Electrical Panel Upgrades
Electricity is vital for our homes and it’s all managed by your circuit breaker. We have become more demanding of our circuit breakers, or Electrical Panels, throughout the years as we increase our in-home technologies, like computers, televisions, smart devices, etc. If you’re using an out-of-date circuit breaker, you may be noticing it struggling to keep up with this new demand. HWS Electric can help!
Most homes still operate with out-dated circuit breakers, and if this is your case, you’re most likely feeling the burden. If you notice flickering lights, popped breakers, and more, it’s probably time to make the switch and upgrade your Electrical Panel.
The benefits of upgrading your electrical panel include;
- Protection of expensive electronics, computers, and appliances from electrical surges.
- Prevention of possible data loss from your computers when electrical supply is interrupted.
- Avoid interruptions to your Internet connection, security systems, a/v equipment, and other communication devices.
- Minimize the risk of fire when your old breaker overloads.
- No longer having to avoid using multiple devices at the same time to avoid tripping a breaker.
- Update to the most current local safety codes.
After your panel upgrade, you’ll enjoy the freedom to run any device you please simultaneously without the fear of tripping breakers. Your home’s electric will have a new infrastructure that keeps you and all your electronic devices up and running. If you’re ready to begin upgrading your electrical panel, contact HWS Electric today!
Outlets & Receptacles
USB Outlets & Receptacles
At HWS Electric, we go above and beyond when it comes to delivering quality services that will last for many years to come. With technology on the rise, it’s pivotal that your home’s outlets and receptacles are ready to meet your every need. This means, installing outlets that not only meet safety standards, but can also easily charge devices without pesky blocks. At HWS Electric, we install USB outlets just for that reason.
By utilizing vertical USB ports within your receptacles you can save ample space and avoid using adapters. These ports provide two USB ports and two three-prong receptacles. Giving you more options, more room, and an easier way of addressing new technology.
GFCIs, or ground fault circuit interrupters, protect against the risk of electrical shock. Installing them provides an inexpensive solution to preventing incidents of shock, and offers the added bonus of bringing your home up to code.
GFCI outlets are used in areas like the kitchen, bathroom or garage where the risk of electrical shock is greater. They can be identified by the “test” and “reset” buttons located on the receptacle.
Where GFCIs are required;
- Bathrooms since 1975
- Kitchens since 1987
- Laundry and utility sinks since 2005
- Wetbars since 1993
- Garages since 1978
- Crawlspaces and unfinished basements since 1990
- Home exteriors since 1973
- Spa and pool areas since 1968
Many older homes lack GFCI outlets and can put their occupants at an increased risk of electrical shock. Don’t wait on installing these inexpensive, potentially life-saving devices. Contact HWS Electric and protect yourself and your family.

Matt and his team came highly recommended to my husband and me. Matt has been prompt and responsive since Day 1. Since then, we’ve had our meter moved outside, our electrical panel upgraded, and a tv mounted. The work was done as described (in terms of time, money and dealing with having the power temporarily shut off). Being new homeowners, Matt was awesome about answering questions and being really practical about what’s nice vs. necessary to have done.
