The Gift Of Electrical Needed

This holiday season likely exponentially increased your electrical needs. Mine did. I got the Catch:2 Essentials multi-device wireless charging wrapped in designer-quality Belgian Linen that charges multiple devices at one time. It looks like art on my desk and, of course, it needs to plug in.

I also was gifted the new Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) that features spatial audio with dynamic head tracking places sound all around, and it’s sweat and water resistant. It’s the best of the best. I can even access Siri simply by saying “Hey Siri.” Now I’ll need to get Siri, but there’s always Valentine’s Day. And it plugs in.

I thought about gifting the Centaur Smart Chess Set from the Museum of Modern Art. It plugs in. And it lets anyone play chess against a computer algorithm that learns their playing level and adapts to match it.  There is also a “challenging” setting that causes the Centaur to play slightly above the user’s level, pushing the human’s skills to grow. The last chess set I bought was miniature and carved of marble from a market in Cabo where I bargained for price and fun. 

Bottom line, January is the month to be calling Allstar Electrical to get your home electrical compatible with your thoughtful loved ones who want you tech-nified so that you can Zoom family gatherings, not let your phone call go dead when you’re on an important call that a handful of years ago would have been in person, and so that you can move from living room to bedroom and bathroom and patio and car seamlessly with your tech on and functioning.

Adding outlets can involve upgrading your electrical panel.

Generally speaking, electrical panels need to be replaced every 25 to 40 years. That’s generally. Water heaters can go south on average after 8 years. In theory, 25-40 is a good run. Plenty of people call themselves fortunate to live in one of Denver’s older homes. And that can be reason enough to call on Allstar for an electrical assessment.

Other signs you could use a new panel include:

Your electrical panel is warm to the touch. Any panel that overheats should trigger a tripped circuit breaker. If your panel is overheated, something isn’t triggering.

Noises. If you hear a click…as in a circuit breaker pops…it’s a sign you need a replacement panel.

Burning smell. Get out. Or call Allstar. Your electrical panel should not emit burning smells.

Breaker tripping regularly. If your breaker keeps tripping, it’s a problem. It indicates an insufficient panel for your electrical needs. Call Allstar.

Bottom line: call Allstar for an electrical audit of your home and electrical needs. Call today. It’s a perfectly correct response to electrical tech gift-ology.
