Panel/Service Upgrade

Old main panels have limitations on available space to add circuits or they have fuses (some insurance carriers will not insure a property that has fuses). Some old panels have had circuits added and have maxed out (most old panels are maxed out when the original construction was completed). Many old panels are of inferior quality and simply stop working and need to be replaced to avoid potential fires.

An electric service upgrade is often recommended or required to increase the capacity of the existing electrical service. With all the new appliances and technical devices we now available, we find that older homes just don’t have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a “service change” is required. This may include not only upgrading your electric panel, but:

  • Upgrading your meter socket.

  • The wiring between the panel, meter and city services.

  • The grounding system

  • Interior rewiring.

A panel upgrade or replacement is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel upgrade capacity.

The professional electricians at Zeus Electric only use the highest quality panels (load centers) for your panel change or upgrade. Every panel that we install has a 2 year warranty on the equipment but typically these panels should last up to 30-40 years without any problems. The bottom line is we make sure the heart of your electrical system, the electrical panel, will be trouble free for years and years to come.
