Allstar Electrical Services was founded by Gary Stone in 2000 to fill an unmet demand: reputable electrical construction done right, the way it should be done. Stone had logged decades in the industry, managing multi-million dollar projects and making house calls for simple switch repairs.

Stone wanted to build an environment of peerless professionalism in a trade he’d grown up in—the electrical contracting business. Moreover, he wanted to build a team of exceptional service-oriented electricians who cared that the client was more than satisfied with the job done.

Stone determined that Allstar Electrical Services would never be the biggest shop in town, but it would be the most reputable, reliable and responsive.

He built a trusted team of highly trained electricians, among them tenured master electricians, who brought renewed respect for a job well done to each project at hand.

When we win your business, we want to keep your business for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

A GFI, or GFCI – Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter works by comparing the input current on the hot side to the output current on the neutral side. If the slightest difference in current even a few milliamps exists,  the device very quickly cuts off the power supply to the leaking device. This protects from electric shocks from faults in the electrical devices used in the home.

GFCI protection should be provided anywhere there is a receptacle installed in an area near moisture. Moisture greatly increases the danger of accidental shock. The National Electric Code specifies many such areas in residential dwelling units, such as, but not limited to: Bathrooms; Garages and accessory buildings; All exterior receptacles; Crawl spaces; Unfinished basements; Kitchens; Laundry, Utility, Wet Bar Sink Areas; and Boathouses. Local building authorities may have additional requirements.

The list of areas requiring GFCI protection has increased with every code revision. Call on the pros for Allstar.

Appliances such as a washer, dryer, oven, and furnace, require the extra voltage. 220V outlets are required. 220V is 2 wires that combined produce twice the amount of voltage to the outlet.

A 110V outlet has only one hot terminal, and the hot wire is always black.

Another key difference between 110 and 220 circuits is the wire size. Because 220-volt circuits carry higher current, they require 10 gauge or larger wire, whereas the normal maximum wire size in a 110-volt circuit is 12 gauge.

220V also presents safety concerns. A 220V outlet will feel like twice the shock and twice the pain of a 110. Call in the pros from Allstar.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, aluminum wire manufactured before 1972 are 55 x more likely to have one or more connections reach Fire Hazard Conditions than is a home wired with copper.

Who hasn’t heard that aluminum wiring has been recalled and that it is no longer approved or permitted in homes? Neither of these is true. Aluminum wiring was introduced to homes in North America in the mid-1960s. The price of copper was very high, and aluminum was a cost-effective alternative. Aluminum wiring is permitted with the appropriate installation methods and materials.

Since the biggest issue with aluminum wiring is at connections, special connectors were designed for aluminum wiring. Don’t just go to the hardware store and pick up a standard outlet. It must be marked specifically that it is safe for aluminum. Below is a list safe for aluminum wiring:

  • Small receptacles marked CO/ALR or AL-CU
  • Large receptacles (> 20 amps) marked AL-CU or CU-AL
  • Switches marked CO/ALR
  • Wire nuts marked AL-CU or CU-AL
  • Electrical panels and breakers marked AL-CU or CU-AL.
