Did You Know ...

The average home has 20-30 circuit breakers ; and, electrical panels MUST have accurate labeling on the panel door, indicating which areas or appliances each breaker controls in the home.

Personalized Touch by tce

When you decide to partner with Twin Cities Electric for your home's electrical panel upgrade, repair, or installation, we provide the very same depth of care and attention to detail as we do in our own home. 

This tailored home service experience leaves our clients with peace of mind, knowing the job will be done right the first time — you and your family will have the lasting feeling of confidence, safety and proper home functionality for a lifetime.

Panel Age

We check the age of the panel to ensure proper functionality and long-term, "future-proofing"parts' compatibility.

Burns/Charring

Evidence of burns and/or charring is a very clear indication of immediate attention needed.

Double-Tapping

Double-tapped circuit breakers are an indication of poor electrical workmanship and are not within code compliance.

You should not see wires inserted into the "holes" of of the housing.

Proper Labeling

Proper labeling for each circuit breaker on the panel door is a MUST.

This ensures it is clearly indicated what each circuit breaker corresponds to within your home.

Damaged Wires

We thoroughly check for damaged and/or exposed wires to ensure your home's safety.

Proper Size

Circuit breakers being the proper size for their corresponding wire sizes is critically important for proper fit and functionality.

Grounding

There needs to be two ground rods outside with bare copper conductor going back to the panel with intersystem bonding.

Water Bonding

We conduct a thorough check for a proper water bond for the home plumbing system.

This ensures there is no risk of anyone in your home being shocked if the system becomes energized.

Panel Enclosure

We inspect the panel enclosure to make sure there are no holes and/or damage present.

1. Assessment + planning

We begin by listening to YOU, the homeowner, to fully understand, evaluate and calculate your home's electrical load requirements; then we assess the existing electrical panel's condition, detailed below:

2. obtaining permits

At Twin Cities Electric, you're not hiring a 'handyman' ... you're partnering with Pete Cicconi, a Licensed Master Electrician and Licensed Electrical Contractor.

TCE's attention to detail for code compliance and your home's safety is unrivaled, which is precisely why we'll ALWAYS obtain the proper permits from local authorities — this ensures our work is 100% licensed, warrantied, insured and guarantee-backed.

3. Disconnecting Power

Before any electrical panel work is performed, we will turn off power to the home at the main disconnect for everyone's safety.

It is at this point when we will begin the work of repairing and/or upgrading your existing electrical panel to make sure it is properly functioning, up to code, and safe for you and your family to resume everyday life activities within and around your home.

*In the event you need and agreed to an electrical panel replacement, we will proceed with that service.

4. panel replacement

We will safely remove the old panel and install the new panel while ensuring it's properly grounded to prevent electrical hazard — this is accomplished by upgrading your grounding electrode system and installing intersystem bonding that is compatible, up to code for your utility company.

At this point, we highly recommend installing whole home surge protection.

Additionally, if we need to upgrade or replace wiring to meet the new panel's specifications — or to comply with current code — we will ensure this is done in a manner that does not interrupt your daily activities. You have a life, and we understand that.

5. circuit breaker installation

The new circuit breakers will be installed in the new panel while ensuring they are properly sized and configured according to your home's specific electrical needs.

Due to our white-glove approach to providing you with only the highest quality service, performance, and safety standard practices, we highly recommend upgrading to AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters, commonly known as Shock Guard) and GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters, commonly known as Fire Guard) circuit breakers if you do not already have them.

6. Circuit Labeling

Have you ever seen an old panel with random circuit breaker labels, and you have no clue "what does what", or "turns this and that off/on"? ... yeah, so have we!

When we're done labeling your new panel, there will be absolutely no confusion about what each and every circuit breaker connects to in your home.

This is often an overlooked and/or poorly-done aspect of 'local electrical handymen' services.

7. Final Inspection

Rest assured, Twin Cities Electric gets it done right the first time — when we are entrusted into your home to work on your electrical systems, we take it seriously.

We will make sure our work 100% complies with local codes and regulations.

8. Restoring Power

After the new electrical panel passes the inspection, we will turn the power to the home on and thoroughly test that all the circuits are functioning correctly.

9. documentation

You know that story about a tree falling in the woods and someone hearing it? Yeah, we thought so ...

At Twin Cities Electric, we certify and gurantee our work and provide you with detailed documentation regarding every aspect of the services we did for you.

When you work with us, you'll never be left in the dark about a single thing — we look forward to you letting us brighten your day!
