When it comes to our homes, most of us don’t think twice about ensuring that our smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers are working and up to date. We keep our lint trays clean, empty filters and generally do our best to keep our homes safe. But what about our electrical?
We often come across wiring in a home or building that has not been completed by a certified professional, and in many, if not most of these cases, we find things such as: loose connections, which causes arcing – an extremely dangerous hazard in your home; undersized or incorrect types of wiring being used for their intended application; old aluminum wiring which is no longer to code; and over-loaded and abused wall panels that are on the verge of blowing. In situations such as old aluminum wiring and wiring that has not been installed by an insured professional, in the event of a disaster, your insurance will not cover you. These are not only serious safety hazards in your home, but could be financially devastating.
The good news is, is that it only takes a few hours of work to see if your home is in safe working order electrically, or if it would needs some upgrades in order to make it safe. So in the same way you make sure your home is fire safe, we encourage you to take the time to make sure that it is electrically safe. Give us a call today to learn more and schedule your safety check today: 778-471-6625.
Did you know that we are certified and skilled in the installation of grid-tie and off-grid solar power systems? This incredible home we had the privilege of working on is a technological marvel. Utilizing full solar coverage, the home, during sunny months, generates far more energy than it consumes. Combined with an array of batteries, this home was designed for energy independence. You can see more pictures of the project here: http://roohamelectric.ca/project/tapping-solar/
We can help you get there sooner by saving you money on your monthly energy bills. How you might wonder? Converting your bulbs in the house to LED, offsetting your hydro bill with some grid tie solar and making sure your appliances have a good energy star rating are just a few options. Give us a call to learn more. Let us help you get away from it all, sooner.

January seems so long ago already doesn’t it? But for just a minute, think back though to the start of the new year. Did you set any goals or resolutions for 2019? There’s a good chance, if you’re like most North Americans, you probably did and they likely fell into the: fitness/heath, financial, business and person categories. But what about home goals? We believe that setting goals that will help you achieve a home you are both comfortable in and proud of, are some of the most important goals you can make. Why? Because your home is where you start and finish each day (most of the time anyway). It’s where you feel most comfortable to be yourself, where you raise or spend time with your family, spend time with friends, and live much of your life. So it only makes sense that it should be a place you love being in; which sometimes takes some changes and improvements.
Lighting is one of the easiest and most effective ways to change and improve a space. We’ve said this before, but we will say it again: imagine being at a hockey game with only pot lights to see the action by; or imagine trying to have a romantic dinner under the hum and shine of florescent lights. Lighting can make or break a mood and experience. And the experience of your home should be comfortable. We can help you light up those dark corners where there have never been lights before, add wall outlets so that you can use beautiful table lamps instead of your overhead lights all the time and more. We can also help you with minor electrical upgrades for more than just lights. Whatever electrical home improvements you may have on your goal list for 2019, we can help.
Give us a call for a free consultation and let us help you achieve your home goals this year.
When was the last time you went to the movie theater? …That’s what we thought. Most of the time, most of us would rather skip the lines and expensive popcorn and watch a flick at home. But still, there is something about that movie theater experience isn’t there? The big screen, encompassing sound, those comfy seats. O.k. well, maybe not the seats.
Did you know that we can help you bring that movie theatre experience home? Whether you are building or renovating a space to create your own theatre room, simply looking to add surround sound to your current space, or even just get your t.v. up on the wall for a better viewing experience, we can help with that.
And please let us help – no one wants this to happen to them.
