A newly technology in our trade is the arcfault breaker, and they are no1 KAB recommended protection. An arcffault breaker are needed to be installed on new buildings and can also be added to older wirings to greater detect sparks around the electrical systems, thereby automatically isolating the affected area.
Others ways are a good lightning protections or earthling/grounding.
YES! You can call us, whatapp or use our booking app to get an instant response anytime anyday anywhere same price.
When we started bowwood electrical, we accepted jobs on the premises that we help everyone..
We don’t handpick project or discriminate any job no matter how small, dirty or challenging over 7 years plus we have continue to solve electrical needs and challenges for both small, medium and large scale customers across the state.

At bowwood electrical we suggest a dedicated circuitry for AC, cooker unit, refrigerator, toasters, dryers, washing machine, etc…. take note this circuitry should not be GFCI protected like alot of receptacle found in kitchen and garages… a dedicated circuit will protect your fridge from tripping, which directly affect the compressor especially when using Generators..
We always try to respond immediately and work on Emergency and smaller job. Larger project are scheduled with you to meet your deadlines and coordinate with other sub utility companies. We even refund back 20% service cost if we don’t respond or deliver on any given project within time.
Licensed electricians are required to know the current electrical code of their sate and electrical grid companies, if you go to the extent of changing or adding electrical wiring or equipment yourself you ought to do it with the current electrical code/ standard practical for your own good.
Also the professional will purchase the correct material at the correct exchange rate, eliminating possible waste which can save you good amount of money at the end.
Most importantly there is always a risk of electrocution and arc burns when doing electrical repairs and installation.
Not to mention that incorrect electrical work has a nasty reputation for starting electrical fire.
We are always willing to estimate your electrical project for free when you know what needs, installed, maintain, upgrade or new construction, we only charge for estimate if it requires a 3D illustration or any sort of design.
However troubleshooting an unknown electrical issues is an hourly rate with a minimum service charge of 2hours. In our experience, it takes more time to detect the problem than repair it, so we take our time to repair it while we are called out to take a look at it.
here are several reasons this could be occurring. However, one particular reason that can be extremely dangerous is overheating. Having to replace bulbs over and over again is not only a massive inconvenience, but it is also a fire hazard. We recommend having your light fixtures inspected by an electrician if you notice that bulbs are constantly blowing out.
Before you worry, try a simple test. Find a small lamp and plug it into the outlet in question. Then, flip on all of the wall switches in the room. The lamp may turn on when you flip a switch because some outlets are controlled by a wall switch. If you cannot find a switch that operates the outlet, check around the room and see if other outlets or lights are out. Next, check the electrical panel to see if any circuits are tripped. If they are, reset the circuit breaker. If you try all of the wall switches and the circuit breaker, and find that the outlet still does not work, be sure to call an electrician to evaluate the problem. There may be a short somewhere in the system.
If you have reset circuits, only to have the breaker trip again, it is likely that you have a more serious problem that needs to be addressed by a qualified electrician. Our experience has shown that typically a power-hungry appliance is causing the trip in the circuit breaker. Usually, it is caused by a space heater during the winter, an air conditioning unit during the summer, or even something as small as a hairdryer. However, sometimes it is simply that the rating of a frequently used circuit needs to be increased. For example, if a 15-amp circuit keeps tripping, then you may need to have it changed to a 20-amp. Changing circuits should only be done by a professional, certified electrician.
Conventional circuit breakers only respond to overloads and short circuits. They do not protect against arcing conditions that produce erratic and often reduced currents. AFCI stands for Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter. AFCIs are designed to protect against fires caused by arcing faults in electrical wiring. AFCIs are required in the United States for residential bedrooms.
