You need to replace your electrical panel box, but before you hire an electrician, you want to know what the job entails. Is it a multi-day process? Will I be out of power for a few hours, all day, or a few days? Will I need a permit and do I file for it myself? These are all questions the team at Kasper Electrical will answer. In business for more than 40 years, the staff understands the importance of communication, and through discussions with clients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Palm Beach, Delray Beach, and the surrounding areas, they explain the process and answer any questions before the job begins.
Step 1: Finding the Right Electrical Company
The electrical panel receives the incoming electric from the electric company and distributes it throughout the circuits in the home. That’s why it’s important to have only licensed and insured professionals work on replacing an electrical panel. Kasper Electrical suggests getting three estimates for this project. Ask the right questions to determine if that company is the one for the job. Some questions you may want to ask are: Are you licensed and insured? Have you replaced electrical panels before? How long does the job take? Do you file for the permits and pick them up? Is this a one-man job or more? When can you start? And finally, what is the cost? Once you’ve gathered the three estimates, you can compare them side by side and determine which company will work best for you. Kasper Electrical believes in safety first and customer satisfaction on every job.
Step 2: Documentation and Proper Permits
Kasper Electrical takes care of every step, from explaining the electrical panel replacement process to providing an estimate, filing for permits according to your building department’s guidelines, and picking up the permits. Kasper Electrical follows a process to make sure every job is done correctly from the beginning. During the panel replacement process, the homeowner will be required to bring the smoke detectors and GFI devices up to code. Customers in Palm Beach County, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and the surrounding areas choose Kasper Electrical for their reliable, consistent customer service.
Step 3: Disconnect Electrical Service to the Home
Before any work can begin, the staff at Kasper Electrical will ask for the last 5 digits of the client’s FPL account number and meter numbers, so an appointment can be made to disconnect power to the home. Customer and staff safety is always a priority. An appointment for reconnection will also be made, at that time.
Step 4: Prepare to Lose Power for the Day
Replacing an electrical panel isn’t a small job and requires time to do it properly. Clients in Jupiter, Palm Beach, Palm Beach County, Delray Beach, and the surrounding areas will be without power through the replacement process, which will take a few hours. Please plan accordingly.
Step 5: Inspection Day and Reconnection
When the work is done, an inspection is required. Once the county inspector approves the work and inspection is passed, FPL will reconnect the power. The electricians at Kasper Electrical will confirm power is coming into your home properly. For the last step of the process, the electrician will label your newly replaced electrical panel.
