Electrical Repair in the Twin Cities
Aquarius Home Services is a trusted name in Minnesota, providing residents with affordable and reliable electrical repair solutions. Here are some of the services offered in the region:
Service Panel Repair
The electrical panel controls nearly every powered device in your home, and any failure means you won’t be able to use your appliances. The service panel can go bad for many reasons, like a broken circuit breaker or loose wiring. Our qualified electricians will inspect the electrical panel and get it repaired as soon as possible, so you can enjoy a safe and uninterrupted electric supply.
If your home is the only one in the neighborhood experiencing frequent power outages, the chances are that you’re dealing with a severe electrical fault. Intermittent power can be caused by snapped wires, an overloaded supply unit, or outdated circuitry. If you need help diagnosing the power outages in your home, contact Aquarius for specialized assistance.
Flickering lights when an appliance is turned on could signal voltage fluctuations. It usually happens when the device draws more power than the supply unit can handle. The electrical panel in a modern home should have a 200-Amp rating to meet the consumption needs. Flickering lights could also indicate short circuits or substandard electrical work. Aquarius can help you diagnose and fix the system.
When you have an electrical emergency, you need a team responding on short notice, providing the required repair services. While some emergencies like fallen power lines can be obvious, buzzing sounds in your breaker box or burning smells also require immediate attention from a qualified electrician. Aquarius has a team working round the clock to ensure that your electricity supply is fully operational, even when you’re experiencing a total outage.
A burnt outlet signals a fault in your electrical system. When this happens, shut off the power at the circuit breaker and call a licensed electrician to check it out. If you need a trustworthy electrician to fix your system, contact Aquarius, and we’ll send one your way.
Outlet Repair / Replacement
Outlets die because of short circuits, tripped breakers, or normal wear and tear. Many homeowners choose to replace an outlet on their own, but calling an electrician is the best idea, especially when you’re not sure if you’re dealing with a more serious issue. It is also safe to engage an expert to avoid unnecessary accidents.
It’s hard to know where to start troubleshooting when you have an electrical problem but little experience handling it. Finding the problem within a broken system is tougher than you think, and it takes an experienced electrician to troubleshoot and fix it.
A tripping circuit breaker is the first sign that something is wrong with your system, like a short circuit in one of the appliances or somewhere within the wiring. We’ll send an expert your way to ensure that your breakers work efficiently, and your system runs as required.
Problems with the ceiling fan can be hard to resolve when you don’t have any electrical experience. Our team can check out the wiring in a broken fan and help with installation if you need a replacement.
We will help you solve all forms of electrical damage such as:
- Storm damage
- Lightning damage
- Pests damage
- Moisture damage
- Fire damage

When’s the Right Time to Rewire a House?
Most experts agree that household wiring has an average lifespan of 25 years. Besides, houses built before 1965 were not legally required to install grounding. However, the current load on the system, the types of cable used, and the alterations made have a huge role in the rewiring decision. If your home falls in that category, it is time to have it rewired.
What Is the Most Common Cause of Electrical Issues?
Electrical problems around the home can be caused by bad wiring, damaged cables, aged equipment, and poor modifications. Some issues to look out for include:
- Frequent power surges
- Flickering lights
- Tripping circuit breakers
- Electrical shocks from appliances
- Excessively high electricity bills.
Talk to a licensed electrician if you experience any of these issues in your home.
Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Electrical Rewiring?
Homeowner’s insurance covers electrical wiring. However, you may face higher premiums or experience issues filing for claims when you have outdated or poorly installed connections. The knob and tube system used in older homes, for instance, is considered a safety hazard in modern buildings. Ensure that you request a discount on premiums if you’ve recently updated your wiring.
Should I DIY My Repairs?
DIY electrical jobs are never a good idea unless you’re a certified electrician. Electrical repair jobs expose you to life-threatening accidents, and incorrect installation can destroy your appliances besides creating a fire safety risk in your home. You’ll be better off working with a qualified professional if you want quality work while ensuring that everything is up to code.
