Questions générales

What to do if my appliance keeps tripping the breaker?

The circuit is being overloaded so the most common problem is too many plugs in one socket. You can check if it is the circuit or the appliance by plugging it into a separate socket (if possible). If you need assistance we can come to your home, diagnose the problem and provide an estimate for any repairs. 

What is a GFCI?

GFCI stands for ground fault circuit interrupter. These special plugs have a built-in safety mechanism that triggers in the event of a sudden surge of electricity. GFCI outlets are required where electricity meets water, so kitchen, bathroom & spa.

How do I book an electrical inspection?

If you need an electrical inspection can the Electrical Safety Authority at 1-877-372-7233 or visit this link 

Why hire licensed electricians?

Licensed electricians carry insurance, are qualified to perform electrical work in Ontario and help reduce the risk associated with hiring unlicensed help.

Do you upgrade electrical panels?

Older and smaller homes in Ottawa are sometimes equipped with an electrical panel that is too small for modern needs.  If your electrical panel needs to be upgraded we can replace it with a new one suitable to supply your home with electricity.  

Do I need a brand new panel for a hot tub?

If you only require a small increase in electricity and not planning any future appliance purchases then we can install something known as a pony panel.  These will provide enough voltage for electrical renovations that need limited upgrades. 

How can I protect my home from electrical surges?

A home equipped with surge protection and proper grounding will have more protection from electrostatic damage to appliances and electronics (TV, laptop,  Xbox) connected to outlets in the home.
