    Grounding Electrical Rewiring

    Lifetime

    Electrical grounding 

    Being grounded is important for all aspects of life, but especially for your electrical system. Luckily, electrical grounding is simple to understand once you have all the information. If your Seattle or Kirkland home was recently rewired, it’s important to make sure that any rewiring done in your home is properly grounded to keep you and your family safe.

    Why Electric Grounding is Important

    Making sure your home is grounded electrically is vital to safeguard against electric shock and fire risk. Electrical systems have both a positive and negative charge and must be grounded to keep things flowing properly. A grounding wire makes sure that, if any problems arise, the negative electrical current (which is hot) has a safe place to flow. If your negative current isn’t grounded, that electrical current could flow to pipes or framing in the house, cause a short circuit, and increase potential fire risk. 

    Important things to consider

    One thing that’s important to keep in mind is that your electrical system MUST be up to code for your area. If it’s not you could not only be facing an increased risk of fire, but possible fines as well. If you’ve recently rewired your home you also need to make sure that that current is grounded and up to code.

    How to tell if your wires are grounded

    An easy way to test if your wires are grounded is by using a circuit tester. Insert the circuit tester into your outlet. If the indicator light illuminates, that outlet is grounded. If not it either isn’t grounded or the wires are reserved.

    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!!
