Before purchasing any new electrical equipment for your home, it would be best to consult us at Evanson Electric to confirm your electrical system is sufficient for it. You may only require a panel upgrade to add one item, but a larger (200 amp) service may be needed for one large load or more than one new load. During consultation, we recommend the customer weigh over their current needs and future possibilities when determining electrical service size. While so many things are going electric (electric vehicles, heat pumps), It is often best to think of “future-proofing” your electrical service.
One other benefit to a panel upgrade is built-in Whole Home Surge Protection. This protects your sensitive electronics from power surges. Ask us!
