Guelph Electrical Panel Upgrades
Each home has different electrical needs. That is why Home-Pro Electric is dedicated to providing customized service for each of our Guelph customers. If you are considering an electrical panel upgrade, our team can help you choose an amperage service and then quickly install your new panel. Here is some more information about our panel upgrades.
When to Consider a Panel Upgrade
A panel upgrade is not necessarily for everyone. Some problems with the electrical panel can be easily fixed with a quick repair. However, here are a few reasons why a panel upgrade may be the best decision for you.
You Still Have a Fuse Box
A fuse box is an electrical panel that is equipped with a fuse on each circuit that blows when your home experiences a surge of electricity. Each time a fuse burns out, it has to be replaced with the right type of fuse. This can be a tedious process for homeowners, and there is a risk of installing the wrong fuse and starting a fire. If you have a fuse box, we can upgrade it to a circuit breaker to save you time and money, and to increase the safety of your system.
You Have Installed a New Appliance
The addition of a new appliance such as a new HVAC system, a hot tub, refrigerator, or oven may make a panel upgrade necessary. Many older panels are simply not built to handle the amount of energy these appliances need to operate. If you are adding a new appliance, be sure to check with us to see if an upgrade is needed.
You Have New Family Members or Residents
Each individual in your home can use a surprising amount of energy. Adding just one person to your household can bump up your electrical needs beyond the current threshold of your panel. Even the addition of a new baby means more loads of laundry, a bottle warmer, and more lights on at night.
You Have an Older Panel
If your panel is between 20-25 years old, it is probably time for an upgrade. Most panels are only built to last for two decades, beyond which they will need to be replaced. Many homeowners choose to increase their panel service at the same time as their replacement to increase the number of circuits they have.
You Are Selling Your Home
A new electrical panel adds value to your home and looks great to potential home buyers and it can be a great incentive for a faster sale. If you are putting your house on the market and you want to make sure your home sells fast, invest in a panel upgrade.
You Are Adding Circuits
Many older homes in Guelph have an insufficient amount of outlets. This can be a frustrating problem, but it can be quickly fixed with a panel upgrade. Adding new electrical circuits is especially important if you are adding a new room to your home or finishing your basement.
You Have Insurance Problems
Many insurance companies will not insure homes that have fuse boxes. If you have been having trouble finding an insurance policy with your current electrical panel, you can call us for a panel upgrade as well as any other code corrections that you may need.
