The level of quality of inspection is greatly influenced by the experience of the inspector.

Silver Spring home generators are permanent. They are installed outside the home and activate just like a central air conditioning system, but instead of turning on when it’s warm inside, they turn on when sensing the loss of electricity. This type of generator is much more commanding than one that is portable, supplying power to a much larger amount of circuits.

Knob & Tube Wiring
When Knob and Tube wiring was first introduced in the home electrical wiring industry, most common household electrical appliances were no larger than a small toaster or coffee maker. The electrical advancements of the 20th century are well-known for using higher amps and power loads such as televisions, refrigerators, and a plethora of other electric appliances. It is not uncommon for our electrical inspectors to find Knob and Tube Wiring connections wrapped with masking tape or Scotch tape instead of electrical tape.
Many of these knob and tube wiring connections were made by insufficiently trained handymen, rather than experienced electricians, whose work made the wiring system vulnerable to overloading.
Whether you need Knob & Tube Wiring, Knob Tube Re-wiring, or just need a professional electrician, S&S Electric has you covered. We look forward to welcoming you as a customer and being your preferred electrician whenever you have a Knob & Tube Wiring problem in your Fairfax home.
Fairfax electrical panel upgrades can bring your outdated breaker box up to speed with the demands of today’s power needs. Don’t let an inadequate power supply hold you back: contact your local electricians today!
From bigger televisions to computers to high-powered microwaves, fridges, and dishwashers, today’s homes are jam-packed with high-tech gadgets. All of this technology makes our lives more comfortable, convenient, and entertaining, but the simple truth is that most older homes weren’t built to power all of these electricity-hungry appliances and electronics. The breaker box that was installed when your house was built was more than sufficient to power a few lights, electrical sockets, and basic appliances, but it doesn’t have the capacity to keep up with today’s technology and your energy demands. The good news is that S&S Electric’s professional electricians in the Fairfax and Silver Spring area can help you modernize your house with an electrical service upgrade, enhancing your building’s electrical capacity to meet today’s needs.
Protect your investments with Fairfax surge protection services! Most people think their homes and equipment are completely surge protected, but later discover that they are only partially protected. Unfortunately, this usually happens once it’s too late.
Things to know about electrical powers surges for Fairfax homes:
- The average home gets 20 surges a day.
- You get up to 30% more life out of your appliances and electronic equipment if you use surge protection.
- A lightning strike up to a mile away can do damage or destroy electronics.
- Better insurance policies are available if your home is protected.
A surge protector also saves your home from catching a fire caused by the overflow of power supply. But it is also very important that you are aware of the limitations these protectors come with. By design, they’re usually only suited to AC appliances. For the appliances in the home, such a device can cut the level of power supply to an appropriate level. This device works whenever there is an upsurge of power supply into the home’s electrical panel.
Putting it plainly, the Fairfax whole house surge protector shields your home’s appliances from getting damaged due to surplus electricity flow. Every Fairfax household should be equipped with a whole house surge protector.
