The electrical panel is one of the main reasons why you’re able to operate your appliances and lights with ease. The electrical panel is responsible for directing power to the various electrical devices in your home and ensures that the electrical current is at a stable voltage. Because of its function, it’s in your best interest to keep it in good shape.
However, even newly installed electrical panels can experience several issues and be the source of any of the following problems:
- The lights dim or fluctuate whenever you use other electrical devices
- Circuit breakers frequently trip – even if your lights or appliances are switched off
- The breakers are loose or showing signs of damage
- The breakers are hot to the touch
If you suspect that your electrical panel is in poor condition, it’s unwise to attempt to fix the damage on your own. Instead, you should contact Cook Home Services so we can properly service your electrical panel.

Replacing Smoke Detectors
One of the best precautions you can get for fire safety is smoke detectors because of its ability to warn you the second smoke has been detected. Smoke detectors give you ample time to locate and put out the fire before it can spread or engulf your entire property.
It’s important that the smoke detectors installed in your property remain functional since fire-related disasters occur unexpectedly. Unfortunately, smoke detectors experience problems over time, just like other appliances, so it’s in your best interest to keep them up to date and regulations.
Most smoke detectors operate off your property’s power but also have a backup battery – for emergency situations. But, after time, the backup batteries get old and you’ll start to notice your smoke detectors beeping and warning you of a problem. In most cases, you just need to change the battery so the smoke detector has reliable backup power, but it’s often more affordable and convenient to get a smoke detector replacement or upgrade instead.
Whole Home Surge Protectors
A typical power surge usually happens in milliseconds but the damage it inflicts can last much longer. Even if you don’t notice it, the disaster can fry your building’s entire wiring system, as well as your electrical devices and appliances. In order to avoid these problems, it’s crucial that the electrical current inside your property remains stable.
One device that helps is the whole home surge protector because of its ability to control the amount of power that’s flowing into your home and protects your electrical equipment from sudden power surges. However, the surge protectors can experience issues over time and become inefficient.
If a home surge protector isn’t functioning properly, you won’t be able to protect your property from electrical problems such as:
- Electrical rust
- Electrical fires
- Damaged electrical components
