CALL ELECTRICAL PROS TO UPGRADE YOUR ELECTRICAL PANEL IN LAWRENCEVILLE, DACULA, BRASELTON AND THE DULUTH, GA AREA.
Most homes today are outfitted with several appliances. At a minimum, most people have a refrigerator, stove and a microwave. Some people have dishwashers, garbage disposals and several televisions. Older homes were built with the idea that only a minimal amount of appliances would be in a home. Because of this, most people who live in older homes have problems with their circuit breakers. If your home is several years old, you might notice that you lose power when you turn on several electronic devices at once. You might also notice that your lights flicker and that your appliances struggle to reach their maximum power level.
You can get the maximum performance from your appliances by getting an upgrade of the panel’s capacity to 200 or 400 amps. When you get an electrical panel upgrade, the electrician will replace your old circuit breaker with a new more efficient circuit breaker. The wiring and meter socket are also likely to be checked. A professional electrical contractor should only perform the job of updating electrical panels. An untrained person who tampers with electrical panels can damage the wiring and possibly suffer an electric shock.
If you plan on purchasing high energy products in the future, such as an electric car or home theater system, you should definitely upgrade your electrical panels. Connecting high-energy appliances to an old circuit breaker will overload the breaker. When you hire an electrical contractor, you can be assured that all your electronic devices will perform at their maximum power without tripping a fuse. Hiring a professional electrical contractor to replace your breakers will help prolong the life of your electronic devices.
