Electrical Inspection and Troubleshooting in White Plains, New York

When your electrical system is working correctly, you hardly notice it at all. As long as it keeps your appliances running, your electronics charged, and your lights on, most times you won’t give your electrical system a second thought.

That’s why it’s important to have an electrician you can trust, like the technicians at Red Star Electric. Our inspection and troubleshooting services will make sure your electrical system continually provides you with a safe, steady supply of power. With Red Star Electric, you can rest assured that your services will be performed by a licensed and insured electrician, who will go over your system in detail to make sure they don’t miss even the smallest of problems.

Electrical Troubleshooting

Your home’s electrical system is a complex grid of wiring, with a number of safety devices, outlets, and other components, all designed to make sure your power supply remains safe and constant. But that also means there’s a lot of places where the system can have problems. Here are some of the more common issues customers call us about:

  • Broken outlets or switches
  • Flickering lights
  • Overloaded circuits
  • Problems with breaker panel or fuse box
  • Recurring power surges
  • Popping or exploding light bulbs
  • Redundant wiring
  • Surprisingly high electric bills

There could be a number of reasons why you might be experiencing any of the above issues. With our team of trained and experienced electricians, we can look closely into your system to find all of the underlying issues that may be hurting the performance of your power supply. Our goal isn’t just to fix the surface problem; we want to repair your electrical system for good.

Once we trace the problem, your electrician will help you formulate a plan for getting your electrical system back online. From a minor electrical installation, such as a new outlet, to a major overhaul of your electrical panel, our technicians can handle any job they come across, so you know you’re getting the best service possible.

Electrical Inspection

Keeping your electrical system in top shape requires regular maintenance. Over time, parts can wear out, connections can come loose, and accidental damage from everyday use can lead to your electrical system developing problems. When you have an electrician perform an electrical inspection, you’re doing more than just taking a look at your system—you’re protecting your investment.

While having your system inspected regularly is always a good idea, it’s especially important when you’re buying or renovating a home, adding a major appliance or other electrical installation, or when your home is more than 40 years old. These homes are at greater risk of developing major problems, including an elevated risk of fire.

Our electricians are trained to look closely at your electrical system, from the main supply line to the smallest details. Their point-by-point inspection contains a number of steps, including:

  • Inspect and validate surge protection
  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Examine outdoor electrical systems
  • Check condition of all switches and outlets
  • Eliminate any shock hazards
  • Inspect any arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) to ensure proper function
  • Check proper wattage on all bulbs
  • Examine electrical panel for proper operation and labeling

By the time our technicians are done with your inspection, you can be sure that all of your parts are in working order, that all connections are tight, and that every switch and outlet is working correctly.

An electrical inspection has a number of benefits. Regular inspections help you detect developing problems before they can become more significant, protecting your home and saving you money on repairs. You’ll usually end up saving money on your energy bills, too, since an electrical inspection will help improve your home’s energy efficiency. And because our technicians are constantly trained on the latest, most up-to-date building codes, they’ll make sure that your building meets or exceeds current regulations.
