Service Upgrades

Shafnisky Electric offers several options for service upgrades to fit your residence or commercial building. Older buildings – especially those built before 1960 – were installed with 60-amp electrical systems, which are simply insufficient to handle modern life’s electrical needs.

Most local codes dictate 100-amp service as the minimum, with most modern homes requiring 100 – 200 amps to run comfortably.

100-amp service is standard for most homes and can comfortably run homes under 3,000 sq. ft. without central AC or electric heating. If your home uses many large appliances, such as electric washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, and more, then you’ll need at least 200 amps to operate your electric systems smoothly.

Shafnisky Electric offers residential service upgrades up to 600 amps.

No matter your home or business’s electrical needs, Shafnisky Electric has you covered.

If you’re unsure what electrical service upgrade is best for you, don’t worry. Our experts will help you find the best solution for your home or business.

Brad C.

I Highly Recommend Shafnisky Electric

I have experienced many unreliable contractors out there, so I typically do all of my own home repairs. Upgrading my entire electric service exceeded my capabilities and I reluctantly sought out help. From my first phone call to Shafnisky Electric until the work was completed it was the smoothest home contractor experience I ever had. I highly recommend Shafnisky Electric!

An Outstanding Job

We want to take a minute to tell you about the technicians who installed cameras on our home. They did an outstanding job. These guys were outside in the heat and up in the storage area above my garage all day, pulling wire and mounting the cameras. They certainly earned their money and then some. We will certainly keep Shafnisky Electric in mind for our next job.

FAQs: 5 Common Questions Macungie, PA, Homeowners
Have About Our Service Upgrades

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?

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.
