Our Electrician Service FAQs

The cost for an electrical contractor to fix existing or ongoing electrical problems in your house varies drastically based on a wide range of issues.

There are several factors at play, including:

  • The size of your home
  • Severity of the problem
  • A technician’s diagnosis, following a thorough inspection

Providing a hard estimate is difficult without knowing any of the above.

However, we do recommend that if you are concerned about electrical problems in your home, you call in a professional to take a look; it is NOT advisable to delay or leave the problem because of worries about price. Ignoring electrical problems could lead to much more dangerous issues down the road.

If water has made its way into an electrical outlet in your home, turn off the breaker and search for the cause.

See if it’s a major or minor amount of water – for example, is it just a one-off issue? Or has a pipe burst or started leaking?

Determining the cause of the problem will help you know who to call, as you may also need a plumber in the event the issue is related to your home’s pipes.

Once you know the cause of the problem, give us a call at (437) 374-0261 or book a home electrical service online today.

To fix a tripped circuit breaker, switch the breaker fully off and on.

If this does not fix the problem, call us at (437) 374-0261 or book a home electrical service online today.

A lack of voltage may be an issue with your hydro provider, or it may be due to loose wiring in the home.

We recommend calling your hydro provider first to determine if the problem is on their end. If not, call us at (437) 374-0261.

An electrical wall outlet may stop working due to an issue with the breaker. It may also be a result of a broken GCFI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet.

The wire inside may also have disconnected.

It’s best to leave finding the cause to a professional who can diagnose the issue and fix it safely.

This issue is likely due to a bad breaker.

If this has happened in your home and it’s time for a replacement circuit breaker, call us at (437) 374-0261 or book a home electrical service online today.

If they’re on the same circuit, this could be due to a bad breaker or a poor wiring job.

We can diagnose this for you, so call us and our professional electrical contractors will find & fix the problem.

This may be an issue with your current hydro provider or a loose wire in your home.

If the issue begins outside, it could also be related to weather conditions; for example, heavy winds, rains or a thunderstorm.

WARNING: It is extremely dangerous to attempt ANY electrical work in your home by yourself. Doing so could result in serious injury or death.

Please call a professional to inspect, diagnose & fix any electrical issues you may be experiencing at home.

The cost for a residential electrical wiring service varies drastically based on a wide range of issues.

There are several factors at play, including:

The size of your home
The size of the wiring project
The scope of the wiring project – for example, new additions such as media rooms, sound systems, security systems, etc.

Providing a hard estimate is difficult without knowing any of the above.

To get started on a home assessment, contact the pros at Mersey today.

These are some signs of poor electrical wiring in your home:

  • Melting, slightly melted or discoloured wire in panel
  • Melting, slightly melted or discoloured plugs/outlets
  • Flickering lights
  • Breakers constantly tripping

If you’ve noticed some or all of these signs, it may be time for an electrical inspection & rewiring, contact the pros at Mersey today.

If your home is on aluminum electrical wiring, you should call an electrical contractor to replace it right away.

Aluminum wiring is not safe, and most insurance companies will no longer allow for coverage of homes that still use it.

If your home is on knob & tube wiring, you might want to consider upgrading to a more modern system.

How long it takes an electrical contractor to wire a house depends largely on the house’s size.

For a bungalow, for example, a relative estimate would be about one week. Homes with additional floors can expect an extra week for each floor.

This is still, however, an estimate; the actual time will vary from house to house and project to project.

Professional electricians take pride in their work.

One good example: if the breaker box in a house isn’t square, but instead appears crooked or shoddily placed on the wall, it’s likely the home’s electrical work was not done by a professional or certified contractor.

Copper wiring will last a very long time.

Aluminum, however, will last around 20 years, and should be replaced at that point.

No, not yourself; never attempt to move or remove old wiring yourself.

A certified electrical contractor should be dispatched to inspect it themselves and confirm that it is, in fact, unused. Attempting to do so yourself is not safe and could result in severe injury or even death.

What Homeowners Say About Mersey Heating’s HVAC Services

“Just had a new Lennox Elite two stage furnace and air conditioner installed today. This was a deal through Costco. Good discounts and a competitive price, not the lowest, but the service and the overall install and product were excellent. I would highly recommend Mersey Heating if you’re looking for a top notch install with a great line of products and service.”​

“Mersey has excellent products and wonderful service. We had them install our furnace and air conditioning last year and have marveled at their service as well. Nick was our technician today and as with our other service people, gave us prompt, clear (explained everything he was doing), considerate service. 5 stars all the way!”​

“Mersey called to have my air conditioner inspected after one year of installation. This was to ensure that the unit was performing as it was to be. I requested Nick to come out as I had used him previously. He was truly polite and courteous and addressed all of my concerns with great patience. He performed a thorough and complete check of the unit paying attention to all detail as I requested. He also followed proper covid-19 protocols respecting my home. Nick really is top drawer and I will be requesting him once again in the future.”​
