When you need professional electrical installation in Houston, look no further than Illuminations Lighting Design. With a team of licensed, professional electrical technicians, ILD offers electrical contracting services, special wiring services, and home power protection services that ensure the maximum operability and highest level of dependable use from your many investments in feature-rich appliances, home entertainment systems, and computer equipment.
Home Electrical Circuit Panels
Electrical system installation begins with our team conducting a systematic testing and analysis of the home the home circuit panel. This confluence of wires and breakers is the backbone, heart, and very soul of your home’s entire electrical system. Not only must the physical wires themselves feature commercial-grade quality and an appropriate gauge for safe conductance of power, but they must also be properly connected properly to the many power conduits that convey electricity to all parts of your home.
The first thing our team does is to check the viability of every home’s circuit panel and recommend the necessary upgrades when an issue or deficiency is discovered in the wiring. So many older homes in Houston need electrical service panel upgrades it is almost scary at times. We constantly uncover severely overdue needs for new wiring designs, new circuits, and new wire itself in order to meet with current fire regulations and to deliver a reliable supply of power to today’s sophisticated electrical devices.
Electrical Panel Dedicated Circuits
Most custom homes have complex mechanical sub systems and very expensive computers and peripheral devices. Even everyday appliances in these homes are now being built feature rich for user-friendliness and a broader range of functional applications. The demands for electricity placed upon the home electrical system is far greater than those of their counterparts in previous years.
To maximize the consistent operability of these devices at their highest level of quality, ILD technicians work very hard to isolate and document the exact the amperage and voltage requirements of every device. When it is discovered that current wiring configurations are not delivery consistent, appropriate amounts of power, our engineers run a dedicated circuit from the panel to the device. This ensures that the collective use of all home’s devices will not overload all or the entire electrical system. Installation of dedicated circuits guarantees that each device gets a steady supply of just the right amount of power.
Whole House Surge Suppressors
As effective as dedicated circuits have proven when it comes to maintaining a continuous supply of electricity to each major home device, dedicated circuits cannot buffer appliances (or themselves, for that matter), against transient power surge. Transient power surge will destroy home appliances in a matter of seconds if sufficient high voltage spikes in a nearby transformer, the home circuit panel, or an electrical motor connected to the home wiring network. As if this was not enough cause for concern, appliances themselves have become more vulnerable to transient voltage spikes than their more primitive counterparts of yesteryear.
This is because almost anything electrical that you buy now contains a printed circuit board that functions like a basic computer control within the appliance. You can only imagine what the first thing to blow is when transient voltage surges up a power cord and hits the appliance. That’s right—the printed circuit board.
The only way to protect these delicate memory cards is to protect the home electrical system with the installation of specification-grade, commercial surge suppressors.
Backup Home Electrical Generators
No matter how well-protected your home is against power fluctuation and transient surge, no one can stop a hurricane or severe thunderstorm from bringing down the entire power grid itself. This is why one of the most important upgrades you can make to your home electrical system is the installation of a commercial-grade backup generator.
By generator we do not mean portable emergency power generators that you can buy in any hardware store. Rather, we mean commercial grade standby generators that are permanently installed as part of your home electrical system. When professionally chosen and installed by experienced electricians who know how to match unit to the collective power requirements of the home, a standby generator is a sure line of defense against total darkness and lifestyle paralysis.
