Heavy Ups and Panel Box Upgrades

The modern household draws much more electricity and wattage than it did a few decades ago. Central air conditioning, modern appliances like dishwashers, and computers can place too much stress on an old circuit panel. Upgrading a panel box, also known as a “heavy up”, accommodates the demands of these appliances, and greatly reduces the chance of an electrical fire or other disaster.

TriStar Electric can handle your panel box upgrade, which requires a permit to be filed. After the work is complete, you can expect a follow up visit from a county to ensure everything has been handled correctly. TriStar’s electricians have the field experience and training to perform panel box upgrades safely and efficiently.

Before we start the actual panel box upgrade, we will conduct a detailed examination of your home’s electrical system. The current panel box will be examined to ensure it is safe to use until the new panel box is installed. We also discuss your energy needs, and make sure that we answer all of your questions before we create a proposal for your review.

TriStar Electric recommends and installs top quality Square D and QO panel boxes and circuit breakers, which have a reputation of being the best in the industry. In addition to panel box upgrades, we also can replace circuit breakers, breaker boxes, and subpanels. Regardless of what your home requires, count on our experts to provide the correct solution.

After we have collected the right permits and the equipment has been secured, the install begins. We will prepare the area in your home where the new panel box will be installed. The entire process will be handled in a professional, efficient manner. Once everything has been installed, we will properly identify and label each circuit to meet code requirements. Removal of the old panel box and other equipment is performed at no cost to you.

Your new panel box and circuit breaker will be able to supply the correct amount of electricity to your home – and you will not have to worry about electrical fires or losing power. In the event that the county inspector should require additional work to be performed, we will take care of it as soon as possible.
