I need an estimate on electrical work for the installation of an 18 inch dishwasher. It only needs a regular voltage plug to run. There is an outlet above the backsplash (about a meter or 2 away) where you can retrieve power. There are no cabinets in the way as they will be torn down.
Please provide an estimate, thank you.
-We believe our panel has sufficient space for the extra load and will not need to be upgraded. We need to run the wiring from the panel room, out to the side of the house, along the house about 50 feet to where the pool will be.
- Service to the swim spa must be dedicated 240V, 50A 3 wire plus ground (#6
AWG copper with minimum #8 AWG copper ground).
- The swim spa must be hooked up to a “dedicated” 240
volt, 50 amp breaker and GFCI.
- The pool being hooked up is a 15 foot H2X by Master Spa
I'm thinking of getting some electrical work done in the near-future for my house. It's a small townhouse, around 1200-1400 sqft with 2 floors and a basement built around 40-50 years ago. One of the main things I want to do is upgrade the current fuse box to a bigger circuit breaker box.
There are also a few changes I want to make to some of the wiring. The previous owners had switched the living room and kitchen, but didn't setup the kitchen circuit with a high enough current to properly support multiple kitchen appliances. There's a light in one of our hallways that doesn't seem to turn on. And there's another light at the staircase with a light switch on both the first and second floors, but it's not a 3-way switch.
I want to see approximately how much to budget for something like this. Depending on costs, the priority is the kitchen wiring followed by the circuit breaker.
Lights started to flicker and dim. Heating elements on stove not working although stove lights are on. Thermostat is on but heat pump does not turn on. Some circuits have very low power in them, while other circuits are OK. No issues with power being supplied to our condo building according to Toronto Hydro.
Please provide a price for the following.
We can provide drawings for the project but we are looking at a fast start on Thursday January 2, 2014 and need a good crew. We will send reflected ceiling plan for the electrical new vs old and what is to be replaced and re-wired.
The kitchen area walls and ceilings are being gutted and opened up to the back of the house ie. Living room and skylight hallway and extend the cathedral ceiling from the front breakfast area to the skylight hallway. This entire area will need requiring.
The existing baseboard heaters will be replaced with new as noted on drawings. A heat/loss drawing and calculations will need to be prepared (engineer) to determine what size of baseboard heaters and how to determine the efficiency of the existing furnace and slab on grade ducting at parts of the kitchen, skylight hallway, living room and 2 bedrooms, and entry hall vs the baseboards in breakfast, dining room, master bath and master bedroom.
The existing 200 amp panel is located in the kitchen at the south wall, where the existing mast is located. But it's also in the future pantry cabinetry. One idea is to create a sub-panel in the water meter closet near the front entrance and leave some of the existing circuits in the current location.

There are two components to what we need done.
1) We have 3 outdoor receptacles that are old and need replacing. One of them had the wires cut where the wires meet the receptacle.
2) We recently replaced a ceiling fan with a light fixture from Ikea in my son's room. Afterwards, we could not get the light switch to work. An electrician doing work on something unrelated, fixed this, but now four receptacles in the same and bathroom next door don't work and the pot lights in the bathroom keep blowing out. We have checked all GFIs and the fusebox with no luck finding out why this happened. The electrician we used won't come back to look at it.
house is about 50 yrs old.
need breaker panel (currently fuses)
need capping of various junction boxes in attic and few in crawl space (there are pot lights installed throughout the house)
need to move exterior outlet from immediate vicinity of gas meter
issue with faucet/sink in laundy area; faucet was taped when moved into the house, don't know problem.
issue with kitchen sink... appears that there is no 'trap' and therefore odor is constantly present.
Add power outlet to cupboard safely for power to the over the range microwave oven. The power line is already there that was installed for the exhaust fan. I want safe and quality three prong outlet put in cupboard.
The house is 6-7 years old.
Reinstall new pot light fixture for basement. Current potlights fixtures are MR16 50 W power, recessed with no insulation around the fixture.
8 lights in basement to change. in 200-400 square foot area.
I would prefer to somehow use less heat dissapating GU10 or MR16 LED bulbs. I am not having any problems with current lighting fixtures . I do not like the heat generated by halogen lights and I am worried about if the current fixtures will allow use of MR16 led bulbs or if they can be changed to GU10 connector type.
I am just currently trying to see what the options are for making changes to the lighting in the basement .
I have some minor electrical jobs to be done at my residence.
1) An electrical outlet installed on the exterior of the house (front yard facing).
2) A light to be installed in my backyard on the deck, I have one light available the same wire can be pulled for the second light, so that one electrical outlet that is available on the inside can control both the lights.
3) A sensor light that is installed at the side of my house, keeps going on/off (maybe the light isn'f fixed right, or the wiring is loose) -- needs to be looked at.
4) A light to be installed in the basement store room.
I am looking for a electrician to service 2 sensor lights on the left exteriro walls of my home. I have a walkout basement and the
lights are placed at the top and bottom of the stairs which does not work. The 1st set of lights does not come on and the 2nd
set of lights keep going on and off when switched on. Both set of lights are controlled by 1 switch in the panel box.
I need to get an estimate how much it would cost to service it for the lights to work properly,.
I will like to get an electrician to install 2 light bulbs on the exterior walls of my home. One bulb will be placed on the top of the staircase
and the second bulb will be placed somewhere in the middle of the exterior wall. The wiring for both bulbs will connect to 1 switch which will be placed on the inside wall on the front of my home. I will like to get an estimate how much it will cost.
Main 100A breaker recently started tripping after the dryer has been on for a few minutes. Main breaker is warm to touch after tripping. The dryer is connected to its own fuse box that is unaffected--only the main breaker trips so I believe the problem may be with the main breaker/connections, not the dryer itself.
Panel is at least 15 year old Commander model using white breakers with black switches. Main breaker is 100A.
