Service Panel Upgrades

Your electrical service is where the power enters your home and goes to the meter base where Maritime Electric records your power usage. From there the power goes to your main electrical panel. It is then distributed out to smaller breakers and branch circuits throughout your home.                                                    

Why you should upgrade your electrical service and panel?

An electric service upgrade is often recommended or required to increase the capacity of the existing electrical service. With all the new appliances and technical devices we now have in our homes, we find that older homes just don’t have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a “service change” is required. This may include not only upgrading your electric panel, but upgrading your meter socket, the wire between the meter and panel, the wire between the utility and the meter and the grounding system as well. A panel upgrade or replacement is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.

Why should you upgrade from a fuse panel?

Insurance companies have issues with insuring homes with fuse panels sometimes they will recommend that the panel be changed out for a breaker panel system. A large problem with fuse panels is that when a 15A fuse blows, most people will put a 20A or even 25A to replace it and stop it from blowing. This is very dangerous because the wires are not rated for this amperage and could cause a fire!
