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!

As discussed in Part 1, apartments built before the 1950s are desirable for their looks, but often have outdated original electrical equipment and wiring. They typically need upgrades to meet current power demands and safety requirements. Part 2 will discuss 220-Volt Appliances, Sizing the Upgrade, and Protection System.
Older apartments constructed prior to the 1950s are often highly desired for their architecture, spaciousness, and craftsmanship. Apartments of that era were built when residences consumed much less energy. They were capable of handling kitchen appliances, radios, lighting, and televisions of that time. Unfortunately, their original electrical equipment and wiring are now outdated, and will need upgrades to meet current power demands and safety requirements.
Winter and the holiday season are on their way. Use the fall months for taking steps to prevent potential electrical problems that can lead to fire during the colder months. Winter is much more dangerous electrically because of the use of space heaters and a spike in the number of electrical devices used. Ask a licensed electrician to perform a safety inspection to check for the three wiring problems discussed below.
Lots of simple and easy electrical jobs can be done by homeowners. Most homeowners can replace light bulbs, install a new power cord for an appliance, and install a small light fixture. There are other jobs such as the installation of an electrical panel, outlet, power switch, or wiring that require a professional licensed electrician. Some electrical tasks may look easy but dangers always are present when doing electrical repairs.
As discussed in Part 1, when you are installing or upgrading a home network, choosing the right type of Ethernet cable is critical for the success of the project. Part 2 will discuss the top reasons for upgrading your home to Cat6a cabling.
