Blog submitted by Hauer Power in Edmonton

In today’s technology-driven world, electricity is vital, as it powers our homes and businesses, says Edmonton electrician Ryan Hauer of Hauer Power Electrical. As our reliance on electrical devices like computers, gaming systems, entertainment systems, tablets and, of course, cell phones, not to mention our love affair with appliances like instant pots, air fryers, air conditioners, and more, grows, so does the demand for our electrical systems. To ensure the safe and efficient operation of these important electrical devices, an electrical panel upgrade is sometimes necessary. Whether the panel is old and worn out or if the panel has simply run out of space for new circuits, upgrading is eventually necessary.

While the temptation to attempt DIY upgrades may be strong, it is essential to emphasize the importance of hiring a licensed Edmonton electrician for this task. In this article, we will explore the reasons why this is the right choice for your electrical panel upgrades.

Safety First

Safety is of paramount importance when working with electricity in any capacity. Electrical panel upgrades are no different that require working with live circuits and handling high-voltage equipment. Without proper knowledge, training, and experience, there is a significant risk of electrical shock, fires, and other hazards, not to mention the potential risks that an improperly installed electrical panel poses to the home.

Not only the increased risk of electrical fires but also electric shocks from ungrounded electricity in the circuit that can damage electrical devices and hurt anyone near the electrical discharge. Licensed Edmonton electricians like those working at Hauer Power have undergone rigorous training to ensure that the upgrade is executed safely and with the utmost care, minimizing potential dangers to the occupants and property.

Compliance with Regulations, Permits and Inspections

Electrical codes and regulations are put in place to ensure the safety of electrical installations and the people using them. Electricians at Hauer Power Electrical strictly adhere to safety standards, such as the Canadian Electrical Code, the Alberta Electrical Codes and the Edmonton and surrounding area safety codes. In fact, licensed electricians must be well-versed in the latest local codes and regulations governing electrical work in order to retain their licence, especially as the national safety standards get updated every three years.

They understand the specific requirements for electrical panel upgrades, and they will make sure the installation meets all necessary standards. Compliance with these regulations not only guarantees safety but also helps avoid potential legal issues that may arise from non-compliant electrical work.

Expertise and Experience

Electrical panel upgrades are complex tasks that require specialized knowledge and experience. The licensed electricians at Hauer Power have undergone comprehensive training and apprenticeships to acquire the skills necessary to handle various electrical systems, whether at a person’s home, business or industrial setting. These skilled tradespeople possess an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of electrical panels, such as load calculations, wire sizing, and circuit configurations. This invaluable expertise allows our Edmonton electricians to identify potential problems, troubleshoot issues effectively, and execute upgrades with precision.

Long-Term Savings

While hiring a licensed Edmonton electrician for an electrical panel upgrade will incur a larger cost than trying to do it yourself, it is a wise investment in the long run. A professionally conducted upgrade ensures that the system functions efficiently and optimally, reducing energy wastage. Additionally, the electricians at Hauer Power will recommend high-quality materials and ensure proper installation, minimizing the need for future repairs and replacements. This translates to cost savings over time and peace of mind knowing that the electrical system is in good hands. Get it done properly the first time and avoid the hassle and expense of having to do it over.

Warranty and Insurance Coverage

When you hire a licensed electrician, you gain the benefit of warranties on not only the materials used by Hauer Power but also the labour they perform. This is peace of mind for you because if there are any issues that arise shortly after the upgrade, Hauer Power will rectify them at no additional cost. Moreover, their Edmonton electricians carry liability insurance, which protects you and your property in the rare instances of accidents or damage occurring during the upgrade process.

If you try to do the upgrade yourself and you make an error that damages anything, not only will you end up having to call an Edmonton electrician in to fix it, but it will also cost you more to fix the problem than it would be to have had the experts do it correctly in the first place. There is also peace of mind in knowing that the work is done correctly, helping you sleep soundly at night, and knowing your family is safe.

Peace of Mind at Home and Work

Electrical panel upgrades might be necessary for your new efficient electrical system. Entrusting this task to a licensed Edmonton electrician is essential to ensure the safety of your home or business and comply with local regulations. Their expertise, experience, and adherence to safety standards offer peace of mind and long-term savings.

Remember, when it comes to electrical work, it is always best to leave it to the professionals.
