Upgrade Your Home Electrical System
Many older homes simply do not have the capacity to handle today's high powered electrical devices. A steady increase of high powered appliances can mean that the electrical systems in many older homes can easily become overloaded. An electrical upgrade helps to ensure that your electrical system is equipped to meet your energy needs and protect your family and property. We can help you determine if your home's electrical system is in compliance with the most up-to-date codes and make all the necessary changes.
Common Home Electrical Problems:
Fuse Boxes Instead of Breaker Boxes - Many insurance companies now require that you do a service upgrade from fuses to breakers.
Ungrounded 2 Prong Outlets - Many older homes have only two prong, non grounded outlets. This presents a serious safety hazard.
No GFCI Protection - Many older homes do not have GFCI protection in their bathrooms or kitchens. This presents a serious safety hazard.
100 Amp Panels Instead of 200 Amps - The high electrical demands of today's modern home have created a need for higher electrical capacities.
New High Amp Appliances - High amp appliances like hot tubs or AC units have become very popular, but many older homes are not equipped to safely handle these heavy loads.
