An electric panel upgrade is just what it implies, a upgrade from the existing electrical panel. Nowadays with all the new appliances, electronics and technical devices we now have in our Raleigh area homes, we find that older homes are not wired to handle today’s power needs. Not only does your Raleigh home need an upgrade in your electric panel, but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel.
A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.
Panel upgrades require knowledge of electrical wiring, systems and function. Anything that deals with electricity should be handled by licensed electrician for safety and security. Our Raleigh electricians, at RJ Wiggins Electrical, are licensed professionals that guarantee quality work and assure that the required standards are fully met.
