Main Electrical Panel Upgrades
As you add electrical appliances and circuits, you increase the demand on your power panel. Depending on when your home was built and how much electricity you use, your power panel may need to be replaced or a sub-panel added to keep up with demand.
Components of main electrical panels include: the housing unit, panel door, circuit breakers, hot bus bars, neutral bar, ground wire and a ground bar. Changing out or upgrading your electrical service is a job for an experienced electrician.
Call our experienced electricians at Mister Sparky, and we’ll go over your options with you.
At Mister Sparky, we will evaluate your sub panel repair needs, and service or install sub panels for your home. An electrical sub panel - also known as a service sub panel or circuit breaker sub panel - are often required to create new space for circuit breakers and to optimize your electrical system.
There are 2 major reasons why you might want to install a circuit breaker sub panel:
First, if the main service panel does not have enough space to hold circuit breakers for any new circuits that you intend to install. The circuit breaker sub panel can, in a sense, create new space for circuit breakers, but in a physically separate location.
Second, the sub panel provides a sense of clarity and separation of service from the main electrical panel. Usually, a circuit breaker sub panel will service one separate area that has a discrete function, such as a kitchen, shop, office, or addition. By installing a circuit breaker sub panel, you make it clear which circuit breakers and branch circuits apply to which parts of the house. It is easy to segregate the duties of all of the branch circuits, and to facilitate sub panel repairs, by keeping the circuits sequestered within the circuit breaker sub panel area. Electrical repairs & upgrades are not a DIY endeavor.
At Mister Sparky, we evaluate your needs for any renovation project to determine the feasibility of installing sub panels, and assess your sub panel repair issues.
