By having data wiring installed, ongoing changes and upgrades are done more efficiently. This will reduce overall costs as well as the cabling bulk and congestion. When you have an organized and planned infrastructure, it allows for fewer wires running in all different directions. The reduced congestion improves airflow and decreases the changes for blocked airflow and crushed cables, which could result in electrical difficulty.

As many of us know, technology is always briskly changing. With the average lifespan of homes being 35 years or more, your house might not be as up-to-date as you may think. Modernizing your electrical panel could be a simple and painless way to prevent today’s appliances and gadgets from overloading and weighing down the electrical system of your older home.
Your electrical panel provides electricity to all of your well-used gadgets and appliances throughout your home and business. The service panel receives power from your utility company and distributes it to all your devices. Having an up-to-date and well-functioning panel is the key to having a safe business or home.
The electrical panel is the nucleus of your electrical system. Your panel dictates how much power is available for the circuits to allocate to the appliances, lights, and outlets throughout your home. Here are some danger signs that indicate your electrical panel needs to be updated:
- Your circuit breakers trip routinely
- Your lights dim when you turn on other instruments
- You have to use an extension cord or adapters to create additional electric outlets
If you need to have your electrical panel upgraded, contact Future Connections Electrical. Our fully licensed electricians and technicians are ready and able to upgrade your electrical panel. Safety standards change over time, so it’s important to ensure that your home is up-to-date.
There are three important benefits of upgrading your electrical panel:
- Future-proof your electrical system. An electrical panel upgrade gives you the options to add bigger and better appliances or an addition to your home requiring more outlets without the fear of overloading your panel or draining your electrical system.
- Better overall electrical performance. With an up-to-date panel, you will have a more consistent energy supply throughout your home.
- Better electrical safety. An overloaded panel can result in a major fire hazard and cost you thousands in repairs.
Losing power always comes at the most inconvenient time. You never know when a colossal storm will hit and take out your power or if your area will have a power shortage. At Future Connections, we understand the importance of having power all the time in both your home and business and will ensure that in the event of a power outage, your generator is capable of supplying a sufficient amount of energy to keep things up-and-running.
Standby generators offer a solution to long-lasting power outages. They provide uninterrupted backup power for days, unlike portable generators. Once the system detects that you have been disconnected from your utility grid, the generator starts up and transfers its power to the home’s electrical panel automatically. These generators can run on natural gas, liquid propane, or even diesel.
When municipal power resumes, the switch shuts down the generator and reconnects your house or business to the grid. You will never have to worry about dangerous weather affecting your power supply.
Currently, our lives revolve around being connected to power. When you think about a power outage, you may think the only consequence is the inconvenience of having to live without power for a few days. A blackout, however, can also result in costing you thousands in home repairs.
We will not leave you alone in the dark. We are very experienced in whole house generator maintenance and service, and we will make certain that your generator is in great working shape the next time a huge storm blows through.
The electrical power plant distributes electricity across the power grid, boosted along the way by transformers to a substation. When a breaker is in the “on” position in your circuit breaker box, electricity is flowing through the wires in your home to each appliance, fixture, and outlet. Some people may not know that appropriate permits need to be “pulled”, inspections need to be completed and the work needs to be approved by the local municipality’s electrical inspectors.
Our Raleigh residential and commercial electricians are experienced with many different circuit wiring services including installing electrical circuit panels/boxes, fuses and breakers, wall switches, hanging fixtures, and dimmers, outlets, GFCI outlets and arc-fault circuit interrupters, electrical car wiring and circuits, chandeliers and ceiling fans, dryer and store outlets and circuits, underground and damp wiring, LEd lighting, and more.
Please keep in mind, electrical wiring should only be done by experienced and well-versed electricians. Even if it seems like an effortless fix, faulty wiring can result in blown fuses, electrical damage, and house fires.
Whether you need a new light switch or an electrical panel, we would love to help you with all of your electrical needs. Even if you have experience taking on small electrical projects, it is recommended that you consult with a well-versed professional to remain safe and hazard-free.
As we are so connected to our phones, tablets, and devices, the proper home wiring is even more important than ever before. Make sure that you are properly connected by using a trusted electrical company that will get the job done right the first time.

Talk with your HOA today to learn how LED HOA lighting can enrich your community’s look and feel.
In a parking area, lighting is imperative for safety and security. It helps to prevent crime and enables people to feel safe in the area. If your parking area was created over 10 years ago, chances are that it’s outdated.
- A handful of fundamental lighting design questions to ask yourself would be:
- How bright is the light?
- How consistent is the lighting?
- How consistent is the lighting?
- Does the lighting render colors?
- Is the lighting system energy efficient?
- How long does the lighting last?
Severe weather, floods, and fires can impede your electrical service in serious and often harmful ways. Do not try to manage any of these situations on your own. Call for immediate assistance. If the storm took down prime power lines, your local electricity company is responsible for reconnecting those power lines, not you!
If you drive an electric car, you know the frustration of finding electric car charging stations around Raleigh and surrounding areas. You also understand the convenience of having an electric car charging station at your home. We specialize in installing charging stations at your home for your electric car and would love to be of help! We will examine your electrical panel and ensure the available power is there and accessible. We will make sure that your electrical panel can handle the electricity your new car charger demands. When it comes time to install your charger, we’ll install the required breaker and circuit as well as the car charger on the wall. When everything is finished, you can start charging whenever you wish.
Transfer switches are electrical switches that fluctuate the load between multiple sources of power. Most commonly, this is between city power and a generator for when the power goes out. In places where storms are frequent, many homes come equipt with permanent, built-in power generators. There are two types of service switches: automatic and manual.
An automatic switch will automatically switch to an alternate power source whereas a manual switch will require someone to switch to the alternate power source. A subpanel is a waypoint between the main panel and other circuits that are located further down the line.
We design and install commercial lighting, security systems, signage lighting, and provide expert electrical work on commercial office buildings, medical buildings, banks, military establishments, retail spaces, car dealerships, restaurants, and industrial buildings. Commercial up-fits can optimize and increase the functionality and overall aesthetics of your commercial space.
Our energy efficiency professionals will review your lighting and outlets, check the functionality of your thermostat, review your heating and cooling systems including the sealing of ductwork, review your appliances for age and efficiency, use thermal imaging to find hot spots, faulty wires, and other risk occurrences, and more. Energy efficiency is often overlooked and we would love to help clarify any question you may have.
If you begin hearing weird noises or the smell of burnt plastic around your main service panel, call a professional as soon as possible. Many older panels, no longer produced for the public due to safety issues, are still in use in older homes and could pose an enormous safety risk. Have us examine the panel and assess possible hot spots with modern technology. Replacing the main service panel is much less costly than replacing your entire home and as well as its contents.
By the use of thermal imaging, we can help you uncover and minimize the heat loss that comes from poor design, construction or insulation in your home or commercial building, which ends up costing you more on utility bills and in comfort than you may initially realize.
Thermal imaging can also serve as a preventative measure. It can help us find issues that could be dangerous to you and your home such as loose and overheating circuit connections, motor issues, and hot spots.
