When to Call for Help With Your Electrical System
Call us if your lights flicker when using a major electrical appliance or your electric panel overheats. We help customers who must constantly reset breakers or replace blown fuses. Contact us if your home has a Federal Pacific, GTE/Sylvania, I-T-E Pushmatic, or Zinsco electrical panel. Building officials recalled these panels for safety reasons, so you need an upgrade immediately.
Call us when you add to the home, and we’ll determine if an update is needed. The same holds when you must use extension cords throughout the house because there aren’t enough outlets. We can do an electrical outlet upgrade to solve this problem. Let us know if you have two-pronged outlets, and we will do an electrical outlet upgrade with GFCI outlets to prevent your loved ones from being shocked.
Upgrading Your Electric Service
You need an experienced electrician to handle the upgrade. The electrical update will typically include upgrading the service to 200 amps to handle modern electrical demand. However, in some cases, we need to update electrical systems to 400 amps or more.
Many homes today have two-prong outlets. These outlets cannot meet the demands of modern devices and need to be upgraded. Never assume this task is easy, as any mistake could lead to problems.
In addition, your home needs GFCI outlets where water is present. A GFCI outlet detects imbalances in the electricity and halts power to the outlet. This feature ensures you aren’t shocked, burned, or electrocuted.
During the 1960s and 1970s, builders used aluminum wiring for new electrical systems. While that was standard at the time, aluminum wiring fails over time. It puts your home at greater risk of an electrical fire. Our team will complete an electrical service upgrade to reduce the risk of fire in your home.
Does Your Home Need an Electrical Upgrade?
Homes built in the 1970s or earlier probably need an electrical upgrade. However, the same is true of many homes built in the 1980s and 1990s. For example, you may need to call for an electrical switch update or outlet update.
These receptacles wear out with frequent use. Our electrician will inspect the electrical system and determine where an outlet or electrical switch update will be of benefit. If an outlet or switch does not need replacement, we tighten splices. Doing so increases the safety and reliability of the electrical system.
As mentioned previously, your home may need an electrical panel upgrade. New panels come with features not seen in their older peers. In addition, they have twice the circuit capacity of panels installed in the 1980s or 1990s.
New electrical systems feature dedicated 20-amp bathroom circuits. Older homes, in contrast, have 15-amp circuits shared with other areas of the home. The older circuit breakers frequently trip. Our team can complete an electrical service upgrade to solve this problem.
Many homes built half a century ago have 8-foot ceilings with no lights. Call us to have recessed lighting installed. These lighting fixtures maintain the line of sight along the ceilings while leaving the room with an open, spacious feel.
For many homeowners, it is time to upgrade the garage utility circuit. In many homes, this circuit controls an auxiliary refrigerator, bathrooms in the home, and more. We will complete an electrical service upgrade and provide the auxiliary refrigerator with a dedicated service. This service ensures the refrigerator receives ample power while allowing you to use power tools and other items in the garage freely.
