How to Plan for an Electrical Retrofit

June 04, 2019

Opting for a master electrician to conduct electrical retrofit is a major structural upgrade for your property. Everything from outlets to power boxes need to be tested for energy efficiency, and replaced in the event that they increase energy consumption. This is a meticulous and time-consuming process that is worth it’s while – as it will allow you to save you money down the long road. Due to the scope of work required for a master electrician to conduct a proper electrical retrofitting, it is imperative to prepare in advance.


Today we’ll discuss what preparatory steps you should take before your property’s electrical retrofitting


Business Continuity Plan

It’s expected that the electrical retrofit will likely result in a stall in daily operations. This would mean reassessing what steps need to be taken to maximize business productivity. Whether this means re-locating building or rooms, it’s worth figuring out what makes the most sense based on what is the most feasible


Back-Up Power

Having a reliable source of power through the retrofitting process is an important preparatory step to take. Whether it is renting generators to supply power in order to compensate for the shut off power during the project.



Figuring out where to put excess materials and waste such as old bulbs, wires, and equipment is also an important preparatory consideration to make. Ensure your waste is properly recycled or disposed of in compliance with current regulations.


Engaging the Right Firm

Finding a reputable master electrician that offers retrofitting services must be certified by the Electrical Safety Authority. Retrofits are usually conducted by an experienced team of installers, electricians, and project supervisors.
