Electrical Service Upgrades
Do you wonder if your electrical service is safe, or you need a service upgrade. In order to determine such issue please consider the following important factors:
-If your home is old, and the service original equipment is old as well, especially if it was build 40 years ago and never had a service upgrade, then you might need one now.
Please contact us at 703-675-1439 and our master electrician Mr. Joseph Nasr will give you the best advice.
-If you have fuses instead of a circuit breaker then you need electrical service upgrade, because fuses were outdated since the years 1960s, please call us and request an electrical inspection that must be done by a professional electrician.
-If you are adding an addition or remodeling your house in a way that will add extra more space to your house especially when remodeling a kitchen, then you have to think about the additional equipments and appliances that will add more load to your existing panel, in this case most probably you need a electrical service upgrade.
-If you have a Federal Pacific Panel then definitely you need an electrical service upgrade, because these 1960s and 1970s cheap panels are a high risk, and a fire hazard, their breakers won’t trip when needed and can cause instant fire in your house.
-Please keep in mind that the electrical service panel is the most important electrical unit in your house and should be inspected and must be kept in a good condition to protect your home and family from fire or electrical shock.
Backup Power Generators
In Washington DC area, weather is not helping, thunder storms, floods and heavy winds in the summer, cold icy and heavy snow in the winter, caused lot of power outages for many days that caused lot of loss for business owners and home owners alike. When you need to use the power urgently, a power outage will strike, having a backup power generator that automatically picks up and keeps your home powered is a must. NASR Electric can install a system that can power the most important lights and appliances or if you want we can install a full house generator that can handle powering the entire house.
These systems generators run on natural gas or diesel, the backup generator will be connected to your electrical panel, the moment is detects the power loss from your utility company, will automatically start so you will get a backup power within few short seconds. Your electrical backup generator will be installed in a way to safely run during the power outage because it will disconnect your house from the utility company while it is running. In case the power is going on and off, the backup generator will not go off and on. Once the utility power has been on for 20 minutes, then it will go off and the power from the utility company will be powering your home again.
Natural gas powered backup generators give you peace of mind without the need to handle or store other any other type of fuel since natural gas service is already supplied to most homes.
In the case where you don’t have natural gas service at your home, diesel may be your best solutions because diesel generators can run up to 24 hours on a tank, depending on the size of the diesel tank you decide to install.
