Electrical Panel Upgrades

Electrical Panel Upgrades can greatly improve your current home. The electric panel is the central hub for your home—all electricity that comes into your home is routed through that little gray box in your basement or garage. When fuses are blown or circuits tripped, this is where you go to address the issue. But sometimes, your panel can malfunction, leaving you in the dark or presenting serious hazards. When this happens, it’s time to consider an electrical panel upgrade with JDV.

JDV is Philadelphia and the surrounding area’s foremost electrical panel upgrade expert and can help you choose the right equipment for your home’s unique setup. By assessing your home first, we’ll prevent future issues and provide you with reliable power and energy savings for years to come.

When You Need Electrical Panel Upgrades

As technology changes and the need for power adjusts, it’s important that your electrical panel keeps up. When it’s not properly installed or it’s out of date, you increase the risk of an emergency. Fortunately, there are warning signs and situations that can help determine your electrical panel upgrade needs, such as:

  • Flickering lights, especially when other appliances are on
  • Constant circuit breaker tripping
  • Panel does not connect with equipment
  • Frequent light bulb burn out
  • Recent home upgrades or remodeling
  • A house that is over 20 years old

Repair and Replace Circuit Breakers

Repair and Replace Circuit Breakers whenever you have a circuit breaker issue. Your circuit breaker is there for a purpose: if there is an overload or short circuit, then it will trip and interrupt service. Often times, this can happen regularly, and if there is enough of a frequency it could indicate that something is wrong with your setup or the panel itself. JDV Electric’s experienced professionals can repair and replace a circuit breaker in your home, or perform an inspection to determine whether or not there is an issue.

Electricity demands are higher today than ever before. That’s why it’s important to make sure your circuit breaker is functioning normally.

If You Repair and Replace Circuit Breakers, Benefits Include:

  • Protection of expensive electronics from power surges and damage
  • Prevention of valuable data loss from computers and other devices
  • Uninterrupted access to Internet and communication devices
  • No more trips into the basement to reset your breakers!

Many don’t realize it, but a fuse box serves the same role as a circuit breaker in preventing power overloads or shorts– it merely represents older technology that can be more inconvenient and dangerous. Normally present in older homes, fuse box’s are now underperforming with today’s current electrical needs.

When compared to fuse boxes, circuit breakers are:

  • Safer – The flick of a switch is much safer than removing and adding electrical equipment
  • Economical – Breakers require little maintenance or replacement parts
  • Efficient – By cutting off the power flow immediately, there’s no danger of energy loss
  • Convenient – When testing, you can trip and reset your breakers to find circuits

The energy need in today’s world is much higher than in the past. A circuit breaker can handle all of the demands in today’s society, such as computers, home entertainment, appliances, and even electric vehicles. Even if your home already has a circuit breaker it may be worth the upgrade to keep up with your home’s ever-growing energy demands.

Why Upgrade to an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter? On an annual basis, a large portion of the 40,000 fires in the U.S. are caused by the arc faults resulting from poor electrical wiring quality. Even though the NEC has had success in reducing this number, there is still a need to make sure your home is protected.

Wiring should not suffer problems such as:

  • punctured or damaged wire as a result of picture hanging or nails
  • amateur installed electrical equipment and wiring
  • cords caught in doors or under heavy equipment
  • obstructed outlets
  • natural deterioration and degradation from overuse
  • exposure to vents, sunlight, and other heat sources

If you’re still not sure whether or not you need an upgrade, JDV Electric can perform an inspection of your home electrical system to determine whether or not it meets your power needs. We’ll present you with our findings, and help determine an option to maximize convenience and affordability.
