Knoxville Electrical Device Upgrades

Of late, have you been experiencing flickering lights in your home in Knoxville? Are you asking yourself why your circuit breaker keeps on tripping? The first question you should ask yourself is, “When did I last do upgrades on my electrical system?” The majority of the homeowners in Knoxville always assume that different electrical appliances would work fine throughout. What some of them overlook is the fact that these electrical devices usually undergo wear and tear without them knowing. Therefore, if your current electrical system is unable to satisfy your electrical needs, then it’s probably the best time to look for Knoxville Electrical device upgrades specialists to look into your electrical system. 

The power demands of present homes in Knoxville, Tennessee, have changed considerably over the years and come with new electrical safety measures and guidelines. For example, electrical systems installed in homes in Knoxville that were built a long time ago may be able to provide power to outlets; however, insufficient for energy-efficient home appliances and ultramodern electronic devices. For example, the traditional fuse boxes cannot cope with the present energy loads. In this case, the absence of ground fault circuit interrupters can blow up your fuses if you try to power more than one electrical appliance at the same time. It’s also very possible for your home in Knoxville to have no installed smoke alarms, as is required by electrical safety code. That’s why it’s essential to upgrade all your electrical devices.

How to upgrade your electrical devices in Knoxville, Tennessee

The first thing you should do is upgrade your panel by introducing more power from the device to your Knoxville home. You can achieve this by simply replacing the old circuit breakers and meters with new ones that can endure more power. Obsolete and damaged circuit breakers or panels expose both you and your home in Knoxville to danger. That’s why you should consider getting Knoxville Electrical device upgrades specialists to upgrade your electrical devices. The second thing you should do is to add additional circuits that can help dispense power to other places and electrical appliances. When doing an upgrade on your electrical system in your home in Knoxville, you should not forget to add new outlets and replace the old cables and receptacles. 

Signs of a Faulty Electrical System

Frequent Circuit Breaker Trips 

If your circuit breaker in your home in Knoxville keeps tripping, then you should consider hiring a licensed electrician. It’s very okay for circuit breakers to trip once in a while. However, if the circuit breaker trips frequently, then that signals an underlying issue with your electrical system in your Knoxville home. That means that the circuit breaker cannot keep up with your electrical demand. Any mindful homeowner should never ignore this kind of problem. Call our team of experts in Knoxville today and get it rectified before it becomes a disaster.

Flickering of Lights

If your lights keep flickering, then you should not overlook it. It shows that your electrical appliance’s power needs in your Knoxville home are too high. In this case, you should consider updating your power outlets. Also, if your home in Knoxville has a lot of extension cords, then it’s probably the best time to call our team of specialists in Knoxville to look into it.

Your electrical appliances have three prongs while your outlets have two

The majority of the old homes usually have two prongs. On the other hand, modern home appliances come with three prongs. This brings about an incompatibility issue that can only be rectified by engaging Knoxville electrical device upgrades specialists to do an upgrade of your outlets. Two prongs do not only inconvenience you but also indicate that your electrical system does not meet all the laid safety standards. 

If your Plugs in your Knoxville home are heating up 

This is an indicator that your Knoxville home wiring is made of aluminum, which is a threat to your safety. This is a common problem, especially for Knoxville homes that were built in the 1960s. Let us sort out this problem before anyone is hurt. Make that call, and we will sort it out for you.

If your home in Knoxville doesn’t have a GFCIs

Some homes in Knoxville don’t have ground fault circuit interrupters, which exposes everyone to the risk of electrocution. In this case, you should consider engaging a certified electrician to upgrade your system.

Electrical FAQs

Frequent breaker trips could be a sign that the circuit is being overloaded somewhere on the property. A wire, socket, or appliance could be overheating, which could eventually cause a fire.

A light bulb that prematurely burns out in a particular lamp or socket is a sign of a poor electrical connection causing heat build-up in the lamp. Identifying the poor connection and repairing it should resolve the issue.

Yes. A loose plug in an outlet results in high electrical resistance. Electrical resistance causes overheating, which often results in a fire. An overheating outlet may also damage the connected device or appliance. Replacing an electrical outlet is a relatively inexpensive task.

A breaker could be loose, or a hot breaker is allowing current to flow between hot and neutral. Either issue should be inspected immediately by a qualified electrician.

The National Electric Code (NEC) requires new installations to provide a second neutral on all 220V appliances. You can replace the four-prong cord with a three-prong cord, but the safer option would be to upgrade the electrical supply to your 220V appliances.
