Hidden Electrical Dangers in Your Home
Let us help protect your family...
Smoke alarms and carbon dioxide detectors
Don't have these in your house? We recommend you give us a call so we can give you an estimate. There are wireless and traditional hard wired detectors. Smoke detectors can be hard wired through the house so they all sound at the same time, or wireless smoke detectors can be frequency linked to each other; which saves time running wire and cutting holes. Need a carbon dioxide detector that works with your smoke alarm to warn you in a emergency? We can do that too.
Cloth wiring in your attic
Knob and tube wiring in your attic is not safe if it has insulation over it. The temperature rating is not high enough to withstand the heat build up and it will fray, crack, and become brittle. This can cause the wire to become exposed and create a fire hazard. Knob and tube also means you have no equipment ground to keep you safe.
Signature Wiring is now offering home critical electrical checks.
