Our new build electrical experts work with minimal disruption to other work being done concurrently on the home. Planning is a huge keyword here because if done improperly, the homeowner may face complications in the future in regards to efficiency, safety, and ease of maintenance. Here are some things to consider to ask yourself and your team of workers.
Depending on the size of your home, number of residents, and general appliance and electronic use, this will affect the breaker panel specs. The common amperage for modern homes these days is 200 amp, so that’s a good starting point, as modern appliances and tools require more electricity to power them.
For a standard modern home, it’s generally not advised to go lower than 200 amp, as you should account for the possibility of adding higher energy-using appliances and fixtures in the future.
- Where should the electrical outlets, panels and wiring be located?
This is something that is typically determined in the designing phase of the new construction electrical wiring and rough in, but you’ll need to have a general idea of what types of appliances will likely be used. For example, hot tub installations and EV charger stations require specific power from a source, but code may require a minimum distance between the breaker panel and the appliance. This is something our Milton electricians, who are ECRA/ESA certified, are highly knowledgeable about, so you can rest assured our work will be done according to code.
- Connectivity and HVAC considerations
Working with a new build electrician is great in the sense that you can plan things out efficiently to accommodate a variety of wiring and power needs. Things like phone cabling, internet, TV and the like should be planned out so you can minimize the chances of unsightly wiring in the oddest places. Heating, ventilation and cooling systems are also integrated with new construction electrical wiring, so should also be part of the discussion in the planning process.
