Do you trip a circuit breaker each morning when you make your coffee and toast? If tripping circuit breakers is a frequent occurrence in your home, your appliances may not be connected to dedicated circuits.
The National Electrical Code requires dedicated circuits for major electrical appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, and electric water heaters because they ensure that appliances can operate safely without overloading the home’s electrical system.
Appliances without a dedicated circuit may draw more current than the circuit can handle, tripping breakers, blowing fuses, and overheating wire insulation causing breakdown and the possibility of electrical fires.
A dedicated circuit’s wiring is just as important as having a functional circuit breaker. Appliances that are wired to a dedicated circuit with incorrect wire size and insufficient amperage for their needs may overheat, possibly resulting in a fire.
The National Electrical Code requires that every large appliance be served by a separate, dedicated circuit, not shared with any other appliance. Breakers that are constantly tripping are a good indication of appliances in need of a dedicated circuit. If it has a motor, it typically requires its own circuit. Unsure? Contact a Skylight Electrical Service professional for help.

Do you know how to properly calculate wattage so that your system isn’t overloaded at startup? This varies depending on the equipment you need to power and the manufacturer of your generator. Our professionals have the skills necessary to calculate power needs for a smooth operation.
A professional electrician can safely set up wiring, plugging your generator into the transfer switch and wiring it directly to your business’s service panel. This disconnects you properly from the grid and ensures the safe delivery of power only to designated circuits, preventing the overloading of your generator, backfeeding, fire, and other safety issues. Proper positioning and installation of your portable generator are also essential in preventing carbon monoxide poisoning.
To keep productivity and electricity flowing with a power generator, contact Skylight Electrical Service today. Our professionals can install the perfect commercial generator to meet all your emergency power needs, getting you back to business as usual.

The average life-span of a building today is around 30 years. Frequently, when a building is updated and renovated, the electrical wiring remains the same. This means that many businesses are operating with insufficient electrical support for their modern electrical appliances. The steady increase of consumer electronic use and energy consumption means that these electrical systems could become easily overloaded.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, fires and explosions accounted for 3% of workplace fatalities in 2007. Fortunately, many of the dangers associated with older electrical systems can be prevented simply by upgrading the electrical panel.
Upgrading the electrical panel helps to ensure that your electrical system is equipped to meet your energy needs and protect your employees and property. If you work in an aging building, Skylight Electrical Service can inspect your building’s electrical wiring and distribution system to determine exactly what your electrical service panel needs are. Upgrading or replacing important components can help prevent electrical emergencies before they occur. Call Skylight Electrical Service today to upgrade or replace your electric panel today!

Electrical circuit overloads happen when more amperage is transferred across an electrical wire than the circuit can handle. For example, if you plug a laser printer into the same outlet as your computer tower, and the circuit doesn’t have enough amperage to support both devices, the circuit breaker will be tripped. A tripped circuit breaker cuts power to all devices using that circuit and brings productivity to a halt.
In order to avoid overloading your circuits and the possibility of electrical fires, outlets and wiring should be upgraded to have sufficient electrical capacity. Let the licensed professionals at Skylight Electrical Service update and install the right circuits in your home or business today.
