An electric panel upgrade is just what it implies: it is an upgrade from the existing electrical panel. With all the new appliances and technical devices we now have in our homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a “service change” is required. This includes not only an upgrade in your electric panel, but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel.
Panel Change Out
A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker or fuse might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminium conductors were used.
