Electrical Wiring and Rewiring

Your home’s electrical wiring is essential to functionality and safety. Faulty wiring can lead to unexpected shocks and even fires, so it’s important that it’s done correctly.

As needs change, homes grow, and technology advances, you may find yourself in need of electrical wiring for your home to accommodate changes. At Asbury Electric, we’re here to optimize your home for maximum enjoyment and comfort. Beyond initial installations, you can also reach out for help with:

  • Circuit breaker installations
  • Entertainment center wiring
  • Computer wiring
  • Hot tub wiring

If your next home project involves electrical wiring, we have the skills and experience to get the job done right. 

Outdated and faulty wiring are the two biggest reasons to rewire your home. It’s a big project but a critically important one, especially if your home meets certain requirements. How do you know if your home needs rewiring? If any of the following problems are familiar to you, it’s time to give us a call. 

Burnt Outlet Covers

Burnt outlet covers result from loose connections or degraded wiring. Burnt or discolored outlets are a significant indicator that your home needs rewiring. Loose connections mean electricity is escaping in the form of sparks, which can lead to fires and electrical shocks. When you notice burnt outlet covers, turn to us to fix the underlying issue.

Burning Smells

A burning smell in your home that you can’t place may result from a defect in your wiring. This smell indicates that one of those sparking wires that heated your outlets has also burned something within your walls that you can’t see. Contact us immediately if you detect this smell. 

Flickering Lights

Flickering lights are more than just an annoying quirk of an old house. These lights demonstrate that your electrical wiring isn’t holding up to the job like it used to. Flickering lights may come from faulty wiring and damaged circuits, which indicate that your home is a candidate for rewiring. 

Old Wiring

Homes built before the 1970s used different wiring standards than today and require rewiring for electrical safety. These homes were often wired with aluminum. While aluminum is cheaper and a known conductor of electricity, it doesn’t hold up as well as the copper used in homes today.

Aluminum expands when heated and contracts as it cools. The constant movement and activity eventually lead to loose connections as wires shift away from their connections and arc. 

Aluminum is also prone to rust and corrosion. As the wiring breaks down over time, it restricts the flow of electricity.

GFCI Outlet Installations

A lot of home electrical safety requirements changed in the 1970s. In addition to making the change from aluminum to copper wiring, GFCI outlets also became a requirement. Ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets are explicitly designed to prevent electrocution, which is why they’re required at crucial points within your home, namely any place near water. GFCIs quickly detect power surges and shut off to prevent shocks. 

Asbury Electric uses high-quality breaker panels with all copper bus bars and only copper wiring. This prevents issues from happening for decades to come. These outlets are required anywhere electricity and water are present, including:

  • Kitchens
  • Laundry rooms
  • Crawl spaces
  • Bathrooms 
  • Garages 

Our electricians can install GFCIs to bring an older home up to code or add GFCIs to a new addition. We also install these outlets for hot tub circuits or wet bar outlets.

Ceiling Fan Installation

Ceiling fans bolster the airflow in your home, keeping you cool. They also contribute to the overall aesthetic of your space. Our expert electricians install these heavy and bulky fans quickly, safely, and at a reasonable rate. We’ll do the job for you to prevent the risk of injury. 

EV Car Charger Installation

Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular as technology advances. If you own one of these modern eco-friendly vehicles or are thinking about purchasing one, you will need a home electric vehicle (EV) charger. 

While charging stations are an asset on road trips, you’ll likely want to charge your car from the comfort of your own home most of the time.

The experienced electricians at Asbury Electric are your local experts at EV car charger installations. We install simple chargers that plug directly into your existing system. Our electricians can also provide larger and more complex charger installations for your home. We’re here to assess your home’s electrical needs before performing the installation that is both safe and efficient.

Generator Sales and Service

We sell and install Generac generators. Our lead generator technician is William, a Generac-certified sales, service, and installation technician.

We focus on quality and thorough installation practices. Whether your fuel is natural gas or propane, we have you covered. As an authorized Generac sales, installation, and service dealer, we’re a reliable partner for all generator services. We also offer financing to make your installation more affordable.

Our generator services include yearly and bi-yearly service agreements to test your generator with a loaded exercise. We simulate a power outage to ensure the generator and transfer switch work properly before bad weather strikes. We also:

  • Change the oil, filters, and spark plugs
  • Check the battery
  • Do a complete safety and operations check once a year

We do an extra systems check and loaded transfer for our bi-yearly checkup. This service is essential for our customers with life safety equipment in the home. We take our job seriously, so we go the extra mile to ensure you have a safe generator that works during an outage.
