The safety and well-being of your family is your top priority, and that of Randy’s Electric as well. We have spent years troubleshooting minor home electrical issues in Minneapolis, fixing them before they become major problems that can endanger everyone inside your home. Call a professional with Randy’s Electric and we will perform the routine checks and maintenance that will help prevent electrical fires, power outages and other problems caused by dangerous malfunctions.
When the elements turn brutal, they can have a serious effect on your home’s outside wiring. Many homes house outside wiring in PVC pipe, which is a good option but can also become damaged over time due to weather. When PVC is exposed to the elements it can become brittle and crack easily – it is common for ice build up to cause this to happen. And when that happens, the electrical cables inside can be exposed.
We can replace your PVC with a metal conduit to house your outside cables. Since metal never becomes brittle, it will last much longer and make your home that much safer. If you have outside electrical equipment, metal will be a significant upgrade.
If not used properly, a generator can be a substantial safety hazard. Many models require connecting to the wiring inside of your home; this job requires the expertise of an experienced professional. We have a great deal of experience in wiring home generators and can get the job done efficiently and safely.
We will install a manual transfer switch that will not only protect our workers by preventing the back feed of electricity into our lines, it will also prevent damage to your generator, appliances and home wiring when power is restored after an outage.
You should always make sure you use a portable generator outdoors in order to prevent the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Use it in a dry, well-ventilated area that is located away from your home’s air intakes. Try to use it only in an area that is protected from rain and snow, such as a canopy, carport or open shed.
Most people are well aware that you should change your smoke detector batteries once a year, but do you also know that you should replace not only your smoke detectors but also your carbon monoxide detectors every eight to 10 years? We can quickly and efficiently replace all of your detectors so that you can make sure they are wired correctly and comply with all applicable safety codes.
If your smoke detector makes a “chirping” sound, you’ll probably assume you’ll need a new battery. But that is not always the case. If you continually hear that sound even after you switch out the battery, call a technician with Randy’s Electric.

As a result, you will be fully informed of the work that needs to be done and you won’t have any surprises. Call us today to schedule an appointment so we can give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your electrical system is operating safely.
