Since 1968, Marcel Electric Inc has supplied electrical services to commercial structures and area homeowners.
Whether it’s a simple electrical problem or a more complicated project, you can count on us. We also complete many specialized repairs and tests to ensure the safety of your building wiring.
In addition to our regular service for residential, commercial, and industrial clients, we also offer a host of specialized services, including:
In the mid-1970’s, many homes were wired with aluminum. Although this cut down on the cost of installation, aluminum wiring has shown to be less safe and efficient than its copper counterparts. In order to bring your aluminum-wired home up to the current safety codes, we offer a service known as “copper tailing” which adds copper wire to your existing aluminum wire.
We verify the proper function of your detector using a safe aerosol spray to trigger the actual detection mechanism within the smoke detector. This is type of test is recommended annually. Marcel Electric can provide this service on an annual contract for apartments, strata, and commercial establishments. We have done this type of service for Ottawa Community Housing Corporation and Urbandale Corporation.
A lot can change about a building’s electrical wiring over the course of a year. Marcel Electric provides preventative maintenance services to test the safety of plugs, switches, lights, while replacing or repairing any items on an as-needed basis. Upon checking wiring in a building, we often find unsafe or illegal wiring that was completed after initial wiring. We can help bring the wiring in your home or building up to code.
We can help find a potential problem and repair it before it causes a power failure or fire. Hot spots are located to show damage to equipment that needs to be repaired or replaced. Thermal imaging can help pinpoint areas that are prone to fire, whether due to improper wiring or overloading. Following the survey, if any problems are detected, we can provide you with a free quote on any repairs that may be needed.
