How much power does your home’s electrical panel provide? If you have an older home you may need a panel upgrade to increase the amount of power for your home in order for everything to function properly. Very often an older home will have a very small electrical panel, which was the standard many years ago before things such as Hot Tubs and Air Conditioning units became popular. Operating your home without the proper amount of power will create problems as time goes on. Tripped breakers, dimming lights and experiencing small power outages throughout the home are all signs of an overloaded panel that will require a service upgrade. Not only are these problems annoying and inconvenient but points to a much larger issue-SAFETY! If your home’s electrical system requires more power than it is receiving from the panel, there is a risk of overheating. Excessive heat in the panel is dangerous and can create fire, smoke and melting inside the panel. The electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system and it should be properly sized in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Call us to evaluate the electrical panel in your home-we provide a completely free estimate.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a wonderful way to add aesthetic beauty to your home while circulating cool air in the summer and warmth in the winter. Interested in having a ceiling fan installed but currently you do not have any ceiling fixtures? No problem! We can easily run the electricity for the fan, as well as assemble and install it. Over time, ceiling fans can wear out from running for years. As with any motor, eventually it may quit working. If you are considering having a new ceiling fan installed, please call us and we would be happy to set up a visit to provide you with a free estimate.

Basement Finishes

Finishing your basement can greatly increase your home’s value. If you are interested in having this done but you are not sure how to get started, please call us and we can help get the ball rolling. We will provide a free estimate, with no hidden charges, and answer any questions you may have. A basement finish does not have to look like a basement! The lighting will be a major factor in how the finished product will look. The proper lighting can make the difference between a dark, dingy space and a beautiful, warm, well-lit area. Call us today and we can help your basement finish beautiful.

Rick did a great job. Cleaned up all the mess and didn’t wast time. Was up front with the cost.
-Dianne C. Colorado Springs, CO

Friendly. Very knowledgeable. Started and completed the work on the same day that we met. Provided 3-year warranty for work done. Cleaned-up after the work. Very satisfied.-Ron B., Colorado Springs, CO

This was our second project with Rick. He came out and did all of the work on the day planned. He installed three recessed lighting fixtures, installed three pendant lights, shut off electricity to a light fixture, installed a dimmer switch and fixed an outlet. Rick was very professional and did all of the work for the estimate price, no hidden fees or up charges. I highly recommend Rick for any electrical job. He isn’t the cheapest nor the most expensive, but he does quality work and backs it up if needed. He cleans up any mess and has left my husband and I completely satisified yet again.
