Our electricians can help you in the following ways.

Home and Lighting Upgrades

On the journey to making a house a home there are always the challenges of making your home fit your needs. Our team loves nothing more than to take the aggravation of not having what you need in your home and making that a thing of the past while also making sure that your electrical system will work safely. Some common projects are:

  • Light Fixtures

  • Upgrading systems so they aren’t overloaded by equipment or appliances

  • Switching to safer, modern outlets or adding in outlets with

    • Night lights

    • USB and USB-C ports

Security Upgrades

With the progression of technology one of the most common upgrades to homes has been the inclusion of a home security system. Our team of professionals will ease the frustrating process of installation and set up of these systems and bring your home security dreams to life. With our main goal of giving our customers peace of mind our team can install the following:

  • Motion lights

  • Door and window sensors

  • Doorbell mounted cameras

  • CCTV (closed circuit television)

  • Any combination of the above and anything else you may need

Roof Heat Cables

The weather in Blackfoot is cold and snowy for a lot of the year just like the rest of Southeast Idaho. Snow accumulating on the roof of your house can cause issues and compromise your roof and lead to leaks and damage. Heat cables are designed to help melt the snow on the roof. Installation and or repair of roof heating cables should be performed by a trained electrician. If you hate putting up your Christmas lights, you most definitely don’t want to climb on the roof to install a more technical form of cable such as this. 

Irrigation Pumps

Blackfoot is home to the potato museum as well as a whole lot of potato farmers and other farms such as wheat and sugar beets. Irrigation pumps are used by all kinds of farmers. These pumps can be complex and require installation by a trained professional. They also are often near water sources and we all know that water and electrical currents together are a risky situation to navigate. Our electricians have experience installing irrigation pumps as well as fixing electrical problems that may arise with them.

Other Jobs We Can Accomplish

Chances are our team of electricians has seen the problem before, or if not, one similar to it. We pride ourselves on finding answers to hard problems. We won’t stop until we’ve created a solution that is done to the standard that we hold ourselves to.


Q: Should I be worried about outlets that don’t work?

A: Outlets that are not working properly can be a sign of larger problems with the electrical in your home. If an outlet isn’t working it simply means there is a failed connection somewhere. Loose wires are a common cause of outlets shorting, and loose wires are considered a dangerous fire hazard as well. If you have an outlet that doesn’t work, contact your local electrician as soon as possible. 


Q: How do I know what is tripping my circuit breaker? 

A: If you want to find out what is causing your breaker to trip, it might take some trial and error. One way to be sure you have found the problem is to unplug everything on that circuit and reset it. Wait a few minutes and start plugging items back in one by one. A common cause of a breaker tripping is if it is overloaded. Power strips are a good way to not crowd one single outlet. 


Q: How expensive would it be to charge an electric vehicle at my home? 

A: Our electricians are certified to install car charging stations at your home. Aside from the cost of the initial set-up, the cost per month to charge an EV will depend on your rate of kilowatts per hour. The average cost is $5-10 for a full charge and around $60 per month for one electric vehicle. These are all averages and will depend on electricity rates, how far and how often you travel, etc. 


Q: What are some ways to save money on my electric bill?

A:One easy way to save money on your electric bill is to use more power strips with an on/off switch and turn them off when not in use. Windows can be a drain to your bill. Old windows that are not sealed properly should be replaced. If you can, invest in a programmable thermostat that can be controlled remotely. As light bulbs burn out, replace them with high efficiency LED bulbs.
