Why You Should Hire an Electrical Contractor For All Electrical Repairs
Whether you have a renovation or remodeling project or need some new outlets, it’s always in your best interest to call a licensed professional electrician to do the work instead of trying to do it yourself to save a few bucks.
Licensed electricians have the training and experience to do the job safely and ensure the work is up to current building codes. In fact, in most instances, the state of California must certify an electrician working with connections greater than 100 volt amps. To earn certification, electricians must undergo extensive training and complete an apprenticeship program, meaning they know how to perform repairs that don’t put your home or your life at risk.
Another thing to consider is that a licensed electrical contractor is insured. If you attempt electrical repair and inflict damage to your property, guess who’s on the hook to pay for it. When you hire a professional, their insurance protects you and your property against damage and other mishaps.
Last, while minor electrical repairs rarely require permits, jobs like renovations or rewiring do. Professional electricians know how to apply and get all the proper permits and approvals to ensure the electrical work is up to code and will pass inspection if it comes.
The bottom line is that it’s not worth the risk performing electrical repairs yourself. Instead, call the trained professionals at Point Loma Electric and Plumbing.

Signs You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade
Many homeowners don’t think their electrical panel might be the problem when they have electrical issues in the house. However, there are a few signs that could mean you’re due for an electrical panel upgrade.
Here’s what to watch for.
Burning Odors or Sparks
A spark here and there isn’t cause for concern; however, if you have an electrical panel that sparks frequently or gives off a burning odor, call an electrician immediately to troubleshoot the problem.
Lights Flicker or Dim When Using Appliances
If your lights flicker or dim when you use an appliance like a microwave or dishwasher, it usually means a circuit is overloaded, and the system tries to direct electricity from other parts of the home to compensate. If this is a frequently occurring problem, upgrading your electrical panel may be the solution.
Breakers Frequently Trip
Like the previous issue, frequent breaker trips mean there’s an overloaded circuit, and the breaker shuts the power down to protect the system. If your power needs are greater than what the system can provide, an electrical panel upgrade will solve the problem.
You Have a Fuse Box
If you live in a home built before 1960, chances are you have a fuse box instead of a breaker panel. Fuse boxes typically can’t handle the power demands of today and changing blown fuses is much less convenient than flipping a breaker switch. If you have a fuse box, call Point Loma Electric and Plumbing and ask about our breaker panel upgrade service to bring your home up to code and give you the power you need for your appliances and devices.
