If your home or business has experienced dimming or flickering lights, sparks from an outlet, or frequently blown fuses it may be time to invest in an electrical rewiring service by D&D Electric. The entire electrical system of your home or business consists of wires and circuits. These wires and circuits provide direct electrical connections from the main electric panel and transfer it to outlets and appliances around your property. The standard electric circuits in any home wiring system in the United States are typically 120-volts or 240-volts.
Failures in your circuit wiring can cause problems and are a potential fire hazard. It is estimated by The Consumer Product Safety Commission that 50 people die every year due to accidental electrocutions as a result of fault residential wiring, panel boards, and circuit breakers.
Electrical rewiring projects are not a DIY venture. Our trained technicians provide whole house re-wiring and evaluation of your circuits, to guarantee you are complying with the state codes while ensuring a safe delivery of electrical current throughout your home or business.
Call D&D Electric at (217) 502-0083 for your electrical rewiring needs.
The main electrical panel is the nucleus of your home or business’s electrical system and the distributor of all the electrical circuits on your property. With every addition of electrical circuits and appliances, you amplify the demand of your electrical panel, which could cause problems with the distribution of electricity over time. These mishaps depend on the year your home was built and the amount of electricity you use, which factor into whether you should replace your power panel or add a sub-panel to balance out the demand.
At D&D Electric, we evaluate your electrical systems to determine whether it would be best to upgrade your main electric panel or simply install a sub-panel.
If your home already has a contemporary electrical system, but still suffering electrical issues, it may not need a replacement, but an addition.Two main reasons why you might want to consider installing a circuit breaker sub-panel:

We are experienced and offer our perspective on where each device should be placed for maximum safety and help provide maintenance checkups and battery replacements when needed.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors – Carbon monoxide is nothing to fool around with. It is one of the leading causes for deaths by poison in the US, mainly because it has no odor, color, or taste, leaving it nearly impossible to detect – unless you have a carbon monoxide detector.
