The role of a service panel in your home’s electrical system cannot be overemphasized. It distributes electricity to everything in the home, from lighting to the air conditioning system. And through circuit breakers, it cuts power when the level of electricity is dangerous for your appliances.
When your Austin home was built, the service panel was required to power a few lights, sockets, and appliances. With new devices and increasing energy demands, your panel cannot effectively handle your electrical needs, malfunctioning and tripping frequently or failing to trip, which can result in fire or electrical shock. When your service panel loses its capacity to distribute power and protect your devices and your home, it’s time for an upgrade.

Meet the power demands
When upgrading your service panel, foremost on our minds is overall performance and safety. For these reasons, we often upgrade to a 200 amp panel, which is the standard for most homes. We may need to install a panel with a high capacity if your need requires. In most cases, we also replace or repair the following:
grounding, bonding system
Surge protection devices
We may also need to install the service panel in a new location if the house now has a different structure. Whatever the situation, we’ll assess it and fix it correctly.
