Some things you should know
Your home or business is your investment. What better way to protect that investment than to be educated on the basic ins and outs of your electrical system? Asking professionals for the best recommendations and pricing can be tricky. Before you use a contractor, take a look below. I want to make sure you feel empowered and have all of the information you need to make the best decision.

ISSUES & INFORMATION
When looking for a contractor, it's best to always get at least 3 estimates. Different contractors may make different recommendations. Be sure to give the same details to all so your estimates are apple to apples.
USING A HANDYMAN
While there are a lot of very skilled handymen in Las Vegas, electrical work can be very complex and require defined expertise that they are not able to provide. In a lot of cases, a handyman may try to fix an issue or perform an installation with good intentions but end up causing further issues that will ultimately end up costing you MORE money. It's always the best bet to find a licensed and insured electrician at the start to make the process more efficient, effective and expertly performed.
have an hoa?
HOA's are great to keep your neighborhood looking good and functioning safely, but they may have regulations and procedures in place that you need to look into BEFORE buying your new flood light or security camera. It would be a shame to have to take your new feature down or get a fine!
GFI'S & BREAKERS
Resetting your GFI or breaker is the first step to troubleshooting, and doing it yourself can save you time and money.
GFI: Try to reset first. On your GFI, push the reset button until you hear a click.
BREAKER: Push the handle in question all the way back until you hear a click, then push forward until you have reset the power.
If you're unsure how to reset, don't hesitate to call and I will walk you through the process.
CEILING FANS, OUTLETS, SWITCHES & CAN LIGHTS
It's important to understand that 90% of all ceiling fans, outlets, switches & can lights installed AFTER your home or business is built will require cutting into and repairing drywall to run cables as needed for switching and circuitry. I will be upfront about the extent of drywall needs and make the most appropriate recommendations for you.
