The Quarantine Is a Great Time to Get Some Electrical Repairs Done

Electricians Are Essential and Ready to Work in Your Home


For working professionals in Aurora, Ohio, the COVID-19 stay-at-home order often means that it’s time to work from home. The kids that normally attend school in Aurora are now home as well. The electrical system in an Aurora home is being used for more hours and at a higher load than it’s ever been used before. It’s starting to expose some flaws in residential electrical systems in Aurora and many other Northeast Ohio communities. Luckily for residents that are experiencing electrical problems in Northeast Ohio, electricians are essential, and they are working hard to help you address electrical repair in places like Aurora, Hudson, Streetsboro, and surrounding communities.

Keep in mind that our electricians are working hard to maintain social distancing while in your home and are strict with cleaning and disinfecting policies as outlined by OSHA and the CDC to keep your family, as well as their own families, safe. With that in mind, you can comfortably turn to the next question: What can I improve or repair in my home electrical system that I have been putting off? And you are not only improving your home; you are also supporting local, Northeast Ohio electricians that are a vital part of our economy. Here are some ideas for electrical issues you can address during the quarantine:

Upgrade your breaker box.

Aurora has some beautiful new developments, and it also has some older homes. Classic homes are part of the character and fabric of Northeast Ohio, but those vintage Ohio homes need electrical upgrades. If you have an old fuse-style box, it can not only cause outages or flickering lights, but it can also be a fire hazard. Now is a great time to have that old panel upgraded, so it is better than ever when the quarantine ends.

Check the electrical connection to your A/C unit.

One of the most common electrical problems that Northeast Ohioans face in the summertime is problems with the electrical supply to the air conditioner. Now is the time to have an electrician test your A/C connection to ensure it will be running smoothly when you need it this summer.

Add some outside outlets.

Are you worried about having someone in your house? That’s understandable, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have some electrical upgrades performed. You’ll be glad that you added some extra outlets around your landscaping, garage, workshop, or pool this summer. Extra exterior outlets give you great opportunities to make your property look better as well as add extra security. It also makes yard work easier to perform as well!

Install a ceiling fan in your Florida room or back patio.

You’ll thank yourself for putting a fan in your screened in patio or Florida room this summer. If you have exterior access, this is another repair that can be done without having someone in your home.
