Trouble shooting and Repairs

LEAVE IT TO THE EXPERTS…

Even minor electrical repairs are best left to professional electricians, not just because we are experts, but because it is what will be safest for you and your family.

If you choose to do electrical repairs yourself, or ask a friend for help, you risk putting your family in danger.

Keep in mind, electricians are licensed to work on your home and business and are covered by insurance plans.

If a DIY project causes damage to your home, you will be personally liable for the full cost of repairs as well as replacing anything that was damaged.

Safety is the most important aspect. The amount of electrical current running through the circuits of your home can be deadly.

Properly shutting down power, grounding circuits, knowing which wires are safe to touch, and wearing the proper safety gear requires more resources, training and experience than most people generally possess. There are many factors to keep in mind when maintaining a safe work environment around live wires and electrical current.
It’s best to leave it to the pros at Delcollo Electric.

Pools and Hot tubs

Wiring for a Swimming Pool, Hot Tub or Spa?

Our Electricians Can Do It All

Trust your Hot Tub Wiring or Swimming Pool Wiring to a Professional

Yes, we do the wiring for swimming pool & hot tubs

In the last few years, pools and hot tubs / spas have become more popular than ever for homeowners. As we spend more time at home than ever before, we begin to rely more on our homes for those extra luxuries, like having swimming pools and hot tubs right in our backyard. Having your own pool is like having a party spot ready to go all the time.

If you’re reading this, you’re either shopping for a pool or hot tub, or you’re approaching the installation stage. Whether you’ve chosen an in-ground pool, above ground pool, plug and play hot tub, or an extra large, extra luxurious spa model, electricity and water is a sensitive combination.

It’s crucial to have the swimming pool / hot tub wiring done by professionals.

Your local electrical inspector WILL require you to hire a licensed electrician.

It’s important to consider whether your home can support the additional load of a swimming pool or hot tub. Particularly for older homes that could require an electrical service upgrade. This is something that will need to be taken care of to prevent disappointment and to prevent your new pool or hot tub from overloading your service.

Even though you can simply plug in a smaller, no-frills, hot tub to any standard 15-amp, 120v Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet, we can make sure the outlet is properly grounded, and then we can fix it if it’s not up to par. You’d be surprised how often we discover an exterior outlet that isn’t up to electrical codes and is unsafe for use anywhere near water.

Aluminum Wiring Repairs

Aluminum Wiring (shown at right) was used in the construction of roughly 1.5 million U.S. homes built between 1965 and 1973., homes wired with aluminum wire manufactured before 1972 (“old technology” aluminum wire) are 55 times more likely to have one or more connections reach Fire Hazard Conditions than is a home wired with copper. This problem only gets worse with time. The aluminum-wired connections that fail tend to progressively deteriorate at a slow rate, and after many years can reach very high temperature while still remaining electrically functional in the circuits. A large number of connection burnouts have occurred in aluminum-wired homes. Many fires have occurred some involving injury and death.

Delcollo Electric has the solution

One of our most common calls is for repairs (and incorrectly) install new copper-only rated outlets and switches directly to aluminum wiring. These connections will start to break down and need repair. Delcollo Electric performs proper splicing installations and repairs for homeowners, buyers, sellers, and realtors during home purchases.
