Does Your Electrical Panel Meet Your Power Needs?

Many of our area’s older homes still use 60-amp service, and in many situations, the entire system is protected by only a few breakers or fuses. These outdated electrical systems are becoming increasingly incapable of supplying the necessary electricity to today’s power-hungry lighting, appliances, power tools, and other electronic equipment. If your home is equipped with a fuse box rather than an electrical panel and circuit breakers, it is unlikely to be able to power modern HVAC systems such as heat pumps, central air conditioning units, and other high-demand equipment.

What Is a Service Change or Electrical Upgrade?

Our service upgrades and improvements include more than just electrical panel modifications. During an electrical service upgrade in Bucks or Montgomery County, PA, Wes Carver Electric’s team members can replace every component of your home’s main electrical system. Our most common upgrades include:

  • New electrical panel with main breaker
  • New meter socket
  • New main power cable(s)
  • New main panel surge protection device
  • Complete grounding system
  • All connected circuits installed
  • All new proper-sized breakers for existing circuits
  • All required permits and inspections


Even though the electrical panel in your home is your property, electrical panel replacement isn’t always straightforward. Your local utility company owns the electric meter outside your home, so our electricians will use their existing hardware during electrical work without disrupting this electric meter. We offer one of the strongest and longest warranties on parts in the area, so you can schedule your electrical upgrade service confidently with us.

Most homes built in the past 40 or so years still have 100-amp electrical panels, which meet PA’s minimum electrical standards. However, this may be insufficient to fulfill your household’s electrical demands of today’s modern conveniences and a new electrical panel installation is needed.. We can walk you through the process of upgrading to a 200 or 400-amp electrical panel. During your electrical service upgrade in Bucks or Montgomery County, PA, a certified Wes Carver Electric electrician will inspect your property’s electrical system, upgrade it, and add more circuits and electrical wiring as needed, and ensure that the permit process is smooth and complete.

A world with no more tripped circuit breakers or faulty light switches is closer than you think. A 200-amp service will take your electrical panel to the next level! Call or click to schedule an electrical update consultation with one of our local electricians.

5 Signs That It’s Time for an Electrical Service Upgrade

Electrical problems in your home can be both inconvenient and hazardous. Failing outlets, switches, fixtures, and electrical wiring can present serious issues in the home for adults, children, and pets alike. And while your electrical system can’t talk, it will show signs when things go wrong. Call for a service upgrade or book electrical repairs if you notice:

Discolored Outlets and Burning Smells

lf your electrical system is overloaded, it will become extremely hot, emitting a strange burning odor as the wires overheat. The damage can spread, turning your outlet covers dark brown. lf your outlets are scorched or you detect a burning odor that you can't place, contact us for an electrical service upgrade.

Excessive Use of Power Strips

If you find yourself relying on multiple power strips and extension cords to accommodate your appliances or electronic devices, you are likely overloading your electrical system. There is a reason why homes are designed with a specific number of outlets, and if you constantly feel like your home doesn’t have enough, you’re overdue for an upgrade. We can address this issue by replacing your outdated electrical panel and increasing power output. Contact us to arrange an electrical panel upgrade tailored to your needs!

Recalled Or Out-of-Date Electrical Panels

If your home’s electrical panel belongs to Zinsco Electric or Federal Pacific Electric, it's time to schedule an electric panel upgrade with a Wes Carver Electric professional electrician. Since these brands of electrical panels are either out-of-date or have been recalled, call us to have one of our highly qualified electricians assess your electrical needs and show you solutions.

Circuit Breakers That Trip Frequently

Do you often trip a circuit breaker switch in your home when you run the dryer or plug in a TV? Circuit breakers cut power to overloaded circuits, and recurring breaker problems point to issues. If your breakers trip often, it could be a sign you need more power. It’s time for an electrical service upgrade!

Flickering Lights

If the lights in your home flicker when electronics are in use, it may signify that your appliances are drawing more power than the electrical panel can provide. You may be exceeding your home’s electrical load, especially if you have new appliances. An electrical panel upgrade can help power these appliances effectively and stop this irritating issue.

If one or more of the above issues appear to be occurring within your home’s electrical system, consider scheduling an electrical service upgrade in Bucks or Montgomery County, PA, with Wes Carver Electric.
