You notice something about your system, and think ‘maybe I should call the electricians in because this looks like something they could fix’

It is leaking some type of fluid, there are sparks flying or it has an unusual noise. This is one time when you will not be better off to try and fix it yourself. Here are reasons why you should call an electrician: 

  • Electrical work can be dangerous.Using a faulty electrical system could result in serious injury or even death. The last thing you want to do is get hurt trying to repair something that should have been fixed by a professional in the first place.It may seem like a small problem now, but it may lead to larger problems later on. 
  • A small issue with your electrical system could mean big trouble down the road if left unattended. 
  • An electrician is trained in diagnosing these issues and they know how to address them before they become bigger problems. They know what safety precautions need to be taken before working on your system so that they don’t cause any further damage while fixing your current problem.

Outdated systems are never good news

if your electrical panels or other components in your home are getting on in years, it’s time to consider preventive maintenance. This can include having an electrician replace damaged parts and/or test circuits for safety. Either way, if you’re going to go about it yourself, make sure you know what you’re doing—and wear protective gear. There are a lot of dangers involved in electrical work, from shocks to burns to electrocution!

Simple things like replacing broken down light bulbs could save you hundreds

If you have replaced your light bulbs more than three times in a year, you need to call us. It’s not necessarily a sign of incompetence on your part. When you don’t change your light bulbs as often as they need changing, you are putting out extra energy and putting unnecessary wear on other pieces of equipment. For example, if one or two lights go out in your house or apartment, it is likely that it is just a bad bulb. However, if many lights go out over time, it could be due to an electrical problem that needs attention immediately.

Equipment keeps breaking down. How do we keep doing the same job? It’s because we do preventative maintenance.

Proper preventative maintenance can cut your operating costs, increase safety and improve efficiency. But it doesn’t always happen. Many companies don’t do it. They think it costs too much or isn’t worth their time. To them we say: you’re wrong!

Here are four ways that preventative maintenance can save you money and make your job easier in many different ways. And there is a way to do it without breaking your budget!

So if you need an electrician, call us at Avino Electric Services to get preventative maintenance done right away. We will come out every quarter and make sure everything is working as well as possible while also teaching our employees how to spot problems before they occur so we can fix them before they become big problems.

Fixing or replacing an item earlier than necessary saves money in the long run

A faulty electrical component may seem to work fine at first, but as it wears down over time, it can turn into a major problem that could be difficult or costly to fix. For example, a faulty electrical component in an air conditioner may appear fine for months but then start to cause problems when you least expect it—like during a heat wave. Fixing or replacing a part before it fails is often significantly less expensive than repairing that same part once it has failed.
