Our Electricians are Licensed, Highly Skilled and Effective
When things go wrong with your home, there are a lot of items you can take upon yourself to accomplish, such as replacing a broken window, replacing roofing shingles, and doing other routine maintenance. But when it comes to your home’s electrical wiring, it is very important to ensure only a properly trained and licensed electrician will handle your electrical work.
Attempting home electrical repairs is a big no no-no for homeowners. DIY (do-it-yourself) electrical work puts your home insurance at risk. It also means that an unlicensed person is working on your home. This runs the risk of an incomplete job by using the wrong components, and potentially makes your home unsafe. Damages occur, fires erupt and electric appliances run the risk of being damaged beyond repair.
Residential homeowners who perform DIY and unlicensed electrical work also risk contact with electricity themselves. Being electrocuted can have severe, severe consequences.
Some of the problems from doing the electrical work yourself might not even be noticed for a long time. A poorly done job might only become evident when it is too late to repair the damage. If a circuit overloads, what could have been a blown fuse might just become something ten times worse because of unprofessional work.
Did you know that there are penalties for performing unlicensed electrical work? There have been cases where individuals have received penalties of $600,000.00 for breaches that have exposed others to risk of serious injury and death. If a penalty doesn’t sound bad enough, there have also been cases where individuals have received prison sentences of five years.
In short, when it comes to your home and the people you love, doing it yourself just isn’t worth it. Paying for a quality electrician who is licensed should be the only thing you consider when you need work done. All of these problems can be avoided when you call a licensed and professional CURRRENT LLC electrician for your Georgetown home.

Homeowner Electrical Insurance
In many instances, an electrician winds up doing maintenance and repairs that your homeowners insurance will cover. In those cases, your insurer will demand a trained and licensed home electrician. When it comes to getting the job done right and safely, a residential electrician from Current Services LLC is what you need.
Did you know that you can also keep your insurance premiums low by keeping up with electrical upgrades? It’s true! A thorough upgrade to your Georgetown home’s electrical systems can save you as much as 15% on your monthly premiums. Having out-of-date electrical systems in your home can even raise your payments! A fuse panel for example is a huge red flag to home inspectors, insurance providers and homebuyers alike.
When to Call a Residential Electrician for an Upgrade?
First off, if your Georgetown property is still running on a fuse panel, you should replace it with a breaker panel. Fuse panels are incompatible with modern life, and breaker panels are what every modern smart home needs. For example, fuse panels can handle only 100 amps, while modern breaker panels have 200 amps. 100 amps is fine for a family in the 1970s, but today a fuse panel simply cannot handle all the conveniences of modern Georgetown homes.
Otherwise, do your circuit breakers trip frequently? Do your lights dim when other appliances turn on? Do you find yourself using adapters and extension cords to create more outlets? If you said yes to any of these questions, maybe it is time for an upgrade.
FOUR REASONS TO LEAVE ELECTRICAL PROJECTS TO THE PROS
At Current Services LLC, we are very proud to serve the residents of Georgetown. One of the things that makes us most proud is the DIY and get-up-and-go work ethic that defines many of our residents. This hands-on approach is what makes Georgetown such a great place to live, but unfortunately, when this extends to residential electrical work, problems can start to occur. When it comes to wiring projects and repairs, electricity most definitely falls into the DDIY (don’t do it yourself) category. In fact, if you tamper with the wiring in your home, you are not only putting yourself at risk, you may also be breaking the law. With that in mind, here are four reasons why you really need to leave electrical projects to the pros like us at Current Services LLC:
- Don’t Troubleshoot What You Can’t Understand: If the outlets in your home are too hot to touch, there is a buzzing sound that you can’t quite figure out or your outlets are only working intermittently, then you really shouldn’t attempt to fix this problem on your own. Even the most intrepid of electric enthusiasts are unlikely to possess the skill and expertise to take care of this work properly. It is important to remember that a problematic outlet can pose a real fire hazard which could trigger a serious issue for your home.
- Don’t Install a Hot Tub—It’s Too Complex: If we at Current Services LLC had a dollar for every time we tried to fix an electrical problem that was caused by faulty wiring, then we would probably be able to retire to the dream beach-house in the Caribbean pretty soon! The fact of the matter is that hot tubs are far too complex to tinker with and by law they require a ground fault circuit interrupter. Similarly, installation is also typically too complicated for someone without the appropriate skill in wiring to carry out. Finally, you need a manual disconnect device, and this is also a tricky installation that needs a lot of expertise to get right.
- Installing Smoke Detectors Should Be Left to the Pros: Similar to hot tubs and more general electrical work, installing fire safety equipment in your home requires expertise that the average homeowner simply doesn’t have. What many people don’t know is that hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors require expertise in safely running cabling and wires to the alarms, while also connecting it all to your breaker panel. Any mistake along the way could end up putting you and your family in grave danger. That is why you need to leave it to the professionals!
- Upgrading Switches Is Risky: Adding or upgrading electrical switches to your home is extremely dangerous and should be left to a trained and certified team of professionals for optimal results. You wouldn’t try to change your car’s engine on your own, nor should you attempt to install or upgrade electrical switches without first enlisting the help of professionals!
