Since you moved into your home, how many new demands have you put on the electrical supply coming into your house? There are many ways to overtax your power supply, including:
-adding a hot tub (a major “power hog”).
-installing more electrical outlets.
-plugging in a second refrigerator.
-installing a larger air conditioner.
-finishing your basement.
-enlarging a room.
-building on a whole new addition.
If you have done any of these, your power panel may be in need of a major facelift.
The power panel (also known as the circuit breaker box or electrical panel) is the heart and soul of your home’s power supply. As you add electrical appliances and circuits, you increase the demand on this supply. 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.
Don’t wait for the sizzling sound of scorched and overloaded wiring to alert you. Find out if your power panel needs a facelift. Call us today at 618.988.8731
