Is your Fairfield County home in need of electrical work such as ceiling fan installation services, loose wall switch repair, or installing light fixtures? Time to call an electrician—or is it?

Fairfield County Ceiling Fan Installation, Replacement & Repair

If you don't currently have a ceiling fan, or your old one isn't working very well, you may not know what a huge difference proper air circulation makes for the comfort of Fairfield County homes throughout the year. They’re not just for cooling. They also help move fresh air throughout the house, and you can reverse the direction of your fan to recirculate warm air that rises to the ceiling during winter months.

A capable Fairfield County handyman will take care of all the parts of ceiling fan installation, including motor assembly, blade assembly, fan housing, and ceiling fan wiring, as well as putting in the ceiling fan box and switch housings. We are experienced with ceiling fan installation in challenging areas, such as a double-height or sloped ceiling. We also repair or replace broken ceiling fan parts—and we’ll even offer you some expert repair advice during your ceiling fan installation appointment!

Light Fixture Installation & Repair

You already have lighting fixtures in your home, but you may need additional lighting to provide adequate illumination for your Fairfield County home. Or, maybe your old ceiling fixture is long overdue for a replacement. Have you ever seen faux plastic "candles" on a chandelier start to actually melt? It's not a pretty sight—or smell.

Whether you want a new chandelier installed or just need help with a hard-to-reach light bulb, you can depend on your local Fairfield County handyman to install, repair, or replace interior and exterior lighting fixtures safely and efficiently.

TV Wall Mounting

You've got a brand-new, beautiful, flat-screen television, and nowhere to put it. If you have a stretch of wall big enough to support the majesty of your new TV, our team will get the TV wall mount situated perfectly and install the television on it so all you need to do is sit back with the remote control. Don't constrain yourself to the living room—we can put a TV wall mount in your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or even on an exterior wall, so you can watch the game while you grill dinner!

Repair Loose Wall Switches & Sockets

Does your wall switch or socket shift around or rattle when you touch it? It could just be a loose switch plate cover, but if the movement causes the light to flicker or dim, there's something wrong with the electrical connections under the cover. We'll get the wiring repaired and the switch plate securely fastened, so you won't experience any more difficulty with the switch or socket. We can also swap out the switch plate for a different style—there's a surprising variety of colors and styles available for an elegant (or humorous) replacement.

Install Dimmers, Timers, & Motion Detectors

Are you constantly going from room to room, turning off lights that were carelessly left on in hopes you can save a little on your utility bills? You can increase the energy efficiency of your home and lower your energy bills by having your handyman install dimmers, timers, and motion detectors for your lighting. Looking for more ways to keep your money in your bank account? Here are six Fairfield County handyman services that save money on energy costs.

Don't need the light at its maximum wattage? Create some mood lighting with a simple dimmer switch and save energy while you're at it. Timers help preserve energy by automatically switching the lights off after a set amount of time. That may sound annoying, but it's very useful in areas where you frequently go for a short amount of time. For example, if you have a deep freeze in the garage and pop in there for a minute or two to grab something out of the freezer, a timer will help you out by shutting off the light within a set amount of time, so you don't have to worry about it. Or, use motion detectors that only keep the light on when someone is moving around in the space. Motion detectors can also be part of a home security system that turns on or rotates a security camera when it detects motion near your exterior doors.

Install Smoke Detectors & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

It's extremely important for the safety of your home and family to have functioning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed. While it may be irritating to have a smoke detector go off when there's no real emergency — especially if you're the type of cook who could burn water—it's worth the minor annoyance to have the peace of mind of knowing you'll be alerted in the event of a real fire or a carbon monoxide leak. Since carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas, a functioning carbon monoxide detector is the only way most Fairfield County homeowners discover a hazardous leak.

The problem is, those detectors tend to be located in difficult-to-reach areas, which makes it a challenge to install and check them—particularly if you're not willing or able to climb up on a wobbly ladder. We'll get them fully installed and check to make sure they're working as intended.

Pet Door Installation

You may be wondering what pet doors have to do with electrical work in Fairfield County—aren’t they just a little rubber flap that your dog or cat can push their way through? The problem with that traditional pet door style is that it doesn't just let your pet in and out. It's an open invitation to all sorts of unwelcome characters, from stray animals and skunks to insects and rodents.

Pet doors have come a long way, and manufacturers have worked out several ways to deal with that issue. There are electronic pet doors that respond to a special tag on your pet's collar, so they only open when your furry friend approaches the door and remain firmly shut to anyone or anything that isn't carrying the electromagnetic tag. These and other types of pet doors can be installed in your exterior door—or even through a wall!
