Updating electrical service

At some point in a home's life, installing new receptacles, switches, and light fixtures will be a good idea.

– Per CA law that passed in January 2017, you must trench this area and repair the concrete which is an additional cost or you can increase your 100 watt panel to a 125 watt electrical panel.

– Can provide professional stucco repair to match the existing texture for a seamless finish at an additional cost.

Kitchens wired in the 1960s may have a similar, easily missed complication.

What if access to my electrical panel vault is encased in concrete and I want to upgrade to a 125 amp electrical panel?

The homeowner replacing outlets and switches without a glitch is rare. More than one electrical item may fail to work as a result of a single mistake.

An easy goof comes when replacing a plug-in receptacle, half of which has been controlled by a wall switch.

When you connect the new single-pole switch up, you can get confused by the new green screw they come with and hook one of those blacks to it.
