Electrical Upgrades For Your Home
There are many homes in the larger Portland area that were built decades ago. While these properties are charming and full of character, their electrical systems were not made to handle the needs of today’s technology.
The clash between older homes and today’s electrical needs can result in power outages and even fire hazards, making electrical upgrades an important safety measure. If you frequently struggle with flickering lights, tripping breakers, and outlet problems, it’s time to call an experienced electrician.
At Roth Home, our technicians provide professional electrical upgrades to keep your home safe and up to code. Call us at 503-266-1249 to schedule service.
Electrical Panel Upgrades
When electrical panels overheat, they can start fires, resulting in catastrophic damage to your home. Although many Americans don’t know this, thousands of Zinsco, Federal Pacific, I-T-E Pushmatic, and GTE/Sylvania brand electrical panels were recalled years ago for safety defects.
Despite this recall, many houses built in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and even beyond, still have these panels installed. If your home is over 25 years old, it’s likely that you need an electrical panel replacement.
If your lights flicker when you turn on a large appliance, you may have old or loose wiring inside your walls. Faulty wiring can be inconvenient, but it’s also a hazard, as wiring problems can create sparks and even start fires. If you believe the wiring in your home is compromised, call Roth today to schedule electrical repair service. We can rewire a house or just a single room.
Outlet Upgrades & GFCI Outlet Installation
If you want to add more outlets to your home, or your existing outlets are no longer in good condition, our technicians can install brand new outlets in your walls. Safety is our number one priority, and we want your outlets to match the level of comfort you experience in the rest of your home.
Enhanced Lighting—LED, Dimmers, & More
Lighting that’s too bright or too dim can easily disrupt the mood of your home. Whether you need brighter lights or dimmer switches to tone things down, we have a variety of enhanced options to fit your needs. We also install energy-efficient lighting, like LED lights to help you save on energy costs.
Circuit Breaker & Fuse Box Upgrades
Your circuit breaker controls the flow of electricity into your home, and it can shut itself off to protect surges from damaging your electrical system. If you frequently experience blown fuses, your circuit breaker may need an update. It’s important to keep your electrical equipment in good working condition to avoid fires and other potential hazards. Whole-home surge protection is a great place to start.
Exhaust Fan Upgrades
Older exhaust fans can become loud and inefficient over time. If your current exhaust fan is failing to expel moisture and odors from the room, we have a wide range of quiet, programmable exhaust fans that are sure to make a positive difference in your home.
