Electrical Service Upgrade

Electrical Service Upgrade

Electrical Service UpgradeThe term electrical service upgrade is used by contractors and local utilities to reference the main power supply to your home. There are several different types of services. The minimum requirement by insurance companies to a residential house is 100 Amp. If your home requires more power there are also 125 or 200 amp electrical service options. The main reason a service upgrade is required is because your home does not have sufficient power or sufficient space for growth in your current panel. This is normally due to the fact that electrical services were originally set up as 60 amps in early construction of new homes. Now it is most common to see 100 amps.

An electrical service upgrade or electrical repair may be required due to storm damage or simply the age of your current service. Any electrical service upgrade or electrical service repair will require a permit and inspection from the electrical safety authority. (ESA) There is a misconception by home owners that this type of work is covered by your local utility. Unfortunately it is not; your local utility is only required to provide you with a service line to your home. It is the home owner's responsibility for all electrical equipment attached to your home. It is certainly recommended that your hire a fully licensed electrical contractor to make sure this job is done properly.
