Serving the Montgomery and Auburn areas since 1908, Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is committed to your safety. Our professional service technicians are fully trained and licensed, and will take the extra time to make sure your home is cared for and protected against all dangers, including house fires.
This is important to note because, unfortunately, Alabama has one of the highest rates of house fires in the nation. This can be attributed to numerous causes, but the primary reason is that many homes in the state feature old electrical systems wired with aluminum. Aluminum is unsafe because it is an unstable metal that melts at lower temperatures than copper wiring. If your home was built and wired with aluminum and it has been more than one year since your electrical system has been inspected, it’s time to call us for a Safe & Sound Inspection. This exclusive service utilizes the latest and most dependable technologies – including Ultrasonic Arc Detection and Infrared Thermal Imaging and Circuit Tracing – to locate and detect potential fire hazards in your home’s electrical system.
As part of our Safe & Sound Inspection, we also perform a GFI receptacle check. A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is an electrical outlet that protects against electrical shock. Also referred to as a GFI, these outlets are required in most states, especially in “wet” and hazard areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Our technicians will inspect and test all GFCI outlet receptacles to ensure they are wired properly and operating correctly.
Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help our customers with any electrical emergency or service. In addition to Gfi receptacles, arc fault breakers, we can also help you with installation of ceiling fans and other fixtures, recessed, security and landscape lighting, Seimens Electrical Panels, Sycom Surge Protectors — even smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Call Dixie, and it’s done!
