Residential electrical services are governed by different codes then a commercial building would be governed by. So it’s paramount that your contractor knows the difference. A contractor who is not ofay with the standard requirements can leave you with unnecessary expenses or worse still, faulty and non-compliant work. These codes do not only govern code compliance but also workmanship.
Residential electrical services include but are not limited to home inspection, code corrections, entire house rewiring, new wiring installations, service panel upgrading, changing from fuse breaker to circuit breakers and a bevy of other services. One area of residential electrical service that is often over looked is the location of the access point on a new building as well as the meter location.
Electrical services can either be located above or below the ground. Below ground services are usually more expensive to accommodate as this will involve some excavation and insulation of the underground potion of the wiring. Underground wire though is much more aesthetically pleasing.
In Toronto there are teams of electrical professionals that are readily available with fully equipped vehicles and a wide knowledge of all things electrical. Just around the corner or a phone call away; they can be there to serve you in a jiffy.
