Electrical Service Upgrade in Hoover

Here are some photos from a recent electrical troubleshooting job in Hoover at a commercial shopping center. After visiting the location it was determined that a service upgrade was necessary.

We upgraded the electrical service to a 200 amp service. There was a bad code violation here originally, a wire rated for 125 amps fed into a 200amp box. This melted the conduit so we had to pull the old wire out one at a time and replace it with all new wire.

We are glad we got called out to look at this as it was a fire just waiting to happen. Please always make sure you always have a licensed and insured electrician working on any electrical work in your home or business. This isn’t something anyone should ever try to do yourself.

Is aluminum wire a fire hazard and what should I do about it?

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the mid-'60s to the early '70s, electricians in many new or remodeled homes installed aluminum wiring to feed branch circuits from the main panel to outlets and lighting fixtures.  What was later discovered is that while continuous runs of aluminum wire didn't present problems, when those wires were connected to light switches, outlets and other wires in junction boxes, the connections deteriorated and became fire hazards.
