Electrical Panel Upgrades

Electrical Panel Upgrades

Have you been told by your insurance adjuster that they won’t write you an insurance policy because of your current electrical panel?

Are you thinking of adding a piece of machinery in your garage to enjoy your favorite hobby, such as woodworking or working on cars, but your current electrical panel is unable to handle it?

You may need to have a new panel upgrade done by Best Electric Service if you have an old, unsafe, or small panel.

Some signs that you may need a panel upgrade are flickering lights and breakers that trip constantly.

An electrical panel is basically the heart of your electrical system. If your panel (heart) were to quit working, then you would have a lot of problems to worry about.

All the electricity that comes into your home first comes from the utility department, then to your electric service. It then goes to your electric panel (heart). After that, electricity is directed into wires to different locations in your home giving you power where you need it most.

There's a chance you don't have a panel with circuit breakers, but instead have an outdated fuse box. In some cases it is even worse: an electrical panel that has lost its UL approval because it has been found to cause fires.

On more than one occasion, there have been manufacturers that went out of business because they were closed down by UL for making inferior products. It is unfortunate that thousands of homes still have these panels and breakers.

If there is ever a problem, circuit breakers are designed to shut off in a fraction of a second. They keep you and your family from becoming victims of electrocution, electric shock and house fires. With older breakers, a lot of times they will not trip under a test load for at least one minute and some won't even turn at all.

There are many reasons problems arise from electrical panels. Here a few examples:

  • Loose connections
  • Burnt connections
  • Double tapped circuits
  • Old, outdated fuses
  • Not UL approved

What Others Say About Us

I was extremely pleased with the work Joe did for me this past week and wanted to say something positive so others would consider him for jobs.  But the rating has to be done through a google account, and I do not want to have an account with them - the information required is personal, and I have no doubt sold immediately to places that do solicitations.  But if there is a way to insert my comments, so they contribute to the rating system, here they are. I wanted to say this:  I have an older home and a not-so-robust budget.   Joe inspired confidence with his knowledge, solved a sticky problem for me with my new range, left everything looking good and accommodated my work schedule.  His fees were competitive and, most importantly,  I am confident the work will stand up to the test of time.  I would recommend him highly to anyone asking for an electrician.

I hired Joe Bartels and Best Electric Service to add a 240V circuit for a hot tub at my home. I couldn't have been happier with their thoroughness and customer focus. They worked with our installation schedule, listened to my input and were creative in routing the final conduit. Quick and very professional. They have my highest recommendation!

I called Best Electric for a problem I was having with non-working pendant lights. Joe promptly called back to schedule an appointment. He arrived on time, was straight forward with the pricing and was able to diagnose and fix my problem in a relatively short time. While he was at my home he also was able to hang a new chandelier. I would highly recommend Best Electric!
