Frequently Asked Questions From Home & Business Owners In The Lehigh Valley & North Jersey


Can You Coordinate With My Gas Or Fuel Company When Installing My New Generator?

We always recommend a company we trust to complete the gas or fuel section of a generator installation, but we leave the final decision up to the customer. If you choose to work with an outside company, you would be responsible for scheduling gas and fuel services.

Can You Upgrade My Knob & Tube Wiring?

Absolutely! Although the process can be quite tedious and time-consuming, we are experts at upgrading Lehigh Valley homes and businesses from knob and tube wiring to safer, more efficient electrical systems.

Do I Need To Upgrade My Electrical Service To Have An EV Charger Installed?

With the invention of smart panels and load-shedding panels, upgrading your entire electrical system may not always be necessary. We have the expertise to prioritize your electrical service using smart home technology to assign priority levels, such as priority 3 for water heaters, priority 2 for cooking appliances, and priority 1 for electric vehicle chargers. This ensures that your car is ready for work tomorrow without overwhelming your electrical system.

Do You Offer Any Other Services Other Than Electrical Such As Plumbing Or HVAC?

No, we do not. As a company focused on providing our customers with top-tier services, we choose to focus solely on electrical solutions for the Lehigh Valley and Northern New Jersey. Be sure to check back later; we are always expanding the scope of our skill set.

Do You Provide Your Own Trenches Or Excavation Equipment?

We always use in-house equipment when we take on electrical projects that require trenching or excavation services. If we need an extra set of hands or vehicle, we have a secondary trusted crew of professionals from the Lehigh Valley area on standby, ready to give assistance.

How Do I Know If I Need After-Hour Emergency Electrical Service?

Not sure? Give us a call! We will troubleshoot over the phone for free to save you money and time, and we can even suggest options before our workers come in the morning during normal working hours. Our emergency services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How High In The Air Can You Install, Replace, Or Rewire Signs & Lighting In North Jersey & PA?

When it comes to installing billboards, signs, and lighting designs high in the air, there’s no limit to how high we will work. We have worked over 120 feet in the past but have the equipment to go further.

I Have Knob & Tube Wiring, Do I Need To Rewire My Entire Lehigh Valley Home?

While it may not be mandatory in the state of Pennsylvania to upgrade from knob and tube wiring. It is essential to comply with local municipality codes when it comes to electrical requirements. Rather than requiring your entire home to be updated, bringing it up to code is often sufficient.

What Size Generator Should I Have Installed?

Our electrical experts determine the perfect size generator for your home or business based on many individual factors. These factors include the size of the space needing energy, which appliances or systems will run off the generator, local permitting regulations and code requirements, and so on.

When Should I Get An Electric Service Quote To Inspect My Lehigh Valley Home Or Business?
