Raleigh, Cary, Holly Springs, Apex Service Electrician: Home Theater

Raleigh Service Electrician - Home Theater Installation Home theaters require more than just plugging in a few appliances. Most systems use multiple components: the television or projector, the DVD or Blu-ray player, the cable box, the stereo system and however many speakers you wish to include (usually anywhere from five to ten). All of them require proper organization and connections, as well as an evenly balanced power load. An electrician can help distribute that load evenly, and make sure your system can handle the demand without tripping the circuit breakers. Some systems need to be hard wired into your home, something which should only be done by a professional.

All of those components need to be connected to each other, and in the case of speakers must sometimes run the length of the entire room in order to do their job. An amateur job may leave wires in a dangerous tangle or stretched across parts of the room such as doorways and walkways. An electrician can run the wiring through the walls, as well as keeping the connections safe and clear to ensure the best viewing experience possible.

Biltmore House – Power Panel

This is really incredible to see. The technology that was being used at that time is truly amazing, and the fact that it was used until 1990 is great.
While it may not be that massive, if you have an electrical service that is aging and would like to have one of our electricians come inspect and give an estimate to bring it up to date, give us a call!

Part of Biltmore House Power Panel

From the Biltmore House Facebook post:

“While Biltmore House remains closed at this time, we hope you enjoy this peek at the sub-basement, where the original heating and power equipment still stand!
Biltmore was designed with “state-of-the-art” technology of the time. That is evident in Biltmore’s Sub-Basement where the original heating and power equipment still stand. This switchboard measures seven by sixteen feet and is made of four slabs of solid marble chosen for its insulating properties.
This switchboard was used until April of 1990 at which time it was determined to be inadequate to accommodate the needs of the House.”

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

Warning! Don’t do this! by your Raleigh Service Electrician

“It doesn’t take much to be electrocuted, fatally electrocuted just by an outlet in a wall socket,” Plymouth, Massachusetts, Fire Chief Ed Bradley said.

Dangerous Damage to Outlet Seen Here

There is a new awfully-stupid challenge going around on kids’ social media, called the “outlet challenge” – involving partially plugging a phone charger into an outlet and then touching a penny to the exposed prongs.  Obviously unsafe, fire officials are warning that the action could cause fire or serious injury.

See the video, for full report:
