Egory Our licensed and insured electricians are ready and waiting to serve Rancho Cordova homeowners. Our team is all part of one of the 4 classifications of electricians.

Journeymen electricians are certified to work independently on most jobs, but are monitored by a master electrician. That last category is for those who have reached the height of the professional They can handle any electrical issue that might come up.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
Installing a ground fault circuit interrupter can keep you and your family safe from electrocution and shocks. When an electrical current comes into contact with water, it can mean big trouble. A GFCI shuts off power to an outlet if it senses that the current has gone into the water. That way the risk of shock is lessened. They are usually found in kitchens and bathrooms for that reason. Make sure to test your outlet every month, but a GFCI that isn’t working is no use to you. If your GFCI does not shut off power during the test, then call Bonney to replace it right away, before you need it.
Landscape and Outdoor Lighting Installation
If you are looking to spruce up the appearance of the exterior of your home, then outdoor or landscape lighting may be just what you are looking for.

Make sure to keep your fixtures clear of dirt, leaves, and branches, as they can cause serious damage. A Bonney specialist will work with you to design an outdoor lighting system that you will love.

- Never use extension cords as a permanent solution
- Replace cords immediately if you see any damage
- Never use water to put out electrical fires, use fire extinguishers

- Schedule annual electrical inspections
- Unplug appliances that emit sparks
Please follow the safety tips above that help keep everyone safe.
Home LED Lighting
If you aren’t already considering making the switch to LED lighting for your home, you certainly should be. LED lighting provides many benefits over traditional incandescent bulbs. For instance, they are much more energy efficient, so you will make back your initial investment pretty quickly. Bulbs also have a much longer lifespan. They can sometimes last around 20 years. They also give off less heat, so there is less risk of injury or fire. Plus, they do not burn out suddenly, potentially leaving you in a difficult position. They burn out slowly, so you will have plenty of warning time to get new bulbs.
Power surges can wreak havoc on your electrical system. Not only that, but they can damage your electronics if they get overloaded. Usually, a power surge is the result of a lightning strike or from faulty wiring. A home surge suppressor will keep the electricity level in your system at a manageable level, protecting you and your electrical system from harm.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Never skip anything when it comes to the safety and security of those in your household. That includes smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure to have at least one smoke detector on every floor, and a carbon monoxide detector near any sleeping areas. Batteries need to be replaced every 6 months to be absolutely sure the alarms won’t fail. Smoke detectors should be replaced completely every 10 years, and every 7 years for CO detectors.
Electric Panel Services
The electric panel is the nerve center of your entire electrical system. If you have noticed recently that your lights are flickering, or your breakers are tripping, or that there is a strange unidentified smell in the air, you may have a panel problem. Many older panels do not have the capacity to handle the power demands of a modern household. One of our Bonney specialists can take a look at your panel and make any upgrades to make sure that it can handle the load going forward.
Increase the visual appeal, and the comfort, of any room in the home with a great ceiling fan. The key is finding a fan that fits the room in which you are installing it. You can’t go too small, or else the fan won’t cover the entire room. You also can’t go too big, as the blades could strike the walls, or the breeze could overwhelm the room. If you are looking at installing a new ceiling fan, consult with an expert at Bonney first. We will discuss with you what size would be appropriate, and install it for you safely and securely.
We already know that your electric panel may wear down over time, but your wires can, too. Sometimes it’s due to age, and sometimes it’s because the last electrical contractor you hired used sub-standard material to cut costs. Failing wires can pose a danger, and can also make your electrical system run inefficiently. Make sure that if you see any signs of your wires starting to fail, you call Bonney right away.
The signs below will let you know your home needs some rewiring:
- Circuit breakers regularly tripping
- Aluminum wiring, which is a major fire risk
- Any vibration, shock or buzz when turning on appliances
- Dimming or flickering lights when using appliances such as a vacuum
- Loose electrical outlets
- A house that more than 40 years old
- A burning smell coming from electrical outlets
If you notice any of the above issues, or if you need assistance with any of the issues listed above, please call Bonney today.
