Do you need an electrical panel upgrade or electrical service upgrade? Sometimes you may not know if your home or business is in need of a service upgrade. The experts at Modern Electrical Services have been performing electrical services upgrades for homeowners and businesses with EV chargers, appliance upgrades and home additions of years.
Service Panel Capacity
All buildings have a limited amount of electrical power. Many businesses and homes have a basic 100 amp service. Factors including the size, age and location of the electrical panel can affect its electrical capacity. When your electrical service is upgraded its power capacity can be increased, giving you the option to install additional circuits for appliances such as washers, electric ranges and EV car chargers. The same is true when you are planning an addition or remodel. There is often no room in the panel to install additional circuits that are often required.
Weather and Time Damage
Many electrical services have been outdoors on the side of homes and business for years. They are subject to damage caused by the weather and the climate. Some have been overloaded for several years due to overheating, others become corroded and damp and some have bad connections and loose joints. Older service panels still rely on fuses that have been overheated, overstuffed, and corroded. If this sounds like your electrical panel it could be time to invest in changing or upgrading your electrical services.
Old Electrical Services
Some older panels are now considered to be unsafe. If you have a panel that was installed over 30 or 40 years ago you could have problem on your hand. They may not meet today's updated safety codes, have design flaws, or manufacturing defects.
