Call Professional Electric, Inc. for electrical upgrades that will boost your home’s energy efficiency.

A growing number of homeowners are thinking critically about how much energy they use. Whether you are motivated by the thought of lower energy bills or are concerned about the environment, there are numerous electrical upgrades that improve the functionality of your home and also boost your home’s energy efficiency. If you are ready to make any of the following electrical upgrades, contact Professional Electric, Inc. for skilled, safe service. 

Replacing Outlets

Does your house have GFCI outlets installed in the kitchen, bathroom, and basement? Are you confident that the outlets in your home are in good condition? If you have an older home, replacing the outlets is an excellent way to boost your home’s energy efficiency and make your family much safer. Any part of the home that has elevated humidity levels should have GFCI outlets instead of traditional outlets.

Give Old Wiring the Boot

Old wiring is more likely to cause a house fire, is prone to issues with modern appliances, and is more likely to use significant energy. By investing in new wiring, you can feel confident in the safety of your home and family, and you will also be able to use electricity as efficiently as possible.

Upgrade Your Electrical Panel

Many homeowners don’t consider replacing their electrical panel until something is wrong. However, doing so can boost your home’s energy efficiency immediately. Modern circuit breaker panels are much more efficient and safe. Instead of replacing blown fuses, you also will only need to reset the breaker panel quickly. 

Use Timers and Dimmers

Depending on how you use your house and how many people are in the home, it could be a big challenge to ensure that lights are turned off when nobody is in the room. One way to get around this is by using timers and dimmers so lights automatically turn off when no one is nearby. 

Install an EV Charger

Are you one of the many Americans exploring electric vehicles? Installing an electric vehicle charger in your garage or on your property is very easy, but it may require electrical upgrades to handle the amount of electricity needed to charge your vehicle. Installing your personal EV charger is a great way to help the environment and make it easier to charge your car.

Add Surge Protection 

A single power surge can permanently damage your appliances and other parts of your home. Surge protection is one way to protect the electronic devices you’ve invested in and ensure they are unharmed. Surge protection can help ensure electrical efficiency and optimal performance by all your appliances.
