Main Panel Upgrade/ Replacement
If you have an older panel with faulty and/or outdated circuit breakers you may be risking any number of potential problems. A new panel can ensure proper electrical protection for you and your family, not to mention a marked improvement to circuit dependability. Legacy Electric will evaluate your existing panel and help you determine if it’s time for an update/upgrade.
Flickering lights? Outlets not working? Circuit Breakers nuisance tripping? Legacy Electric has extensive experience solving these and many other similar conditions and *we will NEVER charge you if we can’t identify the problem. We troubleshoot all types of residential electrical issues.
Whether you’re wanting to renew and rewire your existing structure or you are building an entire home or a small addition, Legacy is well seasoned in the wiring business. We have completed extensive rewires of 100 year old homes in Curtis Park, traditional ranch style homes in Carmichael, Fair Oaks, and throughout the region. We have completed numerous new construction wiring projects throughout the region as well.
New lighting can change the way you live! Seriously! For a relatively small investment, recessed (can) lighting can take your living space(s) to a whole new level. With the advent of LED technologies and “smart switching” there has never been a better time to make the switch! Lower energy consumption, better light quality and much less heat output are just a few of the benefits to upgrading to LED from incandescent or florescent lighting.
Are permits required for all electrical work or new installations?
No. Not all electrical work requires permits. Generally, minor circuit work such as ceiling fans, light fixture swaps, and similar work does NOT involve permits and jurisdictional inspections. Some larger jobs, however, such as meter panel upgrades and some spa circuits as well as new additions may require permitting and inspections. In the event that your work requires permits, Legacy Electric will handle all of the details to ensure a smooth and hassle free project.
Can I just hire a handyman to do some of this work?
While it is true that some of the work performed by licensed electricians can be relatively routine; it is also true that licensed and certified electricians have extensive training and experience that ensures a safe and reliable installation or repair. The average licensed electrician has over 15,000 hours of on the job experience as well as class room and theory study. Ultimately, an experienced and knowledgeable electrician can save a lot of headaches and help give you real peace of mind.
Is “Knob and Tube" wiring really dangerous?
Generally, if you have antiquated knob and tube wiring in your home you are rolling the dice. While an untouched and well preserved wiring infrastructure can seem to operate fairly well, the potential for problems is statistically higher than with more modern wiring methods. Knob and tube wiring utilizes “open junctioning” of circuit wires. At these points of open junctioning within walls and crawl spaces there can be loose wire arcing and a potential for fire events. Flickering lights or appliances are a good indicator that these loose junctions may exist. We never try to scare folks into doing unnecessary work. Just be aware that the older wiring methods do have their shortfalls.
