Inspections & Panel Upgrades


Upgrade your old electrical panel to one far more convenient plus built to higher safety standards than outdated fuse panels.

Old electrical panels need to be upgraded for several reasons. Your existing panel may not be big enough to support the electrical loads of the devices we use today, or the extra load on the circuits can overload the electrical system and finally your old panel may not be up to current code, and you can be denied insurance by your provider.

If the electrical system is 25 to 30 years old, the functionality of the electrical panel and circuit breakers down. Circuit breakers can start tripping for no reason, or worse yet, not tripping at all which can be catastrophic.
