E.H. Williams and Sons provides maintenance
programs and 24-hour emergency service for all types of residential and
commercial electrical systems. From flickering lights to
electrical service failure, no matter what the problem we can help.
As you know, the most common cause of
structure fires is the electrical system. Yet, the electrical
system in most structures is the most neglected system. We all
tend to take it for granted that since it worked properly yesterday, it
will work properly today. Nothing could be further from the truth!
A simple way to understand what happens
in those wires in your walls, is to think of them as pipes. Yes,
pipes like the ones that carry your water to your spigot. Think of
the electrons that flow in the wire as the water that flows in your
pipes and the switches as spigots.
Have you ever closed a faucet rapidly and heard the
pipes in your water system bang or crack? That is
exactly what happens in your electrical system every time you turn a
device on or off. Not as severely as the water pipes, but never
the less it happens, "every time." And each time that happens,
stress is applied to the electrical connections. From years of
this happening, the screws and connectors that hold your wiring and
devices together begin to loosen. When wires become loose heat is
generated and if not corrected one of two things will occur. The
best case scenario is, the wire burns off and the device stops
operating. The worse case scenario is the heat generated
becomes too intense and a fire will occur.
This is why electrical maintenance is so
important. The best and worse case scenarios can be avoided by a
routine maintenance plan. Through our maintenance program, we can
identify and correct any problem within your electrical system before it
becomes a major problem - and provide you peace of mind.
