Our Breaker Panel Repair
Your electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system, and a problem there could mean trouble for every electrical device in the house.

Benefits of Upgrading Your Electrical Panel
Even if you don’t think you need an electrical panel upgrade, here are a few reasons to consider it.
When you upgrade your home’s electrical hardware, you reduce the risk of fire and shock, protecting your home and everyone in it.
Many older homes don’t have adequate power distribution to meet the needs of today’s modern family. Upgrading your electrical panel ensures you have power for things like adding a hot tub or a new appliance.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Older electrical panels use more energy to do their job than modern systems, which means higher electrical bills for you.
Call one of our trained professionals for an electrical safety inspection today to determine if your electrical panel requires upgrading.

Backup Generator Installation
Florida residents are all too familiar with storms and hurricanes and the amount of damage they inflict on this part of the country.
They also know that it’s not a matter of if the next storm will come, but when.
Power outages are a way of life for many residents, and to deal with the problem, many opt to install a backup generator.
If this is something you’ve considered, but are hesitant to take the plunge, here are a few things that might sway you.
A lengthy power outage can cause food to go bad in as little as four hours, so having a backup generator keeps your refrigerator and freezer running and your food safe.
Imagine living through a power outage during a heatwave with no air conditioning. A backup generator installation keeps the AC on and your family cool.
Storms bring heavy rain, and with that, there’s a risk of flooding. Your home’s first line of defense against flood damage is the sump pump, but it won’t kick on if the electricity goes out. Having a backup generator ensures the pump works to protect your home.
Many people must check into hotels for several days during extended power outages, which puts their homes at risk from people who take advantage of empty houses. With a backup generator, you can stay safe in your home while protecting it.
