There are several ways to lower the energy bill in your home or office building, all requiring you to change your day-to-day habits. Some small changes that could impact your bill include: switch to energy-efficient light bulbs, turn off/unplug appliances not in use, program your thermostat to lower when not home, replace appliances 15+ years old, install timers on outdoor lighting and more.

Damaged outlets are a hazard to your home or office and should be replaced or repaired immediately. A few signs to tell if your outlets are damaged include buzzing sound when appliances plugged in, sparking, burn marks or wires are loose inside the outlet. Outlets displaying these types of damages are a fire hazard. Call EP Electric LLP immediately to schedule a replacement service.

Anytime you suspect something is wrong with your electrical wiring, call EP Electric LLC for an inspection. You can never be too careful when it comes to your home or office’s electric.

A full home or building inspection by a professional electrician should be done every 5 years. This will ensure your panel and wiring can support the electric load running to them, or if you’ll need a panel upgrade. We’ll also check for wire damages, blown fuses and more.

A tripped breaker is a fairly common electrical issue and one that can easily be fixed on your own. First, find your circuit breaker panel and locate the tripped breaker. The tripped one will be switched to “off” and not aligned with the other breakers. Carefully reset the breaker back to “on” – if you hear a clicking noise then it is in its proper position.

If the electric does not come back on or if you have continued problems with the breaker tripping, call us today for an electric panel diagnostic appointment.

A flickering light bulb may be something as simple as the light bulb going bad or it could be the first sign of an electrical problem. If you’ve replaced the bulb a few times, but still seeming the same problem, call EP Electric LLC today for an inspection.

In a word: No. Unless you are a licensed electrician you should never attempt your own repairs no matter how many DIY videos you watch. Electricity is extremely dangerous. Attempting repairs on your own can lead to serious injury and further costly damage you’ll have to pay our professionals to come in and fix.
