amount of current to your heating and cooling system.
4. Lower Your Chance of Injuries
A malfunctioning electrical system could injure you or a household member. For example, if sparks come out of an outlet when you plug in an appliance or flip a switch, you could experience a burn. Electrical shock can also injure your body. Scheduling a springtime electrical maintenance visit could prevent a trip to urgent care or the emergency room, saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
5. Boost the Efficiency of Your Home
A well-maintained electrical system makes your house more energy-efficient. Routine maintenance, such as insulating wires and outlets, measuring voltage, current, amperage, and distribution, and checking for signs of wear and tear could lower your monthly electricity bills. A more energy-efficient home might also net you a higher sale price if you’re considering selling your property.
