Some may consider getting an electrical service upgrade an unnecessary home owner's expense.  However, your home will reap the benefits in the long-run, considering the fact that you will be protecting the value of your home.  So you may be asking, why should I invest in a service panel upgrade and how will it enhance my home?


Safety: Having an old electrical service panel can pose great risks to your safety and can ultimately lead to an overload or short in your electricity or even cause a house fire.  Does your service panel experience overheating? Do you hear strange noises coming from your electrical panel? If you are experiencing these issues, a service panel upgrade may be beneficial for you. Upgrading your electrical service panel will resolve dangerous issues and improve the safety of your home.

Consistent power supply: Do your lights flicker when you turn on certain appliances? Does your breaker trip for unknown reasons?  Improving your electrical panel will solve problems such as flickering lights and frequent breaker trips or blown fuses.  Ultimately, you will have a more consistent energy supply throughout your home.

Future Expansions: If you are thinking of adding more circuits to your home and your current service panel isn’t large enough, an upgrade will provide you with the resources that you need.  A new electrical panel will give you the options you need to add a few more outlets without tripping circuit breakers.
