Service Upgrades

A service upgrade may be a choice for you to make the most of your power source or be a mandatory move due to a code violation. Codes are updated regularly, sometimes prohibiting the use of anything under a certain amperage. That’s why working with a certified electrician is important when considering upgrades.

60-100 Amp

Systems that are 60 to 100 amps are usually outdated and don’t cost much less than the upgraded systems. But in certain cases, they’re just what you need.

200 Amp

The 200 amp systems are the general residential standard. When we upgrade your home, chances are, we’ll offer something in this range as the ideal amperage.

600 Amp

The 600 amp systems are usually reserved for large homes or commercial service upgrades. Call us to discuss which option is right for you.

Automatic Standby Generators

Automatic standby generators are specialized generators with a great range of sizes and fuel options. These machines will automatically test themselves every week and send you the results, so you always know they are working properly.


Commercial generators are lifesavers, or rather, money-savers. They work in a pinch during an emergency when you have customers to serve and work to do that relies on electrical power.


We have both manual and automatic generators for homeowners in Center Valley, PA. The automatic standby generator is a favorite of ours because it turns on when your power goes out. They can run up to 100kw for a large residential service making them powerhouses that will keep your home running long after a blackout.

5 Questions Lehigh County Homeowners
Ask About Shafnisky Electric

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?

If you ever have doubts about your electrical system's safety or integrity, call us! Our quotes are quick and free, and will get to the bottom of your electrical problems with long-term solutions. It never hurts to be informed and prepared!
