Protect Your Property from Theft & Electrical Hazards
Two of the most important electrical components of your property are your meter base and riser which are typically located outside. The meter base houses all of the main electrical wiring to your home or business, keeping them dry and protected from harsh weather conditions. Additionally, your meter base and riser are what connect your property’s electrical system to your utility company’s wires. At NWA Electric, our Northwest Arkansas outdoor electrical services include installing, repairing, and maintaining your meter base and riser.
One of the most common reasons we are called is because a meter base is outdated and not up to local building and safety codes. This can be fixed with a simple replacement that brings your electrical system up to code and improves your property’s overall safety. We also recommend replacing your meter base and riser if you’re conducting home renovations or upgrading your electrical panel. Although rare, severe weather conditions can damage the meter base and we recommend having us inspect it after any major storm. If you’re experiencing problems with your meter base and riser, it’s important that you call us right away. In addition to faulty wiring being a major inconvenience and disturbing the power to your most used devices and lighting, it is also an emergency because it can create a serious fire hazard.
Keeping Your Home Safe & Well-Lit
Today, there are GFCI outlets that are specifically made for the outdoors because they are weatherproofed. They typically have a little "WR" on them to indicate that they're weather rated. Unfortunately, many people still have indoor GFCI outlets installed outdoors. If you rely on these, especially during Christmas time, we recommend calling us to install proper outdoor ones so you can reduce the risk of an electrical fire while your home continues to glow a beautiful red and green.
If you have an older pool, chances are it was installed with a metal conduit for the power supply. However, we've found that metal can rot or decay and the wiring inside can be compromised or melted. Our NWA outdoor electricians can assist by replacing your pool's conduit with approved PVC conduit that does not rot or decay when this happens. We can also change out the timer clocks that run your pool's pumps when they fail.
Professionally Installed Landscape Lighting
Light your walkways with ground lighting, add an aesthetic accent to your front porch or increase visibility on your back patio. All outdoor lighting serves a dual purpose of making your yard both attractive and safe. Since outdoor lighting is exposed to all sorts of weather, we can make sure it's water-safe, secure, and installed according to local electrical codes. Is it hard to see in your front or backyard after dark? Let ElectricMan add outdoor lighting to your home. From security lights to beautiful landscape lighting, we do it all. Our family-owned and operated electrical company serves NWA and the surrounding areas with friendly technicians and low prices.
We recommend installing security lighting on all sides of your home to discourage burglary attempts. Most of these lights have motion sensors and photocells, meaning they will flip on if something moves in your yard after the sun goes down. Our outdoor lighting installation technicians in NWA recommend motion-sensor lights rather than lights that are constantly on, as the sudden bright light can surprise and quickly scare away intruders.
