Electrical Panel Upgrades
Older homes in this area along the Patuxent River between Baltimore and Washington DC can have a variety of electrical installation issues. In some cases, upgrading the entire electrical panel can be the key to alleviating tripped or blown breaker problems. You may also need to upgrade your electrical panel to ensure your older home can handle newer technology - such as multiple TVs and computers running at once, or an electric vehicle charging station.
Lighting Replacement & Installation

We'll work to ensure the connection to your home is secure, strong, and safe. In most cases, you can go pick out the fixture you'd like, and our licensed electricians can come to your home and install it for you! If you're not sure what to get - give our local electricians near you a call to schedule the time, and we can discuss what to look for in a new fixture - then we'll come to update your home with great new lighting!
Outlet Replacement and Installation
Older homes have notorious outlet issues. Most rooms had one or two electrical outlets - and in today's modern world, that's just not enough. We can come and add high-quality outlets to nearly any spot or room in your house. If you'd like to add exterior outlets for lighting, power for security lighting, or a pool or hot tub connection - we can do that also!
Electric Vehicle Charging Station
In the next decade, it's likely there will be more electric cars on the road than gas-powered ones. That means more and more homeowners are going to consider an at-home electric vehicle charging station a must-have accessory. Get ahead of the neighborhood by installing yours today. Our local electricians near you in Laurel, MD can evaluate your existing electrical system, recommend upgrades if needed, and install your Level 2 electric vehicle charger in Laurel, MD - which can work with Tesla, Honda, Chevy, and other makes and models.
Diagnosing Power Loss
When we are called in to diagnose the loss of power to your home, whether it's the entire house or just a few outlets and fixtures, we typically take a few steps to identify the problem. We'll check the circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If it has, we'll reset it and see if power is restored. If it keeps tripping, that indicates an overload or short circuit on the circuit. If the circuit breaker is working correctly, we may inspect all the outlets and switches in an area without power to look for any signs of damage or loose connections. We'll also check for tripped GFCI outlets. To check these outlets and switches, we'll use a voltage tester, to see if there is power present at each outlet or switch. This can help determine if the problem is just one outlet, or in multiple outlets. If our electricians suspect a wiring issue, we'll inspect the wires in the powerless area to determine if there's damage, a fixture that's faulty, or loose connections causing a short, or burn damage to the wires. We may also use a wire tracer to locate any breaks in the wiring. If those steps fail to diagnose the issue, we will test the main circuit breaker box to see if there are any issues with the breakers or wiring.
Installing Dedicated Circuits near Laurel, MD
There are a few reasons why you might want a dedicated circuit in your home. Firstly, it can help prevent overloading of the electrical system, which is a potential fire hazard. It can also reduce the risk of electrical shock by making sure that only one appliance is connected to the circuit.
Another benefit of having a dedicated circuit is that it can provide consistent power to an appliance, even if other appliances are being used at the same time. This is especially helpful for high-power appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, hot tubs, saunas, pools, or electric water heaters.
Install or Repair Bathroom Fans
Installing or replacing a bathroom exhaust fan is a simple yet essential task that can significantly improve the air quality in your home.
The first step is to choose the appropriate size and type of fan based on the bathroom's dimensions and ventilation needs. Once we have your new fan, we'll need to turn off the power to the existing fan, remove it from the ceiling or wall, and disconnect the wiring. The new fan can then be installed, with the ductwork properly attached and secured, and the wiring reconnected. Finally, turn the power back on, and we're all set to enjoy improved ventilation and a fresher bathroom environment.
Ceiling Fan Installation or Replacement
An electrician to replace or install a ceiling fan in your living room or bedroom will ensure that the fan is safely and properly installed, following all necessary building codes and safety guidelines required near Laurel, MD. They can also provide advice on the appropriate fan size and type for your space and help with any necessary electrical upgrades. Hiring a professional can save you time, effort, and frustration, and ensure that your fan is installed correctly, avoiding potential safety hazards or costly mistakes. Additionally, many electricians offer guarantees or warranties for their work, giving you added peace of mind.

My experience was phenomenal.. it was an old school customer service, at its best type of experience.. my garage doors won’t open and my electrical circuit keeps keep tripping and turning off my appliances in the basement. I searched The Howard County Best Pick Reports 2022 and looked for an electrician, it was a little after 5 PM. I read all the companies reviews and began to call based on what I read on quality and timeliness. My first two calls went directly to voicemail message, my third call went to Haas and Sons Electric Inc. A polite and professional young lady answered the phone, took my information and promised a call back in the morning. Next morning I check my phone and I received a voicemail from a young lady named Krysta, she gave me clear instructions to call her back, when I did she answered on the second ring! She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, professional and most importantly friendly! She told me when to expect the technician “Nick” and he arrived exactly in that time frame with a text letting me know he was 15 minutes away! Once he arrived Nick was absolutely professional, knowledgeable, patient with my questions and fixed both of my issues within an hour!! Ladies & Gentlemen, I have found my new electrician for the next 10 years!! Thank you so much Krysta & Nick , lunch on me!!! A very Satisfied Customer
Great job! Very professional and knowledgeable.

Haas & Sons has done great work for us. We might have been able to get a slightly cheaper price but for the quality of work that was done, the honesty, and the care that was shown, Haas & Sons was worth every penny.
Ken - Laurel, MD 20708
I had quite a bit of work that was needed but not urgent. These people came out to give me an estimate. They were out and changed my panel and I had work done in every room in the house and outside. They did the work in less than two days. The people worked, were friendly, and kept the place clean. No problems and I was very happy with our decision.
