Who do you know that got spooked by this recent line of storms and the related power outages?

The reality is that with the continued deterioration or our aging power grids, line worker cut backs and under staffed utility providers, and the rapid increase in dramatic weather events these situations are going to become more common place.

  1. AE, in joint partnership with Mark Baitinger and Sound Lab, can now offer locally based certified installation of induction hearing loop systems.  For more information on looping systems and ADA compliance you can go to www.hearingloop.org
  2. AE has been moving strongly into the field of full Audio / Video / IT integration.  With our partners at Sound Lab we recently completed a 200K project at Westminster Village.  This project included a full Creston digital media sever solution, on wall interactive touch screens, (3) hearing loops, and a wide range of other audio / video tech
  3. AE is about to head into our 10th year of business and remains one of the highest rated contractors in the greater Tippecanoe County area
  4. AE is a factory authorized vendor rep for Kohler Power systems, offering both residential and full line commercial backup generator systems with installation and 24 hour emergency support
  5. AE bills from a standardized rate sheet, provides a lifetime warranty on our workmanship, and never mark up our material. You can find this information in writing and download PDF formats on our website www.artisanelectric.net
  6. AE recently moved to our new shop on North 9th Street – we now have access to a forklift and loading dock as well room to keep all of our fleet vehicles inside. This location provides us a much better central point for service to the both cities and allowed the room needed for our recycling program
  7. AE is a full recycling partner!  In the beginning of 2012 we committed to limiting our land fill waste.  Now, approaching the start of 2014 we have made it to the point of going “dumpster free” and are now 95% recycling based, including eWaste, plastic, metals, cardboard, and paper

We just completed this project last week. Retro fit of a new 800 amp service on a 12 unit building. The old service was not installed correctly and failed due to water and rust.

Electrical Tip of the Day – Fall outdoor light fixture maintenance

October 13th, 2010 No comments

Its that time of year again and (gasp) bad weather will be upon us soon.  This weeks tip is a simple one… it will save you a bundle to deal with outdoor light fixture repairs before the snow flies and things freeze… in some case, like in ground landscape lighting, if a problem occurs after it has hard frozen for the winter we have little choice but to put the repair work off until spring thaw

In other areas, like commercial parking lot lights, wall packs, those pesky motion detector sensor lights – getting fresh lamps in and checking out the systems before winter is money well spent.  Things break when it gets cold, and planning for bucket truck / large ladder use during those bad winter months will always cost more then doing the same work during favorable weather.

And of course – PLANNED maintenance is always more cost effective then emergency or unplanned repair work!
