San Diego Electrical Panel Upgrades & Repair

Americans are electrical power hungry. Today our air conditioning systems take more power than an entire home did 30 years ago. A kitchen, in a San Diego home, will usually be equipped with a number of receptacles capable of supplying more than 60 amps just to counter top appliances. Adding receptacles does not increase the available power if they are looped from other receptacles. To get more power to a location the circuit should run directly from the distribution panel.

It is an upgrade from the existing electrical panel. With all the new appliances, and technical devices we now have in our San Diego homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a “service change” is required. This includes not only an upgrade in your electric panel. but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel.

A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. (1) Sometimes a breakers might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. (2) The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.

Budget Electric is San Diego’s leading installer of new electrical panels in the area. The reason? Great prices, fast service, and because we do so many service panel upgrades, an intimate understanding of exactly what it takes to get the job done right the first time.
