CurrentSAFE

Detect electrical hazards before they become a serious problem.

As a CurrentSAFE Partner, we’re trained to analyze and diagnose your entire electrical system, both inside and out.  We have the most complete and comprehensive non-destructive system for conducting Electrical Hazard Detection (EHD) in the home today.

Unlike most electrical contractors, our electricians are CurrentSAFE certified experts in electrical hazard detection.   They are highly trained in all aspects of electrical safety and testing. Our electricians thoroughly inspect, test, safety check, and evaluate all the electrical system components of your home. They don’t guess or speculate when it comes to accurately finding core problems and recommending cost-effect solutions. The result of the comprehensive evaluation is an understanding that your electrical system is safe for you and your family, and delivering clean power.

Electrical Safety and Testing

Peace of mind for you and your family.

  • Electrical hazard detection
  • Electrical safety inspections
  • Greatly reduce the risk of electrical fire
  • Identify electrical shock hazards
  • Assure clean, dependable power to home electronic equipment

This is a non-destructive testing procedure requiring no cutting, drilling or removal of wall materials and is normally completed in less than a day!

A home electrical fire at one time or another is a concern for many homeowners, but with household wiring hidden behind walls and ceilings, there is no reliable way to detect a potential hazard.

Now, there is a way to help alleviate that concern and provide peace of mind for families — CurrentSAFE Home Electrical Hazard Detection Service.

CurrentSAFE utilizes revolutionary methods of testing and diagnosing electrical problems in your home which could lead to dangerous shock and fire hazards.  CurrentSAFE trained technicians utilize newly-developed technology which allows them to “look behind walls”. They can pinpoint electrical wiring problems which could jeopardize your families safety.

CurrentSAFE can find dangerous wiring issues including:

  • Low Voltage Conditon
  • Loose Connections
  • Underzided Wiring
  • High Resistance  Connections
  • Phase Imbalance
  • Malfunctioning Circuit Breakers
  • Overloaded Circuits
  • Improper Grounding
  • Overheating

Lightning Strike Test

CurrentSAFE – After Lightning Strikes

CurrentSAFE is the test we perform on homes after lightning strikes, electrical surges, and overall electrical hazard detection. We have come across many lightning strikes that have exploded electrical equipment off the walls of homes, and that same power surge that damages electronics also damages the wiring in the walls.

Why CurrentSAFE instead of Megger Test?

CurrentSAFE is nondestructive.

The Megger test sends a 500 volt to 1,000 volt DC current across an electrical system that is designed for 240 volts AC. The test voltage is two to four times greater than the normal operating voltage, and can be very destructive. The test current has been known to destroy lights bulbs and printed circuit boards that have been inadvertently left in the electrical system as it is being tested. So instead of testing for damage the megger test can cause damage. The CurrentSAFE Service is a completely nondestructive test in virtually all aspects. You cannot create more damage with any test instrument that is used in the CurrentSAFE Service.

 

CurrentSAFE can pinpoint the problem.

If you do a megger test and the resistance of the conductor insulation fails the only thing that you know is that somewhere along the entire length of the circuit the insulation had become defective. The question is where do you start to look for the problem. It is like trying to find the so called needle in the hay stack. With the CurrentSAFE Service we methodically check every inch of wire in the electrical system, and every switch, every receptacle, and every light fixture outlet to insure that no latent defects from the Lightning Strike exist.

CurrentSafe is more thorough.

A megger test is very limited and only measures one value in the electrical system. Meggers only test the resistance of the conductor insulation. Meggers cannot test the resistance of the conductor material itself. A very important part of an electrical system test is to determine the resistance in the path of the electrical current. Resistance in the normal current path due to a damaged connection caused by the energy of a Lightning Strike would never be detected by a megger test. Increased resistance in the normal current path caused by a Lighting Strike can create a poor electrical connection which can build up sufficient enough heat to start a fire in an outlet or junction box.
