We can bring your older home into the modern era!

Unless you’re building a new home from the ground up, it’s a good bet that you had plenty of renovations in mind when you purchased your home. It’s all about “location, location, location” when it comes to real estate, and sometimes, the only way you can afford to move to your desired neighborhood is by purchasing a home that needs some work. Electrical wiring should also be inspected at least every 25 years or sooner if you’re unsure when it was last inspected. The good news is that our team at Gary Houston Electric is here to help! We’ve been the most trusted residential electrician in Little Rock since 1978, and we’re always a phone call away when you want to schedule an in-home safety evaluation.

Home builders of yesteryear never imagined how many electronic devices an average family now uses, and many homeowners rely extensively on power strips throughout their homes. We can also install additional outlets in your home office and entertainment center with built-in surge protectors, and you can put those power strips away for good!

If the home was built before 1969, you might still have a few ungrounded two-prong outlets. We’ll remove or replace outdated or nonfunctional outlets and ensure you have outlets with ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) in your kitchen, bathroom, and outdoors. GFCI outlets offer an additional level of protection in the event of an overload, and they’re a crucial safety feature any time you’re using electrical appliances or power tools near water.

An inexpensive programmable thermostat is a great way to lower your energy costs if used correctly, and newer models even feature Bluetooth connectivity so you can control them with your smartphone. Arkansas weather can be notoriously fickle, and you can adjust your home temperature with your smartphone no matter where you are. But it doesn’t stop there! You can also remotely control your home lighting, monitor your security system, and even control your Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices!

If you have questions about home electrical upgrades or would like to schedule service, contact us online or at 501-375-8330. We’re ready to help you bring your home into the digital age, and you can always hire us with confidence because your satisfaction is guaranteed!
