Electrical Remodeling in La Jolla

Many homes in La Jolla do not have up-to-date electrical systems. This can lead to problems down the line. Inefficient electrical systems can cost you a lot of money in electricity bills and can cause major and minor inconveniences. They can put you and your loved ones at risk.

Sappington Electric is a residential electrical contractor that offers remodeling services at an affordable price. Our local electricians are licensed and insured so that you know you’re getting what you pay for. All the work we do is guaranteed so you can have the peace of mind you need to live comfortably in your own home.

Outdated Residential Wiring

Homes that were built before the 1980’s were built with fuse boxes. Fuse boxes made a lot of sense back when homes didn’t have as many high voltage appliances as today. Typically, they were able to channel a maximum of 60-amps of power, but if you plan on running a refrigerator, a freezer, an electric dryer, a dishwasher, a television, and a computer in your home, it’s probably time for an upgrade.

Sappington Electric can do a full electrical remodel of your wiring system. We’ll replace the wiring and insulation so that it can handle the electrical current needed for modern appliances. We’ll also replace your old-fashioned fuse box with a circuit breaker so that it can handle up to 200-amps of current. The difference is huge. Not only will a new circuit breaker be able to handle more power, it will also shut off if it gets overloaded. This feature will protect you from electrical fires and when you want to turn the power back on you just need to flip the switch. No need to go to the store to buy a new fuse! It’s both safer and more convenient.

While we’re at it, we’ll also double check your electrical outlets to see if they are all grounded. Shady electrical contractors have a habit of cutting corners. We’ve found that many La Jolla homes appear to have grounded outlets, when in fact they don’t. Someone has simply installed a grounded outlet cover to cover up a hack job!
