Columbia CT Electrician Offers Free Safety Checks

National Electrical Safety month

Your local Columbia CT electrician is offering FREE electrical safety checks this month. Why? May is National Electrical Safety month. Each year, we provide this offer to our valued homeowners. We want everyone to protected from electrical dangers and fire hazards.

Every May, ESFI chooses a different topic to raise awareness about the importance of electrical safety.

The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is a non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety in the home, school, and workplace.  To commemorate National Electrical Safety Month, ESFI spearheads an annual campaign to educate key audiences about the steps that can be taken in order to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries, and property loss.


This year, they aim to help homeowners understand changes in the National Electrical Code [NEC.]

Electrical safety check

We have a lot of responsibilities in life. Is learning a huge book of code high up on your list? Maybe it is, but you don't have the time. If we had to become masters of everything there is to know, then none of us would have jobs and we'd all be pretty weighed down. That's where your local Columbia CT electrician comes in. Keeping up with all the changes in code is OUR thing. Let us do what we do best, so you can keep on doing what you do best - SAFELY.

Flickering lights? No power in one room? Our electrician will check the outlets, lighting and exposed wiring in your home for signs of damage or heat. Your panel will be checked for signs of water, rust, or rodent droppings. The connections will also be checked inside your circuit breaker for corrosion or crowding. At the end of the safety check, he'll let you know if he found anything that needs repair. He'll leave a list of recommendations and go over your pricing options. If you'd like a problem fixed, chances are the electrician can get it repaired the same day.

    I had Rapid Service come to my home because there was a saddle valve under my kitchen sink that was about to make a huge mess. I wasn't able to use my filtered water faucet until the repair was made. The technician fixed it AND had a great attitude while he worked. That is a rare thing lately...
