Electrical Inspection

If you’re living in an older home, when was the last time you had a professional electrician perform an electrical inspection? Many older homes that were built before the 1940’s have obsolete lighting and electrical wiring such as knob and tube that is no longer deemed up to code. One way to know if your home is suffering from faulty wiring is if you have pesky flickering lights, frequent power outages, or overall dim lighting around your home. Our electricians have years of experience in detecting flawed wiring in everything from circuit breakers and outlets to your whole home backup generators and solar panels. Call our shop today to schedule an appointment for a complete electrical inspection of your home or business.

Electrical Rewiring

As your local electrician experts, we advise against DIY endeavors.

Electrical Upgrades

Your electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system and is the key distributor of all electrical circuits within your home. If you are adding electrical appliances or installing electrical circuits – we advise contacting a professional to avoid any potential safety and fire hazard caused by installing electrical upgrades and wiring. At D&D Electric, we evaluate your entire electrical system and determine if you need an electrical upgrade to your main panel, or a complete installation of a sub-panel to better develop your electrical efficiency.

If your home is experiencing dim lights, consistent power outages, and circuit breaker fails, it may be time to either upgrade your electrical panel or install a sub-panel. An electrical sub-panel installation is ideal to relieve the burden of running your entire electrical system through your main panel. Sub-panels are also an ideal installation if your main panel doesn’t have enough space to support additional circuit breakers.

Electrical Repairs

Our electricians at D&D Electric have years of training and experience in spotting and performing electrical repairs on both residential and commercial properties. Are you experiencing electrical issues in your newly built home? Often when modern homes begin to have flickering lights or broken switches, the root of the issue is with a new appliance or light fixture that wasn’t installed or manufactured properly. It may not seem like a major issue at first, but over time these electrical problems can put you and your home or business at risk. According to the NFPA, in 2019 over half of all home fires in the United States were due to improper electrical systems.

Don’t wait! Have your circuit breakers, Generac generators, light fixtures, and outlets repaired by the professionals at D&D Electric near Champaign, Illinois.

Outlet Installation

Electrical wiring and circuits are what make up an entire home’s electrical system. Those two tools are what are required to instill a complete flow of electricity from your main electrical panel to your outlets and HVAC systems, etc. In the United States, electric circuits are either 120-volts or 240-volts.

Disruptions within your circuit wiring are potential fire hazards, and it is estimated that 50 people die every year from accidental electrocutions at home. While it may seem like a simple task or fix, unsafe and improper electrical wiring can lead to a devastating backlash. It is best to call the professionals and let us help you with your outlet installations.

We install your standard household three-pronged and polarized receptacle outlets and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets where electrical appliances may be subjected to moisture.
