Wiring Updates/Installations

With new technology appearing on the horizon every day, many homeowners are looking to upgrade their home’s wiring system. Old wiring systems are chock-full of problems. Even as recently as 1970, residential electrical systems were using half the power we use today. Back then having a color TV and a Betamax was exciting and rare. The microwave was top of the line and freezers were still uncommon. Nowadays it’s impossible to go two minutes without using an electrical device of some kind. And every appliance, computer, or phone requires electricity.

With a full wiring upgrade from Alba Electric and Remodel Inc., you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that every wire in your home can handle high voltage appliances. We’ll check all your outlets for grounding wires and replace those that need it. All the wire insulation will be double checked for damage and decay.

The best way to do this safely and effectively is by working with a professional team like Alba Electric and Remodel Inc. Get the most out of your TV, phone and gaming with new wiring that will change the way you relax at home.

Lighting Overhauls

You’d be surprised at how many Philadelphia homeowners aren’t satisfied with their lighting and don’t even know it. Sometimes, it takes a lighting overhaul to realize the potential you were missing out on. Change the look and feel of your home, and improve your mood, with new lighting fixtures, dimmer switches and more.

The thing is, not all light was created equally. Using the wrong lightbulb can transform the look of your home. For example, suppose you paint your home a gorgeous soft yellow, but you install a cold blue fluorescent light. The combination will leave you wondering what the heck went wrong! Another great example is your bathroom where bad lighting can make your skin look grey and dull.

Interior design is all about creating the ideal ambiance for your life. A lighting overhaul is a great way to ensure that you’re making the most of it. We can help you install the right lighting for your home. Plus, a lighting overhaul can be a great way to save money on your energy bills! These days, energy efficient light bulbs come in more temperatures than ever. Meaning you can get the custom look you want and conserve energy at the same time!

Panel Upgrades

Many older homes require panel upgrades. If you’re having trouble keeping more than one appliance on at the same time and are always having to run to the breaker, it could use an upgrade. As experienced residential electricians, we can accomplish this project quickly, safely and within budget.

Fuse Panels

Does your home still have a fuse panel? If you know what this is, that may be the case. Fuse panels are not as safe as modern breaker panels. By upgrading to a breaker box, you’ll save on insurance and have a safer home.

Fuse panels were a great option when we used less electricity to power our appliances. Whereas fuses could channel up to 60 amps of electrical current, residential circuit breakers can handle up to 200 amps—that’s a huge difference. A circuit breaker can handle your electric dryer, your dishwasher, your blender, your oven, and your deep freezer, all at the same time.

Everyone who has a fuse box knows what a hassle it is to change a fuse. They always blow at the worst possible moment. And for whatever reason, you can never find the spare fuse you’ve been saving for that occasion. So you have to get in your car, drive to the store—hopefully it’s open—and buy a new fuse.

A circuit breaker eliminates that whole problem. If the system is suddenly overloaded with power, the breaker switch will cut the current. When you want the power back on, you just flip the switch on the breaker. It couldn’t be any easier or more intuitive. This added convenience also protects you and your home from electrical fires.

Surge Protection

Surges don’t happen all the time, and sometimes you may not even know when they strike. But you’re really taking your chances without proper surge protection. Left unchecked, they can ruin your appliances and even cause you physical harm.

Safety Inspections

Electricity is dangerous. In our years of electric repair and installation, we’ve been exposed to a lot of life-threatening situations. Keeping your home up to code is not something you can take lightly!

Give Alba Electric and Remodel Inc. a call and we’ll send a qualified electrical contractor to your home to assess the situation. At this time, they can provide you with a free quote for any necessary services.

When electricity goes wrong, it can be fatal. Especially for owners of older homes in Philadelphia, regular inspections are the best way to ensure that your home is safe for all those under your roof.

Standby Generators

One of the most important assets a home in the Philadelphia area can have is a standby generator. While they can often go overlooked by homeowners, you will be happy you made the investment in a standby generator if your neighborhood suffers from a prolonged blackout. Just imagine the next time that Philadelphia is hit with a serious heatwave, there will be rolling brown-outs across the city and many residents will be forced to make do without air condition, except for you. You’ll have a backup energy source to keep you cool even in the extreme heat.

Of course, you should never attempt to install a standby generator by yourself. They are complex pieces of machinery and you need to be sure that they will work in your time of need. The best way to make sure that your standby generator is correctly installed and ready to step in when the local utility companies fail. To do this, all you have to do is pick up the phone and call (267) 991-2254 and speak with Alba Electric and Remodel Inc. about our residential standby generator installation services.

Our residential electricians are among the best in the area when it comes to installing standby generators. The first thing we do is determine the right size of generator your Philadelphia home will need. It depends on whether you are OK with only having enough electricity to power your essential items like your refrigerator. We can just as easily install a heavy-duty residential standby generator that can power everything in your home until the local utility company gets its service back.

Once we have sized, placed and installed a standby generator in your Philadelphia home, our residential electricians will install the transfer switch so that you won’t have to lift a finger when the power goes out. As soon as the generator detects a power outage, it will automatically kick in and supply the electricity you need to function normally.

Solar Panels

More and more Philadelphians have been looking to make the switch to solar energy in recent years and Alba Electric and Remodel Inc.’s residential electricians have made a point of learning the ins and outs of solar panel sizing, placement and installation to maximize our clients’ savings while minimizing their ecological footprint.

The price of electricity has been steadily going up and there is no reason to believe that it will suddenly stop. So, why not make a few modifications to your home that can help you subsidize the money you are spending on electricity while boosting the value of your property at the same time?

When you let Alba Electric and Remodel Inc.’s residential electricians outfit your home with solar panels, you will be working with the area’s top solar panel experts. We pride ourselves on being able to make the transition to renewable energy seamless. So, if you are interested in making the switch, give us a call today at (267) 991-2254 to discuss your solar energy goals.
