Main Service Panel Upgrades and Repair

The rapid growth in technology and advances and improvements in electrical equipment are placing an increasing burden on the electrical circuits in homes, especially those built more than ten years ago. If you are dependent on electronics and electrical equipment, or are increasing your collection, you might want to consider main service panel upgrades – and repairs it if it is damaged.

What is a main circuit panel

The main circuit panel is where electricity enters your home from the municipal power grid. When it reaches the panel, it is disseminated and distributed to the different areas of your home through branch circuits. The connections to the branch circuits are made with circuit breakers, which are safety devices designed to disconnect the electricity to a branch circuit in the event of a malfunction. Poorly configured or damaged main service panels are safety and fire hazards, and they need to be repaired or upgraded.

What upgrading the main panel entails

Upgrading the main service panel is not a difficult or expensive problem, but it is not a home handyman job, it requires professional skills. Our trained and certified technicians will come to your home and, in a short time, they can add more circuits and outlets to your home’s system. In addition, the technicians will make sure the current circuits are properly rated for the amperage they are pulling; preventing circuit overloads and tripping of breakers.

Advantages to upgrading your main circuit panel

When you have the main panel upgraded, it allows you to:

  • Add more outlets and circuits
  • Reduce overloaded breakers that are always being thrown
  • Eliminate overcrowded outlets (a fire hazard)
  • Increase the ability to add large appliances
  • Increase the availability of power so you can have it when you need it, where you need it

In addition, if you are remodeling or renovating your home, local codes will require an upgrade to accommodate these changes.
