Outlets and switches are the mechanisms that allow us to access the power running through our home’s wiring system. Because of their constant use, they can become damaged over time or may need to be updated for convenience or in the case of a remodel.
Some other indicators an outlet replacement is needed include:
Loose Outlets: Outlets should not move when appliance plugs are inserted or removed. The movement that can occur can damage the outlet and the wiring behind the wall. Over time, the wiring can become stressed and present a fire hazard.
Bad GFCI: GFCI outlets are the special outlets located near water sources and outdoors. They are a safety feature that is designed to prevent electric shock in case water comes in contact with an appliance. GFCIs that continually trip, such as outlets that are improperly sealed outside, may need to be replaced if they cannot be reset.
Remodel or Repainting: A quick way to freshen up a space is to add a new coat of paint and update the color of your outlets, switches and wall plates. Outlets, switches and wall plates can be easily changed and will add a new look to your space while also checking the electrical system for safety issues.
If you need help troubleshooting or changing your outlets or GFCIs and live in the Wendell, ID area, give Magic Electric, Plumbing, Heating + Air a call. With our Hassle-Free scheduling, we can accommodate your needs.
Does Your Electrical Panel Need Service?
Breaker box. Service panel. Fuse box. Whatever name it goes by, you probably don’t think about it unless there is a problem. A breaker panel is the main point of service between your home and the electrical grid. Panels can be located in your garage, basement, kitchen pantry or on the outside of your home. The breaker panel is equipped with safety features that protect you and your home from the dangers presented by electricity.
To the homeowner, the most important feature of a breaker panel is the circuit breakers. Circuit breakers power different sections of your home. Often, circuit breakers are dedicated to large appliances, bedrooms and lighting circuits. Breakers prevent excess power from flowing through your home’s electrical system. Excess power running through wires is dangerous because it generates heat and can cause a fire. When a breaker senses a spike in power demand, it flips a switch to prevent your wires from overheating. The switch can be reset to restore service to the circuit after the cause of the breaker trip is determined.
Modern homes have a higher energy demand than was necessary 50 years ago. As a result, many older homes do not have adequately sized panels to support the electrical needs of your family. Furthermore, older panels may even be fuse boxes. If either of these is the case for your home, it may be time to consider upgrading. Upgrading your panel can provide you with the power you need in a safer and more reliable way.

Why Should You Have a Backup Generator?
Power outages can be one of the most frustrating problems you may experience. Modern electrical grids have become so reliable that we seldom have to go without power. As a result of this reliability, outages typically are more severe and prolonged. Prolonged outages represent several problems:
Loss of Connectivity: With power outages, we lose access to television and the internet that provide information on the cause of an outage. Without this connectivity, we cannot access valuable information in the case of a natural disaster.
Loss of Food Preservation: One of the most important uses of power is for refrigerators. A single outage can ruin months worth of stored food in freezers and refrigerators and leave your family without a food source.
Loss of Critical Home Systems: Your Wendell, ID home is designed to be heated and cooled by its installed systems. If you lose power you may lose the ability to heat and cool your home. In the event of cold temperatures, a prolonged outage may put your home at risk of freezing pipes. High temperatures can put you at risk of overheating.
Installing whole-home generators can give you the peace of mind that you are prepared in the event of a prolonged outage. With a generator, you will avoid the inconvenience of an outage and protect your family and home. At Magic Electric, Plumbing, Heating + Air we install Generac generators. Not only do they add value to your home, but also the offer that peace of mind you deserve during a storm.
