Electrical Panel/ Meter Upgrades and Replacements

Electrical Panel/ Meter upgrades and replacements are sometimes a requirement. These units are the “central nervous system” for all of your homes’ electric. These systems are designed to last about 20 years but when was your house built? Have you made an addition to your home, renovated, installed a pool, or added outdoor lighting? Any of these could be reasons to upgrade your existing panel, meter, or add a sub-panel to your home.

Old main panels have limitations on available space to add circuits and may be maxed out. Many old panels do not meet today’s standards and simply need to be replaced. In fact, some panels are obsolete and have a history of being dangerous. Any breakers that may be needed in these panels will be a struggle to find and will be much more expensive than a modern panel.  

Outlet Installation

An electric service meter upgrade is often required to increase the capacity of the existing electrical service. With today’s new technical devices many older homes just don’t have sufficient power available to handle the new demand.  A service upgrade may include not only upgrading your electric panel, but upgrading your meter socket, the wire between the meter and panel, and sometimes the wire between the utility and the meter as well. 

Our panel and meter services include service upgrades, meter base repairs, meter base replacements, service mast repairs, weather head replacement, new grounding systems, we label household circuits on existing panels and can also install sub-panels which is sometimes a cheaper alternative to upgrading your main panel. 

It is also code standards that when a service upgrade is being performed that smoke/CO2 detectors are brought up to code.  Read more about Smoke Detectors and CO2 Detectors here.
