Service Entrance & Meter Box Installations, Repairs, And Upgrades
When your South Florida electrical service is not functioning properly or showing signs of overload, you may need to increase the amount of power coming into the property.
The service entrance and meter box is where the lines from the city power supply access your property to provide your power source. Many South Florida homes or businesses that were built more than 30 years ago have electrical systems that were not built to handle today’s electrical needs. In these cases an electric service upgrade is not only desirable but a safety necessity. An outdated home electrical system attempting to handle modern electricity needs may struggle with flickering lights, tripping breakers, too few outlets and also can be dangerous. Electrical fires account for almost half of the home fires in the United States in any given year resulting in major property damage and countless lost lives.
When meter boxes start to fail it can cause flickering lights when there are high load situations in different areas of a home or business. The flickering may only happen at times that there is heavy electrical usage and will subside when the load is reduced and the connection cools. If you notice any flickering that occurs over more than one circuit, call your utility company to inspect the meter socket and the wiring from the street to your meter. You can also turn off the breaker for the room where you notice the flickering and then check other rooms for similar problems. Electrical sockets on the same breaker can remain powered even when the lights flicker. If you find your meter box needs to be replaced Ampi Electric can recommend the correct meter box for your needs and handle the professional installation.

Whole House Surge Protection
Ever seen a lighting storm in South Florida? Of course you have! When lightning strikes on or close to a property it can cause an electrical surge that can destroy your expensive and valuable electronic devices. When people think surge protection they normally think of power strips that are sold at many box stores. But these are inadequate solutions for a more serious power surge. What you need is whole house surge protection.
Most homes today have upwards of $15,000 worth of electrical devices all of which are at risk in a surge. Surge protective devices (SPDs) can prevent damage to the appliances and electronic devices in your home or business when there is a temporary voltage spike. These spikes can affect your entire electrical, phone, network and cable system.
When surge protection is installed at the electrical panel, it helps protect all the devices in the home, including those that are not plugged into a surge plug strip. Also, many appliances including your HVAC system, refrigerator, washer/dryer and stove cannot connect to a power strip and needs SPD’s to protect them. If you are looking to protect your South Florida residential or commercial property from the effects of power surges, Ampi Electric is here to provide you with the right whole house surge protection solutions for your property today.
Electrical Safety Inspections
Finding and resolving potential hazards or weak links in your electrical circuits before they cause problems is essential for the safety of your home or business.
By doing a thorough Electrical Safety Inspection of electrical components — appliances, wiring, and safety equipment such as fire and carbon monoxide alarms — prevents many electrical and fire incidents and guarantees that your home or business:
- Meets building and safety code regulations.
- Is protected from poor workmanship or negligence by previous owners.
- Is safe from electrical fires and other hazards
With over 20 years of experience in South Florida Electrical Safety Inspections, Ampi Electric, Inc is the licensed and bonded South Florida electrical contractor you need to call when it is time for your electrical safety inspections.
According to a 2009 study by the National Fire Prevention Association, faulty wiring is the leading cause of residential fires. The older your home is the greater chance that this becomes an issue. At issue is not necessarily the age of your wiring but whether or not the wiring is up to code. If you have an older property in South Florida and have not had the electrical wiring looked at recently, it is worth the cost of an wiring inspection to determine if you are in need of wiring upgrades or wiring replacement before disaster happens.
Just because the lights come on when you flip the switch, the TV works, and A/C is running doesn’t mean that the electrical wiring in your home or business is necessarily in good condition. There may be times, especially if your property is more than 40 years old, when you need to upgrade electrical wiring for safety purposes or because the existing wiring no longer meets your power needs.
Without a proper review of your electrical situation it can be difficult to determine if a wiring upgrade is needed. Many insurers will either not insure a property or charge much higher premiums without a wiring upgrade on older properties. And while rewiring can be a tough and expensive job, with some upfront planning you can minimize disruptions to your South Florida home or business and even turn it into an opportunity to add features that will increase the value of your property.
CO Detectors And Smoke Detectors
There are numerous deaths in homes each year as a result of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. With regularly inspected and professionally installed smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors, you can prevent a tragedy like this from happening in your South Florida home or place of business. The average life expectancy of a smoke detector is 8-10 years. If you have not changed your smoke detector in over 10 years or have purchased a home with older smoke detectors then you should look to have them replaced.
Properly installed and positioned smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors prevent countless deaths and injuries yearly. For maximum benefit, having them professionally installed and correctly placed is crucial to ensure they do their job in warning you of danger. Ampi Electric will identify the best areas to install your detectors and can perform the installations and periodic inspections to allow for maximum safety for you and your family.
Tankless Water Heaters Power Installations
Did you know that your home’s 2nd largest usage of energy is from your hot water heater? Traditional water heaters are an incredibly inefficient means for heating water. A 40-50 gallon tank is filled with water and uses energy 24/7 to keep the water warm. If two people take a shower at the same time, or if the washing machine or dishwasher is running while someone wants to take a bath, the hot water disappears quickly and will not return until the tank is full and reheated.
A tankless water heater generates hot water only when you need it—and for as long as you need it—saving up to 50 percent of fuel costs over tank heaters. And because there’s no tank, there’s almost no chance of a leak. Since their introduction in the 1990s, tankless heaters have become much more technologically advanced, with features like built-in recirculating pumps for instant hot water and wireless connections that tell you via smartphone when a unit needs maintenance.
A tankless water heater is economical, low maintenance and has a much longer life expectancy than tank heaters. Ampi Electric can work with you to advise for the proper location for your tankless water heater and handle all the power installation and setup to make sure your new heater is running properly and using the minimum amount of energy possible.
