Do Amps Matter? Need To Upgrade Your Electric Service Panel To Handle More Amps?
Amps simply measure the amount of electricity that can flow through your electric circuits. Your home is setup with different circuits for different areas of the house.
Many of the older breaker panels cannot handle the demand of modern appliances and will throw breakers when you are trying to use too many things at once that have a larger than normal electric load.
If you are having trouble with breakers throwing when trying to make coffee and using your electric clothes dryer your problem could be a lower than necessary service panel.
Upgrading to a 200 Amp Service Panel
Upgrading your service panel to a 200 Amp panel can help you utilize your electricity safer and relieve the problem of breakers being thrown frequently.
Your home should not have an electrical circuit that is sustaining loads over 80% of their capacity. If you have a 100 Amp system you should not be drawing more than 80 amps at a time.
Call us to talk to a professional
Running your air conditioner, lights, and a dryer could easily be drawing 80 amps so it is commonly recommended to have a 200 amp service panel in most homes. Call us and we will have a professional let you know.
Can I upgrade my service panel myself?
Call a professional electrician. This isn't like changing out a ceiling fan, it is very dangerous and could easily have permanent or deadly consequences from trying to upgrade your service panel yourself.
Upgrading from 100 amp to 200 amp service should only be done by a professional electrician.
