Electrical Panel

 

Electrical  Panel

Although appliances and electronic devices are becoming increasingly more energy efficient, the typical home uses far more of them than ever before. This increasing demand on the electrical panel poses overloading hazards, which could result in breaker trips and potential electrical fires.


You may need a new panel if:

  • Your home still runs off a 60-amp electrical service.
  • Your home uses a fuse panel or split-buss panel (electrical panel with no main breaker).
  • You’ve just bought or sold a home.
  • You’ve added an addition to your home.
  • Your kitchen was recently renovated.
  • You’ve added a major appliance (e.g., hot tub, central heating, air conditioning, stove, microwave, etc.)
  • Your panel shows visible signs of wear, makes crackling noises, or feels warms.
  • Your insurance has changed.
  • You’ve added an additional panel in a shed, garage, or workshop.
  • You’ve duplexed the residence.

If you ignore warning signs your electrical panel is sending you, it could result in:

  • Flickering lights
  • Breakers that constantly trip or fuses that frequently blow
  • Panel overheating or arcing
  • Discolored wires, devices, breakers, or fuses
  • Circuit breakers that will not turn off 
  • Rusted and corroded breakers or wires
  • Loose terminal screws (commonly found with aluminum wiring)
  • Dangerous ungrounded electrical systems

 

 

Wiring Upgrades  

Wiring  Upgrades / Knob  and  Tube  Removal


Often the electrical system of a house is never inspected after the initial installation. Over time, loose connections and frayed, exposed wires can result from normal wear and tear. Some wiring systems are more prone to these types of dangers. Homes with electrical systems 45 years or older typically have outdated systems. Overlooking the maintenance or repair of your electrical system can increase the risk of electrical shocks, breaker trips, and residential fires.
 You know your home has an outdated electrical system if it has:

  • Aluminum wiring
  • Ungrounded or non-metallic wiring
  • Knob and tube wiring
  • Two pronged (ungrounded) receptacles
  • GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) receptacles
  • AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) receptacles

 

If you don’t upgrade your electrical system, you could experience:

  • Flickering lights
  • Overheated or arcing panels
  • Discolored wires, devices, breakers, or fuses
  • Rusted or corroded devices
  • Over-heated devices
  • Dangerous electrical surges

Lighting Upgrades  

Lighting  Upgrades


Did you know that lighting can account for more than 30% of your total energy cost? That cost is higher for healthcare facilities and hotels. It makes sense that one of the best ways to cut down on your business’ energy bill is to upgrade or retrofit your lighting. If you have outdated lighting, such as T12s to T8s, replacing them with energy-efficient alternatives can save you a significant amount. Our team can also find lighting solutions for your location that will reduce costs by reducing the number of lights.
In just one visit, the JHM team can assess your current lighting system and offer a variety of solutions to make your location brighter and your operations more cost-efficient. Incandescent are out-of-date and less efficient. While halogen is more efficient than incandescent, it may not provide the best light for your facility. Fluorescents are most commonly used in commercial environments, but CFLs can save you more money. HID or high-intensity discharge bulbs do last longer and cast more light, but the quality of light may not be appropriate for your employees. Finally, LED lights are the most efficient and longest lasting lighting solution on the market.
JHM solutions include:

  • Fixture Retrofits
  • HID to Fluorescents or CFL
  • HID/Fluorescents to LED
  • Exit Sign LED retrofits
