So Many Gadgets So Little Space

If your home is like most homes, you have multiple devices taking up counter spaces. In 2014, the average home had at least 3 internet connected devices, and that number is only rising. The problem with all these devices is where to charge them all. Nipper Electric can solve that problem with a few simple additions:

  • Receptacle Installation- Do you find yourself fighting for plug-in space or tripping over power strips? Maybe you have to move furniture just to get to an outlet. Then it is definitely time for some additional or new outlets. Outlets are also called receptacles. They are an easy fix for a trusted electrician. Simply decide where you want to place the new outlet and Nipper Electric can come and rewire it. If the space you’ve chosen doesn’t fit wiring, we can help by rewiring or advising other places for outlets.


  • USB Port Installations – Installing USB charging stations with your regular or new receptacles is a quick and easy fix. USB ports in outlets are a great space saver and a wonderful solution to overcrowded plugs. Phones, laptops, tablets, and many other devices can charge in the USB port while outlets are left open for other uses, like lamps or TVs.

Feeling the Drag

If you’ve noticed a drag in your charging, fuses blowing or lights flickering, you might be overloading your panel. Electrical panels have a limit of how much electricity they provide. Many older homes max out at 100 amps on their panels. Even newer homes are feeling the strain of 200 amps when each device adds more to the electrical load. Once you’ve gone over the load limit, your circuits are strained and your panel can get start to fail. The strain can lead to other issues like warm plugs, frayed wiring, and even house fires. Luckily there are two simple fixes.

  • Panel Upgrade or Additions- Upgrading your panel or adding a second panel can help ease the strain felt by many different devices.
  • Going Green- From light bulbs to kitchen appliances, to thermostats and even cars, everything is going green. Using energy efficient gadgets lowers your electrical load and your power bill. Nipper Electric is proud to be the green electrician in Virginia Beach. We can do it all including:
