We do NOT repair appliances, lamps & light fixtures

Even a three minute visit requires a technician to arrive to your place, do that tiny job and then get back after the work is completed. Driving sometimes takes much more time than the assignment itself. It takes gas too. During the high traffic hours it could take two hours of driving in order to do that quick visit.

That is why the we charge a minimum $160 service call fee. It includes first hour of work. And $160 is a minimum charge. We charge $60 per hour after the 1st hour if the work takes more than one hour to do. Customer will pay for the materials and parts (if they were used) and end up paying exactly as much as it costs to do that small fix.

Danger of fire should make you, a homeowner wary of do-it-yourself electrical projects.

On one hand, an average homeowners is capable of replacing light switches, installing ceiling fans and even doing basic wiring jobs.

On another hand, electrical systems are the cause of nearly 60,000 home fires a year (in the USA alone), resulting in thousands of deaths and injuries. That is why even a very basic project requires certain knowledge and skills.

Does a DIY homeowner really know how to splice conductors of various types and sizes together? Or how to connect a stranded wire from the light fixture and a solid wire in the ceiling junction box?

Should you twist the solid conductors together? If yes, how many times, revolutions or rotations? Gaps between the poorly or under-twisted conductors would cause sparks and overheating. Yet, at the same time, you would damage or break the tip of the wire due to over-tightening.

Twist first, then apply a wire nut. To ensure a proper connection in a splice, twist with pliers the solid copper wire ends together before screwing on a wire nut. The bare tips should be twisted two full rotations (or two and a half) inside the nut and one more revolution beyond the marette, twisting together the adjacent insulated sections of the wires as well.

Did you know that things as simple as improper use of wire nut could cause a major fire? Not using the right size can lead to failed connections. An over-tightened, loose, or improperly installed wire nut will eventually get hot, fail and burn.
