The electrical panel is the core of your electrical system. This is where your home receives electricity from the utility company. The power is then distributed throughout your entire home until every outlet and light has the power that it needs.

“The guys at MDC Electric did a fantastic job installing level 2 EV charger plug. David did the job very efficiently within the time frame. Cable routing was neat and I haven’t seen a single dust particle after the installation. Being an OCD person I was really impressed with the quality of the installation and value for money. Glad that I retained David for the job and definitely recommend MDC Electric.“
Ramy G, Newmarket
“From the onset, David from MDC Electric provided prompt and courteous customer service. After reviewing our hourly usage to understand when and how much electricity we use, he offered two different options. His quotes were extremely competitive in comparison to the other handful of estimates I received from company’s throughout the GTA. On the day of the job, his work was completed in an organized, clean and timely manner with quality being his number one priority. He provided us with an ETA and kept us in the loop as the work was being completed. I appreciate David’s efforts in installing my Electric Vehicle charger and would highly recommend MDC Electric to any of my family and friends. I look forward to working with David for my future electrical projects.“

“David responded quickly to my request for an estimate and his estimate was very competitive. When I received the wall connector from Tesla, he installed it the next day. He did a very professional job and provided information for the inspector that resulted in the inspection only taking a few minutes. He was very informative through the whole process and ver personable. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending him.“
Gordon Wilkes, Barrie
“We ask for quotation from 3 of the Tesla recommended contractors to install our Tesla Wall Charger, only MDC Electric took the initiative to come by my house and see what really needs to be done, the rest just gave rough estimate and quote for extra work they assumed. I am glad I chose MDC Electric as David was very detail, excellent suggestions on the wiring route with minimal invasion to the wall of my house, he is so neat, tidy, clean, and did an excellent job with a personal touch. The installation was within our budget and I was so impressed with his work. I will definitely recommend him to all my friends and neighbors, not just installing charger but all electrical work.“

Not all receptacles are engineered alike. GFCI stands for “ground-fault circuit interrupter” and is designed as a safety outlet to prevent electrical shock and electrical fires. GFCI outlets differ from fuses. Fuses act as a safeguard against electrical fires by heating faster than a wire if a hot wire happens to come into contact with a neutral wire. The fuse heats rapidly and burns out before the wire can ignite a fire. GFCI outlets and breakers act (more…)
When it come’s to your home’s electrical system, do you really want just anybody tinkering with the wires behind your walls? Hiring a Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC) is not only the law, it’s your safest choice.

I would like to express the importance for residents of Ontario to have functioning smoke alarms on every floor of their home and in sleeping areas. A fatal fire in Brampton, Ontario on Tuesday, Feb 14 took the lives of three people — This left an 8 year old child badly burnt and without a family. It was confirmed that the Brampton home had no working smoke alarms.
Take a minute to think about how many devices you have plugged in the electrical outlets of your home. How many of those devices have an electronic or digital component to them? Just think – your television and cable box, DVD player, audio and home theater equipment, your laptop and desktop computer, modem and router, kitchen appliances, and that’s just naming a few. Are your devices properly protected from a power surge? Are you willing to take that risk? We’re not – that’s why we rely on whole home surge protection and surge protectors (and you should too!)
Whole Home Surge Protection Is A Smart Choice
Surge protection is nothing new; if you own a computer or hi definition television, there’s a good chance you have those electronics plugged into surge protection devices right now. Homeowners should purchase individual surge protectors to protect their devices and electronics. They should also have whole home surge protection wired directly into their home’s electrical panel. Doing so turns your home into one giant surge protector.
A whole-home surge protection strategy offers loads of convenience, and depending on how many devices and appliances you need to protect, it can be more affordable than purchasing several individual surge protectors. It will also extend protection to major appliances for which surge protection adapters aren’t readily available.
Surges Can Come at Any Time
It’s normal to think surge protectors save our devices from surges caused by lightning strikes. June to August are high lightning strike months for homeowners throughout North America. But those aren’t the only zaps you need to worry about. If a storm or other event knocks out power to your home, a surge will typically course through your system at the moment power is restored. This may also happen if you restore power with your own backup generator.
Surges may happen without you even realizing it. If you ever notice the lights slightly flickering in your home, that’s usually because of an electrical surge. These typically won’t completely fry your electronics or appliances, but repeated minor surges can shave months or years off their operational lives.
The High Cost of Surge Damage
Our high-end electronics are usually the highest priority when it comes to using surge protectors. It’s important to keep in mind that a sufficient electrical surge can harm most of the appliances in your home. As appliances like refrigerators, ovens and dishwashers become more sophisticated and equipped with smart technology, it’s important that their sensitive components receive protection.
This is even true for your HVAC system. Major power surges can do heavy damage to furnaces and air conditioners, even when they’re not in use. Shaving years of life off such major equipment can cost you thousands of dollars over a lifetime of home ownership. Worst case scenario: a surge can damage your HVAC system to the point of replacement.
So if you’re concerned about the threat of power surges in Newmarket, Barrie, or York Region consider contacting MDC Electric today. We can offer a free estimate and explain everything that whole home surge protection entails.
