Importance of Winter Maintenance


Spring is so close we can practically taste it. Even so, making it to the end of Daylight Savings doesn’t mean we are out of the winter woods yet. If you can’t remember the last time you’ve had electrical maintenance done, it’s time to pick up the phone and put a call in for an appointment.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

We use different types of electrical power in the winter than we do in the summer. For example, the darkness of the season lends us to flip the lights on more often. As the days stretch longer, you may be able to turn a blind eye to issues that have cropped up. Just because you don’t actually see those lights flickering, doesn’t mean that there isn’t an underlying issue. Call in an electrician while you’re seeing the problems and before you get wrapped up in patio parties.

The Inevitable Thaw

All of that heavy snow has to go somewhere. Maybe the weight of it has done a number on your outdoor lighting, maybe the melt will start to force breakage along the walls, maybe your neighbourhood squirrel has hidden its nuts in a broken outlet. Whatever the case, you’ll want to have a thorough inspection done before the snow melts. Besides, you will want to spend time in the newly found sun, not coordinating electrical maintenance.

Prepare for the Heatwave

It may be hard to imagine now, but the temperatures are going to skyrocket to unbearable heights come mid-summer. Bedtime will have you and your family cranking up the A/C just to get some relief from the heat. Imagine, if you will, turning the switch on your air conditioning unit and hearing a clunk, only to learn that it is broken. Simply having an electrical inspection done months prior would have alerted you to the problem and allowed you to fix it right away. For those considering an air conditioning unit in the summer, will your electrical system be up to the task or will it need an upgrade?

Don’t put off your electrical maintenance any longer. Call on your trusted electricians at 4 Star Electric Ltd. to get your home back up to speed so that you can enjoy the spring to the fullest!
