Electrical Repair Service in Glenview, IL

Electricity is involved in almost every room of your house, but we often take it for granted. When something knocks out the power, it’s easy to see how much we rely on the switches and outlets in our homes. Unfortunately, electrical wiring can wear out over time, and improperly installed systems can cause permanent damage.

Common Electrical Problems

If the electrical system in your home is damaged, you may notice problems like:

  • Dim or flickering lights
  • Frequently tripped circuits
  • Outlets that feel warm to the touch
  • Buzzing or vibrating coming from your walls
  • Certain outlets don’t work

We make electricity our specialty so you don’t have to. If you’ve started noticing electrical problems in your home, schedule an appointment with Current Electrical Contractors today.

Frequent Blown Fuses

If you frequently blow a fuse, you may be overloading your circuit. This is generally a pretty simple fix that doesn’t require outside assistance.

Some common causes of an overloaded circuit include:

  • Too many appliances on a small circuit
    Did you just move the coffee maker or microwave to another location in the kitchen? Are you running the blender and the toaster at the same time?
  • Portable electric heaters
    Each heater usually consumes 12.5 amps. 12.5 amps are 83% of standard bedroom circuits. If another appliance is on that circuit there is a good chance the breaker will trip. Electric hair dryers are another common overloading appliance.
  • A short circuit
    A short circuit can happen when the hot wire touches the neutral wire, the ground wire or any metal part of the light fixture.
  • An open circuit
    An open circuit occurs when either the hot or neutral wire is no longer connected at some point in the circuit. This can occur when a splice or wire terminal becomes overheated to the point where it can no longer carry current or is somehow physically disconnected. This can be a tricky and time-consuming service call because the electrician has to troubleshoot the circuit.

If reducing the number of appliances on the circuit doesn’t resolve your electrical issues, call Current Electrical Contractors for assistance.

Power Outages

If the power of your home or business is completely out, we always recommend you first contact Commonwealth Edison or Winnetka Water and Electric. Unfortunately, if the power outage is at the fault of an electricity provider we cannot help. We are happy to verify whether or not the outage is a provider issue, but will charge for our electrician’s time.

In the case of a partial power outage, our electricians recommend you first check the electrical panel to see if a circuit breaker is tripped and can be reset. All circuit breakers have three positions On, Off, and Tripped. The circuit breaker needs to be switched from tripped to off before it is reset.

We want to save you time and money, which is why we recommend you check the circuit breaker before calling for service. If you’re not able to reset the circuit breaker, we’ll be happy to come take a look and diagnose the issue.

Emergency Electrical Repair Service

We know that electrical problems don’t always happen at convenient times. That’s why we offer emergency repair service for our customers.

The first thing our electricians will do after receiving a call is to determine the urgency of the service. Our electricians are often busy with previously scheduled work, but if it is an emergency, we will do everything in our power to solve your problem ASAP. If the service call is not an emergency, we will schedule you for the soonest available appointment.

Our Clients Reviews

Has very good work ethic and very professional.

I don’t have enough good things to say about this company. Last year, the light on my intricate entryway crystal chandelier started arcing and smoking when I turned it on. This chandelier hangs 17′ up, and even with my limited knowledge on electrical work, this was going to be an absolute pain of a job for anybody to handle. Arik and team came out, built a scaffold in my entryway and took down the light with its dozens of individually strung crystals. The renovation company who had installed the fixture had used halogen bulbs, placing 9 of them in an 18″ diameter x 4″ thick plate at the top of the fixture. The heat of the bulbs had melted the interior of the fixture and cooked the drywall in which it was mounted with toggle bolts. Arik not only fixed the light fixture itself, put in LED bulbs, and got everything back to working/looking like it should, but even did me the favor of remounting it using the ceiling joists. Suffice it to say: if you have a difficult job, Current Electrical can handle it. They’re professional, willing to explain options and different approaches, and just generally nice people. They’re now my go-to group for electrical jobs of any size.
