Before you invite an electrician or an electrical contractor to work on your home, make sure you ask the following questions:
- Are you a licensed electrician?
- Are you bonded?
- Are you a member of NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association)?
- Are you an employee of a company or are you a subcontractor?
- How many years have you been doing electrical work?
- Have you performed this specific type of project before?
Electrical Panel Upgrades
Every home has different electrical needs and requirements. If you are planning on adding on to your home or if your home is struggling to keep up with your electrical demand, contact us to learn how we can help. Make sure you are working with an electrical contractor that can make sure that all electrical circuits perform properly after installation.
Electrical Panel Upgrade Consultation
Before we begin working on your home, we will first evaluate the demand for power throughout your home. We will also ask you about any future plans you have for adding a higher demand for electricity. This will help us determine the necessary electrical panel size.
