FAQ What is a Federal Pacific electrical panel and are they dangerous?
Federal Pacific is a brand of electrical service panel that has been known to cause overheating and fires. Their breakers would not de-energize the circuit upon overload and cause overheating to occur on occasion.
Whats is a GFI outlet, where are they required?
A GFI outlet is short for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. They are used to help prevent electrical shock in locations where water or moisture may be present. Also called a GFCI these devices are placed in Garages, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Basements, Exterior locations and even on some household appliances. They can be easily identified by the test and reset buttons on the face of the outlet.
Why are my lights flickering?
Flickering lights can be caused by various reasons, some include loose connections on the electrical circuit. The lights can also be controlled from a dimmer that is not suitable for the type of light or wattage that is being consumed. In more severe electrical emergency situations flickering lights can be a sign that the main electrical panel or exterior meter is arcing from loose, corroded or worn parts and needs immediate attention from a licensed electrician.
Why did my breaker trip?
Tripping circuit breakers can be caused by various circuit failures such as overloads. An overload occurs when too much power is drawn from a circuit all at once. When a breaker trips from an overload it is different from a short. A short circuit occurs when a live wire (ungrounded conductor) comes in contact with either a neutral wire (grounded conductor) or a ground conductor (grounding conductor). When this happens the circuit breaker will usually trip right away and can not be reset. During an overload situation, the circuit breaker can be reset once the load is reduced on that circuit to the proper load.
What is an LED light?
LED lights or light-emitting diodes are a relatively newer source of light. These types of lights provide illumination using light-emitting diodes. LEDs provide long-lasting energy efficient sources of light.
What is an electrical emergency?
An electrical emergency is any failure of an electrical system that causes personal harm or potential damage to property. They can consist of electrical shocks, sparks, overheating and fires. Most electrical emergencies require professional licensed electricians and possibly the fire department or ambulance to get involved right away.
Why is my light switch or dimmer hot?
Often times a light switch or dimmer can become hot from overloading from too much wattage. Dimmers are more likely to become hot from overloading due to the fact that they are designed to dissipate heat while being operated. If a dimmer switch becomes too hot it will usually fail. A switch becoming hot is usually a sign of a loose connection but they too can feel hot if too much power is on the circuit.
Why hire a licensed Naperville electrician in 2020?
Everyone would like to know the difference between a professional licensed Naperville electrician and someone that “knows how to do it”. In 2020 many code changes have taken effect and we are the leading local electrical contractor helping the local Naperville residents and business owners comply. If you’re in need of filing a permit for your project you can visit the City of Naperville building department website.
Most people will have very little knowledge of the electrical field and what goes into being considered an expert in the trade.
We are often called out to projects to troubleshoot issues and safety hazards that have developed and caused a disruption in service or in more severe cases of fire and or injury.
Upon inspecting the sources of these electrical failures, it quickly becomes apparent to a seasoned trained professional electrician that the work was performed by non-professional installers.
Nonprofessional electrical installers also referred to as handymen or jack of all trades type salesmen prey on the unknowing customers.
These salesmen take advantage of customers by offering what they may claim to be the same service as a professional licensed electrician and most often for less money to spark interest and close the sale.
The work commences and smiles and handshakes are delivered but what gets paid for is usually very subpar craftsmanship.
The old saying goes you don’t know what you don’t know and that definitely applies to quality electrical installations.
Below we will outline some of the common signs to watch out for to avoid potential electrical and fire hazards that can result from hiring unlicensed electrical installers.
Signs that your “electrician” might not be one after all.
If you’re in Naperville and are getting free estimates for your next electrical project and the name of the company is Bob’s ABC handyman service or ABC construction company, there is a very good chance that they are not specialists in their field.
The old saying goes “a jack of all trades is a master of none”, this couldn’t be truer when looking for someone to trust wiring up your hot tub or swimming pool electric for example.
As a licensed electrician Naperville, there are many local codes and regulations that professionals must adhere to for the safety and proper installation of your electrical system.
With Reliant Naperville Electrician you can rest assured that we are fully licensed, bonded and insured to protect your family and property from any hazards or accidents.
Unlicensed and side job type installers do not bother to provide all the safe practices and National Electrical Code compliant craftmanship standards. Be sure as an informed consumer to ask lots of questions about what the installer or technician plans to do and listen to the responses.
A true professional should be able to clearly explain with complete clarity the details of what is to be completed and the codes that are involved with such installation.
If the installer seems to be unsure of certain aspects or says a thing like that’s just the way they do it without providing a basis or details, it could be a clue that they are not actually an electrician but rather just a handy type salesman.
Licensed electricians are actually easy to spot if you know what to look for.
Would you want a dentist to do your back adjustments? Probably not. This is why it’s important to be able to figure out if your contractor or repairman is the real deal or someone posing as a professional electrician.
Most often just asking a simple question can help you to know if the person is honestly a pro.
Are you a licensed and insured Naperville electrical contractor? If the answer is yes, consider them as a good prospect for your next project or repair if the answer is no, I’d highly recommend you keep searching. The dangers of electrocution and fire are very real if things are not done properly.
As a professional electrical tradesman, you know these dangers and risks very well. We are trained over the course of many years to be among a limited supply of highly skilled craftsmen.
True electricians stand out from the pack when questioned or confronted with a complex issue.
We know the answers and we know how to provide the code compliant solutions to deliver the most cost effective and more importantly safe installation techniques.
All too often we are called out to fix what someone was previously paid to do so our customers essentially had to pay to have the job done twice because the first installer failed to do so properly.
When owners are lucky the code violations are often found during a routine home sale inspection for example.
More often though the issues develop, and we get emergency service calls for numerous problems on varying levels of life safety or personal property dangers. You can read more about us here!

Signs of Electrical failures and safety devices.
If you have noticed or can visually inspect some areas of your home this may help prevent possible accidents from occurring.
Try to be vigilant in your home or business because some signs of electrical failures can be seen.
For example, if you notice your lights begin to flicker randomly and it continues over time this can be a sign that you may have a loose connection and where there are poor connections there is heat and possible fires can ignite.
If you were to ever smell something burning or a plastic or electronics type smell this is also a very serious sign and an electrical emergency service call may be necessary.
It’s also recommended to replace your smoke detector batteries once a year and completely replace your smoke detectors every seven years.
Your smoke detectors should be interconnected so that if one goes off, they all go off giving you time to escape the house if necessary, so it’s very important to do so as this may be your first line of defense against any electrical fires that may arise.
Another very important life safety device that should be present in all wet areas of your house including your garage and exterior are GFCI protection.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters are a device placed between you and your electrical utilization equipment that can help prevent electrocution and shocks.
These devices are designed to cut off power in the event that you personally are creating part of a return path of electrical currents.
They can sense the imbalance of current at very low levels of 5 milliamps which is crucial since it only takes 100-200 milliamps to stop a human heart which is less than a 1-watt bulb for example.
GFI protection is required by the national electrical code in all bathrooms, kitchens, garages, unfinished basements and exterior spaces.
Please be sure to test them or hire a professional to test and replace as necessary to ensure your friends and family stay safe.
A licensed Naperville electrician does not always guarantee quality. What to look for.
Quality electricians want to better themselves every day and pride themselves on their work.
I was personally trained by the best electrical tradesman in my area for many years before going on my own and becoming licensed.
It’s the infield training that separates someone who knows how to install to someone that is a bred electrician through multiple years of dedication and learning.

When a free estimate becomes expensive.
To all of the Naperville residents beware of bait and switch tactics to earn your business employed by the big ad spenders. Many fall victim to high priced underdelivered salesmen.
The fast-talking smooth negotiators have an ability to create a sale at the point of connection but then that’s where their expertise stops.
Be sure to know who will perform your electrical services so that you don’t get underqualified beginners at journeyman level rates.
Many larger companies have to hire whoever they can get to meet their staffing needs and fill the schedule.
Since most people don’t understand electricity and proper installation techniques, they are unaware that the price they paid was for subpar work.
There are a lot of workers but far fewer highly skilled technicians in our field which makes it hard to identify if someone was trained to be a salesman or trained to be an electrician.
This is why it’s so important to ask lots of probing questions to weed out the Pros from the average Joes. You can Check out our Reviews here.
