When to Call an Electrician

Monday, February 10th, 2020

We understand that a lot of homeowners like to handle jobs around the house on their own. We understand that it sometimes seems preferable to ignore “minor” problems than to have them addressed by trained professionals that, frankly—you’re going to have to pay! However, we also understand that the failure to work with professional electricians in New Hampshire, at the right time, can lead to dangerous situations in one’s home. And that’s not something that we can overlook.

Today, we want to talk about some of the situations in which you’ll want to call an electrician. If you think that electricians are only really here for when you need new wiring or something installed in your house, think again. There are many situations in which you should be reaching for the phone, and most certainly not your own toolbox! Be sure to reach out to us with any questions that you may have. Our electricians have the answers you need. (more…)

Why Work with Our Professional Electricians?

Monday, January 13th, 2020

outletThe age of information that we live in can be a wonderful thing. Think about this—when is the last time you had to pull over to look at a map with a tiny light in the car? Probably not recently. You just punch your destination into your smartphone and go along your way. With the amount of information that we have available to us at all times, though, comes some area for concern. For instance, some homeowners may convince themselves that a little online research qualifies them for, well—just about anything.

This, of course, is not true. Certainly not when it comes to servicing your own electrical system! No amount of online research will make you a qualified electrician! Fortunately for you, we have plenty of great electricians in Ludlow, VT, just waiting for your call. So don’t hesitate when you need electrical services of any kind. When you call upon our expertise, you can count on some outstanding benefits headed your way. (more…)

Protect Your Home and Your Family with a Generator

Monday, October 7th, 2019

generatorIt’s just barely October, and not all of you are going to want to hear this, but—winter is on its way. Winters in Vermont can be beautiful, but they are also a lot of hard work and they can be quite stressful at times. If you ask us, it pays to take any measures possible to reduce that stress in any way possible. One recommendation that we cannot make strongly enough is that you take advantage of a whole-house generator.

A whole-house generator works much the same as a portable generator in principle, but on a much larger scale. While portable generators are great for power radios and other equipment for camping trips or tailgating events, they are not going to power your entire home when the power goes out due to winter storms. A whole-house generator can do just that, though. Or, at least, it can when it is properly installed and serviced. To ensure that this is the case, schedule your whole-house generator services with our electricians in Ludlow, VT.

fanSeriously? There’s a chain right on it! Just pull the thing!

Okay, okay. Most homeowners understand how to turn on their ceiling fans. That is not the subject of today’s post, though. (However, if you were wondering, yes—there is probably a chain hanging down that you can pull!)

So if you have a ceiling fan, this post is just what you need to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your fixture.

However, we also take your safety seriously.  That is why we strongly suggest that you leave any electrical services in Springfield, VT, to the pros on our team.
