  • COMPLETE HOME REWIRE: If you have an older home that has to be completely rewired and you want to do as little damage to the existing building as possible Elect Electric has the expertise and experience to  get the job done right. You can update your classic home with all the modern conveniences and safety features available today.  

  • COMPLETE HOME WIRING: Building a new CUSTOM HOME? Want to work with a contractor that does work to the highest standards, not the lowest price? Elect Electric is right for your team. We have an excellent relationship with the contractors and homeowners we work for.  On the last custom home we completed for an investor they told us, "Everything works! I build homes all the time and the electrical never works right, we always have to do major repairs. Everything you installed just works. That is awesome." It was nice to hear but we don't understand why it is such big news, isn't that how it is supposed to be?

  • FULLY AUTOMATIC BACK UP GENERATOR: Home Stand-By generators provide peace of mind and with a fully automatic system your new generator will be online in less than a minute. You can provide power to essentials like the refrigerator, well pump, heating and/or cooling system, internet router, TV and lighting. 

  • SEMI-AUTOMATIC BACKUP GENERATOR: Like a fully automatic back up generator a semi- automatic back up generator will give you peace of mind in case of a power outage. With a semi- automatic generator you still have the ability to provide power to essentials like the refrigerator, well pump, heating and/or cooling system, internet router, TV and lighting. The only difference is that you have to plug in and turn the generator on, then throw the transfer switch yourself.

  • COMPLETE 100- 200 AMP SERVICE PANEL UPGRADE/REPLACEMENT: Elect Electric is San Luis Obispo County's service upgrade expert. Your main electrical service panel has lasted a long time.  When you replace it you want it done right so it will last another 35-100 years.  This is defiantly not something you want to be thrifty on.  Not only do we do a professional installation that will last but we also make the process hassle free for our clients by coordinating with PG&E and the local authorities for inspections. Call today and never worry about your electrical panel again. 

  • HOME REMODELS: Home remodels vary in size and value but they are notably important to have completed by a professional who knows how to work on an older electrical system and integrate new wiring.  Many times a do-it-all contractor will hook up some wiring in the new part of the home to make it work, and in reality it works poorly or in some cases is unsafe.  Although they may do nice work, in our experience, it is worth the time and effort to hire a professional electrician who is up-to-date on all of the codes and best practices for home remodels.  If you are thinking of a project or even in the middle of one, have us out, and we will give you a price to do the job right. 

  • LARGE SUB PANEL INSTALLATION: If you are installing a new building on your property you may need a large sub panel to provide power. 120-240 volts and 277-480 volts.

  • SMALL SUB PANEL INSTALLATION:  You may be putting in a pool, a spa or a new addition and need a new sub panel installed from your main panel.  Elect Electric can get this job done for you in a fast, efficient and professional manor.  We will make sure the panel is sized for your needs and installed to meet those needs.  120-240 volts and 277-480 volts.

  • KITCHEN LIGHTING UPGRADE: Is your kitchen lighting out of date or just to dim to work under?  Many homes have the light boxes with old fluorescent lights that just do not produce the right amount of light.  Elect Electric can update your kitchen lighting with modern LED recessed lighting (we do other rooms too). The technician that comes out will help you with the lighting layout and make other recommendations you may be interested in. 

  • WHOLE HOUSE SWITCH & OUTLET UPDATE: If you have old dirty switches and outlets and/or if when you plug in something the plug falls back out or is loose, you may want to consider having them replaced with new, modern devices. (device = switch or plug) Not only will this give a great look to your home, it will also update the safety.  When Elect replaces the devices in a home we always update to modern codes.  That means we will install new Tamper Resistant outlets for child safety and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets in kitchens, garages, outdoors, and bathrooms. 

  • 100 AMP - 200 AMP, 120 - 240 VOLT PANEL REPLACEMENT: Panels are the main electrical safety feature in your home/business.  They stop the over-current that has the potential to cause a fire. Many panels are in disrepair and may not even work properly.  To find out about your panel schedule a free service call today.

  • LEVEL 1 DIAGNOSIS (MINOR): When the power goes out to a circuit in your home, and you are in the dark even after trying all the breakers, call Elect and we will diagnose the issue. (Diagnose is also called troubleshooting) There are three levels of diagnosis at Elect but the most common is the level one. It is for a point-to-point circuit outage and we normally find the issue during it.  More good news, the price of the diagnosis will go toward any repair we do to fix the problem. 

  • LAMP INSTALLATION/REPLACEMENT : Most people call lamp replacement, changing light bulbs. That is what it is.  Most of the time when people need a lamp replaced they combine that with other work we are doing to reduce the cost.  Sometimes a client just does not want to replace their lamps themselves and Eect Electric is there to help. ​

  • HOME SAFETY EVALUATION: Whether you have lived in your home for many years or you have just moved into a new home you may want to have a better understanding of the safety of your homes electrical system.  The home safety evaluation is just what you need.  Elect sends a qualified electrician to your home to do a visual inspection of all your homes devices. (Devices = Plugs and Switches) The tech will also test some devices and open up your panels and see how the wiring looks there as well.  Finally they will take a look inside your crawl space and attic to see if there are any issue that need attention. (The tech will not enter the crawl space or attic in this inspection, only look, and the attic should be accessible from a 6' ladder) Once the tech has a good idea of how your electrical system is they will let you know and give you a price for any repairs you may need.
