Today's modern lifestyle is fast-paced, and technologically advanced products are introduced into the marketplace almost every day. While these innovations have helped dramatically improve personal productivity and provide countless entertainment options, the increasing demand for electricity has outstripped the capacity of the electrical service in many homes and businesses.
If you own an older home, it is important to have the electric panel and wiring inspected by an expert electrician to ensure it is up to code and capable of safely servicing an ever-expanding electric load. If you have a panel that still uses ceramic fuses, you could be putting your family at risk and living with an unsafe situation.
An electrician can assess the panel and wiring to ensure there is enough power in your home to meet current and future needs. In most cases, a 100 amp panel is a minimum requirement, which is usually mandated by national electric codes for newer homes.
Older homes rarely have the capacity to provide enough electricity to safely power today's modern conveniences. Consider all of the different devices driven by electricity that didn't exist 50 years ago.
Whether the need is created by excess electric load or a lack of receptacles in a room, a contractor who provides complete electrical services can install upgraded wiring, panels and fixtures to meet a constantly growing demand for additional power.
