Cords, Cables and Appliance Termination for Home Electrical Lines

Cords, Cables and Appliance Termination for Home Electrical Lines Our customers rely on Epic Electric to come in and do electrical jobs quickly and efficiently – and to do them right. Some people like to pursue DIY solutions in their homes. That might be fine for a coat of paint or when some trim or molding is broken off of a door frame, but with electricity, many feel it's better to call the professionals. Some people feel like electrical work is easy, as long as you turn the power off before you start. However, some deceptive complexities do occur when you're trying to manage even a basic electrical project. One common example is adding an electrical line for a high-powered appliance like a dishwasher or water heater. Water heaters in particular, for example, utilize their own specific voltage connections, and it's not as simple as it may seem. Lots of people who are not professional electricians know the difference between 110 volts and 220 volts. Fewer of them may know the difference between three wire and four wire connections, but those who have tried to install a water heater on their own have often run into this discrepancy. The four wire setup was recommended by the National Electrical Code and has been implemented since 1996. It's just one of many examples of the building code changing and evolving over time. Four wire construction is meant to minimize the risk of death by electric shock. Practically, though, what this means is that the average home project gets harder to accomplish, because whoever is doing it has to figure out what's in place, and what should be in place. That may mean calling the big box shop where you got a deal on a water heater and trying to get someone to tell you what type of appliance you have – and working that knowledge into your knowledge of code requirements. If you start the project without knowing whether three wire or four wire is required, or what's in place, you're looking at a minimum of another trip to the store to try to figure out how to source a different adapter for the electrical line. So it's often not as simple as just running a line and plugging in your appliance. We run into customers who talk about these kinds of issues all the time. Sometimes someone who bit off one of these projects on their own got frustrated enough to call a professional shop to come handle a renovation or upgrade. Investing in professional electrical maintenance and repair service gives you a convenient and hassle-free way to manage home improvement tasks related to your home’s connection to the electrical grid. It also gives you peace of mind about the safety and stability of the electrical apparatus in your home.

Four Key Services for Our Customer Base
Posted on: 6/3/2019 at 11:20 AM

Epic Electric helps residential and commercial clients with a range of electrical needs.

We provide electrical contractor services to a broad spectrum of clients who need commercial electrician or residential electrician contractors for jobs both large and small. Our licensed electrician teams work on timelines and according to project management goals, capably outfitting client properties with what they need to function well.

Generator Installation and Repair

For both residential and commercial jobs, generator services are extremely important to the integrity of property management.

In a residential property, a properly installed and serviced generator provides electrical support to the property when the electrical grid goes down. That allows for keeping the home or space livable, sanitary, and habitable when there’s a problem with power line delivery.

This is even more important in many commercial applications, for example, commercial facilities that include:

  • Walk-in freezers
  • Coolers for refrigerated products
  • Point of sale infrastructure
  • On-site HVAC and sewer served by electrical equipment

All of these systems rely on having consistently available electricity and a generator provides key backup. (Some businesses are also required to have working generator services according to federal government rules.)

Electric Panel Installation and Evaluation

Electric panels and boxes are the heart of residential and commercial electrical systems. Our experienced technicians know how to set up or change an electrical panel to facilitate a client's needs. We add power, run lines and expand boxes based on careful industry standard and protocol, to add functionality to a property safely and efficiently.

Wiring Installation

In the electrical field, wiring installation is one of the logistically challenging services we provide to clients. Any significant wiring installation has to take into account new building and renovation timelines, and other services such as plumbing, drywall and finishing.

Our teams know how to plan a wiring installation project to make everything run on time, and to deal with logistical challenges such as obstacles and equipment installations that may happen around the same time frame.

Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations

Electric vehicles are really emerging on the American road, and electric vehicle charging stations are a common part of what we provide for property owners as this type of service becomes more popular across the industry and across the county. (As an early adopter, these services are especially popular in California.)

A wide range of commercial customer use EV charging stations to enhance their business locations – to offer electric vehicle drivers the opportunity to get a wider range for the road. These facilities complement a lot of retail business services, and so effective installation and maintenance are important.
