Panel upgrades are a great way to add convenience and safety to the wiring in your home.
Old-fashioned fuse panels don’t meet the same safety standards as modern circuit breaker panels, making them more susceptible to circuit overloads and electrical fires if improperly maintained. In the last 50 years, the way we live in and use our houses have changed substantially, requiring more of your old, tired panel. Today’s panels, on the other hand, are built to support the technology in your home.
Lighting adds safety, character, and ambience to your home. Typically, work areas require stronger, uniform lighting, while resting areas (such as living rooms and bedrooms) often look best with multiple, smaller lights.
Kraun Electric specializes in a variety of lighting systems, and can help you install the perfect fixtures for each area of your home.
Whatever you want to achieve with your lighting fixtures, our electricians can accomplish it. Simply contact us, and we’ll work with you to find the right solution.
Most residential electrical systems have copper wiring. However, some systems still have aluminum wiring installed. While properly-installed and maintained aluminum wiring isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, there are clear differences between aluminum and copper wiring:
If your home still has aluminum wiring, you have lots of options! While the absolute best option is to rewire the home with copper wiring, you can choose to have repairs or updates made instead. In certain circumstances, we can use a cost-efficient method commonly known as pig-tailing to correct the aluminum wiring. Regardless of your preferred method, we can help. Get in touch with us, and we’ll help you determine the best solution for your home.
Knob & Tube Wiring
From the 1880s to the 1930s, people relied on knob and tube wiring to bring electricity into their homes. Now, homes need greater electrical capacity, which isn’t possible with an outdated system.
Unfortunately, knob and tube wiring just doesn’t meet safety standards anymore. Installing knob and tube wiring didn’t include safety grounding, which creates a risk of electrical shock and fire. Most insurance companies won’t provide coverage for homes with knob and tube wiring, not without fully rewiring your home.
If your home has knob and tube wiring, it’s wise to consider updating your home’s electrical system. The benefits are undeniable, especially when it comes to safety:
Each home is unique, so we assess each job on an individual basis. If you’re ready to improve your home’s electrical safety, contact us! As a licensed electrical contractor, we can help you update your home with new and improved safety standards.
Smart Home technology – it’s not as complicated as you think! New technology and product improvements have made turning your home into a smart environment easier than ever.
What is a Smart Home?
Home automation (or smart home) refers to a system in which devices are connected to your home network. It gives homeowners the ability to control lighting, heating and air conditioning, security systems, door locks, window shades and more, from an app on their electronic device.
Why Should I Consider Smart Home Products?
Automating devices in your home increase convenience and can save time and electricity. For example, installing a simple occupancy sensor in your laundry room means you don’t have to fumble for the light switch while carrying a heavy load of laundry. Pair a motorized window shade and overhead lights with a home assistant, like Amazon’s Alexa, and simply say “Good Morning, Alexa” to have the shades raise and the lights come on. The possibilities are truly endless and completely customizable to your needs.

“I needed the old knob and tube replaced in my home and I’m glad I gave Kraun Electric a call. Being in the construction business myself I knew what I was looking for and these guys exceeded my expectations. They were on time, their estimate was clear and accurate and the workmanship by Brandon was excellent. They were professional to deal with, cleaned up after themselves, and honestly, I couldn’t have expected more. I would highly recommend Kraun Electric for any of your electrical needs.”
