Does your home need an Electric Service Upgrade? With the growing demand for electricity, new technology and electronic devices hitting the market you might be wondering if it's time to upgrade your home's electrical service. It's a good thing that many new electronic devices draw very little power - but there are others that require a lot of power to operate such as Air Conditioning and Hot Tubs.
Your home's electric system capacity reflects when it was built, or the last time it was rewired. Houses built or rewired more than 30 years ago typically have a 60 or 100 amp service. Newer homes usually have a 150 or 200 amp service. And very large houses can have up to 400 amp service.
Amps are listed on the main circuit breaker in the panel box, they determine the maximum amount your house can safely use. Each circuit in the house is also rated by amps. When the power demand for a circuit approaches the amp limit that the circuit is rated for - the circuit breaker will trip, shutting off the electrical current.
