5 Electrical Upgrades for Your New Jersey Home

electrical upgrades in New Jersey by Wave Electric

Your home’s electrical system isn’t something many homeowners think about. However, older homes likely can’t allow their owners to live comfortably. If your New Jersey home’s electrical system isn’t doing it for you, many upgrades can improve your home’s safety, efficiency, and comfort. Even modern homes can make use of some of the upgrades we offer at Wave Electric.

Here are five electrical upgrades to give your New Jersey home:


Modernized wiring

Our modern electrical demands can often be too much for older wiring. Older wiring can often fray or become damaged, which puts you at risk of electrocution or house fires. Giving your home rewiring can help you guarantee your wiring’s integrity and their ability to handle your electrical needs.


Whole-home surge protection

Whole-home surge protection is a way for homeowners to protect their electronics from power surges. Power surges of any size are capable of damaging your electronics and wires. No matter the size or source, whole-home surge protections will ensure your technology stays safe.


Electrical panel upgrades

Not only are our electrical demands hard on our wires, but also our electrical panels. You can use modern, energy-efficient appliances, but they’ll still use more energy than older appliances. Spiffing up your home’s electrical service panel can improve your home’s electrical capacity. Upgrading the electrical panel also provides a good opportunity to rewire your home.


Extra/Healthy outlets

Outlets act as a middle ground between a source of power and your electronics. If you don’t have enough for your home, you may have to switch around plugs more than you’d like. Also, we’re capable of fixing up any pre-existing outlets that are getting worn. Damaged outlets are shock hazards and can get filled with dust and debris, which could catch fire from a short circuit. Give us a call if you’re looking to fix or add outlets to your home.


Smart electronics

There are a variety of smart electronics out there that can improve your home’s quality of life. A good example of this comes from hardwired smoke detectors. These smoke alarms, unlike normal models, are interconnected throughout your home. When one detects a fire, all of them go off, providing warning throughout the building. Also, they hook up to your home’s power system in addition to having battery power as a backup. Electronics like these can make your home much safer and more efficient.


LED lights

LED lights are a great way to save money by improving your home’s energy efficiency. Not only are these lights more energy-efficient than conventional incandescent lightbulbs, but they last much longer, as well. Also, they’re much easier to dispose of due to a lack of dangerous materials like mercury vapor. These lights can be a great investment for any home.
