FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Press Release – February 1, 2013 – Philadelphia, PA – Generation 3 Electric, William (Bill) Lutz, has completed the construction/remodeling industry’s most comprehensive training in the use of the U.S. Government’s FHA 203k Home Renovation Loan program. By earning the designation as a Certified 203k Contractor, Generation 3 Electric is listed in the 203k Contractor Directory, a nationwide database of educated, knowledgeable and experienced 203k contractors, and is dedicated to helping more Americans achieve the dream of home ownership, improve our communities, and contribute to the health of our economy.

“The FHA 203k Renovation Loan offers tremendous opportunities today for many consumers to tap into government insured rehab funds,” explains Bill. “The FHA 203k can revitalize entire neighborhoods, reinvigorate communities, create jobs, and help to improve the real estate market. Until recent years, there has been limited use of this program and little awareness of the opportunities it offers the current economy. By becoming a Certified 203k Contractor, Generation 3 Electric is going to change that.”

The 203k Contractor Directory, located at http://203kContractors.com® is a database through which Certified 203k Contractors can be located. It was established with the mission of educating contractors on the intricacies and nuances of the 203k program and giving consumers, lenders, and Realtors® a method of validating a contractor’s understanding of the 203k renovation loan program. Additionally, the 203k Contractor Directory increases awareness of the opportunities offered by the FHA 203k program, thereby educating everyone involved.

“The Certified 203k Contractor designation positions me to provide professional guidance to those who would like to rehab or improve a home to meet their needs,” says Bill, “and these are the homes offered at the most competitive prices. As a Certified 203k Contractor, I can help my customers more easily navigate the process of planning, construction, securing approval, and completing the home improvements.”

Generation 3 Electric was voted Best Electrician by Philadelphia Magazine’s 2012 Best of Philly and has been an Angie’s List Super Service Award winner since 2006. Gen3 is committed to being a good Philly neighbor by educating the community through other businesses, direct consumer interaction, neighborhood associations and participation in the 2013 Philly Home Show on the unique, yet sometimes dangerous and outdated electrical wiring still being used in Philadelphia residential buildings.

Maintaining your homes electrical systems

Homeowners are faced with the responsibility of maintaining the homes electrical system, And with the many problems that can arise,  most of them can he hazardous or even deadly, Its  always in your best interest to have your homes electrical repairs and inspections handled by a Licensed Professional. Being Licensed means you are up to date with any regulations and code requirements, Where an unlicensed electrician may not be...

Think of your Electrical Panel as the brain... It processes all requests for electricity to be sent to every room of your home whether a light is turned on, something is being plugged in or turning on power to an appliance, all those things are processed from the panel where the electrical current is sent from to the location where power is needed. So lets say you have a brain with 60 amps of power, but your trying to run 100 amps of power, it causes your homes brain to shut down, because of its inability to process the request, and that's when your breaker "pops"...

This is the most common of problems and many homeowners don't know that this problem has the potential to be a very dangerous one. Some older homes sometimes have outdated wiring and are unable to handle the power demands of today's modern appliances, At times we see that the wiring is not hazardous, and a simple "Panel Upgrade" is required, older homes commonly have 60 amps of power, when more modern home's have 100 amps of power or more to accommodate the power demand of  modern appliances.

So one way of being safe is to be sure your Panel can handle the current of electricity being used in your home, and assure your wiring is not hazardous, hazardous wiring can cause a electrical fire, that can start in the walls of your home and quickly become uncontrollable and even deadly. So if you find yourself having to constantly reset your breaker due to them constantly popping call us and we will come out to survey your homes electrical system.

 Here at G3E we promote safety and encourage homeowners to seek the assistance of a licensed professional for all electrical needs.
