Inc., a Family Owned & Operated Business
Founded in 1960 by Raymond and Pam Wharton. Wiring
new houses & up-grading existing electrical system
was the primary scope of work for the first few years.
The company then became an Authorized Electric Heating
Dealer for the Potomac Edison Power Company in 1964.
That same year, Wharton’s Electric had a retail
store in Burton’s Shopping Center in LaVale,
MD. This store featured a lighting fixture display
and sold electrical equipment to the public.
In 1968, the company expanded into gas and electric
heating & air conditioning installation and service.
WEI became a dealer for Sears Roebuck Company, installing
Sears furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, well pumps
and water heaters. WEI also began installing and
servicing commercial restaurant equipment including ice machines,
gas and electric ovens, stoves, steamers, deep fryers,
microwaves, waste grinders and dishwashers. Service
and installation were performed on all types of refrigeration
equipment such as reach-in coolers and freezers and
walk-in boxes for coolers and freezers.
Service expanded with the installation of roof top
heating/cooling equipment, swamp coolers, HVAC and exhaust
At the present, all of the above are still performed
with the addition of some plumbing and sheet metal
services along with mechanical contracting. Free
estimates are given on upgrading electrical service
and heating & cooling jobs. Emergency service
is available after hours from 4:00 pm to 7:00am.
The business moved from 54 Parkside Blvd to 40 National
Highway in 1989. The founders sons, Tab & Todd
Wharton took over operations in 2004 and continue
to expand and improve the company. Good, prompt service
is provided and that is what the company was built
on since 1960.
