Electrical Services We Provide

We offer a wide variety of much-needed electrical services to Central PA residential locations. Since we opened our doors back in 1980, we’ve expanded our electrical services and the areas we serve. We’re committed to handling all your electrical needs, which is why we offer such an impressive list of services.


If you need help with your existing home, you may need to have things such as lighting fixtures installed at your residence. From interior fixtures to exterior lighting and electrical panels, we install them all.

We install more than light fixtures at homes throughout the Harrisburg, PA, area. You can count on us to install:

  • Power outlets, sockets and tamper-resistant receptacles
  • Ceiling fans
  • Special circuits for things such as stoves, water heaters and HVAC units
  • Ground fault circuit interrupters
  • Ground connections
  • Low voltage cables for Internet, landline phone and fax machine connections
  • Systems that require low voltage, such as security, surveillance and fire alarm systems
  • Outdoor lighting and fixtures

We have been using Zimmerman’s for at least 15 years (probably more) and would not be using them now if we were not satisfied with your work.

Don’t know if you can find a better company to do business with!

We have used Zimmerman’s for many years now….we have always received quality service from them and they have always been friendly & professional! They have come out for a few “emergencies” over the years and have taken care of things quickly & efficiently!

Because of your staffs’ customer focus and expertise, I feel very comfortable I made a great investment by choosing Zimmerman’s. Thank you so very much for providing the service, but more so, for cultivating a team that is so easy to work with.


If you lose power or an electrical component isn’t working the way it’s supposed to, our expertly trained residential electricians will troubleshoot the issue. Once we identify the underlying cause of the problem, we’ll explain it to you and create a plan to fix the issue.

Planned Electrical Maintenance

When you hire us to provide this service, you’ll enjoy even greater peace of mind in your home. We’ll inspect your home’s entire electrical system to ensure it’s safe and up to current code requirements.

Short Circuit Repairs

When active and inactive wires come into contact, it often results in a short circuit. A short circuit can lead to a blown fuse, or it can trip a circuit breaker. There’s no need to worry, however, because we can repair short circuits.

Circuit Breaker Replacements

Circuit breakers will trip or turn off a line’s power supply as a safety measure to prevent overloading. In general, short circuits or a ground fault are responsible for causing a circuit breaker to trip, but faulty breakers will trip or fail to trip when they should for no reason. If you have a malfunctioning circuit breaker, we’ll replace it for you.

Electric Panel Replacements and Upgrades

Whereas circuit breakers are dedicated to individual lines of power, your electric panel is responsible for providing power for your whole house. If your panel isn’t working properly, it can disrupt your daily routine. Similarly, older electric panels can be a hassle if they don’t provide ample power for all the electrical lines in your home or they are out of code. Whether you need to replace a dysfunctional panel or you want to upgrade to a newer, higher capacity unit, we’ll take care of it for you.

In addition to replacing a panel or installing an upgraded unit, we can install a surge protector at your electric panel. A surge protector will protect connected devices from damage if there’s an electrical surge.

Backup Generator Installation

Just like we install everyday items such as light fixtures, we also install backup generators. A whole-house backup generator will ensure your home has a power supply even when the supply from your utility company is temporarily down.
