Electrical Service Upgrades in Upper Darby

Quality Upgrades You Can Depend On

Electricity keeps your house running and it’s easy to take your electrical service for granted until you lose power. Everyone understands the inconvenience that occurs during that occasional storm or blackout, but what if those situations start occurring on a regular basis? Our Upper Darby electricians at Martella Electric can prevent this by upgrading the electrical service to your business or home.

Benefits of an Electrical Service Upgrade

Whether you experience regular or intermittent problems with your electrical service, there are a wide range of problems that can be solved with a service upgrade. Older circuit breakers can typically fail to protect an overloaded circuit when they don’t trip correctly and allow damage to occur. Furthermore, heat can build up during a lengthy overload episode and overtaxed wiring can result in damage. Therefore upgrading a dated electrical system can not only prevent problems and protect property but also preserve the safety of family or employees.

Aside from the safety issue, upgrading a home electrical service will enhance your lifestyle. An upgrade will give you adequate power to use multiple electrical appliances and modern conveniences without tripping circuit breakers. In addition, an upgraded electric service will protect your expensive appliances and electrical devices. Defective wiring can harm or ruin sensitive electronic equipment and make it necessary to repair or replace the damaged items.

Helping You Decide When a New Electrical Panel Is Needed

It’s easy to become accustomed to the abnormal behavior of an electrical system over time. However this is a hazard that can result in a potentially terrible outcome if left unchecked. As a result, you should look for the signs that a new electrical panel may be warranted.

Our Upper Darby electricians’ recommend an electrical panel replacement if:

  • Your fuses frequently blow out or circuit breakers trip
  • You have old-fashioned electrical wiring
  • You require new electrical outlets that must be run for modern appliances
  • You experience regular damage to sensitive devices like computers
  • You experience frequent brownouts in your home or business
  • You are interested in expanding your living or office area

Upgrading for Convenience

With today’s electrical appliances and devices, upgrading to a 200 amp electrical service only makes sense.

Among the many benefits of such an upgrade include:

  • Greater capacity: An upgrade to a 200 amp service will allow you to accommodate more devices at the same time. With today’s traditionally limited 100 amp services, it is often necessary to perform a careful analysis to determine whether your electrical system can accommodate new devices such as an air-conditioner, hot tub, or refrigerator. But when you have 200 amp electrical service, you have plenty of capacity. As a result, you enjoy the ability to operate all of the lighting, equipment, and appliances necessary to keep your home or business operating smoothly without a concern of balancing energy to avoid an overload. In addition, when new technological advances present opportunities to purchase innovative appliances and equipment, you will be ready by already having the service required to operate those advanced devices.
  • More flexibility: Upgrading your electrical service to 200 amps will give you substantially more flexibility than you would ever have with a lower capacity system. An upgrade to a 200 amp service will give you the necessary flexibility and convenience of operating any piece of equipment without giving it a second thought.
  • Greater safety: Upgrading your electrical service will typically give you the opportunity to improve the overall safety of your electrical system. Electrical systems are seldom maintained adequately, resulting in deterioration and unsafe conditions. A 200 amp electrical service upgrade can help reduce the overall demands on an existing electrical system and reduce the possibility of a malfunction. Additionally, such an improvement can often lead to an increased property values which is always a welcome result.
