Electricity is one of the most important parts of any modern home. It’s difficult to even think of a task or activity you take part in on a regular basis that doesn’t require electricity in one way or another. And because electricity is so integral to your family’s life at home, it can be easy to take it for granted, and you might not even notice it’s there—of course, on the other hand, when you have a problem with your electrical system, it can become difficult to notice anything else.

Hernando County Electrical Repairs
It’s extremely important to remember that any repairs on your electrical system need to be handled by a licensed and professionally trained electrician. Attempting to complete any electrical repairs on your own is extremely dangerous, and you run the very strong risk of injuring yourself or someone during the process. Even if you do make it through the repairs without injury, there’s still a very strong chance that you’ve made any number of tiny mistakes that can end up being disastrous.
In fact, the National Fire Protection Agency lists faulty electrical wiring as the number one cause of house fires in the United States.
Our professional electricians will always arrive on the job as quickly as possible after you request service. We’ll also complete the work as quickly as we can, but we’ll never let speed get in the way of a quality job.
Hernando County Panel Upgrades
Making sure that your electrical panel is able to support the amount of electricity that you use in your home is extremely important. If your panel is outdated, it could cause frequent power outages, or even result in a house fire. To make sure that your Hernando County home is properly protected, you may need to have an inspection of your panel.
Because so many more devices and appliances are used in today’s home than were in the past, panel can quickly become outdated. Often, they don’t need to be thoroughly replaced but can simply be upgraded. Our professional electricians can help you decide on the best course of action to take.
About Hernando County
Savior Home Services is proud to serve the entire Hernando County area. Around 1840, Fort DeSoto was established in present-day Hernando County in the northeast edge of present-day Brooksville to protect settlers in the area from Native Americans. Fort DeSoto became a small community center, trading post, and way station on the route to Tampa. When settlement by the fort began around 1845, it was alternatively known as Pierceville.
Then encompassing a significantly larger area of west central Florida than it does today, Hernando County was officially established on February 27, 1843, two years prior to Florida’s admission into the Union. It was created from portions of Alachua, Hillsborough and Orange Counties and included all of present-day Citrus and Pasco Counties. Named for Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, whose name has also been honored in DeSoto County, Hernando County was briefly renamed Benton County in 1844 for Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton, a strong supporter of territorial expansion who aided in the county’s creation. However, Benton fell out of favor with the county’s residents later in the decade due to his decision to support the Missouri Compromise and the overall reversal of his stance on slavery, and the county’s name reverted in 1850.
In December 1854, the legislature designated the small port town of Bayport the county seat. Residents living in the eastern section of the county instead desired a more central place for the county government, and by 1855, voters had selected an inland site within five miles (8 km) of the center of the county at the town of Melendez. In 1856, the citizens of Hernando County chose to rename the town, their new County Seat, Brooksville in honor of South Carolina Representative Preston Brooks, who in the same year beat fierce abolitionist Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner with a cane in the Senate chambers, winning the Congressman great renown in the South.
In 1855, town founder Joseph Hale donated land for a county courthouse in the center of present-day Brooksville. Soon thereafter, the structure was completed.
During the Civil War, Hernando County primarily contributed foodstuffs, cotton, and lumber to the Confederacy. Although Union ships imposed a blockade on the port of Bayport, runners enjoyed a great deal of success—enough to lead the Union in June 1864 to order some 150–250 troops to destroy Confederate stockpiles in the county. In early July, the expedition marched northward from Anclote River to Brooksville, meeting some resistance from assembled Confederate troops hastily organized to protect the city. The Federal troops won this engagement (known locally as the Brooksville Raid and marched to Bayport, where they and an auxiliary force landing from gunboats sacked Rebel operations. The skirmish between Union raiders and local Confederates is reenacted annually in the county.
The county courthousewas destroyed by a fire on September 29, 1877. On June 2, 1887, the Florida State Legislature divided Hernando County into three independent counties: Pasco County to the south, Citrus County to the north, and Hernando County in the middle. Since then, Hernando County’s borders have remained unchanged.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 589 square miles (1,530 km2), of which 473 square miles (1,230 km2) is land and 116 square miles (300 km2) (19.8%) is water. According to the World Atlas USA, Hernando County is the geographic center of Florida. Elevation in the county ranges from mean sea level along the Gulf coast to its highest natural point of 269 feet at Chinsegut Hill.
