Electrical Upgrades are important with the standard electricity usage changing over the years. The standard voltage for homes used to be 60 amps, but today modern homes require as much as 200 amps to run modern appliances such as air conditioners, computer equipment, high-definition televisions, and high-tech automation devices. Not having enough power to run your devices can exacerbate problems. Voltage drop-offs, for example, can damage your appliances, and using a number of extension cords and power strips can create safety hazards.
Using professional electrical service upgrades to increase electrical loads, however, can severely diminish these problems. In fact, if your home is more than 20 years old, your home is probably already due for an electrical service upgrade. Costs can range from $800 to $3,000 to upgrade existing electrical service panels to 100 or 200 amp panels, and for this to occur, walls have to be opened and new wires have to be run. This is a job for electrical contractor professionals, the price for opening walls, running new wires, connecting switches, outlets, and fixtures can be costly. However, if the repairs are performed during a remodel, when the walls are already open, these costs can be reduced.
