Service and Panel Upgrade, the GTA
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How long does a service and panel upgrade take?
What are signs that my service size is too small?
Going over capacity is dangerous, and will usually be exemplified by blackouts when you plug in one too many devices. This shows that your service size is too small, and that more power is required to support the demand. Another related sign that your existing system is outdated is old wiring. The older your wiring is, the more likely it is to be faulty. A key sign is sparking when you go to plug in a device, or scorch marks on a power outlet. Warmth around your electrical panel is also usually an urgent matter and should be looked at immediately by a professional.
Are there any additional charges that I should be aware of?
A licensed electrician should inform you of any additional charges. There may be a “pole cost”, which includes the cost of disconnecting and reconnecting of power to your home. If you have any questions about any charges, let us know and we will be happy to help.
