Electrical Connection in Montreal

Making a major electrical connection is a task strictly reserved for experienced professionals. It’s a dangerous job both for the installer and for those who will occupy the premises if the connection is made carelessly.

Electrical connection

Electrical connection involves connecting a new electrical circuit in a home or building to the public distribution network. It’s only thanks to the connection that a private area can benefit from electricity. Once it has been properly installed, all electrical appliances in a house or premises can be operated.

Connection: a complex and crucial task

The electrical connection is the source of electricity in a house. It is therefore of vital importance to the entire electrical network. If it’s the wrong size, it may not be able to cover all your home’s electricity needs. In another extreme case, it could also create a power surge on the electrical network, which could damage all appliances in the home. It is, therefore, essential to leave this task strictly to the care of experienced professionals such as SOS Electricien Montréal.

Strict standards to meet

Since connection is one of the most important stages in the success of an electrical installation, it must be carried out in compliance with a number of specific standards in force in Montreal and Canada.

Electrical panel installation

At SOS Electricien Montréal, we install your electrical panel. We provide everything you need, so you don’t have to worry about any details.

The electrical panel, the most important part of the installation

The electrical panel, often referred to as the distribution board, is the element that connects the external distribution network to that of your home or premises. It’s a box that contains all the electrical circuits in the home, as well as safety components such as circuit breakers and lightning arresters. The electrical panel is often installed at the entrance or in the garage.

The difference between an electrical panel and an electrical meter.

Don’t confuse the switchboard with the meter. This is placed upstream of the panel and is used to measure power consumption in the house or premises. This consumption depends on the wattage of the appliances you use in your home, and how long each appliance is in use.

What makes up an electrical panel

The electrical panel is made up of many important components. When you open the panel doors, you’ll discover several rows of modules that vary according to the size of your home. You’ll also see a general circuit breaker that will manage the overall power supply to the installation. Generally speaking, it switches off automatically in the event of a problem with the home network.

Circuit breakers protect appliances and lighting from power surges. Residual-current switches protect occupants by automatically shutting down when a current leakage to earth is detected. They prevent electrocution.

Inlet and outlet

We offer a relocation service for your main electrical entrance for any reason.

The inside and outside of the entrance

The outer part of the driveway is the area where the electrical joint connecting the house and the outside power line is located. It also includes the electrical mast installed on the building’s exterior cladding or on a pole. The interior includes the electric meter and panel.

Why change your entrance?

There are many reasons why you might want to change your entrance. Here are the main causes. Firstly, replacement is necessary in the event of wear and rust on the electric mast and meter base.

Secondly, when the power supplied by the external power supply becomes insufficient, the input must be changed in order to adjust this power. Thirdly, the change is essential in the event of noise at the entrance. Last but not least, worn electrical seals at the inlet and frequent jumping of the main circuit breaker are reasons to change the inlet.
