Panel Upgrades

Panel Upgrades

Older homes are likely to have outdated electrical systems which simply can’t keep up with today’s technology, and the amount of energy these gadgets require. To prevent problems such as overloading of your electrical systems, power failures or surges, it’s important to keep your electrical panel up to date. Your electrical panel is an important part of your home, helping to provide electricity throughout your home. Power from your utility company flows through his panel, bracing out into the major branches of your home to power individual appliances, lighting and gadgets. Some signs of an old, failing electrical panel are constantly flickering lights, frequently blowing fuses, appliances turning off when you use another, circuit breakers which cause shocks, overheating or fires. If you notice one or more of these issues it may be symptomatic of a failing panel, and you might need an upgrade. Ontime Electric provides panel upgrades from:

  • 60amp to 100amp
  • 100amp to 200amp
  • 200amp to 400amp

Knob and Tube Rewiring

If you live in an older home, you may still be relying on a knob and tube electrical system. We can either repair your older system, offering rewiring for knob and tube, or complete system upgrades. As knob and tube wiring is unsafe, prone to failure and simply doesn’t provide enough power for the modern home, it’s imperative to upgrade it as quickly as possible and prevent problems and safety hazards. We re-wire old wiring with new, updated wire systems, replace the rubber sheathing around older knob and tube systems and offer complete system upgrades such as panel upgrades and full home-rewiring.

Aluminum Rewiring

Aluminum Rewiring

Homes built around the 60’s may have aluminum wiring installed. While in certain circumstances, aluminum wiring is a safe alternative to copper, it is also an outdated method which causes electrical problems in modern homes due to the softness, malleability, and likelihood of expansion of the metal. Older homes with aluminum wiring may now be experiencing rusted wires, which prevent proper conduction and result in safety hazards. Some solutions to these issues include: rewiring of your home with modern equivalents, installing aluminum approved receptacles and switches, or bridging a new copper pigtail wire between the existing aluminum wire and your electrical devices. These processes are quite complicated, and require a skilled electrician to fix.

Ontime Electric offers these services, and can advise you on how best to fix your aluminum wiring issues. We offer cost-effective solutions for your home’s wiring problems.

Fuse Box to Breaker Upgrades

Modern homes are outfitted with breakers, not fuses. The old fuse electric box system is less efficient, and more prone to failure resulting in the need to change your fuses regularly. If you’re considering an update to your electrical system, one of the best portions you can invest in is a fuse box to breaker upgrade. Not only are breakers far more efficient, they do not blow, do not require switching and offer a new, efficient and safer alternative to older systems. Ontime Electric offers fuse box to breaker upgrades, alongside our other upgrades, repairs and installations. We can assist you with choosing the most efficient and cost-effective system for your home.

Backup Generator Installation

Until we experience a power outage, we are unaware of how much we depend on electricity. Living in a country such as Canada, where snow, rain, freezing temperatures and unforeseen power outages are common, having a backup generator in your home may be massively beneficial to your everyday life. Most homeowners are simply not prepared for a power outage, and don’t bother to think about the man benefits of a backup generator, which can provide you with security in the face of power failure. Ontime Electric offers and installs a variety of backup generators, so that you can have the added security of constant power in your home or business.

Specialty Wiring and Lighting

In addition to all the above, as well as our general electrical services for residential homes, we offer: outdoor lighting systems, corrective wiring, installation of accent lighting, system wiring for smoke detectors and security systems, pool lighting, electric hear, landscape lighting, pump and equipment wiring and more.
