TV or Video Game Gifts
What’s one of the more popular gifts this season, that new console that no one can afford? But behind your entertainment center lurks a rats nest of electrical cables. Adding yet another cable to that mess could be dangerous. Even if you have everything plugged into a power strip you could overload the circuit. It could cause your power strip or outlet to melt, cause your breakers to start tripping; It could even start a fire. If you get a new console it might be time to have an electrician add a new outlet.

Hot Tub or Pool
We’ve all thought about what we’d do with a big Christmas bonus. Some of us might want to get our family a pool or better yet a hot tub.

While pool companies can do many things for you, very few pool companies have someone qualified to handle electrical installation.
Now that we’re grownups the best gifts are often practical ones. A new dryer, oven, microwave or dishwasher might be the perfect gift. But these upgrades may have special electrical requirements.
