Reasons You May Need an Electrical System Upgrade

As times have changed and we have become increasingly reliant on electronics – including televisions, computers, gaming systems, and more –homeowners have noticed a considerable strain on their electrical systems. Many of the houses in Annapolis and the surrounding area were built 30 or more years ago and cannot handle the stress of today’s electrical load. Therefore, upgrading the electrical systems within these homes is necessary for both practical and safety reasons. Colonial Electric has been serving the community since 1970, and we are experts on all the electrical advancements made in the last five decades. We recommend upgrading your electrical system if:

  • Your home is old – Obsolete electrical systems cannot sustain the needs of today’s technological world. If your home is operating with a 60-amp electrical panel, you likely need an electric service upgrade. Colonial Electric’s technicians can improve your home’s electrical capacity and safety by installing a 200- or 400-amp electrical panel.
  • Your lights regularly flicker – If your lights flicker every time you turn on a major appliance, there is a good chance your electrical system is overloaded.
  • Your home has multiple two-pronged outlets – As part of our electric service upgrade, we can provide three-pronged outlets to protect against shocks.
  • You recently installed new appliances or home additions – If you have installed a new HVAC system or built a new wing on your home, upgrade your electrical system to ensure smooth, safe operations for all areas of your house.

How We Upgrade Your Electrical System

Upgrading your electrical system is not a run-of-the-mill project for any average homeowner. It is a complex, disruptive process that requires precision and specific knowledge. Trust the expert technicians at Colonial Electric to do it for you rather than attempting it on your own. We have extensive experience and training, so we will protect your home and your safety while also completing the task in a fraction of the time it would take you. We will visit your home to evaluate the condition of your existing electrical panel as well as the number of electrical circuits you have in your home. To devise a plan for your electric service upgrade, we will consider your home’s age, existing circuit wiring, and how the new service will be fed from the electric company, among other factors. We will then replace the electric service panel including the service cable and grounding if needed. If necessary, we can even relocate the electrical panel or meter. Our team has all the necessary resources to complete the project.
