When do you know when it is time to upgrade your service in your house?
There are several factors to consider:
If you are adding a new piece of equipment or building that draw a lot of amperage, you will need to consider upgrading. Some examples are:
A hot tub
Ceramic pottery kiln
Switching from gas appliances to electric appliances
If you are blowing a lot of fuses and find yourself installing larger ones than the wire is rated for, it may be time to consider upgrading.
If you are selling your home and you think a first time home buyer may be interested, it may be time to consider upgrading. (Having an upgraded service is a requirement to qualify for a first time homebuyer loan)
If you like saving money on your homeowner’s insurance, it may be time to consider upgrading.
If the mast coming down the side of your house is starting to crack and show bare wires, it may be time to consider upgrading.
