What is the difference between Copper and Aluminum wiring?
What is the average amps needed for general use?
What if I want to increase the electrical power to my home?

Generation 3 Electric specializes in residential electrical services. We can evaluate your home and recommend the right power needed for your electrical use. A typical residential building uses 15 or 20 amps for general electrical purposes (ie. appliances, lights, computers, entertainment equipment). However, older buildings were not wired for all of the additional computer and entertainment equipment the 21st century homeowner is accustomed to using in their homes. Plus, many business people often work from their homes which increases the power usage. 

But what about Watts, Volts and Amps?
