Upgrade Existing Electrical Service

Did Thomas Edison wire your home?

  • Look at your electrical fuse box. If you still have fuses, most likely your electrical service it outdated. Gainsley Electric can replace that old fuse box with a new Siemens Load Center with new circuit breakers. We will replace everything from the outside in. We’ll install a new service riser (mast), meter box, service entrance, cable, make final connections to the DTE service drop, transfer all branch circuits to the new load center, properly label all circuits, properly ground the service to water pipes and supplemental grounding to ground rods, clean up and haul away all the old equipment.
  • We can also change your service from overhead to underground if you like. We can protect your sensitive electronic equipment with whole-house surge suppressors. Gainsley Electric’s twenty-plus years in the business has allow us to accumulate a large variety and quantity of used parts for all makes of older circuit breaker panels. Siemens warrants the load center for ten years and the circuit breakers for life. Gainsley Electric’s work is warranted for five years.
