Nothing is quite as exciting as building a new house for you and your family to live in for years to come. On the other hand, you may be building a house to sell as an investment, which can be just as exciting while also incorporating a factor of fear as you hope your investment materializes into profit as you find a wonderful family who needs the home to whom you can sell it.

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:
Tip One: Turn Off the Breaker
Before adding a new outlet, you’ll need to make sure your breaker panel is turned off. Double-check that your breaker is turned off with a voltage tester. If you don’t have a voltage tester, plug in a lap to the nearest-available socket. Additionally, it’s a good idea to test the new socket directly by plugging the excess length into an electrical application.
Storm damage can cause headaches for homeowners in the form of electrical equipment damage. Not only does this type of damage leave you with no electricity, it can also be an unexpected financial burden. However, by following the below tips, you can have electricity restored to your home in a safe and secure manner.
More and more homeowners are becoming more energy conscious. Concerns about energy use affects everyone. Whether you simply want to save money or you want to reduce your carbon footprint, energy conservation is on everyone’s mind.
It's one thing if a power problem is outside your home. You’ll tell your friends the next day, “There were trees falling. I hate storm damage to my electrical lines.” All you need in this situation is some sympathy and the utility company to deploy its professional crews to safely restore your electrical service.
The cost of energy is an important consideration each month when it comes to keeping your home warm or cooled. One way you can keep your home comfortable while reducing the cost of energy is by using a ceiling fan. However, ever ceiling fan isn’t created equal. At Harrison Electric, we want you to get the most benefits from your ceiling fan.
