Electrical Safety Inspections Keeping Keller Homes Safe
Electricity is a powerful, essential and dangerous commodity. Every modern household needs it, but faults in electrical components or in electrical systems can turn into potential hazards that put health and property at risk. At OC Services, we employ a team of master electricians who understand and respect the power of electricity. With your safety as our number one concern, we offer electrical safety inspections. Our inspections are thorough and comprehensive as we test each component of your entire electrical system for safety and efficiency. That is why we are the most trusted source for electrical safety inspections in the Keller area.
At OC Services, our comprehensive electrical safety inspections are designed to fully test your system’s safety at every point as well as how efficiently it is operating. This will reveal potential hazards that could lead to equipment malfunction or worse. This will also reveal how efficiently your system is performing and how adequately it meets your family’s energy consumption needs. Once this information is revealed, much like a doctor’s check up, you will know whether your system has a clean bill of health, or whether improvements or upgrades could benefit your household. This could save you money and keep you safe in the process.

A power surge is simply when something causes an increased electrical charge in the power line in its route to your outlets. The most common cause of this is lightening, although power company equipment can have this effect too. Any electrical component in your home from your lighting to your appliances can fall victim to power surges. These surges can be a hazard to your electronic equipment as most appliances aren’t designed to withstand high levels of current. This is why surge protection is important. At OC Services, the safety of your property is important to us, and that is why we offer a number of surge protection services. All of our technicians are master level, so our electrical work is impeccable. We can advise you on the best way to protect your electronics and appliances as well as install directly into your circuit breaker box surge protection devices.
The two devices used for surge protection in a home, aside from the common “power strip” are arc fault circuit interrupters and ground fault circuit interrupters. Both of these devices interrupt the circuit. AFCI’s are installed at the circuit breaker while GFCI’s can be either on the circuit breaker or on the power outlet itself. GFCI’s are designed to prevent electrocution by sensing imbalances in the current flow. AFCI’s prevent electric fires by sensing the leaking of electricity from old wires.
