As technology changes, so do our home’s electrical needs. Unfortunately, older electrical systems were not built to handle the capacity and specific needs required in the modern world. Partnering with a certified electrician can help you identify potential issues and create an electrical upgrade plan that better meets your needs.
Linfoot Electric in Vancouver is an experienced electrical company that can assist you with an extensive range of electrical services. Here are some ways they can help you upgrade your home’s electrical system to meet modern demands:
EV charging station installation
If you want to purchase an electric vehicle (EV), planning for an EV charging station at your home is critical. Linfoot Electric can determine if you need an electrical service upgrade to more efficiently and effectively charge your vehicle. Typically, EV chargers work best on a 200 AMP service. Without proper capacity, you can run into slow charge times and circuit overloads. With many charging systems available, you even have the option of receiving notifications or scheduling its usage. Linfoot Electric will go over all your options, explain the installation process, and ensure you’re getting the best EV charging station for your needs.
Updating aluminum wiring
Many older homes built before the mid-1970s were outfitted with aluminum wiring. Unfortunately, aluminum conducts heat more easily than copper and creates overheating, especially at connecting points. Linfoot Electric can inspect your home for aluminum wiring and offer the best solution for a safe upgrade. While some homeowners choose to replace the wiring completely with copper, it can be an evasive and expensive retrofit. Instead, you can opt to have your aluminum wiring “pigtailed” with copper. This is when copper wiring replaces aluminum at the more hazardous connecting points. Gain peace of mind and protect your home with this important electrical upgrade.
There are many ways to ensure your home’s energy is operating efficiently. Investing in renewable energy services such as solar panels can help to reduce your electrical bill and carbon footprint. If installing a new energy system isn’t a valid option for you, there are still steps you can take. You can upgrade your older light fixtures to energy-efficient models and swap out your old incandescent lightbulbs with LED bulbs. Dimmer switches and motion sensors can also help you improve energy efficiency at home. Linfoot Electric can do an inspection of your current electrical system and make suggestions for energy-efficient upgrades.
