Electrical Service for Your Current & Future Power Needs
Depending on when your home was built, your electrical system may have only 60 or 100 amps. This was plenty of power for the time when the house was first constructed, but 200-amp service is recommended for today’s homes. In the past, homes didn’t have the heating and air conditioning equipment, energy consuming appliances, or electronic devices that are typical in today’s homes.
Upgrading your electrical service ensures that your home has sufficient power and avoids overloaded circuits, which can cause a fire hazard and damage your appliances or equipment. Our electricians provide service upgrades in West Virginia to make sure your home has enough circuits to safely meet your family’s power demands.
Generally, the expected lifespan of an electrical panel is between 25 and 40 years. However, even if a panel is less than 40 years old, it still may not be supplying sufficient power for modern appliances, electronics, video games, security systems, multiple televisions, and equipment. If you have concerns about your electrical service, you can watch for signs that it’s time for a service upgrade.
A new electrical panel may be needed when you notice:
- The panel is old or in poor condition
- Circuit breakers seem to trip often
- Lights dim or flicker when other appliances are used
- Buzzing sounds near the panel
- Burn or scorch marks on the panel
Another time to consider a service upgrade is when building an addition on your home or adding appliances or equipment that requires a lot of power, such as a pool, spa, or an EV charger.
