Will County Electrical Panel Upgrades
Repairing or rebuilding your circuit breakers can prevent unnecessary downtime and in many cases is more economical than replacing your existing equipment. Our experience ensures that we can perform top quality repairs, modifications, rebuilding and maintenance on most circuit breakers and larger frame molded case breakers of all brands and vintages.
A Will County panel upgrade is just what it implies. It is an upgrade from the existing electrical panel. With all the new appliances, and technical devices we now have in our Will County homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a "service change" is required. This includes not only an upgrade in your electric panel. but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel.
Panel Change Out
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.
When you plugged in your new refrigerator, cranked up the air conditioner, or turned on the light to read this report, you probably didn't give a lot of thought to the wires carrying the electricity.
Few people do. After all, your home's electrical system is hidden in the walls. Will County homeowners generally know so little about electricity that they tend to take potential problems too lightly or overlook them altogether.
But you need to pay attention to your home wiring no matter when your home was built or where you live, especially if you live in an older home. Thirty-nine thousand house fires and 350 deaths each year in the U.S. are caused by faulty home wiring and other electrical equipment, such as extension cords, lighting, and plugs, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
