Update Old Wiring or Prepare for Remodeling

If your home’s wiring is a few decades old, it may be time to update it with an electrician in Arlington, especially if you have a historic home. Outdated wiring can impact the function and safety of your electrical system, leading to flickering lights, tripping circuit breakers, and even the risk of fire.

CoreTrade Electric can inspect and update your old wiring to ensure your home is safe. We can also help you prepare for your next remodeling project by planning and updating the electrical for your new space, whether you need to add outlets, appliances, or new lighting.

Switch to Indoor or Outdoor LED Lighting

LED lighting is becoming popular among homeowners because of its versatility and energy efficiency. LED lights last up to five times longer than fluorescent or incandescent lighting, which means fewer bulb changes and less waste.

Our team can update your interior or exterior lighting to LED. Let us swap out your lights and update wiring as necessary to ensure your home is energy efficient and has the ambiance you want for your most-used spaces.

Arlington Lighting Installation

Whether you’re remodeling your home or just want to refresh its style and ambiance with new light fixtures, CoreTrade Electric can help. We provide new lighting installation in Arlington as well as light replacement.

From custom lighting to track lights, wafer lights, and wall sconces, we work with you to ensure your new light fixtures provide the look and feel you want for your beautiful home. We can install any type of light fixture to ensure you get the style and brightness you need.

Install an EV Charging Station at Your Home

Having a hybrid or electric vehicle is a great way to get where you need to go without traditional fuel sources. But most homes are not equipped to charge an electric vehicle, especially not efficiently. Without a home charger, public charging or charging that takes many hours is the only option.

CoreTrade Electric provides home EV charging station installation in Arlington. Let us inspect and update your electrical system as necessary to ensure safe and efficient charging for your vehicle. We help you choose the right charger and location to meet your needs.
