Never Seem to Have Sufficient Electricity in Your Home?

How Much Does It Cost for an Electrical Panel Upgrade?



Not having sufficient power is not just inconvenient but it can also damage sensitive electronics due to frequent voltage drops. This means an efficiently working electrical system is vital to the safety of your home. Even when you have enough power, you could need extra outlets in order to avoid relying on numerous power strips and extension cords, which are also a potential safety hazard. You can also opt for an

electrical panel upgrade

.



The price of upgrading


The standard household power is 60 amps. However, many modern homes often need up to 200 amps in order to run the likes of televisions, air conditioners, computers, and high-tech home automation appliance. The cost of upgrading an existing electrical service panel can range between $800 – $3,000.



Rewire and save


Rewiring if often a messy and expensive job, however, with some pre-planning you can reduce disruptions and turn the job into an opportunity to install features which could increase the resale value of your home.



One of the best times to rewire is when there is a remodeling job happening, such renovating your kitchen or bathroom when subcontractors will be opening your walls. This way, your electrician will have more access to the walls, and refinishing then will be part of the remodeling project anyway.



Plan ahead


Structured wiring is an investment and a marketing advantage should you ever decide to sell your home. Structured wiring is a term for heavy-duty electrical and data cables which are designed to handle any of the latest entertainment and communication devices. One way to estimate how much the cost of wiring will be determined

by the square footage of your home, then multiply this by $2. If you think you need an
