ELECTRICAL WIRING REPAIR, NEW INSTALLATION
RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL
When wiring a new home or addition adherence to strict electrical safety standards detailed attention to national and local building codes is a must.
Following the codes and standards reduces the risk of electrical fire from faulty wiring.
New installations and repairs involves several steps including the development of a wiring diagram showing the location of the breaker box and the paths of wires to each outlet and junction box. Pre-planning is a big part of our efforts to ensure safety and affordable solutions.
New wiring takes into consideration the quantity of outlets, switches, how many fixtures or appliances need to be installed along with how many circuits will be needed. Local code dictates distances and other specifications: Normally, 6’ between outlets, and 6 outlets per a 110-voltage circuit for living areas, and for kitchen areas, where appliances are in place that use more power, there may be as few as 2 per circuit.
Installation often requires drilling holes in studs to accommodate the wires between the walls.
If a new breaker box is required, it is important to choose the correct amperage. The size is determined by the needs of the space. Normally, 200 amps. Breaker boxes are installed where they can easily be accessed.
Certain appliances in the home require a 220-volt outlet. These include dryers, refrigerators, microwave ovens, ovens, and furnaces.
Other considerations for wiring new construction or additions include running wires and cables for televisions, internet service, or phone. If these services are not in place, prewiring for what may be required in the future is advised. This will save you from damaging or removing walls.

“The first time I met Nick, the owner of Greenway Electric, he was working in my neighbor’s house after Hurricane Sandy. I had connected a generator to my furnace to heat the house and was worried that I hadn’t done it right. Nick was happy to take a look and help me. Since then I’ve done extensive electrical work to 3 houses and have used Greenway every time. Nick is also well-versed in lighting design and can offer suggestions for lighting options. Their work is excellent, the technicians are polite and conscientious and their prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Greenway.” – Eileen K., Montclair, NJ
