Why Should I Get an Upgrade to My Wiring?

Leaving outdated wires in your home is putting the safety of your loved ones at risk.

When living in a home, the safety of properly running electricity is of high importance. Showing the initiative and scheduling wiring upgrades and repairs in Apex, NC, will prevent future fires from happening. If you live in an older house, you stand the chance of having much older or outdated wiring. Old wiring will also more than likely not be up to code. However, if you let our certified electricians come and perform wiring upgrades, you will be left feeling safe and have peace of mind knowing your wiring was handled with care.

Signs Your Home’s Wiring Needs Repair

If you don’t know when the last time it was you had wiring upgrades or repairs in your Apex, NC, home, then it’s time to get in touch with your local electricians for an inspection. Letting one of our professionals come out and inspect your home is the best way to make sure you and your family continue to stay safe. It’s best to schedule this appointment before you start experiencing electrical issues. However, we understand if it doesn’t cross your mind until something doesn’t seem right. Watch out for these warning signs that indicate your home needs wiring repairs:
  • Constantly Tripping Breakers:
    If your circuit breaker often trips or your fuses repeatedly blow out, you’re most likely dealing with overloaded circuits. Your electrician may need to perform wiring upgrades.
  • Tingling Sensation:
    Have you noticed that you feel a tingling sensation when you touch an appliance? This is a clear indication that your home’s wiring is loose or damaged and should be repaired right away.
  • Flickering or Dimming Lights:
    You may have thought this was just a sign of dying lightbulbs, but it could actually indicate that your house’s wiring is outdated or damaged.
  • A Burning Smell:
    Be wary of burning or smoky odors coming from an outlet or appliance. These odors mean fire damage has already begun, and you should contact a professional electrician immediately. They can make quick work of repairing old wiring to save your home from a potential electrical fire.
  • Warm, Discolored, or Sparking Outlets:
    These signs indicate that your home’s wiring has been damaged in some way and is releasing heat that could cause severe damage to your home.
  • Two-Prong Ungrounded Outlets:
    If you have two-prong outlets throughout your house, this is a strong indication that your wiring is outdated. You’ll want to hire an electrician to upgrade your outlets as soon as possible to avoid electrical shocks and other issues.
  • No Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI): If the outlets in your kitchen, bathrooms, and other areas exposed to moisture are not GFCI outlets, your family is at risk of electrical shocks, and your electrical system is more likely to overheat. Protect your home and your family by having a licensed electrician upgrade your outlets to GFCI outlets.

It's not often you run into a company that operates the way that AstroWatt does. From the beginning, they were responsive and extremely professional. When installing an EV charger they handle the permit and inspection which is not something all companies do. I ended getting quotes from a few electrical companies and AstroWatt was the best quote. While you may be able to find cheaper if you decide to go with a handyman or smaller company the professionalism and quality of service as well as transparency pays for itself. My technician Adam was very knowledgeable and made sure I had no unanswered questions at every step of the process. I highly recommend this company and will be using them in the future. Thanks for providing great customer service!

I worked with three gentlemen at thus company as well as their scheduling team. Everyone was friendly, positive, and easy to work with. They showed up quickly, explained my issues very well along with the capacity available on my home. They installed an EV charger for us and it was extremely tidy work. They also fixed a poorly backstabbed lightswitch which was a huge headache for us.They were also super good with our 100 lb pyrenees and put me totally at ease with her being around. They tried to upsell me a little bit but that's honestly just how contractors work. They get limited facetime and they want as much work as they can get so I don't hold that against them. The work they did was phenomenal, their attitudes were good and they were prompt. I don't know what else you can ask for.Incidentally they also sent us brownies afterward and I gotta tell you that is a heavyweight move. The brownie is was solid. Ate it with chocolate milk. Would recommend.

I want to give a huge thanks to Chris, Alex and Zach from AstroWatt for coming out to upgrade our service. From the very beginning it was a great experience. With such an old house, there was a lot to consider. Chris came out to give us a quote and spent time going over all of the upgrades, options and packages. He took time to look at all of the concerns we had and was extremely thorough. We didn't have to wait long for the installation, with Alex and Zach coming out the following week. They arrived on time, and were setup and ready to go when the power company pulled up. Both guys introduced themselves, told me what to expect, and answered all of my questions along the way. After the job was complete (same day) we chatted for a bit about their work. They really do love what they do, and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate to use AstroWatt again when we do some additional upgrades down the line. Big thanks Alex and Zach, you guys are pros.

We had a great experience with Tom and Alex! We have never had an electrician as good as AstroWatt. We have used them for residential and commercial needs. They were professional and on time. When we were not satisfied with our original quote price, they were able to readjust the quote and take care of our needs with a quote we were comfortable with. They were concerned more with safety than getting our business and provided recommendations that would make our house safe. Alex (who did the electrical work) was very knowledgeable, reliable, professional, and kind. They have a customer for life with us. We would recommend them highly. You will not be disappointed.

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!
