Knowing what service to obtain from an electrical contractor in Beaumont can sometimes be confusing. Electricity is a mystery to most people, and something intimidating as well due to the possible hazards it can create when not properly handled by a trained professional. Sometimes it is hard to know what to tell the contractor before even booking a service call.
At times like this, it is good to work with an organization that knows the industry so well they can anticipate your questions and develop a solution in mind before even booking a call. Working with an electrical contractor that also has a background in lighting design helps even more, as today’s homes are very complex, and the many disciplines such as home wiring, interior lighting, outdoor lighting, and landscape lighting are becoming increasingly interdependent and linked to centralized controls and automation systems.
Illuminations Lighting and Design is just such a company. We have worked for over twenty-five years now as an award-winning electrical contractor servicing Beaumont, Houston, Port Arthur, and the entire Texas Gulf Coast. Our team of certified professionals brings to the table a combination of standard electrical services combined with many advanced disiplines not always available through smaller companies or independent electrical contractors. Beaumont residents can count on receiving from ILD the very best equipment and customer care that will meet all safety compliance codes and that will last for many years to come.
We offer service through six major sub disciplines of electrical contracting to Beaumont homes and businesses.
One of the most commonly asked questions we receive from Beaumont customers is, “When do I need an electrical panel upgrade?”
Generally speaking, you need a new panel any time you outgrow the number of outlets in your home.
If you are using power strips to plug multiple appliances into single outlets, please understand that this is dangerous. These strips are NOT surge suppressors and can create both power fluctuations and even fire hazards.
When you have more appliances than plugs, call ILD for a free assessment of your current electrical panel and an affordable replacement if determined necessary.
Sometimes too, panels in older homes simply begin to wear out. You may notice that even after tripping the breakers or replacing fuses that some lights simply won’t come back on.
A number of things can be done to correct this. If the panel itself does not need replacing, perhaps new breakers or a new fuse box can do the job. Line stabilizers can also help regulate the current flow better, and can be used in conjunction with whole house surge suppressors and home generators as part of hurricane preparedness.
As a full Beaumont electrical contractor, we pinpoint what needs to be repaired, upgraded, or replaced so you won’t have to do the guesswork yourself.
If you are adding new rooms to your Beaumont home, consider hiring a contractor for electrical remodeling services. Anytime new floor space and walls are added to a house, new circuits have to be installed to support new lighting and new power outlets. Also, older homes in the Beaumont area that were built with aluminum wire also require electrical remodeling in order to meet current safety codes and minimize the chances of a fire. Electrical contractors such as ILD can “pigtail” aluminum wire with copper ends in order to prevent the aluminum from deteriorating and short-circuiting.
Home Electrical Generators
A home electrical generator is an absolute must for any Gulf Coast city facing the imminent threat of hurricanes.
ILD serves Beaumont not only as an electrical contractor, but also a vendor of top commercial-grade electrical generators.
We can install a generator that will power your essential appliances in the event of a major storm or hurricane, or we can install a larger model that will power your entire house as a temporary substitute for light company service.
We have a variety of models that run off propane and diesel that will operate longer than standard, retail gas-powered generators.
As new homes go up all over Beaumont, electrical contractors are called upon more and more to participate in the planning and building phase of new home construction.
ILD has cross-trained its technicians in architectural design and partnered with many builders throughout Texas for over two decades now.
We take both a practical and an aesthetic approach to new home wiring, controls and recessed lighting.
We ensure full regulatory compliance and electrical safety through the careful work of our certified professionals.
We also design electrical wiring systems to accommodate ultra-modern lighting fixtures and controls that you may want to add in the future, and we also build them to be compatible with any home theater equipment you may want to consider down the line.
Whole house surge suppressors protect against transient power surges that can strike any part of the city, and particularly afflict the rural areas surrounding Beaumont.
These surges can literally destroy every appliance and every piece of high tech equipment in your home.
Retail power strips will NOT block this surge.
ILD is a Beaumont electrical contractor licensed to sell and install whole house surge suppressors that can block spikes of up to 300,000A.
This will protect any device that is plugged into the wall that operates off a printed circuit board (which is virtually everything in today’s world of electronics).
Homes measuring from 6,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet require advanced electrical installation techniques that some Beaumont contractors may not be equipped to provide.
As a Beaumont contractor that multi-specializes in lighting control, home control and automation, and home theater, ILD can create complex electrical distribution systems that are still very user friendly.
We do this by creating a central power source in a mechanical room, then linking this through low voltage wires to other electrical subsystems and keypad controls that make operating the system as easy as turning a knob or pressing a button.
Before doing any type of work on a Beaumont home, our electrical contractors meet with the owner first to asses both need and client budget. After determining the safest, most effective course of action, we draw upon over two decades of electrical design and engineering experience and combine that with knowledge acquired from four other major specialties we have mastered over the years.
