Are your circuit breakers tripping? Are fuses blowing? Are you planning major renovations, such as redoing your kitchen or adding additional rooms? Is your home 20 years or older? If so, now may be a good time to upgrade the electrical system of your home.
Many older homes still have fuse boxes, which are inadequate for todays needs. Thirty years ago the average home was built with a 60-100 Amp service entrance with a small fuse panel. Today's average home is equipped with a 200 Amp service entrance and a 40 circuit electrical panel. In 1960 the power consumed in the average home was approximately 47 Amps/8200 Watts. Today's average kitchen consumes more than this. Older fuse panels cannot support the demand of the day. They often have circuits doubled up, incorrect fuse sizes, old and deteriorated parts. These inadequacies can potentially lead to a fire. Installing a new service entrance and upgrading your fuse box to modern day circuit breakers can eliminate this possible dangerous situation.

Since today's homes require more power to operate efficiently, service upgrades are increasingly in demand. A 100 amp to 200 amp or a 200 amp to 400 amp will give you increased power, which can acommodate electric heating, swimming pools, outdoor hot tubs and other high powered appliances that use more energy to operate.
