Your Safety is Our Top Priority

(973) 743-4040



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.

I recently embarked upon the project of looking to find an electrician to remove Knob and Tube Wiring from my circa-1896 home. Of the four estimates I received Greenway’s was by far the most comprehensive and detailed. Nick, the owner, spent a good deal of time examining the existing wiring and within a day had an estimate to me. We went with Greenway, and were delighted we did. The crew were prompt, efficient, polite, hard working, and conscientious. They did an outstanding job making the holes in the walls as small as possible and performing the comprehensive job in an efficient manner. The job Greenway did removing Knob and Tube Wiring was approved by the Town Inspector without a hitch. I highly recommend Greenway to anyone looking for a quality electrician. Nick is a consummate professional, delivering high quality work to his customers.

We recently bought a house in Montclair and it had knob & tube wiring. We got a few estimates from different contractors but Greenways was the most detailed one . No surprises and while Greenway was there we added additional work, the prices for the additional work were fair since the crew was already there. Very nice workers, clean, neat and the holes they made were very small which brought the price of the painters down. The project manager Lazi was rigor to make sure we finished the job by the deadline so we wouldn’t fall behind with the other contractor that needed to come back after Greenway was done. Passed all inspections without any problems and we are glad we went with them. Nowadays it is very hard to find reliable contractors. I would recommend Greenway to all my friends and family.

“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
