Electrical Panel Upgrade
The main electrical panel is the “heart” of your home’s electrical system. It receives the external wires that supply electricity to your building and then distributes it to the various areas of your home. The electrical panel is also where the safety devices, like fuses and circuit breakers, are located.
Depending on when your home was built, it may have an older panel that does not have enough capacity to power the electrical equipment that is currently in your house. This will usually indicate that it is time to have an Electrical Panel Upgrade, otherwise known as a “heavy up.” Whether you are adding new appliances or upgrading the old ones, a service panel upgrade is needed to handle the increased electric load.
Other signs that you should consider a Electrical Panel Upgrade are if you have to constantly reset or flip your circuit breakers or if you experience flickering lights. A new main electrical panel will eliminate these problems and allow you to add more electronics without worrying about overloading your home’s electrical system.
A home that has a new electrical panel will not only be safer, but it can also reduce the risk of fires. This will save you money in the long run and increase your resale value. It can also help you qualify for lower homeowner’s insurance rates since it will decrease the risks of electrical problems and damage. An electrician can advise you on the best electrical system to suit your needs and budget.Electrical Contractor
