Electrical equipment is improved all the time. If you're still running on an older electrical system, the best thing to do is to get a Power Upgrade.
Trust a certified electrician from Conklin Electric to come remove old, non-compliant and potentially hazardous electrical components and replace them with the last electrical equipment so you can get the most out of your system.
Signs You Need a Power Upgrade
1. Flickering Lights
If your lights are flickering frequently, this is caused by faulty wiring. Light flickering may also come along with burning smells or small electric shocks when you touch certain appliances.
If left alone, faulty wiring can be a safety hazard and can cause unexpected electrical fires.
2. Tripping Circuit Breakers
Circuit breakers tripping often when you attempt to use appliances is a tell-tale sign you need a Power Upgrade.
Circuit breakers trip when a circuit is overloaded. This is because your electrical panel doesn't have the capacity to handle that much electricity.
This is especially common when your electrical panel is more than 25 years old. The old technology simply wasn't designed to handle today's advanced appliances.
3. You're Using Power Strips Everywhere
While a power strip may seem like the solution when you find yourself in need of another outlet, it's really just a bandaid.
If you're using power strips all over the place, the truth is, you're using more electricity than your electrical system has the capacity for.
At some point, your circuit breakers will likely start tripping regularly because of this overload.
