What can go wrong with electrical wiring? 

Electrical wiring and all of the components that make up an electrical system are designed to provide trouble-free performance for years. But even the best-designed and installed system can fall victim to a variety of circumstances.

One of the most common problems is aging. An electrical system that was installed 40 or 50 years ago was state-of-the-art for its time. Technological advances mean that now we have more electronic appliances and devices in a home or business than existed 50 years ago. Electrical wiring may need to be updated to accommodate the newer appliances, equipment, and electronic devices in use today. 

Other things that can go wrong with wiring include: 

  • Rodents and insects can damage wires, interrupt the flow of electricity, and create a fire hazard. 
  • Damage to the structure such as a fire, water damage from a leaking roof, or an earthquake can cause rusted, weakened, or broken wires.
  • More appliances or equipment running than the original electrical system was designed for.

From home light switches to complex wiring and cabling systems for manufacturing or medical facilities, data centers, and small businesses, the San Luis Obispo electrical wiring team has the experience, licensing, and certifications to troubleshoot and upgrade any electrical system.

What does electrical wiring have to do with building, remodeling, or buying and selling? 

Without electrical wiring there are no lights, no television, no computers, no cell phones, probably no dinner, and no equipment to get the job done at work. 

  • Building or remodeling often includes installing new appliances and equipment. A licensed, experienced electrical wiring team makes sure that the new or upgraded electrical system meets all required electrical standards for the best performance.
  • Knowing the condition of the electrical system before committing to buying or selling real estate has a strong influence on property value and timing for buying or selling.  

Electricraft’s San Luis Obispo electrical wiring team has the experience, training, and licenses to install electrical systems that meet the stringent standards of the National Electric Code (NEC). The NEC is the benchmark for safe electrical design, installation, and inspection for residential, commercial, industrial, and public electrical systems.  

What does electrical wiring have to do with a solar system?

A solar system requires more than simply installing the panels and plugging them into the electrical system. The existing electrical system needs to be tested and inspected to make sure it can handle the power produced by the solar system. Testing, inspections, and any possible upgrades must be completed by a licensed, experienced electrician. 

Fortunately, with Electricraft you are getting both top-level solar installers and electricians who are licensed, certified, and experienced in all levels of solar and electrical systems. 

Does a home EV charging station need special electrical wiring? 

EVs come with a Level 1 charger that plugs into a 120V circuit, but the current electrical panel may not be able to handle the additional load or there may not be a conveniently located outlet. Rewiring may be necessary to upgrade the panel or install a new outlet. 

Some EV owners find that the Level 1 charger doesn’t meet their needs and opt to install a faster Level 2 charger, which requires an experienced, licensed electrician. 

Before deciding which level of charger to use, consult a licensed electrician to determine if the current electrical panel can handle the additional load. Upgrading may be necessary to support the charger’s power requirements.
