From enhancing safety to improving functionality and energy efficiency, these upgrades will help transform your home into a modern and reliable living space.
Electrical Panel Upgrades:
One of the most crucial electrical upgrades to consider during your renovation is an electrical panel upgrade. The electrical panel, also known as the breaker box, is the central control unit for distributing electricity throughout your home. Older homes often have outdated panels that may not meet the electrical demands of modern households. Upgrading to a larger capacity panel not only ensures a reliable power supply but also reduces the risk of electrical overloads and potential fire hazards. Our licensed electricians at Deomax Group can assess your electrical needs and recommend the appropriate panel upgrade for your home.
Rewiring and Circuit Additions:
During a renovation, it’s an opportune time to consider rewiring and adding circuits to accommodate the electrical requirements of new appliances, lighting fixtures, and outlets. Outdated wiring can pose safety hazards and may not be sufficient to handle the increased electrical load of modern lifestyles. By rewiring and adding circuits, we can ensure that your electrical system can safely support all your electrical needs. Our experienced electricians will carefully assess your home’s wiring, identify any potential issues, and provide efficient and reliable solutions for your renovation project.
GFCI and AFCI Installations:
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) and Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs) are essential safety devices that protect against electrical shocks and fire hazards. GFCIs are typically installed in areas where there is a higher risk of electric shock, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor outlets. AFCIs, on the other hand, detect dangerous electrical arcs that can cause fires and are commonly installed in bedrooms, living rooms, and other living spaces. Upgrading your electrical system to include GFCIs and AFCIs ensures the safety of your family and helps meet the electrical code requirements.
Upgrading your lighting system can significantly enhance the ambiance, functionality, and energy efficiency of your home. Consider installing energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures that consume less energy and have a longer lifespan compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. LED lights also provide a range of color options, dimming capabilities, and improved durability. Additionally, our team can help you with creative lighting designs to highlight architectural features, improve task lighting, and create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your renovated spaces.
Smart Home Integration:
As technology continues to advance, smart home integration has become increasingly popular. Upgrading your electrical system to include smart home features allows you to control lighting, thermostats, security systems, and other appliances through your smartphone or voice commands. Smart home automation not only enhances convenience but also contributes to energy efficiency by enabling you to monitor and optimize your energy consumption.
Reducing energy consumption is not only beneficial for the environment but also helps lower utility costs. During your renovation, consider incorporating energy-saving upgrades such as programmable thermostats, energy-efficient appliances, and motion sensor lighting. These upgrades can significantly reduce your energy usage without sacrificing comfort or convenience. Our team can guide you in selecting and installing energy-saving devices that align with your goals and budget.
