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.

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).

Remember safety first – and call ARC Electric for your panel changes!

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.
