Business & Home Office
We can add additional electrical outlets in your business or home office to support additional business equipment like computers, printers, scanners, monitors, shredders and more. If you need adequate wiring installed in a server room, we can do that too. Server rooms typically need additional capacity, so the wiring needs to be done properly to avoid overheating and/or overloading of the circuit. Many times, server rooms also require their own cooling mechanism that needs to run on a separate circuit.
Basements and Laundry Rooms
If you are adding or upgrading a laundry room in your basement, one of our Sterling Hts electricians can install the appropriate 220 volt outlets (now commonly known as 240 volt circuits). There are special safety requirements when installing these types of outlets, so it is imperative that you have an experienced electrician preform the task. Only one 220 outlet is allowed per breaker. These outlets are typically used for electric dryers, ranges or ovens. Some larger air conditioners and refrigerators might also require this large voltage power receptacle. In addition to basement laundry rooms, we also wire media rooms, home theaters and other basement entertainment areas. Whether you need to watch movies, play video games or just want high quality audio in your home, we can help.
Kitchen & Bath
Kitchens and baths have special requirements when it comes to electrical wiring. Many kitchen appliances have higher voltage requirements. All kitchen and bath outlets should be run with wiring that has ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI). GFCI is a rapid breaker designed to shut off electric power in the event of a ground fault. This special breaker will trip if the fault occurs for as little as 1/40th of a second. GFCI helps prevent electrocution by determining that the voltage may be traveling through a person. Moisture increases the risk for electrocution, so areas where water are present (such as kitchens and baths) should be fitted with GFCI receptacles. In some instances, not every outlet requires a GFCI device. Depending upon how the kitchen or bath is wired, you may only need a single GFCI outlet placed in the first position of the series. Either way, you should utilize a professional electrician to properly install these outlets. In addition, some kitchens and bath require 240 volt outlets for things like an electric range or a commercial refrigerator. These also have special wiring requirements and should only be installed by an experienced electrician. Some other common kitchen and bath wiring and repairs that can be handled by electrician Sterling Hts include range hoods, under-counter lighting, over-cabinet lighting, dishwashers and garbage disposers. Sterling Heights Electric has experienced and professional staff that will do the job right and keep you safe.
The garage area can require some special electrical configurations. If you need things like an automotive electric air compressor, an electric welder or an electric vehicle charging station, these require special 220/240 volt circuits. We can properly install these devices so they are safe and function properly. Don't trust an amateur to install the wiring for your expensive and sensitive equipment. Use Sterling Heights Electric and you can rest assured that we will get the job done right.

Rebates from the Electric Company
For many years now, our electricians in Sterling Heights MI have been assisting businesses and consumers to get rebates for helping reduce their utilization footprint. Each year, electric companies offer incentives to businesses to reduce the amount of electricity they use. Some common rebates that have been provided for the following upgrades:
For those that want or need a highly reliable electric supply, we offer whole-house generators on the residential side or larger commercial generators for commercial and industrial customers.
For residential customers, these generators do much more than a small gasoline powered generator that may supply power to an handful of electronics. These whole-house generators will power your entire home including such things as: the refrigerator, clothes washer and dryer, dishwasher, sump pump and well pump. Be prepared for the severe weather and have peace of mind during the winter months. No longer will you need to worry about a two-day power outage in the middle of winter that could cause your heat to go out and allow your pipes to freeze.
If you own a business, you can't afford to go days without power. Do you recall the huge power outage years ago that affected a large portion of the northern and eastern USA for several days? During that time, nearly every gas station was closed since there was no electric to run the pumps. Only a handful of stations were open and they had lines of cars with police escorted tanker trucks. Some of these locations did as much business in one day as the would normally do in month. You may be wondering how they stayed open - it's because they had a commercial generator.

Commercial Energy Savings and Audits
Many of our region energy providers like Consumers Energy and Semco are offing rebates when you upgrade your equipment. The amount vary from year to year and from project to project, but if you have some inefficient equipment, you're likely eligible. Recently, we had a restaurant customer that received enough rebate that his out of pocket costs to replace all of his restaurant lighting and install walk-in cooler curtains was $0. The rebate covered the entire job. After the installation, his electric bill on 1100 square feet of space dropped over $100 per month. That was a no-brainer.
