Residential Services

Most people will rarely need the services of an electrician, but when it is necessary choosing the right one is very important. Although there are many aspects of a remodel or renovation that you can do yourself, house electrical rewiring is not one of them. Even installing new or replacing old electrical sockets is not something you want to do on your own. Not only can you seriously injure yourself, but you could cause fires now or down the road when your electrical work falls apart or fails because you didn�t have the expertise to get the job done the right, safe way.

For home use, electricians are typically needed to re-wire or repair existing systems. They are also needed for construction, including additions and remodels, to place the electrical outlets and lighting. Overall, doing your own electrical repair and home electric systems can be very dangerous if you are not a professional electrician. The next time you are doing a remodel or renovation, avoid potential problems by hiring an experienced electrical contractor in Tucson, AZ.

One serious problem that can occur when you decide to do you own house electrical wiring is circuit overloading. Experienced electrical installation contractors not only know how to install electrical wiring and other features, like lighting and ceiling fans, but they can determine the load on the electrical system as a whole. Because electricians are licensed professionals, they can measure electrical load and avoid flashpoints where your electrical system may overload, causing fire and serious damage to your home. If you are not an experienced electrician, this job is best left to professionals.

If you are facing a big electrical overhaul, or needing a minor electrical repair, it is imperative that you hire an certified Tucson electrician to do this. We can keep your electrical costs down and help you update your existing electrical or install new electrical wiring for renovation or additions. A American Electrical Services is the one....

Being safe when using electrical appliances, extension cords, light bulbs and other equipment is easy, and safety tips should be included in household rules, fire safety and daily expectations for all members of the family. It only takes one mistake to spark an electrical fire, but simple prevention measures can be effective solutions.


Appliances are an integral part of every household, from a simple electric clock to the microwave oven to decorative holiday lights. These safety tips can help keep all appliances operating safely:

Unplug unused appliances and stow cords safely out of reach of pets, young children or hazardous situations.

Appliances that generate heat, such as clocks, televisions and computer monitors, should be given several inches of clearance all around for good air circulation and cooling. Do not drape clothes, toys or other items over warm appliances.

Always follow appliance instructions carefully, and do not attempt amateur repairs or upgrades.

Keep all electrical appliances away from water such as sinks, bathtubs, pools or overhead vents that may drip.

Do not operate any electrical appliance with wet hands or while standing in water.

Keep clothes, curtains, toys and other potentially combustible materials at least three feet away from radiators, space heaters, heating vents and other heat sources.

Hiring the Right Electrician

If you need to replace a few electrical sockets in your home, your first inclination would be to call our Tucson electrician who specializes in residential electrical repair, but what if you need to replace your entire electrical panel. A American Electrical Services is a Full Service electrical company servicing all of the Greater Tucson area and can help with all your needs.


Every electrical appliance has a cord, and many homes use extension cords to increase the range of electrical outlets. These safety tips can help keep cords in good condition for safe operation.

Check cords regularly for frays, cracks or kinks, including power tool cords, holiday lights and extension cords.

Cords are not be jump ropes, clothes lines or leashes, and should never be used for anything other than their intended purpose.

Cords should be firmly plugged into outlets - if the cord is loose and can pull out easily, choose a different, more snug outlet.

Do not staple or nail cords in position at any time; if the cord does not remain where desired, use tape or twist ties to secure it.

Cords should not be placed beneath rugs where they can become a trip hazard or where frays will not be noticeable. Furthermore, covering a cord will prevent it from keeping as cool as possible.

Do not make modifications to a cord's plug at any time - do not clip off the third prong or attempt to file down a wider prong to fit in a different outlet.

Extension cords are a temporary solution only and their use should be minimized whenever possible.

Use the proper weight and length of extension cord for the appropriate task, and be sure the cord is rated for indoor or outdoor use, whichever is required.

When unplugging a cord, pull on the cord at the outlet rather than tug on the cord itself.


Every cord has to plug into an appropriate electrical outlet, but these tempting niches are inviting to unwelcome objects that can cause shorts and fires. Use these electrical safety tips at home to keep outlets safe.

Block unused outlets by changing to a solid cover plate or using childproof caps.

Do not overload outlets with multiple adaptors or power strips; relocate cords instead.

Never put any object other than the appropriate size plug into an outlet.

Install ground fault circuit interrupter outlets in potentially hazardous areas such as near pools, crawlspaces, kitchens, bathrooms and unfinished basements.

Keep all outlets properly covered with secure plates that cover all wiring.

Call a Professional

You should always consult a professional, licensed electrician before beginning any major project that requires electrical repair or electrical wiring. Attempting to install electrical wiring can be dangerous if you don�t have the knowledge or expertise to do it right. Not only could you be at risk for electrocution while you are installing home electric systems, but faulty wiring can cause shorts and fires later if not installed properly.

Light Bulbs

Light bulbs are the single most common electrical fixture in homes, and proper light bulb safety can keep them from becoming a common electrical hazard.

Use bulbs that have the correct wattage requirements for each fixture -- using a higher wattage bulb can cause the fixture to overheat.

Consider switching to more efficient compact fluorescent bulbs that provide the same level of light at a lower wattage level.

Always screw bulbs in tightly; a loose bulb can cause sparks or shorts.

Be sure to unplug or turn off a fixture completely before changing light bulbs.


It is important to also practice electrical safety when outside, since many electrical hazards can be found near homes and not just inside their walls.

Keep trees pruned and away from power lines overhead as well as where the power lines approach the house.

Do not fly kites, model aircraft or balloons near power lines.

When using a ladder, carefully inspect the surrounding area to be sure it is free from power lines.

Do not swim or play in water during an electrical storm, even if it is not raining.

Do not approach a downed power line to see if it is live - it may give no signs that can be easily observed, but it is just as deadly. Contact our Tucson electrical contractors or authorities immediately about downed lines.

At No Time Should You Cut Corners

Many times, faulty home electric systems are created by people who want to save money and do things themselves. Although it is admirable to attack any project with a can-do attitude, saving money on your electrical work is not one of them. Professional electricians are licensed and go through a long apprenticeship process under journeyman and master electricians. Training a "handyman" does not have.
