We have created some resources including how-to and informational videos to answer some of the recurring questions we get from our clients. Please check out the topics below.
These videos are intended as a guide but we never advise doing anything that you are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with. Only a licensed electrician should remove your panel cover or touch the wiring in your home or business. If you need assistance with an electrical issue, please call 715-539-3220.

Please watch the video below to see how to reset your outlet.
If you have multiple outlets or lights that aren’t working, it could be that a breaker has tripped. Watch the video below to see how to check if any circuit breakers in your panel have tripped and how to reset them if they have.
