Our Solutions & Processes

Faulty Wiring

Electrical wiring systems that are not functioning properly, whether due to poor installation, wear and tear, or other factors can pose a serious safety risk because it can cause shorts, sparks, and even electrical fires in extreme cases. Faulty wiring might not always be immediately visible, which is why it’s important to have your wiring periodically inspected by a qualified electrician to ensure that it’s in good condition.

Old wiring is another issue that homeowners may face. Depending on the age of your home, your wiring system may be outdated. Old wiring can be especially dangerous, as it may not be able to keep up with the electrical demands of modern appliances. Additionally, old wiring may not have the proper insulation or grounding, which can also pose a safety risk. Replacing old wiring can be expensive, but it’s essential for maintaining a safe and functional electrical system in your home.

Diagnosis & Repair

Diagnosis & Repair involves checking and fixing electrical systems that are causing problems and could range from a simple patch-up to a complete overhaul of the entire system.

To identify the root cause of the issue, electrical diagnosis utilizes various testing equipment. This could include using multimeters, circuit testers, and oscilloscopes to help pinpoint what’s going wrong. Once the problem is identified, there are a number of approaches that can be used to repair it. 

Proficiency in electrical diagnosis and repair requires a solid familiarity with wiring diagrams, understanding of electrical codes and regulations, and a broad knowledge of electrical systems as a whole. Safety is also of utmost importance when undertaking these repairs, as electrical systems can be incredibly dangerous if not handled with care.

Cable Networking

Electrical wiring systems that are not functioning properly, whether due to poor installation, wear and tear, or other factors can pose a serious safety risk because it can cause shorts, sparks, and even electrical fires in extreme cases. Faulty wiring might not always be immediately visible, which is why it’s important to have your wiring periodically inspected by a qualified electrician to ensure that it’s in good condition.

Old wiring is another issue that homeowners may face. Depending on the age of your home, your wiring system may be outdated. Old wiring can be especially dangerous, as it may not be able to keep up with the electrical demands of modern appliances. Additionally, old wiring may not have the proper insulation or grounding, which can also pose a safety risk. Replacing old wiring can be expensive, but it’s essential for maintaining a safe and functional electrical system in your home.

Electricity Overuse

Electricity overuse refers to the excessive and unnecessary consumption of electricity beyond what is required for daily needs. It is a major concern as it leads to higher energy bills and puts a strain on the electricity grid, which can result in power outages and even blackouts. The use of electronic devices such as TVs, gaming consoles, and computers can contribute significantly to electricity overuse. Other factors that can lead to electricity overuse include the use of inefficient lighting systems, air conditioners, and electric heaters.

Overuse of electricity not only has economic implications but also has detrimental effects on the environment. Burning fossil fuels to produce electricity generates greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change. To combat electricity overuse, it is essential to adopt energy-efficient practices such as turning off electronic devices when not in use, using energy-efficient lighting, and using natural ventilation and cooling instead of air conditioning.

Electrical Security

Electrical security refers to the measures taken to ensure the safe and reliable operation of electrical systems and equipment. This includes protecting against electrical hazards such as shock and electrocution, preventing damage to equipment and infrastructure due to power surges, and guarding against unauthorized access and misuse of sensitive electrical data.

Electrical security encompasses a range of practices, including proper grounding and insulation, regular maintenance and inspections, installing surge protectors and other protective devices, following safe work procedures, and using equipment and systems in accordance with manufacturer recommendations and safety standards.

Effective electrical security is essential for preventing accidents, reducing downtime and equipment damage, and safeguarding sensitive data and operations from cyberthreats.

Generator Installation

Generator installation is the process of setting up a backup generator system in a home or business to provide power during power outages or other emergency situations.

The process involves determining the appropriate type and size of generator for the particular application, preparing the site with proper electrical equipment and connections, and installing the generator itself. In addition to the generator, other components such as a transfer switch, fuel source, and exhaust system may also be installed. 

Proper installation is critical to ensure safety and reliability of the system, as well as compliance with local building codes and regulations. It is recommended to consult with a licensed electrician or generator installer to ensure proper installation and maintenance of the generator system. Straight Up Electrical is here to handle all of these needs for you.

Straight Up- an excellent local team that was able to assess and efficiently fix a wiring mess that I helped make. When a junior electrician was temporarily stumped with my situation, co-owner Ryan was over within minutes to save the day. He gave me part purchasing advice and quickly sorted the two confusing sets of three-way switches.

When we bought our home, we discovered a light switch that didn't seem to control anything. Matthew knew right away that it was supposed to control switched outlets in our formal living room. He knew exactly what was done wrong, and had it fixed in no time. I highly recommend him!
