It is no longer news that buildings with aluminum wiring installed have been advised to replace it with copper due to several issues bordering around safety, efficiency, performance, and durability. However, hiring experienced Calgary electricians from Ampt Over Electric, you have nothing to worry about.

Many years ago, aluminum wiring was popular, but now, its flaws have become evident, which necessitate its unavoidable replacement. One of the reasons given for the replacement is breakage caused by inappropriate stripping of the wires and extreme tightening of splices. This situation has created a lot of hassles for homeowners in the areas of functionality and getting their homes insured because most insurance companies suggest aluminum wiring replacement with copper before they insure a property.

To ensure full compliance with this request, homeowners in Calgary must hire licensed electricians that are experienced and trustworthy to replace the aluminum wiring with copper. You should never wait until get out of hand before you carry out necessary aluminum wiring replacement.

How do you discover aluminum wiring problems?

Here are the noticeable symptoms of faulty aluminum wiring:

  1. Plugs will not work
  2. Frequent tripping of circuit breakers and failure of fuses
  3. Flickering lights
  4. A strange smell like a burning plastic
  5. Constant sparks or smoke around electrical devices

Ampt Over Electric’s Calgary electricians can diagnose the symptoms highlighted above and provide the right electrical solutions to your aluminum wiring problems. If you need aluminum wiring replacement, we assure you of the best Calgary electrical services possible: Our electrical services are efficient, prompt, reliable and highly recommended my local Calgary homeowners.

Circuit breakers are located in a panel with the primary purpose of cutting off power when the electrical current is extremely high. Circuit breakers are a replacement for fuses that were previously used on old home electrical systems to prevent high current from getting to the panel.

Circuit breakers can be repaired and replaced depending on the level of electrical damage to it. However, you should not attempt to work on an electric circuit breaker except you have electrical experience. There are usually multiple breakers on a circuit breaker panel with each one serving a different circuit. Always contact a licensed Calgary electrician whenever you have any electrical issues either with your circuit breakers or other appliances. If you are unsure please do not attempt DIY electrical work in the name of safety.

At Ampt Over Electric, we offer electrical repair and replacement for all types of circuit breakers. Repairing your faulty breakers (if they can be repaired) can be a fraction of the cost of new circuit breakers; so, let us handle your circuit breakers for you, it is what we have been trained to do. We have highly qualified electricians in Calgary that will repair your broken circuit breakers safely in no time.

A hot tub enhances the functionality of your home by adding a level of luxury and a place to relax and relieve stress at the end of the day. In Calgary, these are highly sought out because of our bizarre weather patterns. However, a hot tub installation should be carried out by a certified electrician that is experienced in working with hot tubs. The worst thing you want is to get a new hot tub and have the installation go wrong and not only delay the project but perhaps end up in a costly endeavour simply over hiring unqualified electricians. Besides, potential dangers are involved in wiring a hot tub since water and electricity do not mix; as a result, it is a job for licensed and qualified Calgary electrical contractor.

Several technicalities are involved in electrical hot tub installation ranging from the required voltage to appropriate gauge of wire, the location for the electrical connections, and safety precautions to follow. Avoid do-it-yourself hot tub installation by all means; this is not a joke and can cause bodily harm and even death.

To change old wall plugs and switches, Ampt Over Electric is your reliable Calgary electrician.

Ensuring that your home electrical wiring meets the standards laid down by the Government of Canada’s Electrical Code is our priority and getting it done correctly is our forte.

As your home gets older, the electrical panels have a hard time meeting with the increased electrical demand on the system. Older homes have 60AMPS while the new electrical code specifies that homes should be 100AMPS. If your home is more than 10 years old, it may not meet the electrical code set by the government of Canada. Consequently, you need to upgrade your electrical panel to meet the latest code.

These days TVs, computers, lights, and other electrical gadgets are energy efficient, but with our demand for the abundance of power this increasing technology requires a higher demand for electricity. As a result, an efficient electrical system in many homes and businesses in Calgary need to install sub panels, upgrade panels for renovations or expand electrical systems to meet demand.

You may need electrical panel upgrade in your home for these two reasons:

  1. the electrical panel becoming too small to keep up with the electrical needs of the home, and
  2. the electrical panel becoming unsafe and at risk of causing an electrical shock or a fire.

Our local electricians specialize in many Calgary electrical services to a property including panel upgrade services. Some of these are shop panel upgrades, guest house panel upgrades, and basement suite panel upgrades.

I hired Jorden to wire in a new hot tub. Jorden was running a little late but called and asked if I was ok...that was a nice touch. When he arrived he assessed the job and properly got to work. I found Jorden to be very communicative and personable. He understood what needed to be done and did it very efficiently. When it came time to turn on the hot tub he noticed that one of the fuses on the tubs board was not functioning. He the ran all over town looking for the right fuse and replaced it. Then the hit tub wouldn't turn on. After he called the hot tub company and tried to figure out what wrong, he eventually had to leave with the hot tub not working. Turns out the hot tubs motherboard was defective and had to be replaced. I found Jorden to be extremely careful and effecient and would definitely recommend him for any electrical needs.
