Keeping up to date with energy demands can save you money and keep you safe.Homes that are older may be inadequate in terms of overall power outlets and power supply. Upgrading your meter pan will increase your system’s electrical capacity. Likewise, older panels often lack the space to add more circuits and may be risky.
Numerous insurance agencies will withhold coverage on homes with older panels including fused panels, 60 amp panels, and panels with a round meter socket (anything short of a 100 amp board). A 100 amp panel is typically a requirement when selling your home.
What does a service upgrade involve?
For a standard service upgrade, removing your old circuit board or fuse system and replacing it with another electrical switch is ordinarily what is required. Old circuits will be integrated with the new framework, and the old meter socket and weather head are replaced with new hardware. This is also the ideal time to add dedicated circuits to the board. Our estimators are glad to include this work in your quote.
