Our electricians - FAQ

How do I know I need an electrical panel upgrade?

Some signs you might need an electrical panel upgrade are frequent circuit breaker trips, dimming or flickering lights, outdated fuse boxes, and reliance on extension cords. Contact our 24-hour electrician service to assess you.

What distinguishes a circuit breaker from a fuse box?

Circuit breakers and fuse boxes protect your electrical system. A circuit breaker is a switch that trips during an overload while a fuse melts, requiring replacement. Our 24-hour electricians can help you understand which system suits your needs and execute installations or upgrades.

What are the average electrical panel upgrade and electrical sub-panel installation costs?

An electrical panel upgrade and electrical sub-panel installation cost will be based on house size and panel capacity. Whether you need to install a sub-panel, replace a sub-panel, or an electrical panel upgrade, contact our 24-hr electricians for an estimate tailored to your needs and learn about our financing plans.

What is the EV charging station installation timeframe?

An EV charging station installation time can vary, but our commercial and residential electricians go the extra mile to complete it efficiently, minimizing disruption. Reach out to our 24/7 electrician service for more details on the timeframe.

Is professional assistance necessary to install a sub-panel or an electrical sub-panel replacement?

Replacing an electrical sub-panel, as well as an electrical sub-panel installation, involves risks and complexities, so hiring a professional electrician is essential. Our licensed and skilled 24-hr electricians ensure safe and compliant electrical sub–panel installations or sub–panel replacement.

Are the residential electricians and commercial electricians at Gervais Mechanical licensed and insured, and are any 24-hr electricians available?

All our electricians and emergency electricians at Gervais Mechanical are fully licensed and insured. We prioritize safety and adherence to industry standards. Our 24/7 electricians are available and ready to install a sub-panel, replace a sub-panel, or for an electrical panel upgrade all year.

What is the difference between residential electricians and commercial electricians?

Residential electricians and commercial electricians primarily differ in the types of systems they work on, their training, and the variety of spaces they work on.

Commercial electricians usually work with electrical systems in properties such as offices, stores, malls, and other businesses and with higher voltage systems and larger equipment than residential electricians. Residential electricians work on electrical systems within homes, apartments, and other buildings. Their work typically involves installing, maintaining, and repairing standard home electrical systems and appliances.

At Gervais Mechanical, our 24-hr electricians are trained to attend commercial and residential services. Call us!
