Electrical panel and service upgrades are crucial to the safety of your home and business while potentially increasing the resale value of your property.
As technology evolves and the use of electrical gadgets expands, older electrical systems may not be able to handle the increased demand. If your power supply is insufficient or unstable, or when planning an electrical system extension, you may need to upgrade your electrical panel.
From planned wiring changes or building projects to difficulties with your existing electrical system, a certified electrician can accurately assess your electrical needs and evaluate your current electrical panel. Leading Edge Electric will then communicate the best options for the most economical and safe solution.
Your Leading Edge electrician will give you an estimate of the project timeline and completion cost after viewing the panel and discussing the project with you. Prior to beginning work on the project, your electrical contractor will obtain the necessary city or county building permits. Using a licensed and insured professional electrician can provide you peace of mind that the job will be completed appropriately, safely, and with adherence to current building codes.
Electrical service upgrades allow more power to come into your home or building. Older construction was built based on the electrical needs of that era. While our appliances, light bulbs and fixtures have become more energy efficient, we have added computers, smart devices, and many other items that require electricity to function. Many older buildings were designed for an electrical flow of only 50, 60, or if you are lucky, 100 amps. Leading Edge Electric will determine what amperage upgrade is appropriate for your situation, safely bringing your service into the 21st century and compliant with current building codes.
No matter how urgent an electrical repair may seem, it is extremely dangerous to attempt solving electrical problems without professional training. If you or someone else are not injured or killed during your attempt, there is still a great chance that something was done incorrectly, posing a dangerous risk to you, your home, or your family. Faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. To ensure the safety of your home and loved ones, always rely on a licensed professional for any electrical services. Hire a professional. Your life and the safety of your property depend on it.
