Service Panel Upgrades: Why They Matter

The Importance of Service Panel Upgrades

Service panel upgrades are a crucial aspect of maintaining a safe and efficient electrical system in your home or business. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, the functionality and safety of your electrical infrastructure depend on the condition of your service panel. In this section, we will explore why service panel upgrades are essential and how Leopard Electric can help you achieve a more reliable and secure electrical system.

Ensuring Safety

Safety is paramount when it comes to electrical systems. Outdated or overloaded service panels can pose serious safety risks, including electrical fires and electrical shocks. Upgrading your service panel ensures that your electrical system meets current safety standards and reduces the risk of hazardous electrical incidents.

Meeting Increased Electrical Demands

As technology advances and your electrical needs grow, your service panel may struggle to accommodate the increased demand. An overloaded service panel can lead to frequent circuit overloads and tripped breakers. By upgrading your service panel, you can enjoy a more robust electrical system that can handle modern electrical loads, providing a more reliable power supply.

Enhancing Energy Efficiency

Outdated service panels are often less energy-efficient. Upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient panel can reduce energy wastage, leading to lower electricity bills and a reduced environmental footprint. Improved energy efficiency is not only cost-effective but also contributes to a greener and more sustainable future.

Supporting Home and Business Expansion

If you plan to expand your home or business, a service panel upgrade may be necessary to accommodate the increased electrical demand. Upgrading your service panel proactively ensures that your electrical system is prepared for future growth, preventing the need for additional upgrades down the line.

Adhering to Electrical Codes and Regulations

Local electrical codes and regulations are in place to ensure the safety and compliance of electrical systems. Service panel upgrades often involve bringing your electrical system up to code, ensuring that it meets all the requirements. Compliance with electrical codes is integral to Leopard Electric’s work.

To upgrade an electrical panel to 200 amp service, first obtain the necessary permits. Turn off the power, remove the old panel, and install the new 200 amp panel. Connect the new service wires from the meter to the panel, and then reconnect the branch circuits. Inspect the grounding system and ensure it meets code requirements. After everything is connected, have the installation inspected and approved before restoring power. It is highly recommended to hire a licensed electrician for this job due to its complexity and safety requirements.

 While some homeowners may have the skills to upgrade their service panel themselves, it is generally not recommended due to the complexity and danger involved. Electrical panel upgrades require proper permits, adherence to local codes, and a thorough understanding of electrical systems. Hiring a licensed electrician ensures the job is done safely and correctly.

The cost to upgrade an electric service panel varies depending on the complexity of the job, the region, and the electrician's rates. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between $1,500 and $3,000 for a complete upgrade, including permits, materials, and labor.

A service upgrade involves increasing the overall capacity of your electrical system, including upgrading the main service line, meter, and sometimes the panel, to handle higher electrical loads. A panel upgrade typically refers to replacing an old or inadequate electrical panel with a new one but does not necessarily increase the overall capacity of the electrical service. A service upgrade is more comprehensive and often includes a panel upgrade as part of the process.

To upgrade an electrical service panel, obtain the necessary permits, turn off the power, and remove the old panel. Install the new panel, connect the main service wires and branch circuits, and ensure the grounding system is up to code. After making all connections, have the installation inspected and approved before restoring power. Hiring a licensed electrician is strongly advised.
