Home Lighting Electrical Services by Residential Electricians

Your homes comfort and functionality relies, in part, on the lighting within. A great way to improve the overall look and feel of your home along with the value is to upgrade the lighting. This could also mean improving the energy efficiency of your home saving you money long term.

We are experienced are happy to help guide you to making the right decisions by helping choose the perfect home lighting to install, improving the function and overall look of your kitchen and home.

LED Lighting Upgrades and Energy Cost Savings


With lighting, our homes are safer, cozier, and more welcoming. Without it, we would have a very hard time doing things after dark, which sometimes means after only 5 pm for us Albertans in the dead of winter.


Unfortunately, around a quarter of the worlds energy is used for lighting which is why LED lighting upgrades have become so popular. LED lights use up to 85% less energy than conventional light bulbs and last 25 times longer than your regular incandescent lights.


LED lights can replace any standard 40, 60, or 100 watt light bulbs as well as replacing the bulbs in track lights, pot lights, fluorescent lights, under cabinet lighting, and almost any lighting around your home or office. Changing your regular incandescent light bulbs to LED lights can improve your home’s energy footprint and be an effective step in making your home more green!


LED lighting is probably the biggest improvement in lighting systems since the first light bulb was invented.


When it comes to LED lighting upgrades, they can be built into almost anything and they use a fraction of the energy used in any application. Just because you’re saving energy and money doesn’t mean you have to forgo style. When our residential electricians complete LED lighting upgrades for our customers we can use countless unique designs and the local Calgary electricians at AMPT Over Electric can take care of the lighting installation for you.

Electrician Aluminium Replacement

Residential Electricians for Aluminium Wiring Replacement

Homes built between the 1960’s and early 1970’s likely contain aluminum electrical wiring because it was a cheaper alternative to copper. Statistically, homes containing aluminum wire are 55 times more likely to have a fire.

Aluminum wiring is a fire hazard wherever the wire is spliced or makes a connection with an outlet, switch, circuit breaker, or other component of your electrical system. Additionally, aluminum wire contracts and expands with temperature changes, which can result in overheating, sparking, and fires.

If you are concerned about aluminum wiring in your home please contact one of our residential electricians as soon as possible to prevent and cause of harm to your property or your family.

  6. Intermittent but persistent flickering of lights that cannot be explained

  3. Calculate labor costs: Estimate the time required for the project and multiply it by the hourly rate of an electrician or electrical contractor.
  4. Obtain quotes: Contact multiple electricians or contractors to obtain quotes for the project. Compare the prices and services offered.

Yes, having an electric fence in a residential area is generally possible, but it is important to consider local regulations and guidelines. Electric fences are commonly used to provide security and keep animals or intruders away. Before installing an electric fence, it is crucial to consult with local authorities or homeowners' associations to ensure compliance with any restrictions or permits required.


Safety is paramount when using electric fences, especially in residential areas where children and pets may be present. It is essential to use warning signs, proper grounding, and voltage regulators to prevent accidental harm. Following regulations and taking safety precautions will help ensure a suitable and safe electric fence installation.

Commercial and residential electrical installations differ in several key ways. The main distinction lies in their purpose and scale.


The residential electrical installation focuses on supplying power to homes and apartments. It includes wiring for lighting, outlets, appliances, and heating or cooling systems. Safety and comfort are primary concerns in residential installations. The electrical load is generally lower, and the wiring is simpler.


On the other hand, commercial electrical installation involves wiring for larger buildings like offices, retail stores, and factories. The scale is greater, and the complexity is higher. Commercial installations often require more power to support extensive lighting systems, machinery, computers, and other equipment. Safety regulations and codes are more stringent due to the increased risk and the need to protect employees and the public.

The standard electrical service for residential properties is typically 120/240 volt alternating current (VAC) with a 60 hertz (Hz) frequency. This is called the "120/240 VAC, 60 Hz" service. It is the standard voltage used in most homes across the Canada and many other countries.


In residential settings, the electrical service is distributed through a main electrical panel or breaker box. This panel receives power from the utility company's electrical meter and distributes it to various circuits throughout the house. Circuit breakers or fuses help prevent electrical overloads and short circuits by protecting the circuits.

It's important to note that electrical standards may vary in different regions or countries, so it's always recommended to consult with a licensed electrician like Urban Piping for specific requirements in your area.

The best residential electrical panel is a matter of personal preference and depends on various factors. However, one commonly recommended option is the "load center" or "circuit breaker panel." These panels are designed to safely distribute electricity throughout your home and protect against electrical overloads. They typically come in different sizes to accommodate the electrical needs of different households.


Choosing a panel from a reputable manufacturer that meets your area's electrical codes and standards is essential. Some trusted brands include Siemens, Eaton, Square D, and Schneider Electric. Additionally, consulting with a licensed electrician can help determine the most suitable panel for your specific requirements and ensure it is installed correctly and safely.
