Dealing with Electric Failures, Day by Day

Power failures are frustrating and difficult in ways people don't always understand. Being used to having a steady power source, you don't always think of the full effects of a power outage.

If you build a house yourself, or hire a contractor to build your plans on your lot, you'll have more input toward the project and may decide to hire your own electrical contractor rather than using the one recommended by the general building contractor.

Three Things You Should Know About Installing New Outlets

It isn’t hard to install new electrical outlets, but it’s important to prep your home accordingly. To avoid any strange scenarios, check out the three tips below:
