Main Electrical Panel

What is a Main Electrical panel?

  • The main electrical panel is the hub for all the electric circuits in your home.  If you are experiencing trouble with  your main panel or circuits within the panel, we will provide troubleshooting to determinethe cause and provide you with a plan to correct the problem.

 

Sub Panel

  • The sub panel is an additional panel separate from the main panel that can be used to add circuits in the event you run out of room in the main electrical panel.  We can evaluate your needs and service and install sub panels for your power needs.

Smoke Detectors

  • Having your smoke detectors placed strategically throughout your home can insure that the presence of smoke will be discovered in case of fire.  Our professionals can install and make any recommendations for additional detectors providing you with peace of mind.

Ceiling Fans

  • Ceiling fans play a crucial role in the home environment.  Ceiling fans help circulate air and provide cooler air flow, allowing you to raise the thermostat setting.  We will hang your ceiling fan on your existing  fan box or install new wiring, switches and a fan rated brace box for any area of your home.

Surge Protectors

  • A surge protector is an appliance that is designed to protect electronic devices from voltage spikes.  We will determine your needs andprovide recommendations to install whole house protection for those valuable electronic items

Lighting

  • Having the right lighting can make a huge difference in both your home and office settings.  Lighting provides illumination and encompasses a wide variety of uses, both inside and outside your home and office.  We will work with you on providing the most cost effective lighting solutions for your home or office.

Fuse and Circuit Breaker Boxes

  • Enclose fuses and circuit breakers in a panel box. Interior wiring should never be visible. Always keep the panel door closed and latched.
  • Keep the area around the electrical panel free of combustible materials.
  • If you notice burn marks, hear buzzing or cracking or smell burning plastic around or inside the electrical panel, have a qualified electrician check the panel immediately.
  • Keep on hand spare fuses of the proper size for the circuit they protect. Over fusing presents a severe fire hazard as circuits can overheat when they carry more current than that for which they were designed.
  • When screw-type fuses require replacement, S-type fuses should be used.
  • If fuses blow or circuit breakers trip frequently, it may be an indication that the circuits are overloaded. Have a qualified electrician inspect the circuit and make the appropriate repairs.
