5-2015-1If you have discovered that your electric panel is just not enough to keep up with your electricity demands, you need to look into have a panel upgrade. The process sounds very technical, and it is to some extent, but when you leave it in the hands of a trained electrician in Fort Lauderdale, it is a breeze. You will be able to run your microwave, toaster and have your laptop plugged in without trying to figure out which one to unplug. If you are not sure an upgrade is necessary, give Elcon Electric a call.

The following are also good reasons to upgrade an electric panel.

1-If your home is older than 50 years, you probably need an upgrade. 50 years ago we didn’t have nearly as many electrical appliances and gadgets. The homes were simply not built to accommodate the electrical demand we need today. Installing new outlets can help give you flexibility, but you need to make sure your panel can handle the additional outlets. This is something a Fort Lauderdale electrician will investigate.

2-Outdated panels can pose safety risks. Over the past 20 years, panels have been redesigned to be safer. There are plenty of panels that have been recalled, especially those that were installed in the 1980s. If you are unsure about the type of panel you have or whether it is on the list of unsafe panels, call an electrician. Fort Lauderdale residents don’t have to guess or worry their panel is unsafe. All you need to do is call for an inspection.

3-A new, upgraded panel will give you better, more efficient service. You won’t have to worry about tripping breakers or ruining your electrical appliances by using service that is inadequate.

Give Elcon Electric a call today and schedule your electric panel inspection and see if you could use an upgrade.
