Electrical Service & Electrical Panel
We have helped many people upgrade their electrical service and electric panel. Although many homeowners and business owners don’t put too much thought into their electric service or electrical panel we know that a time will come when that service or panel needs attention or replacement and you want to make sure you choose a professional that is thorough, careful and understands your needs more than their own goals.
Sure you can get most electricians to upgrade a service or change a panel, so why not get the cheapest? It's hard to get the best service and quality with the cheapest price, true professionals understand what they bring to the table, quality, knowledge or service, everything has a price, and it always cost more to do it right, to do it better. Of course you are free to choose any electrician and for any reason, we believe that when it comes to detail, quality and customer service we can’t be beat.
Each electrician that upgrades a service or changes a panel needs an electrical permit though right? So, one would assume that as long as it passes inspection everything is the same, right? Wrong, projects pass inspection all the time that shouldn’t have, there is only so much time the inspectors have, and the time they spend reviewing the work leaves a lot of opportunity for cut corners. The city takes no responsibility for the permitted work if something were to go wrong, it falls on the licensed, and hopefully insured company or individual. Some inspectors don’t even care to look inside a panel, some towns don’t allow it for liability reasons. Choose an electrician you can trust, and who you think will be there if something goes wrong, and who you see as providing the best value and safety for your home or business.
Overhead Electrical Service
We replaced a 100 amp electrical service due to problems in the electrical meter socket enclosure and the age of the wiring. We kept the service at 100A rather than upgrade to a 200A because of the standby generator system that was already installed and based on our service calculations. We can upgrade or replace your overhead electrical service and you can feel confident we will do it right and stand behind the workmanship.
Underground Electrical Service
Above is a picture of an underground electrical service. We had to replace it due to a break in the underground wiring. The underground service in most cases is owned by the property owner and in this case, it was covered by the homeowner's insurance. When you need an electrician for an underground electrical service upgrade or replacement you can feel good knowing we handle all aspects of the project.
Your home's electrical system is complex and provides essential living needs for you. You either have an overhead electrical service or an underground service. We are here to ensure that no matter what type of electrical service you have it is safe, efficient and gets the care it needs.
New 200 Amp Electrical Panel
This electrical panel was part of a new home we wired in West Newbury, MA. We built the wood isolation board and mounted the 200 amp panel which was powered with copper service conductors. We spared no expense as the builder was the owner and wanted the best.
100A Electrical Panel Replacement
Above is a 100 amp electrical panel we installed for our clients. The generator system was already existing but we had to rework part of the system. We installed a mounting board for the electrical equipment to give a nice clean look and to provide space for future equipment. This panel includes whole house surge protection which is now required by code.
