Why Upgrade Your Electrical Panel?

Your electrical panel provides the flow of electricity to your house. Older houses in Ottawa were built using 100amp circuit breakers are although safe to use they can’t supply enough electricity to renovated modern homes.  Upgrading your electric panel and circuit breakers will allow running more electricity in your home.  That could be for appliances, fridges, air conditioning, hot tubs, saunas or laundry machines.  We can modernize your home with 200 AMP breakers or reduce the stress on your utilities by installing a sub-panel. 

How to Know If You Need A Panel Upgrade?

Older panels that are operating at capacity will let you know they need to be replaced by the following common symptoms.  Frequent tripping of the circuit breaker when using electricity should be a sign to think about investing in a new 200 amp panel. Flickering lights, buzzing and poor functioning appliances are all signs that you need a panel upgrade.

How Much Does Electrical Panel Upgrade Cost In Ottawa?

Electrical panels retail for anywhere from $300-1000 depending on the features and requirements of your home.  Installations cost vary depending on the location of the panel (garage vs. basement), the size of the project (how is the wiring?), lastly on the condition of the existing site conditions.  Our electricians will assess your home’s electrical needs and provide an estimate based on your home.

 

Choosing Your Electrical Panel 

Residential grade panels are made from aluminum and lack features like the ability to include whole-home surge protection.  Mid-tier panels include copper plates and steel frames with decent circuitry and breakers.  The top of the line electrical panels are silver plated and come equipped with surge protection features.  Let us assess the needs of your home and match your electrical panel to suit your needs and budget. 

Repairing Electrical Panels Inside The Home 

The electrical panel is the heart of every home’s electrical system. It’s where all your essential circuits and components are stored, from lighting to heating and cooling systems. That being said, you should always have it checked by a professional electrician before attempting any repairs yourself! Working with electricity can be dangerous and there are risks involved that can cause serious injury.  Choosing Ottawa Electric Serice to repair your electrical panel means you’ll get a licensed electrician to conduct an assessment on your panel without putting anyone in harm’s way.
