Electrical Service Upgrades

Electrical service upgrades are one of the most common inquiries that we get here at ABCO Electric. We are a licensed and certified electrical company and provide our electrical services for clients throughout the Suffolk County area. Many homes in Suffolk County were built 40 years ago or longer, which means their electrical systems are not as proficient as the ones built more recently.

In short, many homes were not built to handle today's electrical needs. This makes electrical upgrades not only helpful, but it is also a safety issue. Complete electrical service upgrades to your home are complex jobs that need to be handled by a professional for safety reasons. So please, give us a call today and receive a free estimate for our electrical service upgrades.

Electrical Service UpgradesThe Importance of Upgrading Your Electrical Service

An old and obsolete home electrical system trying to handle modern electrical capabilities can lead to a plethora of issues within the home. Among some of these issues include:

  • flickering lights when turning on a major appliance
  • tripping breakers and fuses blowing
  • too few outlets
  • overheating electrical panels
  • too many extension cords or don't have enough outlets to power all of your appliances

If you are having any of these issues then it is imperative to look into getting some sort of electrical upgrade. Also, an electrical service upgrade is necessary if you have recently installed an air conditioner, heat pump, or any other large appliance that draws a lot of electricity in your home. And of course, the addition of a new office, workshop or finished basement would require an upgrade as well.

An older home electrical system can be more than just a nuisance. It can be dangerous and lead to fires. Did you know that nearly half of the home fires in the United States can be pinned on the electrical system? That is why it is crucial to have it working properly. 

Common Electrical Service Upgrades

Have a home or building that is blowing electrical fuses, flickering lights?  This is a sign that you may need an electrical service upgrade. An electrical service upgrade refers to improvements made to the electrical system to increase the amount of power available to the structure. These upgrades may be necessary for a variety of reasons, such as adding new appliances or electrical devices that require more power than the existing system can provide, or to bring an older system up to current safety and code standards.

Abco Electric can expertly perform electrical service upgrades and the most common types are:

Upgrade Electric Panel: This involves replacing the main electrical panel, which distributes power throughout the home. A panel upgrade may be necessary if the existing panel is outdated or if it can't accommodate the increased electrical load of new appliances or devices.

Service entrance upgrade: This involves upgrading the wires and cables that bring electricity into the building from the utility company. A service entrance upgrade may be necessary if the existing wires are outdated or if they can't handle the increased electrical load.

Circuit upgrade: You may have enough power coming into the structure but if it isn't distributed properly you may require a circuit upgrade. By adding new circuits to the electrical system we can distribute power to different areas of the building to accommodate new appliances or devices.

This is not a do-it-yourself type of project as electrical service upgrades can be complex.  Always call an experienced, licensed electrician to perform these upgrades.
