Professional Electrical Panel Upgrades in Greater Vancouver

At Evanson Electric, we aim to optimize the functioning of your property's electrical systems. For this reason, our experienced electrical contractors offer a range of services. One of our offerings includes electrical panel upgrades in Greater Vancouver. The electrical panel of your electrical system is the link between the main power line and your property. It performs the essential function of distributing electrical power and supplying it to the different areas of your property accordingly. The condition of your electrical panel not only determines the functioning of the various components of your electrical system but also affects your safety. Outdated electrical panels can cause electrical problems. In worst-case scenarios, they can lead to fires.

Our electrical contractors have the expertise to assess your electrical panel and upgrade it if required. We can work on commercial and residential properties, along with strata complexes. We will provide quick, efficient and long-lasting solutions that add value and functionality to your home or commercial space.

 

Please contact us if you require an electrical panel upgrade in Vancouver.

Panel Upgrades and Service Upgrades

Before purchasing new electrical equipment for your home, consult us at Evanson Electric to ensure your electrical system can handle it. A simple panel upgrade is sometimes enough, but a 200-amp service might be necessary for larger or multiple new loads. During our consultation, we'll help you assess your current needs and possibilities. We will emphasize the importance of "future-proofing" your electrical service as more devices and systems go electric (like electric vehicles and heat pumps).

 

A panel upgrade can also provide built-in Whole Home Surge Protection, safeguarding your sensitive electronics from power surges. Contact us to learn more!

Signs You Should Upgrade Your Electrical Panel

Generally, electrical panels can last a long time. However, as with most things, they can suffer from wear and tear over time. The following are some signs that indicate you should upgrade your electrical panel:

Age:

Typically, electrical panels last between 25-40 years. If your electrical panel falls under this category, you should schedule an inspection even if it is not causing any apparent problems.

Tripping:

It is not unusual for electrical panels to trip if a particular component of your electrical system needs more power. However, regular tripping can indicate trouble.

No breakers:

In older homes, electrical panels made use of fuse panels to direct electricity and not breakers. However, these are now seen as a hazard.

Damage to body:

Is your electrical panel rusty, damaged or in contact with water? You should schedule an inspection of it immediately.

Burning smell:

Is there a burning smell emanating from your electrical panel? We recommend calling for help immediately.

These are only some things that can go wrong with your electrical panel. If you notice anything amiss with it, you should schedule an appointment with us immediately, no matter how irrelevant it seems.
