Services We Offer

Most electrical companies don’t provide the full range of services we do. But you can trust us to install, repair, or update any part of your electrical system.  Prompt and courteous, our local electricians will troubleshoot the problem and fix it, no matter how long it takes. Our electrician in Santa Monica is experienced, trained, and licensed for:

  • Electrical Automation: Converting your house to a smart home is no problem for our electricians. We automate landscape lighting, door locks, heating and cooling systems, blinds, and even home security equipment, including security cameras and motion detectors.
  • Electrical Installation: We handle indoor and outdoor installations. From lighting to wiring to electrical fixtures and appliances, our team has the training, tools, and patience to get it right the first time, every time.
  • Electrical Repairs: Our technicians arrive equipped to fix any problem and use high-quality products and materials. No matter the type of electrical repair you need, we offer competitive pricing and discounts.
  • Electrical Remodeling: Home renovations often involve installing LED recessed lighting and advanced controls. You can also count on us to install more outlets and switches, update old wiring, or replace your electrical panel.
  • Electrical Re-Wiring: Whether you have damaged cords, aluminum wiring, old cloth-insulated wiring, or ungrounded wiring, we can replace it and ensure your home is free of electrical safety hazards.  
  • Electrical Panel: Older, lower-capacity panels are shock and fire hazards. They can also easily overload. At Express Electrical Services, we install 200-amp panels in Santa Monica to support the latest, high-tech appliances.
  • Circuit Breakers & Fuse Boxes: If you still have a fuse box, we’ll replace it with a breaker panel to bring your home up to code. Our team also installs and replaces circuit breakers to ensure your electrical system and circuits are fully protected against overloads.
  • Ceiling Fans: From mounting a ceiling fan to wiring one, the process involves hard work. We help select the best type and size of fan and install all required bracing, wiring, mounting equipment, and connections.
  • EV Chargers: Let us install a Level 2 EV charger in your garage so you can charge your EV overnight. We can also hardwire the charging system to your electrical panel and provide charger repair and maintenance.
  • Outlets & Switches & GFCI Outlets: Outdated two-prong outlets should be replaced to ensure your connections are grounded. We also repair and replace switches and, where moisture is present, provide GFCI outlet installation to prevent electric shock.
  • Knob and Tube Wiring Upgrade: Knob and tube electrical systems date back to the 1800s. Therefore, they can’t handle today’s electrical fixtures and appliances. We can replace these antiquated systems and modernize your home.
  • Lighting: Express Electrical Services provides lighting design, installation, and repair for homes in Santa Monica and throughout Southern California. We install exterior, kitchen, bathroom, LED, accent, and motion-activated lighting, as well as dimmers, timers, and controls.

Home Safety Services

When it comes to home safety, we’ve got you covered. Our experienced 24-hour electricians can address:

  • Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Detectors – We follow all state guidelines to protect your home and family, and even hard-wire and interconnect alarms to maximize the benefits.
  • Security Lighting – Flood lights outside your home uncover hiding spots and deter potential intruders or can alert you of a potential problem.
  • Whole House Surge Protection – Powerful currents from outside events, such as lighting, can cause severe damage and fires, but a whole house surge protector will stand guard.  It even protects against smaller internal surges.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Your Credentials?

We are licensed per the California Code of Regulations and are a C-10 – Electrical Contractor. This authorizes us to work with electrical wires, appliances, fixtures, and other components. We can also wire HVAC equipment and can work with building contractors and plumbers.

Can a High Electricity Bill Signal an Electrical Problem?

An increase in your electric bill can mean something is draining electrical power. It can be due to a faulty or aging appliance, damaged wiring, and other problems. Or, the issue can be with your insulation or weatherstripping, which can force your heating or cooling system to work harder and use more electricity.

When Should I Call an Emergency Electrician?

Contact a 24-hour electrician in Santa Monica if you notice:

  • Frequent power surges
  • Circuit breakers don’t stay on
  • Lights often flicker or dim
  • Shocks from plugs, outlets, or appliances
  • Hot outlets, switch plates, or panels
  • Sparking appliances or fixtures
  • Buzzing electrical sources

Is It Safe to Reset a Circuit Breaker?

Yes. When a circuit breaker trips, turn everything off on that circuit, make sure your hands are dry, and locate the electrical panel and tripped breaker. It will be in the center position and feel soft and springy. Move it to the “Off” position and, after a few seconds, to the “On” position and turn connected appliances and lights back on.

Why Is Aluminum Wiring Hazardous?

Having aluminum wiring isn’t illegal and is not a reason to panic. However, aluminum is prone to overheating and breakage. It expands more than copper when exposed to strong currents, which can loosen connections. Therefore, aluminum wiring is a significant fire hazard.
