In order to keep your home running, you need a steady supply of safe, reliable power. But as the demand for electricity continues to grow, many homes have difficulty handling the escalating power loads, making surges, shorts, and other problems increasingly common. Whenever you have an issue with your home’s electrical system, call the experts at Your Home Electricians.
Your Home Electricians was founded in 1991 to provide high-quality electrical installation and repair services to the residents of Mississauga and the surrounding area. Over that time, we’ve established a reputation built on trust, exceptional craftsmanship, and unparalleled customer service. No matter the size of the job, Your Home Electricians will get the work done quickly and efficiently.
Our electricians have been installing electrical components and fixtures in homes all over the Mississauga area for more than 30 years. Here are a few of the more frequent services we provide:
Roof and Floor Heating Cables
During the long, cold winters in Mississauga, having a roof and floor heating cables isn’t just a convenience it can be a godsend. Roof heating cables help prevent snow and ice from building up on your roof, where they can cause damage to your shingles, gutters, and other parts of your home. This helps keep you from more expensive repairs later on.
In-floor heating cables can add a nice touch of warmth to your stone, ceramic, or engineered wood floors. These cables can be installed almost anywhere in your home, keeping your feet nice and toasty. And if you’re sick of shoveling, we can also install heating cables under your driveway!
Ventilation and Exhaust Fans
From range hood vents to exhaust fans in humid areas like bathrooms, keeping your home adequately ventilated can make your interior much more comfortable. When you install an exhaust fan, you’ll notice these benefits:
- Reduces odors from cooking
- Helps control humidity in your home, especially in restrooms
- Limits air pollutants by venting stale air outdoors
- Removes grease vapor from cooking, keeping your kitchen cleaner
The experts at Your Home Electricians can help you find the best place for installing exhaust fans, including garages and attics.
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Electric vehicles (EVs) are everywhere these days, and for many homeowners, that means installing an EV charging station. Our technicians are specially trained to install and maintain these charging stations, and we’ll help you decide which model is right for you.
At Your Home Electricians, our experts love helping customers design interesting lighting concepts for their homes, both indoors and out. We’ll consult with you on what kind of lighting you’re looking for, then determine what we need to do to make it happen. Whether you’re installing track lighting, recessed pot lights, or ceiling fixtures, we have the experience and the knowledge to ensure that your new lighting elements will be installed safely and correctly.
Dealing with electrical repairs is never fun. That’s why we try to make it as stress-free as possible. On-time, our technicians pull up in their fully equipped truck ready to get to work.
Your electrical panel is the heart of your home’s power system. So when you have issues with your panel, your entire electrical system can come to a screeching halt. Contact Your Home Electricians if you notice any of the following:
- Strange sounds coming from your panel, like crackling or popping
- Odd smells, like burning plastic or sulfur
- Corrosion or other damage on or around your panel
- Breakers that frequently trip
We can help you repair any issues you may be experiencing with your panel, or we can also help you upgrade to a newer, more efficient model. Your home may require more power than ever, and with a new electrical panel, you’ll be sure to have the power you need, when you need it.
Plugs and Switches
When a plug or a switch suddenly stops working, it’s not just annoying it could be a sign of a bigger problem. Rather than trying to fix it yourself, let Your Home Electricians handle the problem. We’ll make sure we find the problem and fix it for good.
We can also install additional switches and plugs wherever you need them, so you don’t have to plug everything into a single outlet, or reach to find an inconveniently placed light switch.
Circuits and Wiring
While many of the calls we receive are for seemingly simple jobs, like broken plugs, flickering lights, or breakers that keep tripping, we can often trace these issues back to the wiring in the home.
Because building codes change over time, and new technologies and techniques are constantly developing, wiring that was perfectly fine when it was installed may no longer be adequate for your home. With Your Home Electricians, we can inspect your home’s wiring to track down the root of your problems. We’ll repair or upgrade your wiring to ensure your electrical system works safely and reliably.
As technology advances, there’s a good chance your electrical system may benefit from an upgrade, including some of these options:
Knob and Tube/Aluminum Wiring
While knob and tube wiring became obsolete in the 1950s, and aluminum wire was outlawed in the 1970s, there are still a large number of older homes still using these systems to carry power. Not only are these outdated systems less efficient than modern copper wiring, but they also present a much higher risk of fire. Our technicians are experienced at upgrading these systems to meet code, making your home safer and much more energy efficient.
Fuse to Breaker Upgrades
While homes today are built with a circuit breaker panel, many older homes are still using a fuse system. Unfortunately, fuse panels simply don’t have the capacity to safely meet today’s energy demands, leaving you changing fuses constantly while exposing yourself to a constant fire hazard.
Circuit breakers, on the other hand, are easy to reset and require very little maintenance for most homeowners. What’s more, they can handle up to 200 amps of power, which should be more than enough for most homes. If you still have a fuse box, call Your Home Electricians today and schedule your upgrade.
When you upgrade your light switches, you gain complete control over the lighting in your home. Our technicians can help you install dimmers, timers, or motion sensors to give you the lighting control you want. Not only can you set the right mood while also providing security in your outdoor lighting system, but these advanced controls will also save you money on your utility bill.
Dedicated to Safety
At Your Home Electricians, we care about the safety of your home and your family. That’s why we’re dedicated to offering a number of ways to improve your electrical safety.
The most important step in your home’s electrical safety is a regular inspection of your power system. We make sure our electricians are fully trained in the most up-to-date building codes. If you’ve received notification that your home is not in compliance with those regulations, contact Your Home Electricians, and we’ll have a technician update your system to bring it up to code.
Full Home Surge Protection
Your home is full of sensitive electronics, from phones and laptops to larger electronics with smart technology. However, damage from power surges is an ever-present threat. Some homeowners could experience up to 50 micro-surges a day, small enough that you may not notice them, but big enough to potentially harm your electronic devices. With full home surge protection, you can protect your devices from these surges, possibly saving yourself a bundle in repair costs.
Having smoke detectors in your home isn’t just smart—it’s the law. At Your Home Electricians, we’ll make sure you have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors where you need them. And as a certified Nest installer, we can integrate your smoke detection system into the Nest Pro.
No one knows when the power is going to go out, and when it does, it can stay off for hours. You can protect yourself by installing an in-home emergency generator to keep your home functioning no matter what.
The experts at Your Home Electricians will make sure your new generator complies with the law, and install a special transfer switch to protect your generator and your supply lines. We’ll make sure you get the right size generator to meet your power requirements and give you the information you need to use your generator effectively.
