    Electrical Panels


    Unless you live (quite literally) under a rock, nearly every home in Washington, from Seattle to Spokane, runs on electricity. In today’s day and age electricity is key to survival. It powers your fridge to keep your food fresh, fuels your AC in the summer, and keeps you from having to do laundry by hand. Your home’s electrical system revolves around your electrical panel. When your electrical panel breaks or has issues, your whole system is susceptible to failure. 

    About Electrical Panels

    Electrical panels are the main distribution point connecting service wires to exit wires. They link wires from the street to internal electrical wires that lead to your home’s electrical system. Usually, your electrical panels live in your garage, basement, or somewhere in a closet, discrete and away from daily household activity. In some cases, you may have various sub-panels that connect to a dedicated area such as the kitchen or bathroom.

    Upkeep and Maintenance on Electrical Panels

    Having too many things plugged into one outlet can eventually overload your electrical panels and lead to damage. To avoid this, try plugging things in one at a time or use multiple outlets instead. Resetting your breaker regularly can lead to damaged wires which can also affect your electrical panels. 

    With how important electricity is in your home it’s vital that you get regular maintenance checks on your electrical panels. Most experts agree that a good maintenance schedule is getting an inspection every 3 years, but if you can, annual maintenance is even better. 

    When to Repair or Replace

    There are several issues that can indicate an issue with your electrical panel. 

    • flickering lights
    • Tripping breakers
    • Low running appliances
    • overheating conducts and
    • crackling panel boxes

    are all signs that a repair of replacement is necessary. If your electrical panel is older (mid-20th century or prior) it is also a good idea to have it looked at, if not replaced. Though it may seem to work fine, oftentimes mid century electrical panels cannot keep up with modern electrical needs and are more prone to overload.

     When it comes to electricity it’s always safest to call a professional who is trained to handle these sorts of issues. This both ensures that you stay safe and that the problem is addressed completely and fixed properly the first time.

    Business responded quickly to my inquiry for service (thanks Renee!). Bobby arrived on time, explained everything he was doing, was quick, efficient and stuck to their quote, which was very reasonable BTW. I'm scheduling them for more services and wouldn't hesitate referring them to anyone.UPDATE! we had Lifetime return for dryer duct and vent cleaning, then for AC maintenance. Very happy both times and will continue to use their services. 5 thumbs up!👍👍👍👍👍

    What a great company filled with friendly, yet professional people who care about your job from the beginning to end. It starts with Renee who schedules the team to come out. The installers, Nick and Beau were excellent in checking in and communicating every step throughout the day. Electricians Tony and Alex had challenges with our system, but figured it out and voila! We have nice, cool, fresh air filling up our food bank!Then, here came David a few days later to service our furnace. Another excellent employee. We purchased the Premier Club Maintenance Plan and thrilled that we did!

    Nick, Beau & Tony did a great job installing our new AC & Furnace. Very professional, friendly & quick install. Nick had quite a job in such a tight space & did a terrific job. Beau even fixed a ducting problem after a previous contractor did a shoddy job. We so Appreciated their attention to detail. Great, professional, informative & fun team & we felt totally confident in their ability. We will definitely recommend them to friends who are looking for new AC. They even installed a much better & easier to use thermostat, set it up for our schedule. And the AC is so cool! Thanks Nick, Beau. & Tony.

    We called this company based off all the amazing google reviews and when we met with the company, we instantly knew we contacted the right people. They got us in for an estimate early, they scheduled us for our install the very next week (mind you it’s middle of summer when AC is WA is in high demand). The estimate was straight forward and they also looked into a few other heating questions we had regarding our home that was built a couple years that we think the builder didn’t install the best way.. I could go on and on. This seems like such a great company that truly cares about their people and their customers. We are excited to CHILL in our new AC that will be installed by this amazing company. 🙂 we have our install next week and I will submit another review after but let me tell you, from this point, we have had a great experience!! We worked with Robert who gave us our estimate and he is awesome!!
