Our Residential Electrical Services
When you’re constructing a new building, one of the most important concerns you have is finding a trustworthy and reliable electrical contractor for the job. You’ll need the electrical system to be completely dependable (you won’t want to hire an electrician for repairs shortly after construction has finished), and you’ll need a professional who can work within your time-frame and budget. Our Ottawa new construction electricians will work directly with your contractor and provide you with the most professional electrical services available.

Minor electrical blips and annoyances are often a sign something more dangerous is happening in your electrical system. Don’t dismiss those concerns as nothing, and don’t rely on guesswork or attempt DIY fixes.
Does your home suffer from any of the following common electrical problems?
- Outlets stop working.
- Switches stop working.
- Lights flicker.
- Lights dim or give you a sort of “brown-out” effect.
- You experience an electric shock of any kind.
- Your clothes dryer requires multiple cycles to get the job done.
- Your electric bill skyrockets.
You don’t have to live with minor annoyances like those. In many cases, an expert can solve the problem without your incurring a major expense.
The quick, easy, safe, and often lowest-cost way to troubleshoot and fix those electrical issues or others is to call Solas Electric – Ottawa’s top-rated electricians.
Circuit Breaker Replacement
While circuit breakers are designed to trip when they become overloaded, that should not be something that is happening all the time. If you have breakers that seem to be constantly tripping, it means that certain areas of your home are becoming overloaded too easily, and that likely means there is either a problem with your electrical panel, or it just isn’t equipped to deal with the kind of electrical demands that your home has. In either case, you will want to have a professional come out and help you determine whether or not your home is in need of an upgraded panel.
Electrical Outlet Install or Replacement
Do you need an electrical outlet installed or replaced in your home? Make sure it is done safely by Solas Electric. We provide professional outlet installation in Ottawa, so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself.
Electrical Panel Upgrade
Your electrical panel is the main electrical control box for your home, and acts like the brain of your entire electrical system. Because of this, it is extremely important to ensure that your electrical panel is kept up to date with your changing electrical needs, as having a panel that is overloaded can put your home at serious risk of electrical fire. If you have lights that are constantly flickering or dimming anytime you plug something in or an appliance turns on, breakers that are constantly tripping, or any weird noises coming from your panel, don’t hesitate to call in a professional right away. Let our team of professionals help you get the most out of your home in terms of both safety and function.

Our lighting specialists can install a wide range of interior and exterior lighting. Whether you need traditional recessed lights, energy efficient LEDs, exterior, landscape, motion lights, or anything in between, our electricians and design professionals can recommend the best residential lighting application for your needs.
Indoor Lighting and LED Retrofit
The right type of lighting can provide more than just a sense of security and illumination in the dark – the right light in the right place can brighten up a room and set the mood, making it a unique and more comfortable space instead of being some plain dwelling that’s the same as anywhere else. Consider adding dimmers or recessed lighting to control and enhance the mood of the room. From bright light for working to soothing low levels of lighting to relax, installation of dimmers and recessed lighting can make a great difference in how your room looks and feels.

Hot Tub & Pool Electrical
If you are looking to install a brand new hot tub or pool on your property, it is extremely important to make sure that all of your wiring is installed correctly and safely the first time around. The last thing you want to do is dip a toe in your new hot tub and get a shock. Here at Solas Electric, our team of professional Ottawa electricians have extensive experience working with these types of systems, and you can be guaranteed that your new hot tub or pool wiring will be of the highest quality and as safe as can be.
You are going to want to make sure that your electrician secures your electrical permit for the job, that there is a sub panel at the equipment pad to power the equipment, and that your work is done in a way that will pass electrical inspection. Skipping any of these steps is just setting yourself up for disaster, and our team of professional electricians can help guide you through this process to ensure everything is done correctly.
In Floor Heating
Solas Electric provides floor heating system installation, repair, replacement, and maintenance services in Ottawa.
Have you ever been hit with the following dilemma? It’s a cold winter night here in Ottawa, and you have to go to the bathroom. However, you cannot decide which will result in more discomfort: waiting until morning to get up and go, or stepping out of your warm, cozy bed onto an unforgivingly cold floor. Well, our floor heating specialists are here to ensure that you never have to make such a choice again.
Home Backup System & Generator
The next time you lose power, turn it back on with a home generator system installed and wired by Solas Electric.
Residential generator systems are available in two types: fully automatic and manual electric start portables.
They both primarily do the same thing with the exception that the fully automatic is just that…it’s fully automatic. When the power goes out the unit automatically starts and the generator restores the power to your home automatically. The electric start portable works similarly with the exception that when the power goes out someone needs to start the generator and manually turn on the transfer switch. The automatic standby units are available in natural gas or propane. The portables are available in gas only.
