    Affordable Las Vegas Electrician is a fantastic electrician at an unbelievable price. He performed both a challenging install and fixed a half-dozen electrical issues we were having - in less than half a day. He cleaned up so well after himself, if not for all the improvements, we wouldn't have known he was there. He will be the ONLY electrician we call in the future.

    Over the years, we have had many electricians in our home but none as competent. I can’t recommend him enough! Last year, we did a major kitchen remodel in our 1964 tract home. Imagine a home that was built before dishwashers, beverage coolers, convection ovens, microwaves, computers, and big screen televisions! Over the years, we have had many breakers ‘trip’ due to overloaded circuits. After rerouting the wiring so that it ‘made sense’, He was able to hook up all of our new appliances on their own circuits. Since then, we have had no tripped breakers!

    In addition to rerouting our wiring, They installed recessed lighting in our dining area, bar area, and new kitchen. They also installed under cabinet lighting in the kitchen and bar area.

    For task lighting, he analyzed not only our needs but how the lighting would look. He installed 2 decorative pendant lights over the peninsula. He ran through several scenarios before determining the height of the pendants to make sure that they would work well whether we were seated or standing around the counter. It is his acute attention to even the smallest details that sets him above anyone else we have had work on our home!

    Several months after the completion of our kitchen remodel, we had our fireplace redone. We loved our kitchen recessed lighting so much that we had them back to install lighting that would showcase our new fireplace, plus supply our long, narrow living room with some much needed lighting. By matching the ‘can’ size and placement with our lighting requirements, once again, Their attention to detail provided stunning results.

    He not only does superior work but he is meticulous, courteous, and respectful of the homeowner and their property. His knowledge when it comes to installation, equipment options, requirements, and design make it a pleasure to work with him.

    We are so fortunate to have them as our electrician and can’t wait to have him back when we start our next project!

When we need work performed at our Las Vegas vacation home, we usually only have a window of several days when we're in town.  Few things are more frustrating that setting up a service call and then having the person fail to show up.

In this case, Las Vegas Electrician texted me before the scheduled time and said that he was running late.  He asked if it would be ok if we delayed his arrival by two hours.  He added that if it was not ok he would leave the job he was on and then go back after competing our work.

Wow!  Communication; what a concept. He actually contacted me and we discussed a solution.  Why can't other trades people understand the value of that?

When he arrived, Las Vegas Electrician quickly resolved several problems for us and then charged us a fee that I had to look at twice to believe.  He's amazing and we will have him back whenever we need an electrician.

     (e) The work is performed by a person who is licensed pursuant to this chapter or by an employee of that person.

     6.  The sale or installation of any finished product, material or article of merchandise which is not fabricated into and does not become a permanent fixed part of the structure.

     7.  The construction, alteration, improvement or repair of personal property.

     8.  The construction, alteration, improvement or repair financed in whole or in part by the Federal Government and conducted within the limits and boundaries of a site or reservation, the title of which rests in the Federal Government.

     9.  An owner of property, the primary use of which is as an agricultural or farming enterprise, building or improving a structure on the property for his or her use or occupancy and not intended for sale or lease.

I had the Affordable Las Vegas Electrician over to my home for 3 full days working on a long punchlist of electrical issues. He is a great problem solver with excellent communication. Very honest, professional and always on time. It is so hard to find good, trustworthy, affordable contractors in this town. I only wish he was a plumber and landscaper, too! He hung our flatscreen over the fireplace and installed about a dozen light fixtures. The house looks so much better! Would surely call him again and recommend to all who are looking for quality work done in a timely manner.

 He completed the job in less time than he originally estimated and the quality of his work was outstanding. He showed me the receipt with the items he purchased at Home Depot and did not charge anything extra.
I will definitely be using him for any of my electrical needs in the future and I highly recommend him to all of you who are looking for a professional and honest electrician.



 
Your Affordable Las Vegas Electrician
 

Beware of Hidden Electrical Dangers in Your Home
 
Call a qualified electrician or your landlord if you have:
• Frequent problems with blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers
• A tingling feeling when you touch an electrical appliance
• Discolored or warm wall outlets
• A burning or rubbery smell coming from an appliance
• Flickering or dimming lights
• Sparks from an outlet
 Inspect your home for hidden electrical hazards.
Check electrical cords to make sure the wires are not damaged, cracked or loose. If the cords need to be repaired, take the item to a professional repair shop, hire an electrician or replace with a new item.
Make sure cords are not running across doorways or under carpets.
If they are, have a qualified electrician install more outlets.
 Keep children away from electric cords and outlets. Cords placed in the mouth can cause a burn and objects placed in a receptacle can cause a shock, burns or electrocution.
 Make sure that all receptacle outlets and switches have faceplates.
 Never put more than one plug in each receptacle. An outlet may have one or more receptacles — one to receive each plug.
 Be sure that the bulbs in your lights match what is safe for the lamp. There should be a sticker that indicates the maximum wattage for the light bulb — such as use maximum of a 60 watt bulb.
 Light bulbs in the living area of your home, including closets, should have a shade or globe for protection. Light bulbs can get very hot and cause a fire if something that can burn is too close.
 Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) reduce the risk of shock by shutting off an electrical circuit when the circuit could be a shock hazard. Your home should have GFCIs in the kitchen, bathroom(s), laundry, basement, garage, and outdoor areas.
 Heat producing appliances such as a toaster, coffee maker, iron or microwave oven draw a lot of electricity.
Plug only one heat producing appliance in each outlet to prevent wiring from overheating.
 Buy only appliances that have the label of a recognized testing laboratory.
 Arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) protect against fire by monitoring the electrical current in a circuit and shutting off the circuit when unintended arcing occurs. AFCIs should be installed in your home. If not, have a professional electrician install them for you.
 Keep ladders away from overhead power lines, including the electrical service into your home.
Think Green! Turn off lights when you are not in the room. Unplug appliances when not in use.


Troubleshooting



Circuit Breaker Tripping
 
A circuit breaker is designed to trip off when it detects too much power running through the wire it’s protecting. There are three main reasons circuit breakers trip off:
 
1. There is a short circuit.
2. There is an overloaded circuit.
3. The circuit breaker is broken.
 
Short Circuits
 
Short circuits occur when two electrical wires accidentally touch each other. A short circuit will immediately cause one of your circuit breakers to trip off or one of your fuses to blow.
 
To fix a short circuit, ask yourself this question: “What was happening right before the short circuit?” If you had just plugged something into a receptacle (outlet) or turned on a light or an appliance, then this gives you a clue as to what caused the short.
 
If you just plugged in an iron, for instance, you can simply un-plug the iron and then re-set the circuit breaker or replace the fuse. If everything is now OK, then your electrical system is fine – and it’s time to get a new iron!
 
If, however, you can’t find anything plugged in which is causing the problem, then it’s time to call a good electrician to locate and repair your short circuit.
 
Overloaded Circuit
 
Overloaded circuits occur when too much power is running through an electrical wire. To protect the wire, the circuit breaker does its job by detecting the overload and tripping off. The solution to this problem is to remove some of the appliances that are connected to the overloaded wires. You may wish to add a new set of wires so that you can supply power to all your appliances. For this, you’ll need a good electrician.
 
Broken Circuit Breaker
 
Sometimes circuit breakers just wear out and need to be replaced. A knowledgeable homeowner with electrical skills can do the job. Otherwise, hire a good electrician.
 
Dimmers
 
You might notice that sometimes a dimmer seems warm when you touch it. The good news is, THIS IS NORMAL. Dimmers naturally get warm when they are in use, especially if there is more than one dimmer in the same location.
 
However, if a dimmer is REALLY warm or hot to the touch, this indicates a safety problem, and you should call an electrician who is knowledgeable about lighting issues.
 
Dimmer Warning – Two things to be careful about with dimmers:
 
Never connect a regular dimmer to low-voltage lights, paddle fans, or any kind or motor. These devices require special dimmers.
Never exceed the recommended wattage of the dimmer. Regular dimmers are rated for a maximum of 600 Watts. This is equal to 10 sixty Watt light bulbs, or 6 one hundred Watt bulbs.
NOTE: You can also buy higher-wattage dimmers for connecting more than 600 Watts to one dimmer.
 
 
Resetting Circuit Breakers
 
 
The first thing to understand is that a circuit breaker can have tripped off even when it looks like it’s in the “ON” position. This is because a circuit breaker will sometimes trip off internally, without the "ON/OFF" handle flipping to the “OFF” position.
 
This is what to do when you have a loss of power that you suspect may be caused by a tripped circuit breaker.
 
1. Shut down any computer equipment that may be affected by a loss of power.
 
2. Go to your circuit breaker panel and firmly flip the first breaker OFF and then back ON again.
 
3. Do the same thing with each circuit breaker until you have flipped all of the circuit breakers OFF and then back ON again.
 
4. Now check and see whether the device that didn’t have power is now back on again.
 
5. If your power has been restored… you’re done! If your power is still out, it’s time to call Affordable Las Vegas Electrician.
 
Note: About 25% of all electrical power problems can be solved using the above technique. Good Luck!
 
More Technical Stuff About Circuit Breakers
 
Inside most circuit breakers there are two types of protection: One is thermal. The other is magnetic. The thermal strip measures heat build-up caused by overloading. When it reaches a certain temperature, it will shut off the breaker. The magnetic coil measures sudden increases in current (such as a short). At a predetermined limit it will shut the breaker off. Older breakers sometimes have only one of these features. For maximum protection, a breaker with both types of protection is recommended.
 
There are usually three spots on the outside of a breaker that show wear. If the "ON/OFF" switch (located at the top) has broken off or is loose, we recommend the breaker be replaced. Next is the load lug. If it is burnt or abnormally loose, we recommend the breaker be replaced. Last, and most common, is the stab. The breaker stab is what makes contact with the bussing in the panel (the bussing carries the power throughout the panel). The stab connects to the bussing through friction and spring tension. The spring tension, over time, may break down. If so, arcing or burning may result. If the stab has become burnt, discolored, or is abnormally loose, we recommend that the breaker be replaced and that the bussing in the panel be checked.
 
NOTE: It is possible for a breaker to appear OK in regard to it's outward appearance and its capacity to carry continuity, but still be questionable, bad, or intermittent. The opposite may be true as well. A breaker with a poor outward appearance may be perfectly safe and structurally sound. Therefore a decision to replace a breaker should not be based solely on appearance, continuity, age, etc. A good electrician can recommend the proper course of action based on taking into account all the relevant factors.
 
 
Ground Fault Interrupter’s (GFI)
 
According to the National Electrical Code, in all kitchens, bathrooms, garages, or any area in which water may be present, instead of regular receptacles (outlets), GFI receptacles should be used. These are for your safety.
 
The idea of a GFI receptacle is that if there is the slightest electrical problem, the GFI immediately shuts off the power. This is an important safety feature.
 
When you lose power to a receptacle in a kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoor area, check to see if it's a GFI receptacle. If it is, press the “TEST” button, then press the “RESET” button. If the GFI shuts off power repeatedly, plug in a different appliance to test whether the problem is the first appliance or the GFI itself. If the GFI is defective, call Affordable Las Vegas Electrician.
 
Hint: You may have a receptacle that has lost power in a kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoor area but it's not a GFI. It may be “protected” by a GFI that has tripped off somewhere else. You can check for this situation by making sure that all the GFIs in your kitchen, bathroom, garage, and outdoor areas are working properly.
 
Garbage Disposal Power
 
If your garbage disposal stops working you should:
 
1. First, make sure the power is turned off to the garbage disposal unit by ALWAYS making sure the switch to the garbage disposal is turned to the OFF position.
2. Clear out anything inside the garbage disposal which might be jamming up the motor and stopping it from working.
3. Briefly flip on the switch to the garbage disposal. Do you hear a humming noise? If you do, then there is power going to the disposal and the problem is that the disposal is broken or there is something stuck in it.
4. If you turn on the switch to the garbage disposal and you do not hear any humming noise, locate the small button that is somewhere on the disposal and press it to “re-set” the disposal. Then try turning on the disposal again.
5. Finally, try re-setting all the circuit breakers in your electrical panel to see if you can get power back.
