Outlet Repairs

While your outlets and switches may not be the most noticeable electrical parts of your home, many homeowners do not realize how much power they have or how hazardous outlets and switches can be. Since you use power every day for all of your lights, HVAC systems, and appliances, if outlets and switches are not properly maintained, it can be dangerous. If your outlet or light switch malfunctions or dies, there could be a much larger electrical issue. Not to mention, repairing an outlet is a complex process requiring significant training and expertise.

Repairing an outlet or light switch shouldn’t be stressful for you and your family! With one phone call to AstroWatt Electric, our professionals in outlet installation in Apex, NC, will figure out the issue requiring outlet repairs and have your electrical system up and running at full capacity in no time.

Safety Tips for Broken Switches and Outlets

If you notice any problems with your switches or outlets, call for electrical service and new outlet installation in Apex, NC, right away. In the meantime, follow these safety tips from our qualified outlet installers and repair specialists:

  • Check to make sure outlets and switch plates are not unusually hot to the touch. If they are, immediately unplug cords from these outlets and do not use the switches.
  • Look for discoloration as another indication of potentially dangerous heat buildup at the connectors.
  • Check that all outlet and switch cover plates are in good condition so that no wiring is exposed. Replace any missing, cracked or broken cover plates.
  • Be sure to cover unused outlets with safety caps.

Why Are Your Switches or Outlets Heating Up?

Looking after the electrical components in your home may be an extra responsibility, but making sure your family is safe is important. If you notice your switches or outlets heating up, it’s a sign that something may be wrong with your electrical system. If you notice hot outlets, these are a few reasons that may be causing the issue:
  • Overloaded Circuits:
    When your outlets are struggling to power all of the plugged-in appliances, the circuit may become overworked or hot to the touch.
  • Loose or Damaged Wiring:
    If there is a buildup of heat or sparks when plugging up appliances, then this is a sign that you need a new outlet.
  • Dim Switches:
    When switches are getting ready to burn out, they burn hotter than normal. There are manufacturer guidelines on acceptable temperatures. If you notice or suspect that the heat exceeds this temperature, call us for outlet installation in Apex, NC, as soon as possible.

When my dishwasher suddenly stopped working because of an electrical issue, I contacted this company based on their stellar reviews alone. Let me tell you that they absolutely did not disappoint. From the friendly service received by Crystal (sp?) on the phone, to the high-tech appointment texts, to the in-person customer service, the entire experience was top-notch. Both Tom (a co-owner, I believe) and Patrick were friendly, great at explaining detail & setting expectations, and skilled at completing the work quickly. They even wore shoe coverings and cleaned up after themselves.Having never used an electrician before, I can’t really speak to value, but the end price seemed very reasonable to me and I appreciated how multiple service tiers were offered. I now have a properly wired dishwasher, up-to-code outlets, and a whole house surge protector. I plan to only use this company for any future needs. Highly recommend!

Happy to report the 5 star ratings for Alternate Current Solutions are well deserved. Great experience every step of the process. Working with Crystal to schedule the appointments, Craig on the estimate, and Chris completing the work. It was all Customer First, on time, and as promised. Exceeded my expectations and they set a high bar for other contractors. Will definitely use them again, and would not hesitate to recommend them to others for electrical work.

Christian was fabulous! My dad and I attempted installing a chandelier with a ceiling medallion on our own and we learned the hard way it is better to get the experts involved. Christian arrived on time, was super polite, helpful in explaining what he was doing and what had gone wrong before. They were able to get someone to my home within 72 hours of me calling them so I am super appreciative of their quick work and prompt response in scheduling my appointment. Thank you for your help. I highly recommend Christian for any of your electrical needs and will be reaching back out when I want additional lights installed.

This is the best electrical company I have ever dealt with. Alex was awesome! He assessed my problem and provided me with a quote and completed the job to my satisfaction. He was very courteous and was very patient with my questions. Also, the scheduling was quick and I didn’t have wait forever for someone to be sent to address my issues.

From introduction to installation, very professional and polite. Wore their shoe covers to protect my floor without me having to ask. Went over the service to ensure I understood what to expect from the service and the pricing. The most superb service I’ve had in a long time. Installation was quick and easy. Awesome Job Christian and Wes!! Thank you !!

Matt and Wes did an outstanding job of not only replacing my entire Electrical Panel, they also were great guests, very polite and professional and even showed all my pets love to make it a peaceful visit! They were quick to fix everything, walked me through everything the did at the end and answered all my questions with ease. Even during the diagnosis, one of the owners came to my house to help assess what needed to be done and what would be the best option for me and my budget. Highly recommend ACS.

I was impressed by how responsive they were. I submitted a request form late at night and had a call from them first thing in the morning. Within the hour, they had arrived to provide an estimate. The work was completed less than 24 hours later.The service was timely, which is remarkable when so many service providers are booked months out. The crew was over-the-top kind, never mansplained to my wife (ha!), finished with their work quickly, and cleaned up thoroughly. We've had no issues with their installation, and would be likely to reach out to them for work again.

Excellent service and business! Lisa(?) was very helpful on the phone, and Tom was quick to come out and give us a reasonable quote for installing 4 ceiling fans and a few switches. Alex and Colby then did a great job with the installation. Very happy with the work! We'll be back in the future when we decide on some new light fixtures, and any other work that comes up!
