Electrical Panel Upgrade

Modern Circuit Breaker Panels are more convenient, and are built to far higher safety standards than outdated fuse panels.
Extra protection is incorporated into the latest equipment in the form of circuit breakers.
These circuit breakers protect every device in the house with sensitive circuitry that responds quickly if there is a fault, opening the circuit and eliminating the risk of injury.
There is also excellent protection available in the form of Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers and Arc-Fault Circuit Breakers.
Older equipment and wiring systems did not have to support the modern appliances of today. Overloading and doubling up of circuits is commonly seen on older outdated fuse panels, the result of improper installations that were never inspected. This can cause fires. Installing a new Main Service Circuit Breaker Panel can eliminate this potentially dangerous situation.

Here are some reasons to upgrade your Panel:

  •       Reduce the chance of an electrical fire.
  •       Eliminate doubled-up circuits (Electrical Safety Code violation).
  •       Eliminate the need to replace fuses, or the chance to install the wrong size of fuse, which is a common fire hazard.
  •       Capacity to add additional circuits in the future.
  •       Increase the resale value of your home.
  •       Comply with Insurance Company requirements.
