Easy Electrical Troubleshooting | El Paso Home Builders

Sometimes electrical problems in our homes can be taken care of quickly with a little troubleshooting. Follow these tips to save yourself some money and frustration in your new home.

An Outlet Isn't Working
Sometimes outlets are controlled by a wall switch. Make sure the switch isn’t in the OFF position. If the wall switch is in the ON position, check the circuit breaker to see if it has been tripped. If it has been tripped, reset it.

A Ceiling Light or Lamp Won’t Turn On
Check the lightbulb by screwing it into another light source/lamp. If the bulb is good, check the circuit breaker. Also, check for wall switches in the OFF position.

Garbage Disposals Won’t Operate
Disposals have reset buttons, so be sure to locate that first. If the disposal and dishwasher are designed to plug into an outlet, as opposed to being directly wired, make sure that the disposal and dishwasher are plugged into the right outlets. Finally, check the circuit breaker.

Electric Water Heater Won’t Function
Check your circuit breaker to see if it has been tripped. If it hasn't, turn the power off, and then push the reset button located under the water heater access cover.

Oven Isn't Heating
Refer to the owner’s manual first and make sure you’re operating the time controls properly. Then check the circuit breaker.

If you are still experiencing electrical problems after doing some quick troubleshooting, contact an electrician. Your new home should always accommodate you, but it's always a good idea to know all about your home and the steps to take to take care of it.

Custom Lighting Fixtures | El Paso Home Builders

Lighting can help set the atmosphere of a room in new homes. And the type of fixture you choose can help give homes a custom touch that defines your style and taste. Lighting fixtures do not always need to be placed in their usual settings. For example, add some elegance to your bathroom with a sparkling chandelier. And if you prefer chandeliers in their more traditional home settings, like a dining room, choosing one that defines your style can add a focal point in the room.

Some other custom light features that can be added to new homes are colored LED lights. Installed under your cabinets, they can add a unique look to your kitchen. And of course, lighting inside the cabinets is a practical touch, yet custom touch. 

And a simple way to easily adjust the ambience of a room is with a dimmer. Dimmers are inexpensive and can be installed in the entire home or in each individual room.

There are several new home builders in El Paso, but if you are looking for the top quality builder who can provide you with new and custom homes, outstanding workmanship, and excellent customer service, look no further than Pointe Homes. We can help build your dream home!

Ceiling Fans | El Paso Home Builders

Summer is winding down, but in El Paso, it's still warm out there! Stay cool in your new home during these last days of summer with unique custom ceiling fans. A ceiling fan can make the nights more comfortable and at the same time, create a focal point in the bedroom. 

The rotation and position of your fan new homes is also very important. According to Home Tips, "During the summer, using a ceiling fan in conjunction with an air conditioner will allow you to set the thermostat higher without a noticeable difference in comfort...By raising the thermostat, you can save up to 30% on your air-conditioning bills...in the winter, a fan can re-circulate warm air that naturally rises in a room and is trapped at the ceiling. All you do is turn it on in the reverse direction."

All new homes are built differently. Some have high ceilings, some have lower ceilings. If your ceiling fan blades are too close to the ceiling, they will move less air. "Be sure the blade tips are at least 24 inches from walls or sloping ceilings...For ceilings taller than 8 feet, hang the fan from a drop rod so that it’s down where it can be more effective."

Dining Room | El Paso Home Builders

New homes can be built with all kinds of innovating ideas for the kitchen and your dining experience. For example, if you are looking for a less traditional dining experience in your new home, gather around the kitchen island. But that doesn't mean the dining room is dead! Take time out during your busy day to sit down at the dining room table and enjoy a wonderful meal in your new home. 

Houzz takes a look at several dining room experiences in new and custom homes. For a more traditional styled room, designers used a "neutral color scheme that would allow for the use of any color for flowers, place settings etc."

If you are more the contemporary type that loves splashes of bright colors in their new home, try emphasizing one piece, like the table. Houzz looked at a designer who did just that. "The approach to start with the table and play off of that piece worked because to effectively highlight an item in the space, you have to play up its strengths and let it shine....'Less is more' is always a great motto to stick by as well. Don’t clutter up your space with knickknacks if it’s the furniture you are really proud of. Let the table or the cabinet be the star of the show, and accent minimally but purposefully."

Pointe Homes is one of the top home builders in El Paso, and we will strive to build the house of your dreams. We can build custom homes from your great ideas, so start sharing them with us! Once your dream home is built, start living it!

In the bathroom, "you need a variety of sources that provide illumination in three layers: ambient, task, and accent" ensure adequate lighting. According to Better Homes and Gardens, "lighting serves many purposes in a bathroom. It eases the transition from asleep to awake, guides you in your daily grooming routines, and helps you unwind after a long day."

Carlos Villalobos & Pointe Homes - Home Builder in El Paso

A couple of months ago, Pointe Homes owner and home builder, Carlos Villalobos, was featured in The City Magazine, and they had some great things to say about him and his team. Carlos began building homes in El Paso about 10 years ago and is completely self-taught. As The City wrote, "that in itself is incredible, but it's the story behind it that make it truly one-of-a-kind." 

After earning an Accounting and Finance degree and later a Masters of Business Administration, Carlos built his first home as opposed to buying one, to customize it to his needs. After admiring the house for a long time, a woman made him an offer on the house. Since then, Carlos has not stopped building homes. 

His work has ranged from smaller homes to large-scale custom homes and even to a contemporary apartment complex in the works. "Pointe Homes is currently building in over 15 communities on the East, West, Northeast, Upper Valley, and Mission Valley." 

Pointe Homes is constantly striving to becoming the #1 builder in their market and always "driven to build 'nicer, better homes.'" Carlos and his team excellent customer service and will always see you through the entire building process, before and after your house is built.
