In the electrical field not all material is created equal. Ease of installation, final appearance, ease of operation, durability, and longevity are all taken into consideration when purchasing material to be installed on your job. When the homeowner purchases material, usually price is the only factor when picking out an item at their local Home Depot or Lowes. Just because it will be hidden in your basement or attic, DO NOT COMPROMISE. At ZP Electric, we only install reliable material from trustworthy companies. While anything you buy at the big box stores will most likely be UL listed, this only means that it has passed minimum safety requirements.
Ease of Installation
While ease of installation may not seem important to the homeowner, the more time we spend in your house will increase the final cost of labor, and possibly require a return visit. Another point to consider is that an easier product to install usually is less disruptive to your home.
When poor quality material, installed by the homeowner or the lowest bidder (handyman or electrician) you get what you pay for. Fixing already finished jobs now doubled your original cost. For example a 200a service from the lowest bidder most likely uses aluminum wiring instead of copper and a lower quality main panel like Eaton instead of GE or Square D.
This may be self explanatory, but the way the job looks when finished is very important to us. The cheapest material may work when the job complete, but will you be happy when we walk out? We want you to enjoy what has been installed in your home. Dimmers, outlets, lighting, and fans are part of your homes décor and matter just as much as the color paints you choose.
Ease Of Operation, Durability and Longevity
When we leave you with a product it is now your job to work with it. Lower quality products are harder to work with and don’t last as long. GFCI outlets for example do not work well outdoors. Yet are required in all outdoor locations. Our solution is a GFCI Breaker. Not only are they protected from the elements inside of a panel they will last much longer since the electronics inside stay in a controlled environment. The cost of the breaker up front may be more out of pocket, but repeat installations of GFCI outlets will cost you the consumer more in the long run. As for ease of operation, there is no need to go outside and find them to reset them when they trip. Just walk up to your electrical panel and turn it back on.
Our commitment to our customer is our highest concern, what we install is a reflection of our work, and we will always be proud of our final product.
