Electrical Panel Upgrade

What is an electrical panel?

The electrical panel provides electricity to appliances in your home. Power from the utility company flows into the home through this panel, then branches out into major electrical branches, dwindling into smaller branches to distribute power. A properly functioning electrical panel is essential to the safety of your family and home.

Reasons you may need an upgrade:

Particularly in the kitchen, which is appliance-heavy.
New addition of major appliances; central heating and air, stoves, spas, garage power equipment, and more.
Adding outlets to your home.

If have one of the below electrical panels; which are known to deteriorate and pose possible safety issues:

• Federal Pacific Electrical Panel
• Zinsco Electrical Panel
• Pushmatic Electrical Panel
• Fuse Box

Home showing these signs:
Need to turn off one appliance to use another.
Appliances running at less than full power.
Two pronged (non-grounded) outlets.
Home not equipped with GFCI's (ground fault circuit interrupters) in necessary areas.

Types of Upgrades:
Range from installing additional circuit breakers in existing box to adding a subpanel for expansion. Replacing an old fuse box or inadequate panel to provide higher energy capacity.

I can evaluate the condition of your current panel to determine the best course for you. We work closely with RG&E to arrange service cut-off and turn on. We arrange for inspection as required. Generally a service upgrade is completed in one day; allowing for as little inconvenience to you and your family as possible.

Pilosi Electric has experience doing service upgrades. A service upgrade will increase the value of your home in years to come.

Do you prefer incandescent, LED, fluorescent or halogen lighting?

Ceiling Fans

Several things to consider when installing a ceiling fan:

Is ceiling fan installed on a flat or sloped ceiling?
Height of ceiling to determine if flush mount or down rod is best.
New installation or replacing existing fixture?
Control for fan-wall switch, remote control, or pull string?
Access to fan-attic access, bedroom above, etc. . . .

We have experience installing all types of ceiling fans in many locations. Customers enjoy ceiling fans year round-to keep warm air circulating evenly during winter months and also for the gentle breeze it creates during hot summer months.

Let Pilosi Electric upgrade your home/office with a new ceiling fan!

Bath Fans

A properly vented bath fan can extend the life of your roof and eliminate moisture in your bathroom.

Many pre-existing bath fans were vented directly into the attic. This can cause problems down the road in many ways. Pilosi Electric can verify the fan is properly vented. Newer bath fans are very efficient and quiet; we recommend a high quality fan such as a Panasonic or Broan.

This is a good project to have done before cold weather hits and you are no longer able to keep that window cracked open.

Call Pilosi Electric so we can install an efficient bath fan for you and your family.

  • Bathroom Fans


Smoke/Carb Detectors

Pilosi Electric installs both hard wired and battery operated smoke detectors.

Hard wired smoke detectors go off at the same time, alerting everyone at the same time if there is a fire threat. They also come with back-up batteries in case of power failure.

Smoke detectors should be installed on every level including outside rooms where people sleep. Smoke alarms should be replaced with new units every 8-10 years.

Take a survey of your home or business and if you need smoke detectors installed, give us a call.

Hot Tub Installation

Pilosi Electric has experience with hot tub installations.

It would be our pleasure to provide this service so you can relax and enjoy your hot tub knowing the installation is done correctly and safely. We determine if your electric panel can accommodate your hot tub. We use PVC electrical conduit and fittings and determine the correct wire size and type for your hot tub. .

Home Wiring Upgrade

Questions to determine when to upgrade wiring in your home:

How old is your house and what kind of wiring does it have?
Do you have sufficient power for your electrical needs?
What are your possible future electrical needs?
Have you seen any warning signs of electrical fire hazards?
Do you have breakers that trip or fuses that blow repeatedly?
Do you have two-prong ungrounded outlets throughout the house?
No ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets in kitchens, baths, and other areas exposed to moisture?

With a little upfront planning you can minimize disruptions and even turn the job into an opportunity to add features to increase the value of your home.

We at Pilosi Electric would look forward to working with you if you choose to do a wiring upgrade for your home.

  • Our 200 amp upgrade went very smoothly. Crew worked at break-neck speed throughout the day and were even able to install additional run from new box for new microwave. My wife and I were extremely satisfied with their work and dedication to getting job done right the first time. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking for electrical work and will probably have you back for future work. Fantastic job! Martha & Dave Lynch

  • We had Chris and his team install ceiling fans as well as can lights in our home. We love our new ceiling fans and use them all the time; summer for cooling and winter to keep heat even throughout the house. The can lights give us the atmosphere were are looking for, whether bright when doing a project or dim when watching a movie. We would have him back in a second and have already recommended him to friends.

    Bill & Malissa Malicoat - Home Owner-ceiling fan & can lights-June 2014
  • Incredibly Professional Service. Our wiring rats nest became a beautiful work of art, so much so that I should have had a clear distribution box cover installed so I could show off your work!

    P. Pizzutelli - Homeowner-service upgrade-December 2015
  • We have used Pilosi Electric several times and have been extremely happy with the work of Chris and his team. They show up in a timely fashion, make great suggestions and stand by their work 100%. We needed a new vent fan for our kitchen. The fan worked well for about a year and a half and then stopped working. Chris came right over, trouble shot the problem, replaced the fan and fixed the issues that led to the failure of the first fan. Chris was at our house twice for a number of hours. There was no change for either the replacement fan or the new installation. Cannot imagine that any company could have done better. Chris also installed ceiling fans and replaced outdated wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We highly recommend Pilosi Electric. We would not use anyone else.
