PANEL AND SERVICE CHANGES
Is it time to change that panel? It could be outdated, overloaded and poorly installed. This can drive up new installation costs or halt them altogether. You need a panel that has the space and capacity to grow with your plans. A properly installed panel will give you that flexibility and safe protection of the electrical circuits throughout your home. A service change may be required to supply you with the extra energy you now need.
ARC FAULT PROTECTION
Arc fault protection is the most current technology for protecting your home. When electrical connections are poorly made or have deteriorated over time, they can start to arc. Arcing is the electricity jumping across a poor connection or break in a wire. This creates heat at those degraded locations and is the number one leading cause of electrical house fires. When an arc fault breaker senses arcing, it immediately shuts down the circuit keeping your home safe.
KNOB AND TUBE WIRING UPGRADE
Knob and tube wiring was installed in homes up until the late 1950’s. It can be identified easily as the wiring passes around ceramic knobs and through ceramic tubes (see photo). It was installed in a time where electrical requirements were one quarter of what they are now, leaving this wiring abused and overloaded for many years. Overloaded wiring becomes brittle and loses its insulating protective value and could leave bare wiring hidden in the walls and ceilings. Many insurance companies are now refusing to insure homes that have knob and tube wiring. We can upgrade your home to current wiring methods giving you more capacity and peace of mind.
ALUMINIUM WIRING UPGRADE
If you have a home built in the late 60’s into the 70’s then most likely your house contains aluminium wiring. This wiring method may present certain safety concerns. While its original installation is considered safe, it will likely have had many modifications or additions over the years. Aluminium is a soft metal which expands and contracts easily. This can loosen electrical connections causing hot spots, which can lead to poor functionality and possible fire hazard. It is highly recommended this wiring be upgraded to copper wiring which is still in use today.
