Heavy Appliance Wiring
When you hear the name Bradley Mechanical, you often think of Richmond’s best HVAC professionals. You may be surprised to know HVAC services are not all we do. Our technicians and electricians can also handle all of your electrical needs for just about any heavy appliance your home or office might need. We’ve been servicing Central Virginia for over 50 years with electrical services including wiring for air conditioners, hot tubs, dryers and more.
Wiring an air conditioning unit involves high-voltage components and wiring connections that are not considered DIYer projects. Improper wiring and installation could result in serious problems for your air conditioning unit in the future. Our air conditioning professionals can wire any type of air conditioning equipment as well as handle connecting it to the main electrical circuit panel and setting up proper breakers.
Hot Tub Wiring
Installing a hot tub can be exciting but it takes more than just filling it with water and plugging it in. An electrician with proper training needs to be familiar with the National Electric Code (NEC) specifically pertaining to hot tubs. They must also understand the basics including GFCI, motors and wiring before attempting to install a hot tub. Also, installation can be complicated if it requires adding a dedicated circuit in your electrical panel and a subpanel near the hot tub. Our team of qualified electricians possess the know-how to properly install your new hot tub and make sure it is safe and operational.
Range and Dryer Wiring
Electric ranges and dryers are common appliances found in many homes. Since they both have higher voltage requirements than the average appliance, special outlets and wiring are necessary for installation. Most dryers run on 110 volts or 220 volts, depending on the size. Most electric ranges require a line voltage between 220 and 240 volts. The NEC requires that all new construction and remodeling use a 4-prong receptacle. While it is still within code to have existing 3-prong outlets for ranges and dryers, the 4-prong receptacle is much safer.
If you are in need of installing any heavy-duty electrical appliances, give Bradley Mechanical a call at (804) 748-6728. Our team of certified electricians will be glad to assist you in installing, repairing or replacing the wiring and outlets for many of your heavy appliances.
