Basement Wiring

Whether you have an unfinished basement you want to finish or a finished basement you want to remodel, there are plenty of tasks you can easily tackle on your own. Projects ranging from installing insulation and drywall to replacing the carpeting take more physical power than skill and generally are safe DIY basement remodel projects.

However, the electrical wiring in your basement is a very different matter and is best left for professional electrical wiring by licensed electricians.

Why Have Your Basement Wired By Professional Electricians

Unlike the other basement finishing tasks we have mentioned, generally, the worst outcome is that you ruin some of the project material and have to buy more. That’s not the case with incorrectly wired basements.

Basement electrical wiring can be incredibly dangerous if not taken care of by a professional electrician like the ones we employ here at HedgeHog Electric. In particular, electrical fires caused by improper wiring practices by DIYers are more than likely to occur.

With the assistance of professional, licensed electricians here at HedgeHog Electric, you can feel confident in your basement wiring. Our electrical technicians are all trained and are up-to-date on current building code, so your home’s electrical work is as safe as possible. If you are interested in our basement wiring services, we can assist you at all stages of your basement’s evolution.

Basement Finishing In Utah

If you have an unfinished basement in Utah that you are ready to complete, you can count on our electricians. Before you get your insulation panels up and drywall hung, contact us for a consultation, as it will be easier for any rewiring and new wiring to be placed if there are no walls in the way.

One of our electricians will go over what you are looking to have completed and make recommendations where appropriate. This consultation can make all the difference to your project, especially when it comes to determining where wiring outlets and lights wiring should be laid out and installed.

Electrical Wiring For Basements

Whether you bring in our electricians before or after the walls are up on the basement won’t stop them from being able to provide electrical wiring for your basement. Naturally, if you haven’t begun to insulate and wall in your basement, it is much easier to call in our electricians to assist with your basement wiring project. However, we can help with finished basements as well.

Often, there is older or DIY wiring in the basement of your home, since it was left to the end of a housing project. Our electricians can troubleshoot your wiring to check for problems or replace older wiring with new, safer wiring.

Basement Lighting Installation

Having the proper lighting in your basement is essential unless you are going for a dungeon-like feeling. Often, natural light is limited to window wells that allow nominal amounts of light that are not enough to do most activities. Whether the basement is meant to be used as a rental, a second den, or an elaborate man cave, our electricians can help make sure it is properly lit.

One of the difficulties people run into as they consider the lighting to place in a basement is the ceiling height. In most cases, the height of a basement ceiling is significantly lower than the rest of the house. That may mean that things like track lighting and ceiling fans aren’t the best idea. In many cases, flush mount light fixtures and recessed lights are the best way to tackle the electrical lighting in your basement.

However, lights that hang down may make sense in some instances, such as if you have a rec room with a pool table. One or two pendant lights over the pool table will help illuminate the game without being in the way. Also, if you have a second living room or den in your basement, a flush mount ceiling fan can be a good way to keep the room from being stuffy when others are there.

Using Electricians For Basement Remodeling

Tackling your basement and remodeling it can add greater comfort and usability to your home, as well as raising the overall value of your property. However, it can be easy for basements to fail to be up-to-code, as they are often left in unfinished states. Also, even if the owner prior to you completed the basement, some of the aspects like the electrical wiring may not be up-to-code any more.

With the help of our electricians, you can have your basement’s current wiring checked and receive expert advice and recommendations such as having new dedicated circuits wired to reduce power overdraws. Our electricians can also assist with custom electrical setups if you are looking to have mounted TVs and other entertainment systems in your basement.
