Service Panel Upgrade On Long Island

Safe, Effective Solutions For Older Homes

As technology has advanced through the 20th and 21st centuries, the need for more advanced electrical panels has grown as well. Modern day appliances, such as washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, computers, state-of-the-art lighting, and more, require modern electrical systems that can handle the daily demands of all our appliances and electronics.

Homes built before the 1960s typically have older electrical service panels or fuse boxes that are not capable of keeping up with modern electrical needs. If you have an older home, a service panel upgrade can help you safely and effectively enjoy all your electrical appliances. Universe Home Services offers top-quality service panel upgrades on Long Island and throughout the surrounding areas. We have more than 65 years of industry experience and are well-versed in providing reliable electric solutions for homes of all sizes.

SHould You Upgrade Your Service Panel?

It may seem as though your home is perfectly capable of handling all your electrical needs. You rarely have problems with your service panel, so why upgrade it? In reality, an outdated service panel or fuse box will probably end up costing you more time, money, and stress than a service panel upgrade. When fuses burn out, they must be individually replaced. In contrast, modern service panels are much easier to reset with a simple flip of a switch. Additionally, you may want to upgrade a too-small service panel.

It’s probably time to upgrade your service panel if:

  • Your home was built before the 1960s
  • Your home still has a fuse box
  • You want to upgrade from a 100-amp panel to a 200-amp panel
  • The electrical panel is warm (a sign of overloading)
  • The panel trips often
  • Your lights frequently flicker or dim
  • There’s a burning smell coming from the panel
  • You have to use a lot of power strips to avoid tripped breakers
  • Your appliances do not run at full capacity
  • You want to upgrade your appliance or add to your home

It’s always best to leave all electrical services, including service panel upgrades, to the professionals. Only a trained, certified electrician will be able to safely and effectively upgrade your home’s panel and make sure that you can start enjoying all of the electrical power you need.
