Many older homes in the Montreal area were built and wired when the electrical usage demands of the average family was at 47 Amps and 8200 Watts (data from 1960). To give you an idea of perspective, today's modern kitchen alone uses more than that. That's why you should consider an electrical panel upgrade in Montreal or in Laval.
As well, many older houses use fuse panels which don't have the capacity to meet the electricity demand. They may also have doubled up circuits, improper Amp rating fuses installed, or may be deteriorating simply due to age, all of which can present a high fire risk.
It is in situations like these that Electrika can help upgrade your old fuse panel to a modern circuit breaker panel, as well as install higher grade service delivery points, able to handle 200 or more Amps to meet the demand of present day electronics and computers.
Our panel upgrade service also includes secondary sub-panels and dedicated service delivery points for items such as outdoor and indoor pools, hot tubs, and high draw devices such as an electric welder in your garage. With Electrika's panel upgrade service, we can also identify and label all the circuits in your home for you on the breaker panel, as well as provide valuable education on proper circuit panel operation when a circuit breaker does trip.

Since today's homes require more power to operate efficiently, service upgrades to deliver more power are increasingly in demand. Upgrading from 100 to 200 Amps, or 200 to 400 Amps, will allow you to expand your electrical service usage safely and within Quebec's exacting building and electrical codes. As well, if your electrical utilities meter is older and unable to handle the load of your new service upgrade, we can replace your meter at the same time.
