Eichler Electrical Work

Housing trends come and go, sometimes they cycle back around, and others stay classic forever. A type of home that falls under that classic style is Eichler style homes. Along with a unique look, Eichler homes require unique attention to the inner workings of the house.

An Eichler home does not have anything above or underneath it, meaning you will never find a basement or an attic in one of these homes. There are no crawl spaces either, which makes access areas a bit more challenging to work with. This means that the electrical wiring throughout the home will be behind the walls, along the roof, and underneath the home’s slab. Due to the difficulty of the wiring, it’s not a job for an everyday electrician.

Hiring an electrician that specializes in Eichler homes is a must when it comes to fixing/replacing any wiring within the home. It’s not the danger of the electrical wires that causean issues, but the difficult challenge of the wiring itself that requires a specialist. Most Eichler homes are models made decades ago, so it is essential to have the electrical panels inspected by a specialist as well. Some of these older model Eichlers can have panels that are very outdated and could cause irreversible damage if ignored.

So next time you’re out house hunting, and you find that perfect little oddity in an Eichler home, put hiring an Eichler home electric specialist on the top of your to-do list.

Gott to hand it to Gott Watts, called them out for a panel up grade and ended up with Solar! Did my research, solar panels and power walls is not just about the brand, but who installs it. Gott Watts had great reviews and I found out why. They take care of everything for you permits and all. There communication and follow up is outstanding. Their crews for install are great... Friendly and professional.

I am extremely happy with my new solar panels and electrical panel upgrade. The team was clean, friendly, and professional. I had some questions and concerns about the process and everything was explained thoroughly and patiently. I hired an outside roofing company, a mix-up occured, and I was getting frustrated, Got Watts went above and beyond and intervened on my behalf. I can not say enough good things about this company.

The scheduling process was easy, straightforward and very professional. The electrician did the work beautifully, consulting me when necessary, and cleaning up after himself when he was done. So happy with the result from Watts Electrical!
