Residential Electrical Services

In today’s DIY era, it can be tempting to try and save a few dollars by attempting electrical projects yourself or with the help of the local handyman. Unless you are simply plugging in a surge protector to valuable electronics, or swapping a light bulb, opting for a licensed, professional electrician is in your best interest.

In these modern times, we rely on a growing number of gadgets and appliances. The comforts of life have begun to be defined through new technologies as well. Thus, functionality and comfort depend on the use of electricity. An electrical panel is what controls this aspect and lets us use all the new technologies at home. When it is damaged, not only that it can compromise the appliances, but also people’s safety. Call us for an inspection.

Many years ago homes were not wired for AC units, car chargers, or appliances that are required in today’s homes. Today’s specifications of all electrical panels must be UL (Underwriter Laboratory) approved. If you’re not sure if your home’s meter panel is sufficient or would like to schedule a free estimate, please call us today to discuss your options.

Your home is powered from the electric company via the service entrance. Wires feed an electric meter and quite often a disconnect before entering your home’s electrical panel. This panel may be a fuse panel or a circuit breaker panel. These panels have certainly changed over the years. Either way, its job is to protect the home’s wiring from overload via either fuses or circuit breakers. The fuses are designed to take a predetermined amount of current and then the fuse link will melt.

Not only does proper wiring ensure the smooth functioning of a home’s electrical supply to connected appliances; it also protects the house from any kind of electrical hazard. With today’s higher energy consumption, it is imperative your home’s wiring is up to date. To find out if your home requires rewiring, contact the electricians from Penna Electric for an inspection or to discuss the electrical needs for your home.

Whole House Surge Protection

Many homeowners believe that adequate surge protection means simply plugging their computer or other electronic devices and appliances into a power strip. However, that is rarely the case. If you think it’s a good idea to save some money by opting not to install a whole house surge protection against surges from lightning or downed power lines – you may want to reconsider this decision.
