Service Panel Upgrades Vancouver
Why Upgrade Your Electrical Service Panel?
With all the new appliances and technical devices we now have in our homes, we find that older homes just don’t have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a service change is required.
This may include not only upgrading your electric panel, but upgrading your metre socket, the wire between the metre and panel, the wire between the utility, the meter, and the grounding system as well. A panel upgrade or replacement is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel.
Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that the busbar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs. This is especially common when aluminum conductors were used. Panels that were manufactured by CEB or FPE are now discontinued and have many issues. Ask the professional electricians at TDR Electric about upgrading your electrical service or electrical panel in North and West Vancouver.

Insurance companies have issues with insuring homes with fuse panels sometimes they will recommend that the panel be changed out for a breaker panel system. A large problem with fuse panels is that when a 15A fuse blows, most people will put a 20A or even 25A to replace it and stop it from blowing. This is very dangerous because the wires are not rated for this amperage and could cause a fire! The professional electricians in Vancouver at TDR Electric can replace your fuse panel with a breaker panel. Let us educate you on the costs and procedures.
