San Diego Residential Electrical Services
It sometimes seems like there’s a never-ending list of repairs and maintenance chores to do around the house. And while many of these tasks make for great do-it-yourself projects, electrical troubleshooting and repair are best left to the professionals.
Many homeowners rely too heavily on YouTube videos and online tutorials and feel they can tackle any home project, including electrical repairs. However, regardless of the information available, most do-it-yourselfers lack the training, certification, and experience to perform safe electrical repairs. A mistake made during an electrical repair isn’t the same as one made fixing a leaky faucet, because the former can lead to fire and fatality.
For safe, guaranteed electrical repair, trust the certified electricians at Point Loma Electric and Plumbing. We have over 32 years of experience and are fully licensed and insured for your protection.
4 Reasons to Consider Outlet Repair & Upgrades
Most of us take our household outlets for granted, even though we rely on them every day to power our appliances and charge our devices.
However, with constant use, outlets eventually wear out, and if you have an older home, the outlets may not meet the demands of living in the 21st-century.
If you’ve never given a second thought to your home’s outlets, here are four reasons to consider upgrading.
More Secure Connections
It’s a safe bet that most of us have dealt with an outlet with a loose connection. It’s maddening plugging in a device to charge it only to find out later the plug loosened and now your battery is dead. However, this isn’t the only issue with loose outlets. Loose connections can lead to sparking, electrical arcing, and fires. If you have outlets with loose connections, replace them as soon as possible.
If your home is over 50 years old, chances are you’re using the same outlets installed during construction. And if that’s the case, you’re missing out on the new convenience and technologies that come with modern outlets, such as multi-port connectors, GFCI receptacles, USB connectivity, Wi-Fi outlets, and dimmer controls.
The wires in your outlets can degrade in as little as 5 years, changing the way they connect to and power your appliances and devices. Older outlets can’t deliver the power required by modern devices and many of them are ungrounded, putting your gadgets and your home at risk.
Improved Electrical Transmission
If you have problems like flickering lights, maybe your outlets can’t keep up with your power needs. Besides upgrading your outlets, ask your electrical contractor to inspect your electrical panel to see if it needs upgrading as well.
At Point Loma Electric and Plumbing, we specialize in outlet repair services. Contact one of our certified electricians for an inspection today.

Why You Should an Emergency Generator
It’s easy to take electricity for granted. We flip a switch and expect the lights to come on or plug in a device and expect it to charge. However, when faced with hours or days without electricity, you suddenly realize how vital it is for modern living.
Installing a backup generator might seem like an unnecessary expense, but here are some things to consider that might change your mind.
It Prevents Food Spoilage
According to the USDA, the food in your refrigerator is safe for about four hours during a power outage, provided you keep the doors closed. A backup generator keeps your refrigerator running and protects your food against spoiling.
It Protects Well Water
Do you have well water? Without electricity, your well pump and filtration systems won’t be able to provide you with fresh water unless you have a backup generator.
You Work From Home
More people are working from home than ever before because of health concerns. So, whether you run a business from home or your company requires that you work from home, going without power even for a few hours can cost you money and productivity.
Your Property is Vacant
Do you have a rental property that’s sometimes vacant? How about a summer or winter home? An extended power outage can protect vacant properties from damage and would be ne’er-do-wells looking to cause trouble.
