Electrical Panel Upgrades

Heavy Ups in Maryland, Washington, DC & Northern Virginia

Home offices, telecommuting, power-draining technology, and the like can put a strain on your electrical panel. Many homeowners find their current electrical circuit doesn't provide enough “juice” to stay powered.  Interruptions in service, tripped breakers, and flickering lights are all signs that you simply don’t have enough power coming to your home. 

One way to correct your insufficient power is by investing in an electrical panel upgrade, or heavy up.  Electrical heavy ups increase the power of your home’s electrical circuits.  This increase in amperage (usually to 200 amps) means you can safely power all of your appliances, electrical devices, and lighting, at the same time, without worrying about an interruption.

If you suspect you need an upgrade, trust Jaffe Electric Company with your electrical heavy up.  Since 1992, businesses and homeowners alike have turned to Jaffe for all of their electrical needs.  We offer a full range of services and our certified electricians place customer satisfaction above all else.

When To Get an Electrical Panel Upgrade

Electrical heavy ups don’t just make your life easier by expanding your ability to power your central AC, hair dryer, and video games all at the same time.  An upgrade to a system which isn’t supplying adequate amperage to your home is a safety measure you can’t afford to ignore.  Overloaded circuitry can damage wires inside walls, which can easily spark and catch fire, especially in older homes where electrical heavy ups are most needed.

You need an electrical panel upgrade if:

Don’t overlook the need to upgrade your amperage, or you could risk serious damage to your new devices, and your home.

Heavy Ups in Washington, DC & Surrounding Areas

One of the great things about living in such an historic area is the number of homes preserved in the style dating back a century, or more.  Restoring homes in and around Washington, DC is very popular.  Just remember, if your home is more than even 20 year old, you should have your electrical panel inspected to make sure you have adequate amperage.

Most homes, mid-century and older, have electrical panels with fuses instead of circuit breakers.  At the time these homes were built, 30-60 amps of power sufficiently operated most standard household appliances.  Today’s homes operate at closer to 100-200 amps.  If your home still has an old school fuse box, it’s time for an electrical heavy up.

Experiencing an interruption in power, by way of a tripped breaker, could simply mean you’ve temporarily overloaded your panel.  It happens, but not every day. However, if you regularly experience power failures, flickering lights, and tripped breakers, you need immediate service.  Contact Jaffe Electric Company before any serious damage occurs.
