Breaker Panel Upgrades and Meter Change Out
Circuit breakers and panel boxes are the heart of your single phase and three phase electrical system. If your circuit breakers are not functioning properly you and your family may be in danger. G & T Electric, Licensed Electrician will make all necessary changes to your breaker panel box and professionally upgrade your electrical service meter and grounding if necessary.
Breaker panel upgrades can prevent unwanted downtime and overloads, which can be very dangerous. Most of the time, upgrades are more cost-effective than replacing your existing equipment. Our know-how ensures that we can perform top quality repairs, modifications, rebuilding and maintenance on most circuit breakers and larger frame molded case breakers of all brands and vintages.
A breaker panel upgrade is just what it implies. It is an upgrade from the existing electrical panel. With all of the new appliances and technical devices we now have in our Dade & Broward homes and businesses, we find that older panels might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. As a result, service change is required. This includes not only an upgrade in your electric panel, but an upgrade in your meter socket, wire size between the meter and panel, and the outside grounding system. We handle it all.
A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. At times, a breaker may overheat to the point that the “busbar” in a panel gets burnt out. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.

Electrical Surge Protection
Surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout your homes electrical system, which can cause serious damages and unwanted expenses. Without surge protection, your valuable electronics are vulnerable.
Some surges come from within your own home, such as turning on a dryer or sending a document to your printer. Other surges come from outside your home, as in electric utility switching, downed power poles, cut power lines and lightning strikes. Surge can even enter through cable televisions and telephone wiring.
For example, if lightning struck a Miami or Ft Lauderdale home or business; or somewhere around it, a surge may go through the electrical system and anything that is plugged in or connected may get fried, whether it is turned on or off. Homeowners and business owners end up having to pay out of pocket to replace these appliances and equipment.
Most Miami, Coral Gables, Pinecrest & Palmetto Bay homes and businesses have some type of expensive electronic equipment in it. For example, kitchen appliances, home theater, computers and more, which are vulnerable to power surges. These items can be protected with a surge protector. Additionally, entertainment equipment and computers can be protected with a surge bar. Some of these affordable surge protectors come with a lifetime warranty and cover the appliances.

Electrical Generator Installation
Home generators are designed to provide electricity in times of power shortages or malfunctions. Home standby generators not only light up the house in case of power outages but also, depending on their capacity, provide power to run appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, television and heaters.
Stationery home generators require the service of a professional or a Licensed Electrical Contractor for installation. The generators are connected to the home wiring system through a manual or automatic transfer switch. Stationery generators come with an automatic power monitoring system. As soon as there is disruption in power, the generator automatically starts to provide power and switches off automatically after normal power is restored.
Power failures for whatever reason; whether it is a mechanical problem, stormy weather or other causes, they can leave your family or tenants in the dark. If you run a home businessthat relies on or uses electric power, it may be interrupted.
If you want to ensure that your living and working environment is safe and legal, your electrical equipment needs to be brought up to code.
The outages of power can greatly disrupt or even stop your home-based business. This problem can be eliminated by the installation of a standby generator.A standby generator is professionally installed so that it starts automatically once you lose electrical power and shuts down automatically when the normal electric current flow resumes. As a result, you will avoid experiencing power blackouts, whether there is electricity supply disruption or not. In other words, you will always be assured of the continuous supply of power all times of the day and night.
All of us would like to keep our power bills to a minimum so why not make it happen. When your rooms or offices are not in use, turn the lights off. Check your timers for the proper time and settings. Set your computer sleep mode settings to best fit your needs. In your office warehouse, replace those costly HID high bay lighting fixtures with energy efficient fluorescent high bay fixtures and install occupancy sensors in the offices, warehouse and bathrooms. These are only a sampling of ways to save and become more energy efficient.
