Call the Residential Electrical Telluride professionals for great service
As a new Telluride homeowner, take stock of what you purchased. With your new residence, you have some of the most beautiful views in Colorado’s high country, nestled discretely near the Utah border in southwest Colorado. You’re in a unique community steeped in today’s tourism and dedicated to preserving a rich history that includes the first bank Butch Cassidy robbed in 1889. It also was the first city in the world to have electric streetlights and the first use of long-distance industrial-grade transmission lines to power its mining industry. In 1972, its first ski lift launched a long-standing industry on its own.
When older homes could be fire hazards, call on the experts
While Telluride might be a bit of a pioneer in using electricity, it is a blessing that could become a curse. Overburdened electrical systems, misused extension cords and worn-out wiring devices cause more fires in homes 40 years or older. According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments across the U.S. responded to almost 350,000 home fires per year. The NFPA’s research showed that most home fires and fire deaths resulted from five causes:
- Electrical distribution and lighting equipment
- and smoking materials.
Of those fires, almost 50,000 were a result of electrical failure or malfunction, or roughly 13 % of all U.S. home fires from 2015-19. The report states that many of those fires result from an “unintentional discharge of electrical current between conductors.” These and other failures, the report stated, could occur because of damaged conductors and connectors, frayed appliance cords, loose connections in junction boxes or electrical devices or faulty switches.
Don’t overload your system with the burden of today’s electronic devices

When they installed the new meter it didn’t go on right because the housing was so old. They recommended R&A. I called and they came right out to look. We were able to get it done really quick and professionally.🙂”
