Heavy-Ups and Electrical Panel Upgrades
If your home has outdated electrical wiring or doesn’t have the electrical capacity to handle new electronics and devices, it could be time for a heavy-up. By having your home’s electrical panel updated and upgraded, overall power is increased and restored. Needed panel changes can prevent electrical shorts and ensure that your home’s electrical system runs without issue.
Any type of panel change should be handled by an experienced and qualified electrician. An experienced electrician from Michael & Son can safely inspect your home’s electrical paneling to look for needed changes. A professional inspection can pinpoint signs of wire deterioration or damage that needs replacement. Any home that is undergoing a remodel or addition should also have a professional inspection to ensure that the electrical panel is up to code.
You may need a panel change if:
- Lights flicker
- Breakers trip and fuses blow frequently
- Multiple outlets, extension cords and a sub-panel are needed
- Conductors overheat
- Outlets are two-pronged or non-grounded
- You have had new construction, renovation or additions made
An electrical panel upgrade or change is a comprehensive process that takes approximately eight hours to complete. Your home’s power will need to be shut off for about four hours. Michael & Son will ensure that the entire project is completed with ease. We’ll notify the power company and help you file the necessary paperwork with the county. Tired of dealing with flickering lights? Call Michael & Son today for an electrical panel upgrade!
