Service Upgrades

A service upgrade is an amazing way to make the most of your power source by powering what you need, yet nothing more. We leave a cushion for new appliances and code updates but don’t push you to pay more than you need for your electrical system.

60 – 100 Amps

The 60 to 100 amp systems are usually outdated. They work for very specific cases, but most of the time, anything under 100 amps does not suit the local codes and thus must be upgraded.

200 Amp

The 200 amp systems are ideal for most residential uses. When we service your home, there’s a good chance we’ll offer you something in this range because it works for almost everyone in Center Valley, PA.

400 Amps

The 400 amp systems are special upgrade systems that work well for large appliances or HVAC systems that need to heat and cool large homes. They aren’t the standard but could work for you if 100 amp systems are too weak.

How We ProvideExceptional
Service To Center Valley

Humble Beginnings

Tom Shafnisky is our founder, who began Shafnisky Electric with nothing but a toolbox and a passion to serve Lehigh County. He worked with customers alone until his clientele grew too large, and he had to hire more electricians. Today, the team has grown, but our values remain the same.

Humans Remain Priority

Every human we work with deserves respect and kindness. Whether it’s our new employee or our oldest customer, everyone should receive empathy – whether they pay for it or not.

Master Electrician

Our leader, Tom, keeps his Master’s Electrician’s License up to date. This is the highest possible license an electrician can get, which helps him stay qualified to train apprentice and journeyman electricians.

Our Warranty

We offer a two-year warranty on almost all materials and labor we provide at Shafnisky Electric. For the first two years, we are available for any issues you may have and are even implementing a new system of a lifetime warranty on our workmanship.

Thank You For Saving The Day

I would recommend Shafnisky Electric to anyone that needs electrical work. They were on time, had great communication, and had more-than-fair rates. We will be using them again in the spring for panel upgrades and outlet work. Thank you for saving the day. A hot shower is now in my future!!

We Appreciated Their Service

I run a very busy District Court in Bethlehem. These guys came in and replaced all the ceiling light fixtures over a week’s period. They were polite, professional, and efficient and were able to do the job without any major disruptions to our work. I was so impressed and happy that I took the time to call the owner to tell him how much we appreciated their service.

5 Questions Lehigh County Homeowners
Ask About Shafnisky Electric

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.
