RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL HEAVY -UPS
“Heavy-up” refers to a home or building electrical renovation that increases the amperage that comes into your building at the electrical panel. 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!
Part 2 will discuss Electrical Odors, Fuse Box, Overusing Power Strips, Tripping Breakers, and Warm Electrical Panels. Work with an experienced licensed electrician for your safety and best results.
Don’t ignore electrical burning odors coming from an electrical panel. This could indicate a faulty circuit breaker or improperly connected wiring. In either case, there may be a serious hazard with the potential for an electrical fire.
Homes with fuse boxes were typically built before 1960. If this is the case for your house, electricians recommend that you install an electrical panel with circuit breakers. Fuses that blow require replacement, while circuit breakers just need an easy flip of the switch to reset. Insurance companies consider circuit breakers safer and will charge less for coverage.
Overusing Power Strips
Homes that have numerous extension cords and power strips because there aren’t enough wall outlets are less safe. Adding wall outlets in every area a home needs more may require upgrading the existing electrical panel to handle the greater demand for power.
An electrical panel that crackles or has circuit breakers that trip often may require replacement. Tripping sometimes occurs when too many appliances are plugged into a circuit causing an electrical overload. As a safety measure, power is cut off to prevent the overheating of wires. A new electrical panel may be needed to handle the existing load.
Warm Electrical Panels
A serious warning sign is when an electrical panel feels warm to the touch. It may indicate overloading, a faulty panel, or an improper installment. Any of these three symptoms may require an upgrade.

If you are having ongoing issues with electric systems or appliances, an electrical panel upgrade (heavy-up) may be the solution. Getting a heavy-up before winter will help ensure the safety of your family throughout the holiday season and colder months when electrical loads jump dramatically.
Modern homes have much greater electrical capabilities than older homes. Unfortunately, older homes with outdated electrical wiring are incapable of powering today’s modern devices. Before hiring a licensed electrician for a wiring project, it's wise to spend time considering which rooms need improvements and what the scope of the work will be.
As discussed in Part 1, most homes use hot water or forced air heating systems because they are less costly. However, using electric heating is more advantageous in certain situations. Part 2 will cover Heat Pumps and Radiant Heating.
