Here are three of the most common work requests our electricians receive from Cochrane homeowners: 1) installation of a light and/or ceiling fan, 2) upgrades of an entire home lighting system with modern energy-efficient fixtures and 3) troubleshooting of electrical repairs and issues.

It could be power outages, frequent breaker trips, faulty switches, arcing, or some other electrical gremlin – we are experts at troubleshooting and fixing all sorts of scenarios. In addition, we have the know-how to make your home a safer place by replacing old outlets with GFCIs, upgrading outlets and switches, childproofing your electrical systems, and installing whole-home surge protection.

Outlet Installation and Repair

Your outlets are the components in your home that you’re likely in contact with on a daily basis, and it’s essential that they’re in good condition. If your outlets have stopped working, your plugs are loose or falling out, or you’re seeing signs of damage such as heated or burnt plastic, our electrical repair services will get you sorted out.

We can install outlets that will make your electrical work safer and more convenient, such as GFCI, AFCI, or TRR outlets, USB outlets, smart outlets, or higher capacity outlets.

In-Floor Heating Installationin floor heating installation icon

Imagine waking up to a cozy heated bedroom floor on one of those chilly Cochrane mornings. Ahh! Anyone with radiant heat will tell you this kind of heat is also great for your health – it’s non-drying and non-allergenic! Sun Electrical offers you warranted, in-floor heating installation for both energy efficiency and dependable luxury.

As a certified NuHeat in-floor heating system installer, Sun is fully qualified to advise you on the best radiant heating application for your new house construction or home renovation. Plus you will get an added bonus when we install your in-floor heating – our Sun Electrical extended warranty, providing 25-year total protection on the product, future repairs, floor covering and installation costs.

Panel and Electrical Service Upgrades

With time, you may need to have Sun Electrical upgrade your panel electrical system to ensure a safe, adequate supply of electricity to your home. This often includes replacing your current panel with a modern 200-amp version. Sometimes a panel might have degraded as a result of heat and temperature changes; more often panel replacements are due to increased demand on your system, because of all our 21st century appliances.

Another upgrade we can perform to your electrical system is the installation of a whole home surge suppressor. This will protect your sensitive (and expensive!) electronic appliances and devices against our frequent local power surges.

Hot Tub Installers

Hot tubs are a great way to relax and fully enjoy your Cochrane backyard all year round—not to mention they’re a great way to increase the value of your property.

Any home renovations, such as a hot tub installation, will require electrical solutions, and your Sun Electrical electrician has experience with electrical work required to install a hot tub, such as obtaining electrical permits and wiring to prevent damage to your property.

Home Automation System Installation

These days, home automation systems are not just a fad, but also a real chance to get control of your home and your life. Done right, home automation will save you time, energy, money, and hassle – and even improve your safety and security.

Before you begin, though, we recommend that you talk with our experts and plan out all the details of your electrical system in advance. We’ll help you ensure that you choose the best, most reliable home automation components and get them installed correctly. That way, you will make the most of your investment.

EV Charging Station Installers

Sun Electrical offers you a choice of chargers that will be compatible with your vehicle’s make and model. We will also take care of the EV charger station installation, as well as any electrical panel upgrade that might be required.

About Sun Electrical in Cochrane

Sun Electrical is a small family-owned and operated Alberta business, which got its start in 2015 with a conversation around a campfire.  Bernie and Ryan Wandler, the father and son team who own Calgary’s Knight Plumbing, and their cousin Evan Hinger (an electrician by trade) came up with a brilliant inspiration – founding an environmentally-friendly, money-saving electrician service. And so Sun Electrical was born.

Located in the Calgary area conveniently close to our neighbours in Cochrane, we value our relationship with the community in the surrounding area. Our mission is to provide energy-saving solutions, expert advice and worry-free electrical installation and 24/7 repair, ultimately helping local homeowners to live and work better.

You can rely on the work performed by our certified journeyperson electricians – because it’s backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee! All materials and parts we use are approved by Canadian National Standards, and every job conforms to the Canadian Electrical Code.
