Fairfax Electrician & Electrical Repair Specialist
Fairfax electric repairs or upgrades are just what they imply, a repair or upgradeto the existing electrical wiring, systems or panels. Nowadays with all the new appliances, electronics and technical devices we now have in our Fairfax area homes, we find that older homes are not wired to handle today’s power needs. Not only does your Fairfax home need occasional electrical repairs, an upgrade in your electric panel, but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel.
A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.
Panel upgrades require knowledge of electrical wiring, systems and function. Anything that deals with electricity should be handled by licensed electrician for safety and security. Our electrical repair experts at S&S Electric are licensed Fairfax electrician that guarantee quality work and assure that the required standards are fully met.

Fairfax Electrical Repairs
Most households and buildings regularly require Fairfax electrical repairs. This is logical as electricity is always used for operating appliances, equipment, and other machines. Short-circuits and small electrical shocks are normal and are quite usual. However, it is surprising that services of professional electricians are hardly sought.
No one could blame home and building owners for finding ways to cut on costs. Hiring professionals to perform Fairfax electrical repairs could be quite expensive especially when done on a regular basis. Many people tend to apply their basic knowledge and skills in electricity. Some hire unlicensed electricians, who charge significantly lower rates.
Fairfax Home Generators
Power outages are inconvenient and can cause many problems for homeowners. Violent storms and other types of bad weather can cause these power outages, making them very common. To avoid this problem, people are installing standby home generators. With a standby home generator, enough power can be restored to your home to live a relatively normal life during this crucial time.
Fairfax 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.
What Fairfax Customers Say About Us
S & S Electric, LLC is Rated: 5 / 5
based on these 2 happy customer reviews.
“As many of you that live in a townhouse know the 3rd floor can be quite hard to keep cool. Many of you like me have small ac units in your bed rooms upstairs trying to keep them cool. Sending tons of unneeded money to the local electrical company. My master bed room faces the souther sky and during the summer and this keeps the ac cranking. On many days the temps upstairs reach a temp in the low 90′s. My ac unit set at 75deg and it can not keep up.
So I did a quick google search and found a company that’s main focus is attic fans and other electrical jobs. They say an attic fan can save you money every month by helping to keep the attic cooler thus helping keep the whole house cooler throughout the summer.
I contacted S & S Electric out of southern Maryland. They were quick to respond back and were helpful at answering my questions.
They gave me a window on when they would show. Unlike the cable company, They were on time within that time window, and called when they were about 45 mins out.
When they showed, they told me what they would do and wasted no time getting to work. Nothing like a hot August day to be working on a roof and in an attic.
The pricing in my mind was fair. $475. My original plan was to buy the fan, call a roofer have it installed, then call in an electrician to wire it in. The time and effort that this would have taken may have saved me 50-75 dollars, but in my mind this was a better option. My Personal time is money.
While the guys were here I had them go ahead and hard wire a whole house fan that I had put in to the attic back in the spring. The cost was $125, And that was ok by me.
Install time for the attic fan: about 1hr. Install time on whole house fan wiring: 30min.
Overall I was very happy with S&S electric and would recommend them for your project.”
“They fixed my problem efficiently, gave me advice on fixing another problem, stayed within the estimate they had given me for charges, and didn’t leave any mess. I could not have been more pleased.”
