Electricity supplied by your local utility company via a power line or underground via a conduit, enters the home through an electrical meter that is also monitored by the utility company.
The path which electricity flows in the home is known as a circuit. The electrical circuit is made up of:
- The power source
- Wiring – one hot wire, one neutral wire, and one ground wire.
For electricity to flow, the circuit must be closed, forming a loop. The flow of electricity is controlled by switches that break the circuit loop when switched off.
Our qualified electrical technicians should always be consulted when there is a problem with the electrical wiring in your home. We are also qualified to advise on specific wiring requirements you may have such as:
- Hot tub and pool wiring circuits
- Dedicated computer circuits
- New wiring circuits
Hot Tub And Pool Wiring Circuits
Everybody knows that mixing electricity and water is a bad idea, that is why you always need to consult our qualified electricians to install the wiring for your pool or hot tub.
The pool and hot tub draw a lot of electricity, so your existing electrical system needs to be assessed to see if the circuits can supply the electrical demand required, or whether they will need their own, separate panel.
The pool and hot tub require an electrical supply for the following:
- The pump
- The hot tub controller
- The pool and hot tub system
Dedicated Computer Circuits
We often forget that computers are classified as appliances, and consequently, depending on the size of your computer system, can draw a lot of power. It is recommended that computers are run off a dedicated circuit, with its circuit breaker, so the rest of the electrical circuit is not overloaded and does not overheat and potentially an electrical fire.
Computer systems are also very sensitive to any variation in electrical current, and the damage caused by an electrical current variation can often be very expensive. Having a dedicated computer circuit protects the computers from the unexpected changes that occur from the electrical noise caused by other appliances on the main circuit.
If keeping your computer system safe is a priority, we can help by installing and routing computer cable lines and Ethernet jacks – you will have peace of mind that running off their dedicated circuit, computers can access all the energy they need and are safer than they would be on the main electrical circuit.
New Wiring Circuits
Homeowners and businesses are adding more and more electrical appliances to their electrical circuit, without consulting an electrician. By doing this, they are overloading the system and pulling more amperage than the circuit can handle.
It is advisable to consult with one of our qualified electricians to assess the electrical wiring if:
- The electricity keeps tripping. You may be overloading the outlets especially if you have multiple extension cords.
- You want to install a security system – it may need a dedicated control panel.
- You want to install any specialty lighting like task, ambiance, or accent lighting.
- You want to purchase new appliances that may draw a lot of electricity.
- If you plan to install a pool, hot tub, or sprinkler system.
- If you want to install an emergency generator.
- If you are contemplating home efficiency improvements like solar panels or electric vehicle chargers.
After performing an inspection or during routine maintenance, we may need to rewire the premises if:
- It is an old building and the wiring needs to be updated
- You are remodeling
- The wiring is faulty and cannot be repaired
- The wiring does not comply with the Florida Building Code
