Electrical Panel Upgrade
If you are a homeowner residing in an older house featuring an old-fashioned and outdated fuse box, your home may need an electrical panel upgrade right away. Old fuse boxes are only capable of handling up to 60 amps of power. In today’s modern world of technological advances, electrical appliances that include central heating and air conditioning units may require up to 200 amps of power. Unless you are a Luddite who refuses to embrace contemporary advances in the field of electronics, you need an electrical panel boasting 100 to 200 amps.
60-Amp Fuse Boxes are Not the Only Culprits
Even if your home features a more modern type of circuit breaker mounted on the kitchen or laundry room wall, you still may need an electrical service panel upgrade. If your current panel only has 100 amps, the amperage may not suffice if you live in a fairly large house with the most up-to-date appliances. If you hear strange sounds emanating from your circuit breaker box or you observe an excessive amount of rust, you may need an electric panel upgrade. An electrician will provide you with a complementary estimate that explains the type of electrical panel upgrade your home requires and the cost involved in replacing your older fuse box.
Do Not Neglect Your Electric Panel During a Remodeling Project
If you are in the process of remodeling your home, you may not realize the need for an electric panel upgrade. It does not make any sense to remodel all the rooms in your house while neglecting to install an electrical service panel upgrade. If you plan to remodel your kitchen, you definitely need to think about an electric panel upgrade because newer refrigerator and stove models may require additional power. Before adding a brand new central heating or air conditioning system, consult with one of our electricians about an electric panel upgrade. Otherwise, you risk the danger of an unexpected fire due to your circuit breaker overheating.
Read the Fine Print in Your Homeowners Insurance Policy
Make sure your current homeowners insurance policy does not require an electric panel upgrade or your insurance company may not pay for any damages caused by an insufficient, outdated fuse box or panel box. If you are not sure about the coverage, speak with your insurance agent. If required, one of our professional electricians can easily remove your old fuse box and replace it with a new upgraded electrical panel.
Additional Outlets Require a More Contemporary Electric Panel
Your personal computer, printer, smart television and entertainment center use up more power than your father or grandfather ever imagined. Unfortunately, it does not do any good to buy new electronic devices if your panel box is old. Upgrading your home is a rewarding experience as long as you contact an electrician and set up an electrical service panel upgrade consultation.
Adding New Rooms in Your House Requires an Electrical Panel Upgrade
Instead of placing your smaller home for sale on the real estate market, you may want to add one or two rooms. With a growing family, space becomes an immediate necessity. However, neglecting to contact a professional for an electric panel upgrade estimate can result in a dangerous interior environment for your family.
Install a Home Security System and a New Electrical Panel
For extra safety, make sure you install a home security system and a new circuit breaker. Saving money is important, but the safety of your kids comes first. You can remodel your older home and add new rooms to increase the value of your property. However, neglecting to pay attention to your fuse box or panel box can turn into a costly mistake. The electrician will let you know if you need to replace your older fuse box or whether you need a new panel box featuring extra slots to accompany additional circuit breakers.

I came home to a nightmare of a situation. My panel had blown and my whole home smelled like electrical fire. They had a team of emergency electricians out here and replaced my circuit breaker within a few hours. I would recommend them to anyone.
I had an issue with flickering lights throughout my town home late at night. I had called another service and they were closed. I called them and they said they offered 24 hour emergency service. One of their emergency electricians came out right away and fixed the wiring problem. Thank You!
I need to get help fast. My insurance company told me that my Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) panel was way out of date and recalled in 1982. I was going to lose my insurance coverage. They said they offered 24 hour emergency service and they came out and had me re-installed and certified within a day! I cant thank you enough.
