Out With The Old

Having an electrical retro-fit done to your building or property is a way to update older systems without having to do an extensive and expensive replacement job. Instead of tearing out everything that is installed, going with a retro-fit is often the better choice. It reduces the impact of our team on the work of the business or tenants, and reduces the upfront bill for you. Often, a retro-fit can nearly match the capabilities of a full replacement, but at a fraction of the capital cost.

How We Do It

We start by carefully inspecting and mapping out your existing electrical system. We’ll take note of what is outdated, and we’ll take note of the loads and demands that are being placed on the system. We can then provide you with a quote for the process, as well as a schedule estimate. Once we get started, our professional technicians replace your outdated wiring and fixtures.

Meet The Industry Expert

“When we do a retro-fit project, combining the old technology and the new helps us build on what is there. This means we don’t have to be as invasive, and we can keep out of the way of the tenants and workers. ”

– Mike Melvin, Construction Manager, South Coast Electrical

Retrofitting for Safety

An outdated electrical system can cause serious problems, and could even be dangerous. Modern equipment may be placing a bigger load on your wiring and fixtures than equipment did in the past. This load could be stressing your old system, increasing the risk of overheating. Overheating can cause severe damage, even leading to fire, so retrofitting your system can improve the safety for you and your tenants. Sometimes, new code requirements or new insurance guidelines may necessitate retrofitting.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

One of the main reasons to retro-fit your building is the energy savings you’ll see. Fixtures and wiring has advanced quite a bit over the years, so your old electrical is no longer at the peak of performance. In plumbing, you can see a leak – but it’s not as easy when it comes to electrical systems. Retrofitting will allow you to plug that slow leak of energy, trimming utility bills.
