All Weathers Electric owner and operator Roy Weathers provides electrical work throughout northeastern Oklahoma.
During spring and summer, people spend a lot of time in their outdoor living spaces. All Weathers Electric specializes in landscape lighting and electrical services for the outdoor environment. They provide low voltage or 120-volt outdoor lighting systems for sidewalks, flowerbeds or wherever else needed. Low voltage lighting is slightly more economical but can have limitations, depending upon the desired effect the customer has in mind. All Weathers Electric can also set up the electrical package and power source for decorative ponds and swimming pools.
Any wet environment in which electricity is being supplied necessitates receptacles equipped with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). These are the electrical receptacles that have the small “Test” and “Reset” buttons. Have you ever wondered what these buttons are used for and why they are not in every room of your house? You’ll usually find them in places that have appliances or water sources, like kitchens, bathrooms or outdoors – any area that needs more protection than others. A GFCI receptacle has the ability to halt the flow of electricity. If the circuit suffers a ground fault, stopping the flow of electricity can help prevent serious injury.
The trade of electrician is safety-regulated because electricity can be extremely dangerous if handled improperly. All Weathers Electric has licensed and bonded electricians who are Journeyman rated. Certain types of electrical work, according to state and local laws, can only be performed by a Journeyman-rated electrician.
Roy Weathers, owner and operator of All Weathers Electric, advises consumers to take precautions and know exactly who you are hiring to do electrical contract work in your home, business or outdoor living area.
Roy has owned All Weathers Electric for two years. The Collinsville-based company contracts residential and commercial work in Tulsa, Owasso, Broken Arrow and other communities throughout northeastern Oklahoma.
“This business has been built around an all-out effort to achieve the highest standards of service. We go above and beyond the call to make every job a positive experience for the customer,” said Roy.
In addition to outdoor electrical services, the company offers a maintenance package that includes meter checking every electrical component in your home or business. During this process, electricians hand-tighten all terminals on the breaker box, as they are known to loosen with time and create serious hazards.
All Weathers Electric can install ceiling fans and hot tubs and fulfill the electrical requirements for remodels or new constructions. They also perform attic inspections to check for open junction boxes, open wiring and wiring that has been stripped bare by squirrels or rodents.
“Give us a call at All Weathers Electric. We will come to your home or business and provide a quote on your next electrical project’s requirements,” said Roy. “No job is too big or too small for us to tackle.”
