Werkheiser Electric has recently completed a service update on a 2-unit apartment. This involved replacing two old fuse panels with new breaker panels, adding a new 100 amp service and landlord panel, updating the grounding system, and reconfiguring the wiring to ensure compliance with current codes.
One of the primary objectives of this project was to improve safety in the building. Fuse panels were commonly used in older buildings, but they are no longer considered safe due to their potential for overheating and causing fires. By replacing the fuse panels with modern breaker panels, the risk of electrical fires has been greatly reduced.
Werkheiser Electric also took this opportunity to update the grounding system. Proper grounding is essential for maintaining a safe electrical environment, as it helps to prevent electrocution and other hazards. By ensuring that all wiring is properly grounded, residents can have peace of mind knowing that their electrical system is up to code and functioning safely.
One of the unique challenges of this project was reconfiguring the wiring to install shared area power to the landlord panel. This required careful planning and precise execution to ensure that all tenants would have access to sufficient electricity while following code regulations.
Overall, this service update by Werkheiser Electric not only improved safety and increased capacity, but it also brought the building up to code compliance. This is just one example of how Werkheiser Electric goes above and beyond to ensure the satisfaction of their clients.
Whether it's a small apartment complex or a large commercial building, Werkheiser Electric has the knowledge, experience, and dedication to handle any electrical project with professionalism and skill.
