Is it time for a power or panel upgrade?

If your home is older or the electrical system is outdated, the answer is likely yes. According to the US Census Bureau, more than half of existing homes were constructed before the 1970s. That means they were built long before any of today’s modern electronic conveniences were invented. These older homes were built with few circuits and only 50 to 60 amps of electrical service, while today’s homes require at least 150 amps because we’re more dependent on electricity than ever before.

MRE power/panel upgrades

We live in a plugged-in world.

Most homes have at least one computer, several televisions, a stereo system, cell phones, clock radios—the list goes on and on. This modern electronic equipment can quickly overload an aging system, causing serious problems for your home. An undersized panel may pose a safety risk because an overloaded system can result in a fire. If your fuses blow when too many appliances are in use or the lights dim when an appliance is turned on, these are indications that your current power panel circuitry is unable to handle your electrical demands.

An electrical panel upgrade from the professionals at M.R. Electricians will allow you to use your appliances safely while protecting expensive electronic equipment such as flat screen TVs, laptop computers, and kitchen gadgets.
