Looking to rewire a single room or your entire house? Shafnisky Electric can help!
Home renovations, especially in kitchens or laundry rooms, typically means moving appliances to improve convenience. Contact Shafnisky Electric to help determine your electrical needs and plan your project.
Older homes are beautiful, but typically need to be rewired to bring them up to code. Some insurance companies require that all knob & tube wiring be removed while others only require that it is removed from all accessible areas, like attics and basements. At Shafnisky Electric, we specialize in replacing knob & tube wiring.
Electrical Service Upgrade
60-amp electrical service used to be the standard but now most local code requires a 100-amp electrical service and most homes need 100-amps or 200-amps to power all of today’s electrical needs.
Why upgrade your electrical service?
Upgrading your service can bring your home up to current electrical code and increase the value of your home when it is time to sell. Out-of-date panels can cause damage to electrical equipment in your home, dimming lights throughout your house, tripping breakers and even starting fires. Upgrading to increase your electrical service gives you room for all of your current electrical needs as well as providing for any future needs you may have. The price difference between a 100-amp and a 200-amp electrical service upgrade is minimal, as the labor costs are the same, so it may be more cost-effective to upgrade to 200-amp.
During your free consultation, we can discuss your electrical service needs and you can choose the best option for your situation. Contact Shafnisky Electric to schedule your free consultation today.
Inspection & Code Violation Repairs
Whether you’re getting ready to sell your home or simply completing a routine inspection of your business, Shafnisky Electric can assist you with your code violation repairs.
Code violations have the potential to be serious and highly hazardous. In many cases, a homeowner has either attempted to do the work themselves or hired an unlicensed electrician in an effort to save money. Since National Electrical Codes are updated every 4 years, they likely don’t even know they have violated the code.
The most common code violation repairs include:
- Converting fuses to breakers
- Non-grounded receptacles
- GFCI protection
- AFI protection
- Inappropriate outdoor receptacles
- Wires too close to framing
- Inadequate space around recessed lights
