Upgrades, Upgrades and Upgrades

150a 001

During the last month and a half, we have done quite a few service upgrades. Must be the season. Call for your own job and get a free estimate!

We installed a new service on West Florence Ave. in the City, fairly typical 100 amps with all new entrance cable, panel, and exterior meter. The Customer called because he lost power in half the house. Turned out water  got into his panel in the basement and destroyed the main breaker (more properly called the service disconnect breaker in this case). Permit and inspection included.

Had the pleasure of doing a job for a very nice Fort Drum soldier on Warner Ave in the City. Guy had just bought the house, and got in over his head trying to change out the panel himself.
No problem! Had him up and running in no time, and he was very pleased with the price. Permit and inspection.

Then over to Lakeview Ave in the city, where an owner had converted his 2 family house into a one family residence – his own. So we took out the old 2 services and installed just one. We kept it at 150 amps with a brand new backboard and Cutler Hammer panel, and new entrance cable and meter. All the interior cut-over work was done in the basement with junction boxes, and a current meter was used to verify that the lines in the old 3- wire circuits were on the right breakers. Then we connected to the National Grid lines before the inspection, as a member of the ‘National Grid Connects’ program. This reduced the off time to a couple of hours while waiting for the inspection.

Grumbach Ave on the Northside…we did meters and panels
for a 2 family rental house the owner just bought from the City. The house had been vacant and needed not only to be converted to two meters but extensive upgrades.   Customer was very pleased with the job.. appearance, and quality and timeliness and all done for the reasonable price quoted ahead of time.

The pizza was great at a well known big pizza parlor, but the wiring had some clean up work to do. We fixed them up in a couple days, and the customer was very happy with the price we gave him . Oh, and he passed his city inspection, too.
