Stereo and home cinema devices can be a shock to an old system. Heavy duty washing machines, dryers and dishwashers draw a great deal of energy. Your home was never designed for refrigerators, microwave ovens and garbage disposals to run simultaneously. We would be willing to bet that a breaker trips occur at least once a week. This is the life of people that reside in historic homes. When you experience system overloads, contact us for electrical repair.
