New Construction Electrical

When building a new home, the last thing you want to worry about is having an electrical issue when moving into your new construction house. Hiring the right new construction electrical company can go a long way to ensure everything is up to code and ready to go when your home is finally complete. While it’s easy to assume everything will go according to plan when choosing any local electrician for the job, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. With more than 17 years of industry experience as an electrical company, King Electric,LLC is the best option for homeowners building their new dream home. Keep reading to learn about electrics to plan for when building a new home. 

Three considerations for new construction electrical work

1. Determine locations for electrical outlets 

If you’ve ever visited a home that lacked outlets, you know firsthand how frustrating this can be. The good news is that when you are building a new construction home, you get to decide on all the locations you need and want outlets for your home. Since you are starting fresh, this can be an excellent time to think about all the functional or useful places you will need to plug something in. If this is your first new home build, or you have no idea where to start, this can be a good time to bring in a master electrician for a consultation. With years of experience, electricians can be a great resource for helping you determine the best locations for outlets in your home. 

2. Consider energy-efficient solutions

With electricity costs on the rise in recent years, energy efficiency is something that you should consider for your new home. Since your new home is essentially a blank canvas, this can be a wonderful time to set yourself up for less expensive electrical bills in the future by considering energy-efficient options. Your electrician should be well-versed in the latest innovations for creating an energy-efficient home, which already gets you one step closer to moving into your dream home. 

3. Determine if any customized light switches are needed 

One of the best parts about building a new home is customizing it to your specifications to create a more functional home for your family. Included with customizations are specialty light switches. For example, if you want to add LED-based control panels or install USB ports into your outlets or switches, this can be done with an electrician’s help. Since many of these components are already completed on older homes, building a new home allows you to make sure that all these components are to your liking from day one of your move-in.
