Christmas Presents and The Need For More Power


Posted in: Electrical Repairs


residential-lighting-christmas-baltimoreWhen you have a home, you have many useful things that you use every day that require power. At Christmas time, we give and get more electronics than any other kind of present. Unfortunately, most of our homes don’t have custom electrical options installed in Baltimore at the time of building because so much of the technology we use today is newer than the majority of homes we live in.

Even homes built at the beginning of this century only have standard electrical systems that need to now be upgraded because of the increase in devices which require power.

Smartphones, smart thermostats, laptops, tablets, personal computers, gaming systems, special lighting, internet system devices, networking equipment, irrigation equipment, lighting, video systems, home security systems, exhaust fans, major and small appliances, and more all have to have power in order to run.

This list of devices, appliances, and tools we use to make our modern lives easier keeps getting larger. Now we’re even needing to plug in our automobiles! Yet our homes are usually lacking in enough outlets and enough power at the panel to produce what we consume.

Specialized Baltimore electrical systems should be installed for many of our systems, such as whole home surge protection and dedicated circuits. But first, the electrical system in our Baltimore homes should be inspected and upgraded to support our family needs for power.

Electrical services that can help you update your home’s electrical systems are more and more in demand from customers who’s homes can’t support the power required by the family. If you think about it, how well does your home support your power needs? Do you have all the outlets you need or do you use extension cords, outlet extenders, power surge strips with extra outlets, or outlet adapters?

You truly should have no need to add these extra outlets to your home. They actually can be a cause for fire, especially if you’re overloading your electrical system as you likely are. Your home was built to only serve a certain amount of power through the panel, wiring and outlet configurations. The older your home is, the less power it supports.

This is a huge problem for many homeowners who don’t yet understand how dangerous their homes are if they are trying to rig extra equipment or are running extensions cords and extra power strips everywhere. Instead of taking care of the problem by rigging everything, a wiser thing to do is to hire an electrician to help you upgrade your electrical systems. In this way, you can have all the outlets you need and sufficient equipment installed in your panel box to support the load.
