Replace and upgrade breaker box to a 200-amp, 40-opening ITE panel board and needed breakers.
Also installed 1 bonding wire for the hot, cold, and gas pipes located at the hot water tank. The crew arrived promptly at 8am, including Marty, the owner. He and 2-3 electricians worked on pulling the 200 amp service into the meter, while another crew of 2 worked on breaker box in the garage. It was 60, but rainy and windy, miserable working on the outside but at least the 200 amp service was in place no trenching required. The crew pulled an extension line into my crawl space to keep my sump running, which was one of my concerns. Before Marty left around 2pm, he went over the work outside which would require inspection by my village and Com Ed. The remaining crew (2-3) worked on the panel box, and tested each line. We went over the breaker numbering so I could update my detailed reference sheet. Since this has to be inspected, the walls were left open. Dry wall patching is owner's responsibility, not a big deal. They left the area clean and vacuumed up the dry wall debris before they left at 4pm. Second time I used them; first was for fan installation and correction of 3 way switch issues, which really were issues at the panel. This lead to replacing an aging (40 year old) panel that clearly was turning into a risk. I've had this on my to do for a while and glad it's done. I'd recommend this firm to anyone in the western suburbs; crew was polite, professional, and efficient.
Re wire, lights, found buried box, outdoor lights. Great.
Installed sensor for outdoor lights so they will turn on automatically in low-light situations; installed overhead light; adjusted a few outlets; gave estimate and advice on whole-house surge protector. We have used Alternating Currents multiple times now, and they are always prompt, professional, fair in price, and do excellent work. We couldn't be more pleased.
Alternating Currents did an excellent job. They completed the work in an organized, professional manner, keeping us in the loop every step of the way to ensure the work would meet our satisfaction. They were able to meet schedule constrains and were very careful not to cause damage in our home. There were some issues due to the existing components of the home. They were helpful in coming up with solutions to the issues, and their owner, Marty, was very knowledgeable and a great resource.
Their electrician was great. Honest and able to explain what's-what in laymen's terms. Highly recommend.
