Frequently Asked Questions
Flickering lights may indicate a problem, like a faulty bulb. If you still encounter the issue after replacing a bulb, then stop and call us. Trying to test it further can cause an electrical fire as the persistent flickering may be a sign of loose wiring.
A hot breaker panel is a sign of overheating. You need a replacement ASAP when this happens.

Handling minor electrical problems like replacing a light bulb is something any property owner can do. However, if you’re planning to do more than that, you might get hurt if you don’t have the right tools and equipment. We do not recommend doing DIY electrical fixes. The best option is to call an Atlanta electrician like us to diagnose and apply the proper solution.

- Garage door openers
- Washing machines and dryers
- HVAC systems
As long as they are directly wired into your circuits, the surge protector will help them. However, if you have a plugged-in refrigerator or washing machine, it will not help as much.
K&T stands for knob and tube wiring. It is a form of electrical wiring that was the standard during the late 1800s to early 1900s in the US. The government later replaced them because of the discovery of hazards caused by their installation. If you discover them in your home, you should have them replaced.
Breakers often trip because of an electrical overload. You may have too many devices and appliances on the same circuit. It could also be a sign of a deeper electrical issue. Either way, the best solution is to contact us if you experience consistent breaker trips.
Smoke detectors will beep if they are on low battery. They’ll continue to do so until you replace the battery or it drains. The best practice is to replace smoke detector batteries annually.

The number is a representation of how much voltage the device or appliance needs to power it fully. As a general rule, 110 voltage is for smaller items while 220 volts are for large appliances. If you try to use a 110 volt on a 220 device, it will not run or will run at a weaker capacity. On the other end, a 110v can burn out with a higher voltage.
Yes, it is possible to replace a four-prong plug with a three-prong one. However, according to the NEC, the safer option would be to upgrade your electrical supply to match your 220V appliances.
If you live in an area that experiences power outages, then a generator is an option to keep the electricity running in your home. You’ll find that many homes that experience hurricanes have generators. It is an option because of how long some US power grid repairs take.
