It can be hard to find quality electrical services in the smaller cities in Minnesota along the Mississippi River. That’s why Paxton Electric is proud to serve our customers in this stretch of Wabasha and Goodhue counties! We provide a number of services that keep the lights on in your home (literally!) and support your business, even during difficult circumstances, like power outages. We tailor our services to the types of homes local to the area. For example, an unusually large percentage of homes in Red Wing, Lake City, and Wabasha were built before 1939. That means many local residences require special attention, as the electrical systems could be outdated or require unique adjustments.
When you call us at (507) 710-1448, expect licensed, experienced electricians to arrive in a timely manner and diagnose your problem. We also help with new electrical installations, like lighting and generators. You deserve to have a reliable electrical company in your hometown, whether you’re in the northwest in Red Wing or in the southeast in Wabasha. Electricians like Paxton Electric don’t exist everywhere. We are highly rated on Google and retain transparent prices with no hidden fees.
Our expert electricians in Wabasha, Lake City, and Red Wing can install new lighting in your home or business. Whether you need indoor lighting, outdoor lighting, or lighting with a specific purpose, like security lighting, we can assist you to make sure your new installation is safely wired and looks fantastic.
Some of the most common lighting we install includes:
Severe winter storms leave us vulnerable to power outages in Lake City, Red Wing, and Wabasha. Ice cold temperatures can freeze wind turbines, which provide 30% of Minnesota’s energy resources. In cases where the ice cold temperatures are combined with unusually large amounts of snow, it may be difficult to travel to a place that does have power. So, having a generator at home can save you from winter days and nights without access to heat.
At Paxton Electric, we offer generator repair and installation services, so we’re here to assist whether you need help diagnosing why your generator won’t turn on, or you’d like guidance about which generator to choose in the first place.
Your electrical panel should be replaced every 25 to 40 years, depending on the condition of your electrical system. Since most homes are older than this in Lake City, Wabasha, and Red Wing, electricians recommend having someone look at your panel if you do not know the last time it was replaced.
An electrical panel upgrade also allows you to better adapt your electrical capacity to modern day technology. If you have an older system, you may find that your electrical panel only supports 60 or 100 amps. A modern panel has a capacity around 150 or 200 amps, especially for a large family or a household with numerous electronics.
Count on Paxton Electric to safely upgrade or repair your electrical panel. We’re here to make sure your home’s electrical system will last and to eliminate any risks posed by a faulty panel.
Surge protection keeps your electronics, appliances, and anything else you might plug into an outlet safe from power surges. A power surge most frequently occurs when lighting strikes. There are about 30 to 50 thunderstorms a year in the region of southeast Minnesota around Lake City, Wabasha, and Red Wing, and each one poses a risk to your electrical system. Power surges can destroy thousands of dollars worth of technology in a matter of seconds.
Luckily, Paxton Electric installs whole-home surge protection to keep every outlet in your home safe. This method of surge protection is far more effective than buying individual power strips for your outlets.
