When to Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
Many older homes in this part of the country have a 60- or 100-amp panel because the average home had far fewer appliances and no electronics, as found in modern homes. These panels do not have enough power to run the many appliances, electronics, and devices that are common in today’s homes. There is a risk of overworking the electrical system, which can lead to serious safety hazards and electrical fires.
Upgrading your electrical panel can help to:
- Eliminate doubled-up circuits
- Reduce the risk of electrical fire
- Eliminate the need to replace fuses
- Provide enough capacity to add more circuits in the future
Your electrical panel can influence the resale value of your home, as well as the ability to sell the home at all. Many prospective buyers will avoid homes with outdated electrical panels in favor of houses with up-to-date electrical systems. Upgrading the electrical panel is a great selling feature if you are planning to sell within the next few years and may increase the value of your home.
New Electrical Panel Installation
A new main electrical panel will improve the overall quality of your electrical system. New panels are designed to meet higher safety standards and incorporate extra protection in circuit breakers to protect devices, such as Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters and Arc Fault circuit breakers. We can install a new electrical panel in your home to ensure that you have enough power to meet your current and future electrical needs.
Our certified specialists have the training, expertise, and tools needed to handle any electrical panel installation or replacement. We begin by assessing your home’s power requirements and walk you through the options, so you can make the best decision for your family.
Protect Your Home with a Grounding System
A grounding system protects your home and ensures your family’s safety by connecting your electrical system to the earth. The system kicks in when a ground fault occurs, which can have a variety of causes such as working on the electrical system without shutting off the power first. We can inspect the grounding system of your existing home or a house you are planning to buy to check the integrity of the electrical system.
If you aren’t sure that an upgrade is needed, we can inspect your electrical system to determine if it is time to replace the main panel and provide an estimate for your electrical panel upgrade in Belmont.
