Looking to install a solar array, backup generator, or adding a 240 volt circuit for a washer and dryer? Eirich Electric Technicians have the experience to handle any size job.



The device that brings electricity into your home from your local utility. It monitors (“meters”) how much electricity you’re using and it should be resealed every 2-3 years to avoid water damage


The panel is a distribution board that divides your electricity into several “circuits”. Most panels have a series of switches, known as circuit breakers, in two columns. If you blow a fuse or the electricity goes out in part of your house, check your panel to see if you’ve tripped a circuit breaker. Before resetting it, verify that the affected circuit is clear of danger like water or loose wires. Turn off specific breakers if you’re doing work in your home, like installing a new outlet or fixture


If you have overhead power lines in your neighborhood, you may have a riser installed on your roof to connect to the overhead lines. Any wiring outside your home need to be inspected regularly. Cracked wiring can allow water seep into your panel and main breakers, frying your electrical system


Grounding systems use a thick copper wire to connect your home’s electricity to a grounding device, such as a copper rod in the ground or a cold water pipe. It re-routes extra energy away from your home – this decreases the risk of burning out your appliances or electrocuting someone in your home. An improperly grounded home could make your home unsafe during a weather event or power outage. Make sure your grounding system is properly installed before a storm hits

Eirich Electric transformed my workspace from poorly lit to beyond perfect. John was prompt and thorough with all communication and got the work done so efficiently… I was amazed.

Great professional job that was done quickly and for a reasonable price.John installed a new electrical box and exterior service.Could not be happier.

David A

By far the best experience in my contractor hiring domain thus far. I was contacted almost immediately after I submitted my need on HomeAdvisor, and we set up a time. He showed up on time, took a look at the job, we discussed a price, and he did the work that day. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, great with the kids and pets, neat and orderly, cleaned up after himself, and left the place in better condition that he found it. Also recommended a person to patch the area as the fan did not quite fill the space. Will absolutely be calling him again for my future needs, and recommend him without pause.

Donna C

He is professional and immaculate. Everything that he did was absolutely perfect and meticulous. He clearly loves his work and is very highly skilled in his trade. He made great recommendations for lights inside of my cabinets and other things that made a big difference in the overall remodel.
