Custom Pop-up Outlet with Wireless Charging

A Clean & Clutter-Free Aesthetic

Outlets in the wall are unsightly. They typically don’t match the room decor, they stick out on your walls, and are often inconvenient in their placement. They make your room look cluttered and often interfere with your overall aesthetic. Plus, cords to your electronics will often have to drape over the side of your cupboards or end tables when in use. Exactly what you don’t want! But a pop up outlet hides in a countertop or built-in when not in use, preserving the look of your room. And when in use, it helps keep cords from being in the way. Win-win!

This custom pop-up outlet also includes a wireless charging port on top, which can be used even without extending the pop-up outlet!  Contact us at ARC Electric for installation of your outlet – in reading nooks, kitchen counters, or other built-in counters, as you please.

Raleigh Electrical Panel Upgrade

Your Electrical Service Breaker Panel is the heart of your electrical system it distributes power from your service provider to every electrical device in your home or business. If this fails or is out of date major problems can occur, loss of power, damage to electrical appliances, and at worst an electrical fire.
These days, with all the new appliances and technical devices we have in our Raleigh homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand, without an electrical panel upgrade. An ARC Electric electrician (your Raleigh and Cary electrical contractor) can inspect your home’s current wiring system and recommend any electrical panel changes that are necessary. Don’t wait for problems to occur. If your home is over 15 years old call the best electricians in Raleigh to give you a FREE estimate today.
See ARC Electric for your Raleigh and Holly Springs electrical panel upgrade!

Here When You Need Us – Coronavirus and Electricians

Hi Neighbors,
…turns out 2020 had some surprises in store for all of us. We hope your families and homes are holding up well in all this craziness. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to let you know we are here for you if you need us. Murphy’s law would have it that most things fail at the most inopportune time, and this would definitely qualify. Just know that we are still available 24/7 for any electrical and plumbing needs you may run into. If Our state institutes a lock down like New York and California we would still be available for emergency purposes. You’ll be glad to know that we’ve taken special precautions as of a few weeks ago to ensure we remain available to you.
  • Our office staff are working from home
  • All our techs check their temperatures before coming into work, and are scanned again once they arrive at our shop in the mornings.
  • All our techs have been informed to stay home if they exhibit any symptoms outlined by the CDC regarding covid-19.
To mitigate any falsehoods they have all been reassured that we will continue paying our technicians if they were to have symptoms or fall ill.
As an extra precaution, if you are high risk or are uncomfortable with someone in your home at this time we have masks and gloves available that the technicians can wear in your home.
We will get through this together, we love this community and are proud to do our part.
Thank you,
Rich Levert – President

Spring Forward – And Check Your Smoke Detectors!

Time to spring forward this Sunday! Now is a great opportunity to replace smoke detector batteries.

Did you know?

• If a power outage occurs for 2 or more days, batteries should be replaced.

• Smoke detectors need to be cleaned regularly with a vacuum cleaner attachment to remove dust. This ensures that smoke can reach the alarms sensor.

• Smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years, the manufacturing date is located on the back of the detector.

• Older homes built prior to 1993 were not required to have smoke detectors in every bedroom. Also, starting in 2011, carbon monoxide detectors were required on every level of a home.

If you would like to update and include interconnected detectors in your home, give us a call to talk about options available.  This is just one of our many residential electric services!

Residential Electricians Install Smoke Alarms

Raleigh Electrical Service Contractor


Working as Raleigh electricians for other local service companies, we noticed the shortcomings in customer service, so we decided to create ARC Electric Inc. so that the Raleigh area can have better electricians; a family owned and operated electrical service company that provides quality electrician services with excellent customer service for North Carolina homeowners.

Our typical residential jobs include everything from trouble-shooting service calls and replacing an electrical panel, to remodeling projects that require electrical upgrades such as new interior lighting or installing power and control systems for a pool and spa.

Holly Springs, Raleigh Electrical Contractor

Once he arrives ask your licensed Raleigh electrician about our Free electrical safety inspection included with every service call. (We do charge $129 for just doing an inspection without any other services)

We also do pre-wiring for new home construction and have expertise with low voltage systems involving voice, data, and video wiring systems, such as those for telephones, computers and home theaters. We cover all phases of electrical service work from simple ceiling fans installations to total system electrical upgrades.

Raleigh, Apex, Cary Service Electrician

Common ARC Electric residential services include

24 HR Emergency Service

24/7 emergency electrical services in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, and all of Wake and surrounding counties.

Safety Inspection

Our trained Electricians have gone through our safety inspection course so they can better identify potential problems to ensure your house is safe for your family.

Residential Lighting

ARC Electric Inc. offers expert lighting designers who have experience in both landscape lighting design as well as interior accent lighting.
Lighting can be a great way to accentuate some of your homes’ best features.

Home Theaters

ARC Electric offers expert multimedia and custom audio/video installation, to create specialized systems specific to each client’s home. We pride ourselves on delivering quality work with a fit and finish high above the industry standard.

Gas Line Bonding

After several fires and reports of damage were recorded from CSST use the National Electrical Code (NEC) has added a new section requiring the gas line be directly bonded to the home’s service grounded conductor.


Our number one priority at Arc electric is safety. One way to achieve that is by ensuring that your home is equipped with both GFCI’s (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) and AFCI’s (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters).

Ronald McDonald House

It is with great honor that ARC has partnered to help with The Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake county annual toy, gift card, and non-perishable food drive ‪from November 1st through December 10th.‬

All our techs will have gift wrapped boxes to collect any toys or items you may wish to donate. Because the children’s immune systems are typically compromised, all toys must be new and unwrapped. Toys and gifts for babies, young children, teens, and parents would all be greatly appreciated. Since many families spend so much time in the hospital, non-perishable food items, which can fill up the parents’ pantry, are also a great opportunity for families to grab some food without having to take extra time away to go grocery shopping. Please help us bring smiles to these children and their families this holiday season!

And thank you for helping make The Ronald McDonald House a home this holiday season.
