Can anyone recommend an electrician for small, residential work? Basically need someone to check our wiring as we have periodic outages on one circuit.

I can recommend Tim Clark of Taz Electric. He and his son have done initial work and remodeling on our house and have always done good work and on schedule. 575-538-1768

before you spend a bundle on an electrician, you could on your own discover how many loads are on this one circuit and add them up. if they approach 100% of the size of the circuit breaker, then remove the largest load, say a toaster, and put it on another circuit and see if the tripping continues. if it does replace the circuit breaker on the troublesome circuit. if the tripping ceases, then you've fixed it yourself. often just two heavy loads will be on the same circuit, and most times this will be fine but when say the refrigerator comes on while you're toasting, a trip will happen. if you didn't have any problem and nothing different was happening on a particular circuit, the circuit breaker will be at fault: as it ages its tripping point will decrease, certainly preferable to the other alternative of no longer tripping upon overload.

Thanks for all the input on this. Unfortunately, it's not a circuit breaker problem, but only happens occasionally. Will give Tim a call at some point.
