FAQ

It’s time to call an electrician when your electrical systems fails or if you’re simply wanting to upgrade your electrical system. Some task can be taken care of by a homeowner but it’s always a safer bet to call a certified electrician to take care of your electrical needs! Some task that seem very simple can actually be very complex, Gravette Electrical Services is licensed and insured to diagnose an existing or install a new electrical system in your home in Covington, GA and surrounding areas. Stay safe and call a professional! 

A fuse is a piece of metal that melts when it gets too hot. While they are very good at quickly interrupting the flow of power, they have to be replaced whenever they melt. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take a lot to make them melt. There are many different fuses on the market with different voltages and ratings available. The fuses are held within a central fuse box in your home. With an old fuse panel you can’t add additional circuits to be fuse box, usually there’s no available space, also you can’t install arc fault protection to a fuse panel, which is a device that prevents dangerous electrical arcs and fires. 

 

A standard breaker when turned on, the circuit breaker allows electricity to flow across a solenoid or strip. When the flow gets too high, the circuit trips and shuts down the electrical flow by breaking the connection. To reset the circuit after the power has been interrupted, the switch can simply be flipped. You don’t need to replace the circuit breaker every time it is tripped. It is also easier to add new circuits to new electrical panels with standard circuit breakers. Our electricians are trained and certified to replace your old fuse panel with an updated circuit breaker panel! Our panel replacements come with a 5 year warranty on parts and labor! Call Gravette Electrical Services for all your electrical panel needs, we have replaced 100s of fuse boxes in and around Covington, Ga! 

Surge protection is a very important part of keeping your appliances and electrical systems safe. The 2020 National Electrical Code requires surge protection on all new electrical services. Surge protectors work by taking in all the extra voltage caused by electrical surges and sending it to the earth through the grounding system. The surge protector We install at Gravette Electrical Services comes with a 5 year limited warranty and an insurance policy through the manufacture of the surge protector covering up to $10,000.00 worth of damage to appliances caused by a surge! 

A humming or buzzing sounds coming from your electrical panel can be an easy fix or a very costly repair if not taken care of right away. Typically these sounds are due to a faulty breaker, overloaded breaker, or from there being a loose connection. Our electricians at Gravette Electrical services are trained to diagnose and repair any electrical issues you may have with your electrical panel.

If a breaker in your electrical panel is hot to the touch something could be seriously wrong! Gravette Electrical Services recommends turning the breaker off immediately and calling an electrician to come and diagnose the electrical fault! Breakers tend to get overheated from a loose connection or an overload which both can be dangerous to your family and property. 

Plugging a refrigerator in just anywhere in your  home is not suggested. Typically a refrigerator needs to have its own dedicated circuit breaker in order to supply the correct amount of current to the refrigerator. Plugging a refrigerator on a standard lighting or receptacle circuit can cause an overload on the circuit breaker, when this happens you are leaving yourself and family at risk of the breaker tripping and losing expensive groceries. Gravette Electrical Services specializes in remodel wiring and adding dedicated circuits in finished homes in and around the Covington, Ga area. 

This could mean that the ballast in the light fixture is starting to fail. Fluorescent lighting is outdated and the replacement ballast are starting to get scarce to find. Gravette Electrical Services specializes in LED lighting and retrofits. We would love to upgrade the lighting in your home to be more energy efficient! 

GFCI protection is very important to keep your family and friends safe from electrocution. It is recommended to leave these installations to professional electricians that are trained and certified. The areas that require GFCI protection in a home per the 2020 national electrical code are:

 

  • Kitchen receptacles (including refrigerator and oven if within 6 feet of the sink) 
  • Laundry area receptacles 
  • Outside receptacles
  • Garage receptacles 
  • Finished or unfinished Basements
  • Bathroom receptacles 
  • A/C units
  • Dishwasher 
  • pool or spa equipment 

Arc fault circuit interrupter breakers are designed to know the difference between good arcs, like a light switch turning on and bad arcs, like an arc created due to a loose connection. Arc fault breakers protect against overloads, short circuits, and those dangerous arcs, which can cause property damage. Standard breakers only protect against overload and short circuits! Gravette Electrical Services specializes in installing new arc fault protection on residential electrical systems.
