We Do Professional Electrical Home Safety Inspections
Many homes have outdated and dangerous electrical equipment – especially older homes. Bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor outlets should all have GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets for safety. Another common danger we see during residential safety inspections is two-pronged receptacles.
These type of outlets don’t have a third prong that protects against a short in the wire that could shock someone. Many of the electrical panels or breaker boxes are outdated and pose a fire hazard. Let us perform a home safety inspection on your home and eliminate these hidden dangers through our local electrical repair services.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Check out some of our Gladstone electricians’ answers to some of the most common FAQs we encounter on a weekly basis related to both commercial and home electrical repairs.
Can’t I Just “DIY” My Home’s Electrical Repairs?
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to immediately spot an electrical issue, since electricity is something used dozens of times per day. Any good “handyman” or “handywoman” may tell you that they should be able to fix it themselves without a problem. However, most handymen are generally not qualified to handle electrical work. In contrast, experienced and licensed Electricians have to undergo years of extensive training and certification processes to obtain his or her license. As a safety measure, we recommend you always use an electrical contractor in Gladstone, MO, or wherever you are located in the Kansas City metro.
Is My Home’s Electrical Wiring Up-To-Date?
The majority of homeowners in the KC metro and local home inspectors cannot always easily identify the age of electrical wiring. It often takes a trained and licensed electrician to properly do this. In general, if your home was built between 1920 and 1960, the wiring that was used can have a tendency to dry rot and cause problems. If your Gladstone home falls in the age range, and you have not had an inspection in the last few years, we recommend you schedule an inspection to determine if your home’s wiring is up-to-date.
Why Do My Electrical Fuses Blow And Why Do My Breakers Trip?
Usually, fuses blow and breakers trip because you have overloaded the circuit with things like; air conditioners, TVs, microwaves, fans, heaters, etc. It does not always matter how big your service is, as these common electrical issues usually have to do with a branch circuit, which is from the breaker box to whatever the problem device is.
What Is The Difference Between A Fuse and A Circuit Breaker?
Fuses and circuit breakers both essentially perform the same electrical function in your home, which is disrupting the flow of electricity when a fault is sensed. A fuse will have to be replaced once it has tripped, whereas a circuit breaker won’t need replacement. It is for this reason that circuit breakers are more commonly used in Gladstone homes as well as throughout the Kansas City area.
Why Does My Light Switch Feel Hot or Very Warm When Touching It?
If you reach for your light switch to turn it off, only to find that it is hot to the touch, you definitely have a problem. This is not normal, and it often indicates that there are serious issues hiding in the electrical wiring or electrical setup behind your walls. Call a local electrician in Gladstone, MO, to inspect this thoroughly or you could end up facing a home electrical fire in the future.
What Are GFCI Electrical Devices?
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) devices are required in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, garages, and outside. These are life-saving devices against electrical shock. GFCIs are residual-current devices, or residual-current circuit breakers, that quickly break an electrical circuit to prevent serious harm from an ongoing electric shock, making them a safer option.
Why Do My Lamp Bulbs Burn Out Quickly?
There are several possible reasons for lamp bulbs burning out quickly, it could be the quality of the lamps you are using or the house could be at the high-end voltage of the electric service on your street. Also, make sure you are using the correct light bulbs for your lamp type.
What Are Arc Fault Breakers and Do I Need Them?
Arc fault breakers monitor the current and discriminate between normal and unwanted arcing conditions. Arc fault breakers are primarily designed to protect against electrical fires caused by “arcing”. Several years ago, the electrical code was updated and requires us to install arc fault breakers in the house wherever there are new lines being installed, except for where GFCI devices are required (kitchens and bathrooms). We recommend arc fault breakers, as they are generally regarded as a beneficial technology and help the electrical safety of your home.
