Electrical Panel Upgrades
and Repair

Your home’s main electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system, and distributes power throughout each room of your house. On average, these panels can last anywhere from 25 to 40 years, but with growing modern demands on electricity, they may require upgrades and replacements more frequently. A panel upgrade or electrical repair may be required if your appliances aren’t functioning at full capacity, if your lights are flickering, or if you’re going to increase the strain on your home electrical system by adding a solar panel, a hot tub, or a new HVAC system. 

If your home is more than 30 years old or if the panel feels warm to the touch, smells like it’s burning, or trips frequently, it may be time for a circuit breaker box replacement. Outdated panels run the risk of failing to cut power when there is too much electrical current demanded, or an unknown electrical problem, which could easily lead to major damage or even a home fire. When you call Gubruds, we will help you make the right decision and guide you through this process.

The purpose of a home electrical inspection is to make sure all the electrical system components in your home are up to legal safety standards. Homeowners should schedule a safety inspection whenever they purchase a new home, add a new appliance, renovate their spaces, or if their house is over 40 years old. 

Without the occasional inspection, you’re at risk not only of unplanned damage and repairs in the future but you could also be penalized for any aspects of your home that aren’t up to the National Electrical Code (NEC). When a Gubruds electrician visits your home, he or she will inspect and test all wall outlets, detectors, lighting, and other electrical components. Following the inspection, your serviceman will issue you a written report detailing the health of your electrical system. If you’re overdue for an electrical safety inspection, don’t wait. Schedule yours today!

A generator is a piece of equipment that produces electricity. Generators are commonly used as a backup power source for homes and businesses when the power goes out during storms, rolling blackouts, and other conditions. They will keep your electrically powered appliances functioning when your area isn’t getting power from the utility company.

Home generator installation generally only takes about a day, and installation costs associated with portable generators are the most cost-effective, ranging anywhere from $1,200 to $3,500 depending on the size and location of the transfer panel. They require only the installation of a manual transfer switch and a properly sized portable generator. A permanent home generator installation involves hooking up a larger generator to your home’s natural gas or propane system as well as an automatic transfer switch, which can cost from $6,500 to $20,000.

With built in generators you don’t have to worry about fueling or turning the generator on or off, as they are fully automatic. To get started, one of our experts can help you decide on the right size of generator and the ideal fuel source as well as the best location for it.

Home Electrical Wiring
and Rewiring

Damaged or outdated wiring is extremely risky to your family and your home. There’s no definitive answer as to when you should do this, but Gubruds recommends that you have your wiring inspected every 10 years or so. If your house is over 30 years old and still has its original wiring, you’ll more than likely need some type of upgrade to support your modern appliances.

Home rewiring might be necessary if your wiring is the knob-and-tube type or the old non-grounded type. Although a full home rewiring project is a very complicated process that involves replacing your entire electrical system, bringing everything up to code to ensure safety,  and can increase your home’s value.

Lighting serves a functional and aesthetic purpose. It can transform a space into a relaxing safe place or an invigorating workspace, depending on the fixture and bulb. In order to achieve your lighting goals, turn to the professionals. Gubruds is experienced with residential and commercial light fixture installation, and we can help you with any indoor or outdoor light solutions including recessed lighting, yard lighting, security lighting, chandeliers, pendant lights, ceiling fans with lights, and many more. 

We begin all of our light fixture installation services with a design consultation to assess your goals. Once we’re on the same page, we’ll swiftly execute the project and keep you in the loop from start to finish.

Smart Home Upgrades

Smart home features are becoming less of a luxury and more of an expectation among today’s homebuyers. New homes are even being built with smart home infrastructure already in place. It’s not hard to see why home automation technology has become the standard; it’s affordable, it boosts home value, and it allows homeowners to integrate and remotely control the function of their smart devices. 

People are also converting their homes into smart homes for purposes of security, modern comfort, and energy savings. What better way to protect your home than to have a camera installed on your front porch that you can see at all times? What easier way is there to save money on utilities than to schedule your HVAC system to regulate your house’s temperature based on when you are and aren’t home?

Gubruds specializes in smart home installations for:

    • Door locks
    • Security cameras
    • Home appliances
    • Lighting
    • Blinds
    • Climate control
    • and more!

Gubruds installed the 240V outlet needed for a level 2 electric car charger. They did great work! They were responsive when setting up a meeting for a quote and were very professional. I’d definitely good back to them for any future electrical work

Good contractor. I have a 2 story home and 3 electrical contractors said they couldn’t install fans in a 2 story home. I called Gubruds and they were able to do the job. They sent an estimator and were able to do the job the next week. The job went well. I like when business works the way it is supposed to.
