Lighting upgrades and changes
Do you have a different style or vision for your home than you did when you first bought it? Then don’t overlook how a revamped lighting scheme can accent your new aesthetic. Simple upgrades, such as adding recessed lighting over a fireplace mantle, can transform your living space into something new and exciting.
Lighting upgrades can make a huge difference in other areas of your home as well. For example, bathroom lighting needs to be positioned the right way to help a homeowner with their morning routine. Bedroom lighting should help you relax and prepare to wind down. Home office lighting should encourage productivity while garage lighting is another beast entirely.
Regardless of your current home lighting setup, we’re here to provide you with the upgrades and changes you deserve and need.
Remodeling and home additions
Are you planning to add a new area to your home? Perhaps you’re going to expand a bedroom or bathroom or enclose your back patio space to make it useable all year long. Whatever the nature of the home remodel in your future, residential electrician services from Yoder Electric are the answer you need.
We’ll work with you to help plan your electrical grid, review your current capacity, make recommendations for any panel upgrades, and help with your wiring layout. Plus, we offer what many call “Design-Build” projects. This type of residential electrician services partners a homeowner with a member of our team to ensure your home is safely designed to comply with all modern electrical requirements. In addition, we can provide both the design and installation of all of your electrical components.
Electric service panels
The heart of every home electrical system is its panel. One of our residential electrician services is the installation, service, and repair of this unit. For new constructions, we’ll make certain that your electric service panel is set up and installed correctly, having enough breakers for your home and routing each of your appliances to the appropriate slot.
Of course, some homes still have older fuse boxes, many of which were never designed to handle the modern home’s power demands. Many panels installed between the 1950s and 1980s are outdated, and some even fire hazards. This can be especially troublesome if a homeowner installs a new hot tub, pool, or air conditioner but lacks the right kind of electric service panel necessary for the right kind of power for that system.
If your existing panel is insufficient, then we’ll help you update and replace this with a newer panel that meets your needs and can future-proof your electrical grid for years to come. If you’d like a quote for an electrical service panel upgrade, give us a quick call and we’ll have an electrical estimator come to you. Our estimators can provide you with a price on the spot for the majority of electric panel changes or electric panel upgrades. In addition, if your upgrade is due to a new pool or hot tub, we can provide you with an estimate on site as well.
And as a part of our troubleshooting services, if you need the assistance of a Columbus area residential electrician, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll repair any problems we encounter during our inspection of your electric system.
Everyone knows that winter is coming. Even if the season just ended, it’ll come around again soon.
If you’ve lived in Ohio long enough to experience our often intense spring or summer thunderstorms, then you’ve probably experienced at least one power outage. Depending on the extent of the damage, it may take hours or even days for AEP to restore power to your home.
Backup generators are the solution you’re looking for. Our team is fully equipped to handle the installation, service, and repair of residential backup generators. In addition, it’s often far safer to trust a licensed residential electrician for this type of service. For starters, a residential electrician can help you make the correct choice on the right kind of generator for your home. After all, not all homeowners have the same type of power needs.
Second, a licensed residential electrician can ensure that your home’s power grid is wired correctly. The last thing you want during an emergency is for your necessities to short out because they were incorrectly wired into your generator.
Solar panels are a great way to reduce your reliance on the local power grid while also contributing to green initiatives that help to reduce our collective carbon footprint. Solar panel installation can take many forms, ranging from a series of panels lining your home’s roof to a small field of panels in your backyard.
Once a homeowner decides to install solar panels, they will also need to hire a residential electrician. That way, they can be confident that the installation was performed correctly. It will also help ensure that ongoing maintenance and service as well as potential repair concerns can be swiftly addressed. Our team can help with each of these, installing your solar panel system from the ground up, maintaining an existing setup and ensuring that it works as intended, and repairing any problems that may have appeared with your system.
Electric car charger
The future of vehicle transportation has finally arrived. For years, we’ve heard about the coming shortage of fossil fuel. As a nonrenewable resource, gas, and oil will eventually run out.
Some vehicle manufacturers have developed an extensive “Supercharger” network, though it’s impractical to use one of these each day. After all, they’re often located along highways — not near residential neighborhoods.
That’s where residential installation of electric car chargers comes in. With a Level 1 or Level 2 home EV charger, you can “fuel up” your electric car or truck overnight. Most commonly, residential EV chargers are installed in a garage so that you can plug them in once you arrive home.
Our team can help you decide which type of charger is right for you and install it in the best location for ease of use and access. In addition, we offer ongoing maintenance service of existing home EV systems, and as a residential electrician serving Central Ohio, we can repair any and all problems with an electric car charger setup.
Hot Tubs and Pools
One of the most luxurious home features is a hot tub or pool. It provides a place to escape, rejuvenate, and unwind after a long or challenging day.
Our team can help with all aspects of installing the electrical components of your hot tub or pool. Often, this involves installing a sub panel, completing the bonding of the pool for the pool installers, and hooking up pumps or heaters.
Beyond that, we also work with homeowners to install low-voltage lighting transformers so that their backyard oasis not only looks great but provides a sense of safety and security without being overly intrusive.
Residential Electrician Services F.A.Q.
In our many years of providing residential electrician services to Franklin County and the surrounding regions, we’ve been asked many questions. Whether via phone or email communique, here are the most common questions we hear and a quick summary of their answers.
Do you offer Design-Build projects?
Yes, we offer Design-build projects. Often, it’s easier to work with a contractor or homeowner from the ground up, developing a plan, budget, and system of implementation that maximizes everyone’s time and money.
What areas of electrical troubleshooting are you qualified in?
The easiest answer to this question is simple: Yoder Electric is qualified to work and troubleshoot all kinds of residential electrical problems. From simple issues such as a malfunctioning GFCI receptacle to lights that won’t turn on to the ongoing service and maintenance of solar panel systems and everything in between. Simply put, as a team of licensed residential electricians, there is no problem we cannot handle.
How do you handle quotes? Can I get a “ballpark” quote for your services? No two residential electrician service calls are alike. We believe in fairness, integrity, and quality service. That’s why we work closely with the homeowner to first understand the issue, communicate expectations, and develop solutions tailored to their specific needs. Simply put, ballpark quotes are often inaccurate, as individualized solutions are more applicable in virtually every situation.
Do you have someone on staff who can help me make decisions on a new lighting layout and design?
Yes, each of our highly trained residential electricians can sit down with you and help you decide on the right kind of light for a given space.
Do you have the equipment to trench and backfill for underground power lines? Yes, we have the right kind of equipment to trench lines and backfill those trenches. We have a mini excavator if you have a larger project as well as a trencher for a smaller one. In addition, we have connections with area utility companies that can help expedite the process.
How often should I replace my smoke detectors?
The batteries in your smoke detectors should be replaced at least annually, if not every six months. A good rule of thumb is to replace both your HVAC filters and smoke detector batteries at the same time.
Your entire unit, whether wired or solely battery-powered, should be replaced every 10 years.
Do you help with emergency or after-hours work?
Generally speaking, we work traditional business hours. However, we’re always willing to make an exception if there is a specific reason to perform work outside of our usual operating hours. Contact us in advance for these unusual situations.
