If you are planning a remodeling project, updating your electrical
system should be factored in. The electrical system that was adequate twenty years ago just cannot handle the electronic equipment
and appliances we use today. Even if you are not adding or remodeling an entire room, updating the lighting in your kitchen
or family room can improve both the function and appearance of the space.
We tend to ignore our electrical system.
We plug in an appliance, add a light fixture or flip a switch and expect power. We take our electric system for granted until
Like everything else in the house, ongoing maintenance is required. Some older homes are still running on
screw fuses and have limited space for adding additional circuits. Upgrading your electrical service to a circuit breaker
panel will provide more available space, plus the added amperage for future loads.
If you find yourself continually
searching for another outlet, using extension cords to reach outlets, or buying adapters in order to use your equipment, it
is time to have your electrical situation checked out.
If you’re frustrated by inadequate lighting, have problems with
flickering lights, or find your light bulbs have a short life span, your system might be in need of upgrading.
the safety considerations of updating your electrical system is of primary importance, an additional benefit is the likely
increase you will experience in energy efficiency.
You want your electrical system to handle both your needs today
and ten years from now. Our society is becoming more automated and electricity is our main power source.
You do not
need to know and understand all the ins and outs of the electrical system in your home or place of business. You just need
to contact a qualified electrician to check out and perform any maintenance or upgrades required.
