Install New Electrical Circuits

Need more places to plug in? Need to bring your electrical circuits up to code? Whether you’re adding an electrical outlet to an existing finished space, upgrading an outlet, or adding more circuits and outlets to an unfinished space, there are a variety of factors you should take into consideration including load calculations. On Time Electric routinely adds new outlets, upgrades circuits, runs dedicated circuits and adds breakers (or sub-panels) to accommodate any new circuit requirements. We can even increase the size of your electrical service if that is what is needed to accommodate your new requirements.

What to Expect from Electrical Outlet Installation

  • Materials: Outlet, electrical wire, outlet cover, electrician’s screwdrivers, wire nuts, outlet box.
  • Timing: A licensed electrician typically needs only an hour or two to install a new electrical outlet. If additional space is needed in the circuit main or if a sub-panel needs to be added, that can add substantial time.
  • Mess: Not much, really. There’s typically only some plastic, paper, wire, and packaging for the new outlet that’s easily picked up by hand and vacuumed up by our electricians.

Any Extra Costs When Installing Electrical Outlets?

  • Sub-panel addition: If your existing circuit panel can’t accommodate the new electrical outlet, you may need to have a master electrician install a sub-panel to add space
  • Premium Devices: Decorator receptacles, special NEMA configurations, twist lock or otherwise non-standard wiring devices can add to the cost.
  • Long Runs: If your panel is located more than 75′ from the outlet, then the extra length of the circuit could also add cost.

On Time Electric has the professional licensed master electricians to perform a load analysis, and assist you in making the safe choice for your electrical needs. We even have a group drywall specialists who work hand-in-hand with our electricians if your project requires cutting or patching any drywall! Call On Time Electric at 832-466-8463 today!

Aluminum Wiring Repair

Categories:

Aluminum wiring is all around you, and is safely used in many applications every day. Problems arise with aluminum wiring used for branch circuit wiring in homes in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Branch circuit wiring is the wiring that runs from the breaker box to the receptacles or outlets and to the lighting switches and lighting fixtures.

In these cases, aluminum conductors were attached to devices, many times devices not approved for use with aluminum wiring, and there is the problem. Aluminum expands under load and contracts back to its original size when no current is running through the conductor or wire. This constant expansion and contraction, can loosen up the connection to the electrical device or connector. Examples of such devices are plugs or receptacles, switches, wire nuts etc.

By utilizing a UL Listed connector such as AlumiConn®, you can reduce the hazards of aluminum wiring. AlumiConn® also allows you to change out devices, unlike the crimping method that some recommend.

Our electricians can repair your aluminum wiring and allow you to change your device color or style without having to completely re-do your aluminum wiring repair project.

Electrical Breaker Box Repair

Categories:

Electrical Breaker Box Repair

Breaker box repair or replacement should be performed by a licensed electrician. This is not a DIY project.

Breaker boxes are distribution points for your property’s electrical circuitry. They provide the power to your outlets, lighting and appliances. They are are also called electrical panels or load centers.

These panels contain your circuit breakers, and distribute electricity throughout your home or office. The number of spaces determines how many breakers or separate circuits you can have installed.

Electrical lanels can be very small, with as few as three breakers up to 42 circuit commercial electrical panels. The amperage rating of the panel determines how much actual electrical load the panel can carry.

Like any manufactured item, they do not last forever. A yearly inspection and tightening of lugs can prolong the life of most load centers or panel boards. Some older models may not have the desired trip characteristics, and may even no longer be UL Listed due to their inability to properly open a shorted or overloaded circuit.

On Time Electruc specializes in same day service in Houston and Austin, and in most cases our electricians can get your damaged or malfunctioning breaker box replaced within hours! Call us at 832-466-8463 get your breaker box replacement today!
