Electrical Service Upgrades

Are you tired of dealing with frequent electrical issues and limited power capacity in your home? It might be the perfect time to consider an electrical service upgrade! In the past, the typical 60-amp electrical service installed in homes was just fine, but nowadays, most local codes require a minimum of 100 amps.

But it’s not just about keeping up with local codes. Most homes actually need 100 or even 200 amps to keep up with modern electrical demands.

If your home is on the older side and still has knob and tube wiring, a full rewiring may be necessary to upgrade your electrical system. However, for newer homes, simpler upgrades can often do the trick, maximizing efficiency and providing the extra power you need for today’s technology-driven lifestyles.

While knob and tube wiring is outdated and can pose potential hazards, it’s not always mandatory to fully upgrade it to meet state law requirements. Talk with our experts to determine which electrical service would benefit your home the most.

Why Upgrade Your Lehigh Valley Home’s Electrical System?

Thinking about upgrading your electrical service to 200 amps? It’s a smart move! Not only will a 200-amp house potentially sell for more money, but you’ll also have more power to enjoy various activities like crafts in your woodshop, art in your new basement, and even cool amenities like a hot tub, sauna, or pool.

The upgrade process to a 100-amp and 200-amp system is similar, but when you opt for more amps, every single electrical component gets replaced to accommodate the higher capacity.

Imagine winning the lottery and finally having that dreamy hot tub! It makes total sense to opt for the bigger electrical system to handle the extra load. Keep in mind that a total gas home might not need more than 100 amps, but why limit yourself?

Whole-Home Rewiring

Opting for a whole-home rewiring provides benefits beyond meeting code requirements; it brings a host of benefits for your overall safety, convenience, and home value.

If you are considering home renovations, especially in high-traffic areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, receptacles and appliances will often need to be rearranged to enhance functionality. Now that’s a big task! With whole-home rewiring, we can seamlessly integrate these changes and create a more efficient living space.

The complexity of outdated electrical wiring, like knob and tube systems, poses significant risks. By replacing them with modern, up-to-code wiring, you eliminate potential hazards and enjoy greater peace of mind.

We specialize in whole-home rewiring projects no matter which system you are currently running. We’ll provide you with expert guidance, top-notch workmanship, and unmatched customer service every step of the way.

Code violations in electrical systems can be serious and pose significant hazards for everyone inside. Many Lehigh Valley homes might unknowingly have code violations, especially if the homeowner attempted DIY repairs or hired unlicensed electricians to cut costs.

With national electrical codes being updated every three years, staying up to date can be challenging for those without professional expertise.

The Most Common Code Violation Repairs Include:

  • Converting Fuses To Breakers
  • Fixing Non-Grounded Indoor Receptacles
  • GFCI Protection
  • AFI Protection
  • Non-Compliant Outdoor Receptacles
  • Open Wiring Splices

Electrical Service Upgrades, Rewiring, & Repair FAQ

Do You Have Experience With Electrical Repairs?

With over 35 years of experience, there's no repair challenge we haven't encountered and successfully addressed. Our extensive expertise means that we're well equipped to handle a wide range of electrical repairs no matter what.

How Fast Can You Have Someone Come To My Home For Electrical Repairs?

We've got you covered! We have a dedicated electrician on-call specifically for house calls and electrical repairs. When you call, we swiftly dispatch our service call expert to your home. Their main focus is speedy service — if you reach out early in the day, there's a good chance we can accommodate a same-day visit.

How Long Will A Whole Home Rewiring Take?

The duration of a whole home rewiring project can vary and is best determined after our experts assess your home's specific needs, such as its size, scope of work, and any necessary adjustments. The process can take up to 3 weeks, contingent on factors like the extent of adjustments needed, potential demolition, or new wall installations.

How Long Will I Be Without Power When Upgrading Or Rewiring My Home?

The duration of power outage during an upgrade or rewiring project varies. For tasks like replacing the panel, the downtime typically ranges from 4 to 6 hours. When upgrading the entire service, the outage might extend to about 8 hours. Rest assured, we can create temporary electrical connections to keep critical devices like oxygen machines operational during this period.

Is A Permit Required To Have Upgrades, Rewiring & Repairs Done On My Home?

Electrical repairs generally do not require permits, whereas upgrades and rewiring typically do. While permits are not mandatory, we highly recommend obtaining them. Having a legitimate authority inspect the work safeguards both you and your investment. A permit-backed inspection can offer added reassurance and invaluable protection against potential litigation.

What’s Involved In An Electrical Service Upgrade?

An electrical service upgrade encompasses a comprehensive process, which includes upgrading the entire service, from service entrance cable to panel, breakers, new grounding, and rewiring. The scope of the upgrade depends entirely on your specific needs.

Will You Gather The Required Permits For Me?

Absolutely, in most cases, we take care of the permit acquisition process for you. Since we often require multiple permits for various projects, we streamline the process and handle the necessary permits on your behalf, saving you time and ensuring a hassle-free experience.
