Many people in live in homes that were built years ago, which means that many of these homes have electrical systems that were not built to handle today’s electrical needs. This makes an electric service upgrade not only desirable, but a safety necessity. An obsolete home electrical system trying to handle modern electricity needs is not just inconvenient for home owners who constantly struggle with flickering lights, tripping breakers and too few outlets for too many modern appliances—it can be downright dangerous.

The lights constantly flicker anytime we turn on a major appliance.

Your home has several two-pronged outlets (3-pronged GFCI, or “Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets are required in new homes as they protect people from getting shocked).
You have recently installed air conditioners, heat pumps, or any other large appliance that draws a lot of electricity.
You have added a new office, workshop, finished basement or other areas to your home.
