Service & Maintenance
JL Floyd Services, LLC provides service, maintenance and repair of electrical equipment to our residential and business customers' premises. These are small projects that can be accomplished in a single visit. Our service work is usually billed on cost-plus-fee basis or a flat fee schedule.
JL Floyd Services offers maintenance contracts for regular preventive maintenance of entire electrical systems or for specific items of electrical equipment. This specialized service often requires dedicated tools and diagnostic equipment and scheduled inspections or adjustments.
Commercial & Industrial Construction
JL Floyd Services, LLC provides commercial and industrial construction including large building projects such as schools, hospitals, office buildings, retail shops, warehouses and factories. For these building projects, we are responsible for the design of electrical systems and installation of electrical items, including:
- lighting fixtures - switches and receptacles for electrical appliances - panels and switchgear that connect a building to a power source - the wiring that makes all these electrical systems work together
Commercial and industrial construction includes new construction projects (from the ground up) and major renovations of existing structures. Most of this work is bid competitively, and JL Floyd Services is often a specialty subcontractor working for the general contractor employed by the building owner. However, we can have a direct contract with the owner or be hired as part of a design-build team.
Commercial and industrial construction work is project-oriented and may extend over months or years. Projects are generally awarded on a contract price, and progress billings are common, based on a percentage of the contract’s completion.
Electrical and electronic devices have dramatically improved our standard of living. Many homes now include integrated electrical and communication systems, lighting and HVAC controls, security and entertainment systems, and energy-efficient appliances.
Today’s residential construction projects, whether new or retrofit, require an electrical contractor who can design and install complicated systems, while keeping a family’s most valuable investment safe from electrical and fire hazards.
JL Floyd Services, LLC can help homeowners with electrical problems, upgrades, renovation and saving energy.
ProblemsMost home electrical wiring problems results from mistakes in installation or connection, inferior connections, or inferior materials. Wiring does not “go bad” in the walls, though adverse conditions like flooding can affect the wiring.
1. Lighting and fixtures: Flickering or blinking lights can indicate poor connections along the circuit.
2. Outlets don’t work: The receptacle device could be broken or the wiring connections to the device could be poor.
3. Circuit breakers and electrical panels: Frequently tripped circuit breakers or a circuit that can’t be reset is probably responding to a problem in the circuit.
UpgradesHome offices, automated environmental controls, and home theaters are upgrades that can dramatically improve a home’s value and comfort. Professional installation of new electrical equipment can protect the equipment and warranty, and add flexibility to systems.
Remodeling work frequently requires electrical work, whether it’s relocating electrical receptacles (outlets) or installing new lighting. Renovation is also an opportunity to check your home’s electrical panel and circuits to ensure that the system is functioning correctly and not overloaded.
In a long-term study of the electrical wiring in older homes, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) found that when the electrical system was correctly designed and installed and still functioning within the environment it was intended to power, it was generally still safe, despite the age of the wiring and electrical components. However, the study also found that older systems that had been modified improperly by homeowners or contractors were not safe and at a much greater risk for fires.
Saving energyHomeowners who want to “go green” have several options for saving energy in their homes, including energy-efficient lighting and lighting controls and EnergyStar appliances.
