Electrical Service Upgrades

Electrical Service Upgrades

Many homes in Central Virginia were built decades ago, which means their electrical systems were not built to handle the heavy electrical needs we have today. Many of the appliances we use today like water heaters, air conditioning units, hot tubs and home computers can put a strain on older electrical systems. An outdated electrical system trying to handle modern electrical needs can experience problems like flickering lights, tripping breakers or even an overheating electric panel. Having too few outlets for appliances can also lead to overloading circuits and can become a fire hazard.

An electrical service upgrade can increase the amount of power coming into the home but it is not a typical DIYer job. It usually involves upgrading the electrical service from 200 amps to 400 amps and requires the help and experience from professionals like the electricians of Bradley Mechanical. Our team of electricians can give your home’s electrical service a complete replacement. This type of upgrade includes the line side service entrance cable, the grounding and bonding system, meter base, load side service entrance cable and the electric panel.

Other than the obvious increase of power, there are other benefits from having an upgrade to your electrical service. Replacing a fuse box with a breaker panel makes your home safer. This could qualify you for a discount with your homeowner’s insurance. Even some electrical companies offer rebates and discounts for this kind of upgrade. An electrical service upgrade can also increase the value of your home as well as reduce your monthly electrical bill by running more efficiently.

If you have questions or would like to make an appointment for an electrical service upgrade, give Bradley Mechanical a call today at (804) 748-6728. Our team of electricians are ready to help answer your questions and give your home the upgrade it needs.
