Electrical Service Upgrades
Electrical Panel Upgrades, Whitby
At Wilson Electric Installations Inc, we’re constantly looking to innovate and evolve in the services we offer our customers. We have high expectations of our electricians, and personal development is always on our mind. Of course, life and electrical needs advance and change as well – the electrical circuitry from 20 or 30 years ago might no longer be sufficient for the greater demands of modern life. More powerful devices, the abundance of smartphones and other devices, the explosion of the internet, and more, all contribute to the greater demand for energy, and the strain that it puts on your property’s electrical systems. Electrical service upgrades can keep you up-to-date and well-prepared for these challenges.
Time to Upgrade
How long has it been since you moved into your house? When was the last time you had a certified electrician check on the safety of your electrical systems? You cannot overstate the sheer volume of electrical demands today compared with life in the 1990s and before. If you haven’t updated your electrical systems in that time, you could be risking the safety of yourself, your family, and your home. Our residential electrician service is ready and waiting to ensure your home is in line with modern safety regulations.
There are usually some tell-tale signs when you’re suffering from inadequate electrical performance, and at Wilson Electric Installations Inc, we can help draw attention to these shortcomings for you. You should keep an eye out for lights that flicker when a major appliance is turned on, the frequent tripping of circuit breakers (or when fuses blow), and especially if you find that your electrical panel is reaching worrying temperatures. Of course, this isn’t everything to watch out for – our licensed electrician teams can observe and evaluate your property to identify any areas of concern.
A complete electrical service upgrade is a big, complicated job that would require the services of an experienced team of electricians. For reasons relating to safety and compliance, we’d recommend a full system rewiring and check – particularly for older systems – but a partial rewiring is a possibility in some circumstances. Obsolete home electrical systems attempting to manage modern electricity demands is a major cause of household fires across Canada, so we feel it’s our duty to impress upon our clients the importance of keeping your home’s electrical system health up to scratch.
Electrical service upgrades vary in scope and cost, but perhaps the single most important upgrade you can make will be to your electrical panel. Investing in an electrical panel upgrade opens up new possibilities for the functionality of your home by increasing amperage. This allows for the introduction of newer appliances with higher energy demands, amongst other things. In simple terms, it gives your electrical system the capability to have more power to distribute across your home. Obviously, this isn’t a single easy fix for your outdated system, but this plays a key role in bringing your electrics into the modern world.
