Why Do You Need Panel Upgrades?

Old main panels are a problem to homeowners. These outdated panels either have limitations on available space to add circuits or have fuses—we know quite well that some insurance carriers refuse to insure a property that has fuses.


While some old panels have had circuits added and have maxed out (they mostly do when the original construction is completed), many old panels are of inferior quality and simply stop working. In other words, they need to be replaced. The Electrical Guy is the company to call for your panel upgrade concerns.


How You Can Benefit From a Panel Upgrade? 

Because modern homes use a number of energy-hungry appliances, a 200-amp panel is highly recommended. This size panel will adequately serve an average home and give room for some panel upgrades.


The total amperage of the branch circuit breakers serving the house should not exceed the amperage of the panel. The load needed to serve the electrical demands of the devices in the house dictates panel size.


Modern appliances, such as electric cooktops, ovens, clothes dryers, and air conditioners, as well as mixers, hair dryers, and so forth, can eat up panel space in a hurry. Multiple lights and most outlets can be run on a single circuit.


However, devices such as microwave ovens, cooktops, ovens, and clothes dryers require a dedicated circuit. We can work on your circuits to avoid problems in the future. Contact us in West Columbia, South Carolina to get started.
