Honolulu Electrical Solutions FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

We know that you will have a plethora of questions regarding our services and since we try to beseech you to get an expert electrician to conduct all your electrical installations, checks, and repairs. Here you can check out some of the most frequently asked questions and their responses.

HOW MUCH WILL I PAY FOR AN ELECTRICAL JOB?

We have been in this niche for several years and we have learned that our consumers lean towards experts who give a specific quote for the work depending on the current electrical problem. A good number of the quotes we offer through phone are subject to variations after the expert analyzes the job critically. We do not like how this turns out to customers.

By allowing us to check and diagnose the problem at hand personally, you will get a more accurate picture of how much you will pay for the job before it commences. Contact us today for a precise quote on your electrical needs.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NORMAL BREAKERS AND ARC FAULT BREAKERS?

The work of a breaker is to keep wires in your place from being overloaded. All breakers have been made to switch off automatically if their circuit receives huge loads or when there is a short circuit. An arc fault breaker serves an additional role, which is to point out arcing in circuits. Arcing is the sparking that takes place between two faulty conductors and looking at teh temperatures this can get to, it poses a fire risk. Arc welders use an electrical arc to weld metal, which brings to perspective how damaging it can be. A normal breaker might not have the capability to detect arcing since it does not always get to the high load levels needed to trip a breaker, but an Arc Fault breaker can detect all these problems and break the circuit before it leads to a fire. Arc fault breakers need to be assessed monthly to make sure that they are in proper working condition.

IS ALUMINUM WIRING SAFE OR DOES IT POSE A RISK OF FIRE?

Aluminum wiring was utilized back in the 60s and 70s in Hawaii and the surrounding mainlands. It is not dangerous to have it in your home. The caveat with this wiring comes with problematic terminations occurring either in a switch, receptacle, light fixture of equipment. Provided that the conductors will expand and retract and the oxidation properties of aluminum, it is not out of the picture for heat to be produced at the sections where it is not terminated correctly.

A vital problem with aluminum wiring is that while it might all look perfect from the outside, it could be damaged in the inside which poses a fire risk. If you feel that the aluminum wiring in your home is faulty, ensure that an expert comes over to inspect it for you to be sure.

WHAT IS KNOB AND TUBE WIRING?

This kind of wiring is also known as open wiring and it was used between the 1900s and 1940s. They got their name from the porcelain fittings that supported cables that run through wooden structures. If they are not interfered with and left as they were installed in the first place, the chances that the knob and tube wiring will be completely safe are high. There are a few things that you need to know about them. If you have this kind of wiring in your house, then only allow a licensed expert to inspect it.

Here are some of the significant aspects you should understand about this kind of wiring.

The insulation utilized in this kind of wiring dries out after some time, thus becoming stiff and brittle. This leads to some cracks in the insulation which fall away from the conductor, leaving it exposed, thus creating some shock and risk of fire.

Since the knob and tube wiring in a house has been implemented for over 70 years, then the probability that it has never been interfered with over time is very small. After the systems have been modified, regardless of the intention, the part that was changed should be replaced with modern wiring.

Knob and tube wiring was put up a time where the demand for electrical devices in homes and the associated circuitry were meant to attain this threshold. Today, houses have more electronic devices, and thus electricity. The structure of any house during the early 1900s can not live up to the demand of the modern-day devices. This implies that such old circuits, considering the fact that they were weak from the point of installation, are susceptible to overloads that can cause fires.

Knob and tube wiring was implemented with single conductors that had hot and neutral lines. They had no grounding. Most houses have witnessed rapid changes in the circuitry to match these dynamic times, and they could have been shifted from the legacy ungrounded to the modern grounded ones. If your house has three-prong receptacles put on the underground circuits, then you get yourself in a scenario where an electronic device that needs a ground line for safety is put into power that does not have this feature, thus creating the risk of shock.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CHANGE A FUSE PANEL?

Note that we always give a quote for the cost of the job. For us to give an accurate one, we have to point out the panel’s location. This is informed by the things that come into the picture when figuring out the amount to be charged for changing a fuse panel. Things such as the panel’s location, the accessibility of the system, the size of the feeder cable and probably most importantly, whether the work will be about repairing or replacing the panel are all crucial factors that are used to assess the cost of a job. It is not possible to give a precise quote if we do not know all this.

WHAT IS A FULL HOUSE SURGE PROTECTION AND IS IT NECESSARY?

Houses are becoming more sophisticated and this has led to more electronic devices in a single household. We have become attached to these electronics and the ability to charge them easily makes us even prefer them as we can use them without connecting them directly to power. Whole House Surge Protection gives all the electrical equipment in your house cover against both internal and external surges. It functions more or less like a top-quality power extension that is bought for systems and they protect all the devices rather than one.

This way, the Whole House Surge Protection will keep all your devices safe including the freezer, coffee maker, dishwasher, and any other device that does not come with an inbuilt surge protector. We advise that all homes should have a full house surge protection installed to ensure that the electronic devices are kept safe to cut down the risk of shocks and fire perils.

How DO I SAVE POWER ENERGY IN THE OFFICE?

The simplest and most efficient way to do this is to make sure that the lighting system is efficient. You have a couple of options to look at when trying to implement this including retrofitting the current fluorescent fixtures or replacing them with modern This could entail changing high bay metal halide and sodium fixtures with more energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs, or also enhancing lighting levels and reducing wastage with LED. We can offer you recommendations and avail all the incentives at your disposal when you are pondering how to improve your lighting at the office.

WHAT IS A GFCI RECEPTACLE?

This is a kind of receptacle made to keep you safe from electric shocks when utilizing your devices close to water. These fixtures can easily note when the power starts to digress and go to where it should not, thus cutting off the power in the event of a problem. This explains why the codes stipulate that these fixtures should be installed in kitchens, outdoor areas, and bathrooms among others. One thing that people are not very conversant with is that the receptacles are meant to be assessed each month to make sure that they are working optimally. This can be done using a test button. It disconnects the device which can be turned on by the reset tab. It is seen to be working properly if it can be connected and disconnected and it should be changed if either of the test and reset buttons does not work properly.

CAN I JUST GO DIY WITH ELECTRICAL JOBS?

Most places will let people who own homes to do their own electrical jobs as long as they have the correct permits and the work done is assessed by the relevant authorities. It is vital to put your family health and safety into consideration before taking electrical jobs. We always recommend that you contact a pro and let them take care of the job unless you have the right training and skills to handle it in the right way.

It is important to make one thing crystal clear:
