ADU Electrical Wiring
ADUs, or Accessory Dwelling Apartments, are smaller independent dwelling units on the same land as a single family home. Some are separate structures from the main house, while others can be transformed from attics, basements, or garages. Make sure to involve an experienced electrical contractor when planning your ADU project in Los Angeles so you don’t run into any unanticipated issues when a renter or family member comes in. MH Electric’s professionals may examine your current electrical layout and make recommendations for electrical service installations in your ADU. We specialize in electrical work for accessory dwellings and are familiar with all the codes. We provide free quotes and stand behind all of our services.

ADUs often have their own kitchen, living room, and entrance. An ADU can be linked to a house or garage or built as a standalone unit, but it will typically use the primary house’s water and energy connections. This is why you should hire a licensed MH Electric technician to examine your current electrical panel and provide you with the proper recommendations without interrupting power to the main house.
What are the Benefits of an ADU?
In The Los Angeles area homeowners are building accessory dwelling units to offset the high cost of independent living facilities and housing. There are several benefits to adding an ADU to your property:
Additional Income Source: The fact that ADU’s generate additional revenue is the number one reason why homeowners decide to invest in one. ADUs often include their own entrance, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, allowing you to rent them out as independent living quarters for renters.
Increased Property Value: The benefit of having an ADU is that it will raise the value of your home. You don’t have to spend a fortune to boost the resale value of your home. According to The Nest and the National Association of Realtors research, adding an auxiliary dwelling unit (ADU) or converting your garage will do this. The majority of potential homeowners are willing to spend extra for homes with attached ADUs because they provide greater flexibility, privacy, and reduced monthly living costs.
Keep Your Family Close: Building an ADU for your elderly parents might keep them closer to home and allow you to be more active in their everyday lives. This will save money in the long term, since assisted living expenditures can reach $7000 per month, whereas the cost of creating an ADU is normally only 10%-20% of that. This is a fantastic way to allow senior family members to live independently while yet being able to keep a check on them in case they want assistance.
