Electrical Upgrades

Often, when people think of needing electrical upgrades for their homes, they think of simple, practical upgrades like new outlets and lights. While these things are great, there are a number of electrical services you can access to upgrade the electrical work in your home.

Whether you are looking to add recessed lighting, solar panels, or some other electrical project, you can count on HedgeHog Electric. We are licensed electricians serving Northern Utah as well as Southern Utah, and we are committed to a high level of professionalism that has made us highly rated electricians. We perform both residential and commercial electrical work.

Below are the electrical upgrades we offer. If any of them are what you are looking for, feel free to contact us so that we can consult with you on your electrical upgrades.

Basic Utah Home Electrical Upgrades

Most homeowners have at least a few areas in their home where some basic electrical upgrades can have an impact on the overall functionality of the space. Whether it is due to outdated or too few outlets, upside-down switches, or other issues, having some basic electrical upgrades can make your home more comfortable. Some of the common electrical home upgrades our electricians perform are:

  • Outlet upgrades – You can have older two-prong outlets swapped out for new three-pronged outlets which are safer and compatible with modern devices. You can also opt for specialty outlets—such as GFCI outlets for wet rooms and outlets with USB ports—to accommodate your personal household needs.
  • Light switch upgrades – Improperly installed light switches can be changed out by our electricians. Another option is to have a speciality light switch—like dimmer switches—installed to upgrade your light switches.
  • Whole-house surge protector – Rather than purchasing a bunch of individual surge protectors, you can upgrade to whole-house surge protector by having our electricians install this system.

Home Wiring Upgrades

Determining when your house’s wiring needs to be upgraded can depend on several factors, such as if you need an entire wiring overhaul or if you need something a little simpler—like having a new dedicated circuit installed.

HedgeHog Electric can provide a range of wiring services so that whatever wiring you need upgraded, we are here to help. We can upgrade wiring both inside your home as well as upgrading your outdoor wiring. That way, you can safely have all your electrical needs met.

Smart Home Electrical Upgrades

One type of electrical upgrade that is continuing to rise in popularity is smart home upgrades. These upgrades can make it easier to control different things in your home from your thermostat to the lights in your home. Common smart electrical upgrades are:

  • Smart thermostats
  • Smart smoke alarms/carbon monoxide detectors
  • Smart lighting systems
  • Smart home security
  • Smart sprinkler systems

You can feel free to discuss your smart electrical home upgrades with our electricians during your consultation.

Lighting Upgrades

Upgrading the lighting in your home can revolutionize it. Instead of avoiding a dark and uninviting room, with the right lighting services, you can transform a darker room into a welcoming oasis of light.

You also have plenty of options when it comes to lighting upgrades, both inside the home and outside. Lighting upgrades you may want to consider are:

  • Light fixture upgrade – Many rooms come with one small flush mount light fixture. While there is nothing inherently wrong with a flush mount fixture, they don’t always have the capacity to properly light all parts of a room. Changing out one of these simple fixtures for a ceiling fan with lights or other multi-light fixtures can significantly brighten up a room.
  • Light fixture addition – Having one central light fixture is often not enough for larger rooms like living rooms, dining rooms, and the kitchen. Our electricians can install additional lighting—such as recessed lighting—and you can start enjoying your larger rooms without needing several lamps to help brighten the room.
  • Outdoor lighting upgrades – Whether you are looking to utilize your outdoor spaces with landscape lighting or increase your home security with outdoor lights, you can achieve these things with outdoor lighting upgrades.
  • Energy-efficient light upgrades – To help save on your electrical bill, upgrading your lighting to energy-efficient options can make a considerable difference.

If you aren’t sure what lighting upgrades would suit your home best, our electricians can consult with you and provide you with various appropriate options.

Solar Installation Upgrade

A major electrical upgrade that we offer here at HedgeHog Electric is solar panel installation. Not only can you enjoy access to renewable energy, but there are also solar energy rebate programs that reward you for opting for green energy.

Also, in Utah, you can have our electricians connect your solar panel system to the main energy grid. If you contribute more energy than you use, the excess can be credited toward your future electrical bills.

Here at HedgeHog Electric, we can walk you through the entire solar panel installation process. From consulting with you on what size, position, and budget you have for your renewable energy upgrade to installing your panels and connecting your home’s electrical system, HedgeHog Electric can be your all-inclusive option when it comes to solar installation.
