About this Project
It is never convenient when the heart of you home stops beating. This 32 year old electrical panel had a few indications that it should have been changed earlier. Melted wiring, worn out breakers from nuisance tripping were the primary causes.
- Aged passed 25 years
- Poor Yearly Maintenance
- Over Loaded Circuits
- Outdated Safety Features
When we received a call from this homeowner the power to the entire house was out. Without electricity, they were in dire need of help and so our electrician got dispatched immediately.
The team examined the electrical panel and discovered that because of its age, it was wearing down quickly. Due to this wear and signs of overheating, they recommended upgrading the whole electrical panel.
There are a lot of moving parts when a panel needs to be changed. Partnering with the City of Calgary and Enmax we are able to make sure things go off without a hitch. Scheduling time with Enmax to disconnect power and booking an inspection with the City of Calgary Electrical Inspector is all part of completing the work.
To ensure power is restored promptly, this work is orchestrated to be completed in 6-8hr time frame. While changing out this panel the electrician addressed and re-ran a damaged circuit to the dishwasher.
Once the Siemans panel had been installed all circuits were tied into the appropriate breaker and labeled.
Enmax returned to restore power and all circuits were tested. All was operating as expected and the homeowner was happy with the efficient service.
