Fall can be a wonderful time of the year, but it may not be so great when you are constantly dealing with problems stemming from outdated electrical features. Plus, when you factor in the risk of electrocution and residential fires, it will be hard relaxing in your home at all this season knowing your family is not fully protected.

It may even come down to you just wanting to make improvements in your home’s aesthetic. Regardless, you can count on our team of licensed electricians to be there for you at any time.

Electrical Upgrades to Improve Your Home
Making changes to your home’s electrical system can bring so many benefits including improved property resale value and lower costs on energy bills. However, what do you upgrade? While there are many different changes you can make, our team of electricians would highly recommend you consider any of these upgrades
Smoke Detection: Getting woken up in the middle of the night by the loud screech of a smoke detector may disrupt your sleep, but you cannot deny it is important in keeping you safe. You need detection that will alarm you of even the slightest traces of smoke so your family remains safe and sound at any time of day. A working smoke detector is especially needed if you plan on turning on the furnace or light up the fireplace later in the season, which will see a higher risk of smoke
Exterior Lighting: Did you know the FBI reports a home in the United States is broken into every 15 seconds? It is an alarming statistic, but it can be avoided thanks to exterior lighting upgrades that you’re your home protected. Motion sensor lighting in particular do an effective job in ensuring intruders will not have many places to hide on your property. Outdoor safety lighting will also provide you with a clear pathway for escape in the event you need to evacuate your home.
Interior Lighting: Lighting in the interior of your home needs to strike the right balance between comfort and efficiency, especially when you consider how much you use rooms like kitchens and bathrooms on a daily basis. Lighting upgrades here may include new lights for bathroom mirrors, showers, cabinets, and even chandeliers for your home’s welcoming area. If you notice lighting in your home is flickering or costing you too much on bills, this fall will be the perfect time to upgrade with lighting that will provide high-quality performance without any additional energy costs.
Outlet & Switch Replacement: If you are still living 40 or 50 years in the past, your home may be equipped with two-prong outlets that are now unsafe and outdated to handle any of your modern electrical needs in 2016. This will result in power loss and several calls to your local electrician. They will need to be replaced with reliable, three-prong outlets instead. Similarly, if you have outlets & switches that appear significantly damaged, they need to be replace immediately to avoid any further hazards.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters: A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) can provide you with unprecedented life-saving benefits. It is equipped with a built-in circuit breaker that will quickly cut off power when it senses a stark contrast between input and output current. If not stopped in time, this can result in you experiencing electrocution once you come into contact with an outlet, potentially resulting in tissue damage. A GFCI outlet should be installed in places like bathrooms and garages where water can mix with electricity, thus creating a space riddled with safety hazards.
Electrical Service Panel Upgrade: Though an electrical service panel can last a long time and provide high-quality electricity for lights and appliances, it may be outdated and in need of upgrading. It is responsible for distributing energy to each of your most essential appliances. But once it stops operating you will experience a wide range of issues ranging from flickering lights to serious fire hazards. Though you may not need panel upgrades too often, it is something to consider this season if you sense your own panel is outdated.
Home Surge Protection: With electrical power running through your walls, a home surge protector allows only for a safe amount of energy to go to your appliances, lights, and electrical devices. Otherwise, it may result in power surges that will cut off energy flow altogether. Surge protection will keep the risk of this possibility to a low, so you can spend less money on appliance replacement and enjoy high-quality electrical power without worrying when it will unexpectedly shut off.
many of these upgrades improve two major areas of home life—safety and convenience. No matter if it is panel upgrades or improvements made to exterior lighting, our services will help make life in your home easier. You can spend the fall with a better peace of mind, knowing your family is being kept safe and comfortable throughout the season.
Mechanical & Electrical Upgrades
Mechanical and electrical upgrades are needed when plant equipment comes to the end of its life or to ensure best use is made of new technologies. If new technology becomes available and has an attractive payback period, this should be considered as a way of reducing future expenditure and improve efficiency.
Plant equipment is likely to be coming near to end of life if it drops in efficiency, there are increased running costs or the data centre is going out of thermal limits.

RE-WIRING AND ELECTRICAL UPGRADES
Since your property was built your electrics may have deteriorated and building regulations have changed so your electrical wiring may not meet current requirements.
Will I be notified when the work will be carried out to my property?
You will receive a letter from the Group to notify you that you are in this years’ programme and what work is required. The contractor carrying out the work will then contact you before work is due to start.
What happens next?
Our contractor will contact you to arrange a survey of your home and the work to be done, discuss the choices you have and answer your questions.
If you have any special requirements or disabilities that you think need to be considered during the work, please tell the contractors. Please also tell them about any electrical items you have in any out-buildings, such as a freezer in your garage.
Who will be doing the work?
The Group employs specialist contractors to carry out its re-wiring programmes. The contracts usually span several years and all of the Group’s appointed contractors have many years experience working in the social sector.
How do I know that I’m giving access to the right people?
Whenever a contractor comes to your home, please ask them to produce their identity card.
Manual to Electrical upgrade
The process is quick and simple and takes almost no time at all to complete. And you’ll always receive expert advice every step of the way, so you can be assured that you’re in safe and capable hands.
If your commercial property is equipped with manual doors, gates, or shutters, you may not consider an upgrade to be necessary. However, upgrading your manual entrances provides you with a faster, more energy-efficient and safer entrance.
First, this is great news if you’re trying to keep your bills down, as these entrances open and close quicker. Second, many come with in-built safety features that prevent them from closing if an obstruction is detected.
Third, automatic entrances also help those who are less able and may otherwise struggle with a manual entrance. We can adapt any existing manual entrance, and because our upgrades our designed for ease-of-use and safety, the possibility of impact damage is greatly reduced. Automatic entrances can be set up to always be at a safe height for entry and exit, thereby offsetting costly repairs.
Finally, by opting for an upgrade, you’ll be lowering your carbon footprint and doing your part to protect the environment. As mentioned, your bills will also be lower as automatic entrances can help to reduce heat loss.
