What Is An Electrical Panel Upgrade?

Electrical Panel Upgrade, or heavy up, is essentially an upgrade for your power panel. It enables more power to surge through the currents of your home, creating the ability to utilize the most electricity possible, without the dangers of overloading your system.

What Does A Heavy Up Entail?

Your electrical panel heavy up can include a range of upgrades. Your technician will be able to assess your personal need and meet it right away. Some upgrades are as simple as adding on a few circuit breakers to your existing box. Often times you can simply expand the box with a sub-panel. If you’re in need of a more complex upgrade, this could include replacing a fuse box or an old panel with one that is built for a higher energy capacity. At F.H. Furr, your upgrade will fit precisely to your needs!

How Long Does A Heavy Up Take To Complete?

This all depends on the particulars of your job. Simple things like, adding breakers to an existing panel is generally fairly quick, often taking up less then an hour of time. Even installation of a brand new sub-panel shouldn’t take more than a few hours. A more detailed fix could take up some of the day, such as replacing the fuse box or circuit main. These projects are designed to fit your personal needs and schedule.

Does A Heavy Up Improve Electrical Safety?

When you have too many devises sucking power from an insufficient source, you’re in danger of an overload on the electrical system. This could lead to other electrical problems and safety concerns. Using an outdated system is certainly not recommended for electrical safety. When you have an electrical panel upgrade, you’ll never need to worry about a lack of power to operate your home. You can use as much as you need–safely!
