You have questions. We have answers.

The short answer is whenever you require electrical services. You can learn to do just about anything around the home by watching DIY videos and reading blog posts, but some things are best left to a certified electrician. To protect yourself, your family and your home, call a residential electrician whenever you’re required to work with or near electricity.

If you are resetting circuit breakers or changing fuses more often than usual, you should contact an electrician as soon as possible. If your lights flicker and/or dim when other appliances are turned on, this is also an indicator of electrical issues. If you are running multiple electronics through a single outlet, it’s wise to call an electrician to ensure your safety. This also includes the use of extension cords. Some outlets aren’t fit for handling so much electricity and need to be upgraded for your safety.

If your home’s electrical panel is more than 20 years old, it’s time to contact Converse Electric.

It all depends on how much you’re willing to risk in order to save money. While most states allow you to perform any electrical task in your home, it can be incredibly dangerous and costly for anyone who lacks the proper knowledge. Attempting even small jobs without proper training can lead to serious safety risks. If you feel that any electrical project is even slightly out of your range, it’s crucial that you contact an experienced electrician right away.

There are almost too many reasons to list, but here are some of the top reasons why you should always hire a certified contractor to perform electrical work in your home:

  • It’s Safer — Working with electricity is extremely dangerous. In addition to the immediate physical danger of electroshock and electrocution, improper electrical work can also pose a fire hazard. Protect yourself and your family by hiring an electrical contractor instead of taking on the job yourself.
  • It’s Cheaper — Hiring an electrician can be significantly cheaper in the long run if your DIY repairs cause any problems and need to be repaired. You might be able to save a few bucks upfront doing the job yourself, but you stand to save even more in the long run by hiring an electrician.
  • It’s Easier — Even if you have the time to devote to DIY electrical installation or repairs, do you know the first place to start? One thing is certain: It’s a whole lot easier to contact Converse Electric than it is to go through the hassle of DIY electrical service.

If your panel is humming, this could mean your breaker is defective. If that’s the case, it should be replaced immediately, as it could cause irreversible damage to your electrical components.

If your breaker is overheating, contact an electrician immediately. Excess heat is a serious hazard and should not be overlooked.
Some breakers don’t appear to be tripped but are actually in a neutral state, not allowing full function. The best way to make sure your breaker is fully operational is to turn every breaker off and then on.
A surge protector keeps your devices from being over-flooded with electricity. Surges of electricity can sometimes come from lightning or from your local power station and can be incredibly destructive to your electronics.
Surge protectors are commonly used to protect expensive devices such as computers, televisions and sound systems. If you want to keep your devices safe and not have to replace them, it’s highly suggested you protect them with a surge protector.
Your electrical outlet is no longer safe if the plug is not secure, moving easily or falling off without touching it. You can also tell that it’s unsafe if the outlet is warm or hot to the touch. If you are experiencing these outlet symptoms, you should discontinue use immediately and contact an electrician.
Yes. Depending on the lights in your home, there are several dimmers for the job. A dimmer with the use of specific bulbs, like incandescent, CFLs and LEDs, will transform your old switch into an accessible mood-setter.

Don’t be shocked by electrical repair.
