An electrical upgrade is a thorough process to change your home’s electrical capability. A modern home has a standard of 200 amps. However, depending on your electrical needs, Custom Electrical Services may recommend you go higher than that.
Technology has advanced at a remarkable pace. Most old homes were only built with 60 or 100-watt amp services. You may also need a service upgrade if you have new electronics. During an upgrade, a residential electrician will take care of the necessary permits required to do the work, contact the utility company to temporarily cut off your power and arrange for the necessary inspections. An upgrade isn’t a quick project. It’s a complex job that will include adding a new amp panel, wiring and equipment.
The level of amp service your home requires depends on your electrical needs. A Custom Electrical Services electrician will look at your current capacity and the electronics you have in order to make a customized recommendation for your home.
There are a few inconvenient ways to find out if you have a high enough electrical service. Has your circuit breaker cut off power to your home? That’s because you’re using more electricity than you have service for. The age of your home can also give you an idea of your service level. The older the house, the lower the amp service.
No. This isn’t like changing a light fixture. You will need a licensed residential electrician to do the work for you. Trying it on your own will break local laws, put your home in danger and could even cost you your life.

Do you hear buzzing from your panel box? Is your fuse box outdated? Are the circuit breakers tripping and shutting off your power when you’re trying to do laundry?
If so, your electrical service needs to be upgraded. A tripped system isn’t only inconvenient – it can also ruin your electronics.
Most electrical systems in older homes cannot handle modern needs. In order to upgrade, you’ll need a residential electrician to handle receiving the necessary permits, make sure the power is cut off so the work can safely be done, conduct the upgrade and then make sure the project passes an inspection. Trying to do it on your own is dangerous to your home and personal safety. Electrical work is dangerous – leave it to the professionals.
