FAQ

Is a Fuse Box Adequate for My Scarborough Home?

Fuse boxes are considered outdated and insufficient for modern electrical demands. To accommodate current loads, oversized fuses are often used, posing fire hazards. We strongly recommend replacing a fuse box with a circuit breaker panel in your Scarborough home. The upgrade offers not only enhanced safety but also convenience, as circuit breakers can be reset rather than replacing fuses. This modernization ensures your electrical system can effectively manage your household's needs while prioritizing safety, making it a valuable investment for homeowners in Scarborough.

Is it Mandatory to Install Smoke Detectors in Scarborough?

Yes, in Scarborough, it's mandatory to install and maintain smoke Detectors. Regular checks are necessary to ensure their proper functioning. This requirement is crucial for the safety of both you and your family. Compliance with these regulations helps protect lives and property by providing early detection of potential fire hazards, making smoke alarms an essential safety measure for homeowners in Scarborough.

What Is Aluminum Wiring and Why Is It Concerning in Scarborough Homes?

Aluminum wiring employs aluminum conductors instead of copper for electrical connections. This choice can be worrisome in Scarborough homes due to inherent aluminum properties. Aluminum is softer than copper, making it susceptible to damage during installation and prone to loosening as it expands and contracts with temperature variations. Furthermore, aluminum develops an oxide layer, a poor conductor of electricity, elevating the risk of overheating and potential fire hazards. Scarborough homeowners with aluminum wiring should remain vigilant about these issues, taking necessary precautions to maintain electrical safety and prevent potential hazards.

As a Scarborough Homeowner, What Inspection Types Are Relevant?

Scarborough homeowners may require inspections based on their specific projects:

New Residential: This pertains to installing a wiring system in a building or structure that lacked one previously.

Renovation Residential: This encompasses any alteration to existing wiring, including device repair and replacement. In some cases, owner-occupants of single-family dwellings may perform certain work without a permit when replacing specific light fixtures and switches. For clarification on project requirements, reach out to the Customer Service Centre.

Residential units in Scarborough include various property types, such as detached, semi-detached, row housing, duplexes, triplexes, quadruplexes, farmhouses, modular, or prefabricated homes. Appropriate inspections ensure electrical work complies with safety standards.

Is a Provincial License Necessary for Electricians in Scarborough, Ontario?

Absolutely, in Scarborough, Ontario, electricians, including helpers, are required to hold an apprentice license, even if they're assisting with electrical work. Additionally, before commencing any electrical installation, it's essential to verify if a permit is necessary. At HI-LIte Electric, we simplify this process by handling permits on your behalf. Our electrical wiring projects strictly adhere to the Ontario Electrical Safety Code, the authoritative entity governing interactions with city inspectors and local codes in Scarborough. This commitment to regulatory compliance ensures that your electrical work aligns with safety standards and satisfies city requirements.

We contacted Hi-Lite Electric Inc because of potentially life-threatening electrical issues we are having in our apartment that have been neglected and ignored by the property management. Luciano offered helpful advice as to how to approach the situation and find a solution; as well as providing the right contact information. He seemed like a genuine, empathic person with solid morals and was glad to help out without charging us anything due to genuine personal concern. I am very grateful people like him are still around. Thank you.
