What does a service upgrade involve?

A service upgrade usually involves replacing the electrical panel, upgrading wiring, and ensuring the new system can handle increased electrical demand safely.

Do I need a permit for an electrical service upgrade?

Yes, most jurisdictions require a permit for electrical service upgrades. Triplex Electric manages the permitting process to ensure compliance with local codes.

Will an electrical service upgrade increase my utility bills?

No, an upgrade doesn't directly increase bills. It allows you to safely handle more devices, but energy consumption depends on how those devices are used.

Is a 100-amp service upgrade enough for my home?

100-amp upgrades may be sufficient for smaller homes with low power demands. Larger homes or those with high-demand appliances often require 200-amp service or more.

What safety measures should be taken during an upgrade?

Licensed electricians follow strict protocols, including shutting off power, grounding, and testing circuits to ensure safe installations and compliance with codes.

Can I stay in my home during an electrical service upgrade?

Yes, but expect temporary power outages. Our electricians work efficiently to minimize disruptions and restore power as quickly as possible.

Will upgrading my electrical service improve my home's safety?

Yes, new panels are designed to handle increased loads safely, reducing fire risks and improving grounding and circuit breaker reliability.

How often should electrical service be inspected or upgraded?

It's recommended to have your electrical service inspected every 10 years for owner-occupied homes or after major renovations. Upgrades should be considered if the system shows signs of wear or can't handle new demands.
