We offer expert evaluation, repair, and upgrade services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Electrical Panel Upgrades and Additions
The things that consume the most energy in your home or business are:
Older, inefficient lighting
Wet appliances like washing machines and dishwashers
Cold appliances like fridges and freezers
Cooking appliances like the stove, oven, and microwave
Consumer electronics like laptops, TVs, and game consoles
Ideally, your current electrical system can manage all these items seamlessly. But you could need an upgrade if you detect any of the warning signs below.
Frequently Tripped Circuit Breakers
Tripped circuit breakers happen. But if your breakers are regularly thrown, it likely means you’re placing excessive demands on your circuit. Moving appliances to other circuits can help, but if your house or business has too few circuits, you’re a strong candidate for an electrical panel upgrade.
Circuit Breaker Buzzing
A faint buzzing sound simply means a current is flowing through your breaker. But if circuit breaker buzzing gets louder, sizzles, or is accompanied by sparks, contact Thomas Edison immediately. Loud noises could mean frayed or loose wiring and a potential electrical hazard.
Dimming Lights When Appliances Run
If your lights dim when you run the washing machine or microwave, there’s a good chance you’re overloading your circuit. There’s a limit to how much power your electrical circuit can draw, and regularly dimming lights are a good indicator that you’ve reached that limit.
Whole Home Rewiring
Often, older homes need complete rewiring to meet the demands of modern electricity use. The strain on older homes can cause hazardous living conditions, but a professional electrician can evaluate your current system to help ensure your safety.
Older homes were often built with aluminum wiring. These days, we know that aluminum wiring can increase your chances of a house fire. Call Thomas Edison today if your house was built between 1965 and 1973. We can inspect your home and wiring and help you move forward safely.
Knob-and-tube wiring predates aluminum wiring and can be found in many homes built between 1880 and the 1930s. Though knob-and-tube wiring isn’t inherently unsafe, age is a significant factor. Unfortunately, old electrical systems are more prone to causing fires than modern wiring.
