If your home or office building requires the ability to handle a heavier load of electricity, we can upgrade your electrical system. In Bethesda, DC and the surrounding suburbs, the heavy-up process involves the submission of plans and permit applications to the local government for approval and inspections.
All of our work adheres to National Electrical Code and to Pepco’s requirements. If your home or office building needs more power, call or email us and we will do a site survey and submit a detailed proposal.

I wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for us at both of our houses this past year. During a stressful time, you always arrived with solutions and returned again and again to address all the other emergencies and electrical surprises. Your talents and customer service are so appreciated by Kip and me and I just wanted to let you know how terrific it is knowing you are there to rely on. Your professionalism, candor and expertise make our lives better truly!
I wanted you to know that last night at the Finance Committee Meeting I complimented you and told everyone how fantastic you had been throughout our “water damage emergency”. You really were super and your loyalty, support and guidance meant a great deal to me. St. Paul’s Rock Creek Parish is lucky to have you as our electrician.
Thank you! You were fast, professional, courteous and you locked the house securely when you left. Much obliged!
Many thanks to you...and Patrick for getting us ship-shape and ready for the holidays. I've been waiting for Christmas lights for 25 years! And it's good to be able to see in the basement and I know all the plugs are properly installed and grounded. All the best to you.
I just wanted you to know how happy my wife and I were with the electrical service you provided for us recently. You were recommended by some friends and you more then lived up to their recommendation. The work you did the living area of the house - mostly changing the outlets to the 3-prong type- was neat and professional. I particularly appreciate the way you ran the wire on the outside of the house behind the downspout and along a ledge so that it wouldn't show and that you ran the other exterior wires through metal casing so that they wouldn't be exposed. The D.C. government inspector approved your heavy-up with no problems and PEPCO came shortly thereafter to finish their part of the job. Thanks again for the efficient, professional, and reasonably-priced service you performed.
After a series of power outages in our area, I decided to by a back up generator which keeps my family comfortable and allows my home business to continue operating. Walt recommended equipment and supervised the entire installation from delivery to approval by the local utility. He was on site when needed and was available for follow-up questions. I've used Walt's company for years for installation of ceiling fans to additional lighting and electrical repairs. Walt always gives me a day and time for service. it's usually the same day. He is prompt and efficient and his price is competitive and fair.
Very easy to work with, attentive to detail, understood the work I explained. Put in a better switch than I had before.
Truck lighting, scorces, new A/C unit. Excellent. Well Meyer listened to us and found a way to meet our needs, which were a bit unusual.
Numerous recessed lighting fixtures installed throughout the house (~15-20). Ceiling fan installed. Lighting installed in ~five closets. Meyer Electric did a big job for us, including electrical, lighting, and ceiling fan work. Everything went very well, and we were pleased with the work. It is not about six years later, and everything still works great. One thing that was really great about what Walt Meyer did was that he did his best not to create a lot of holes in the wall or other damage that would have to be repaired. He installed a lot of lights (and a fan) and there was very little that had to be done "afterwards" to fix any holes, etc. We were having a painter come in afterwards, so we were prepared to have him patch thing up, but he hardly had anything to do. Meyer Electric did a great job with our project, and we would definitely use them again. In fact since this job was done, we have!

As discussed in Part 1, the installation of a standby generator at your home will prevent most of the inconveniences and dangers resulting from losing electricity during the colder months. Part 2 will discuss several more benefits from installing a standby generator before winter.
Winters can bring extreme weather that puts stress on the electrical grid of your area. Heavy ice and snow brought by storms and freezing temperatures can bring down power lines, causing long power outages. Fortunately, installing a standby generator in your home will prevent most of the inconveniences and dangers resulting from losing electricity during the colder months.
Standby Generator Basics
If utility power is lost, you will not know when service will be restored. A standby generator eliminates this uncertainty by being ready when your power station goes down. It will detect when electricity from the grid has been cut and begin generating power for your home within seconds. A well-maintained standby generator is capable of operating nonstop for several days without needing to be refueled.
Heating Maintained – The installation of a standby generator will help ensure your furnace keeps running and heating your house, keeping your family warm and comfortable. If the temperature is freezing or below, your home will soon feel like a freezer without heating. A fireplace will keep the room that it’s in warm, but the rest of your home will be unheated.
Essential Appliances Keep Running – Without electricity, food and beverages stored in the refrigerator will eventually spoil. You may have to drive to the supermarket in the middle of a snowstorm to ensure there’s enough to eat. A sump pump also needs a consistent source of electricity to keep running to prevent a basement from flooding. A standby generator of the proper size will ensure all your home’s essential appliances keep running.
Automatic Transfer Switch – In contrast to portable backup generators that must be started manually, a permanent home standby backup generator will activate automatically when electricity from the utility is lost. This feature would be especially helpful if you are away from home when there is a power outage. A standby generator will also deactivate on its own once power from the utility is restored. Its automatic transfer switch will handle the transition safely.
Part 2 will discuss several more benefits from installing a standby generator before winter.

Automated coverings for windows and skylights for luxury bathrooms are rapidly growing in popularity. Their motors and gears used to be noisy and clumsy, but now they are silent and sleek in design. Nowadays, they are an expected feature in many high-end homes.
As discussed in Part 1, winter brings the most electrical dangers so doing needed electrical work during the fall will help give you the peace of mind from living in a safer home. Part 2 will cover four more important fall electrical services for your home.
3) Bathroom and Kitchen GFCI
To ensure bathroom and kitchen safety, the NEC requires GFCI protection for every new bathroom, as well as for kitchen outlets that are six feet or less away from the sink. The addition of ground fault protection to existing circuits will improve safety in every bathroom and the kitchen in your home.
4) Outdoor Lighting
Installing safety and security features such as pathway lighting and motion sensor lighting will prevent accidents and help protect your home from intruders. Exterior lighting can also beautify your property by highlighting the beauty of your landscaping and home’s architecture during nighttime.
5) Outlets and Switches
Two-prong outlets are now considered unsafe, and they should be replaced with dependable and safer three-prong outlets. Over the years, outlets and switches can suffer wear and tear and may become faulty and/or hazardous. Those that are in poor condition should be replaced for safety.
6) Whole-Home Surge Protection
Power surges occur in only milliseconds, and they often go unnoticed. When they happen, your lights may flicker. An appliance such as microwave may also reset its digital clock, which indicates a loss of power. Over time, the little spikes by the current within your home’s electrical wiring can eventually damage the components of expensive electronic devices.
The insurance claims filed for damage caused by power surges are in a similar category as lightning strikes. Altogether, they amount to more than a billion dollars in losses in the U.S., averaging insurance claims of $4,500. Fortunately, the installation of whole-home surge protection can help prevent damage from power surges and electrical storms.
