Professional Electrical Service Upgrades Offered by Live Electric LLC
Considering all the new and fast changing technological development of today, many homes are lagging in the area of electrical services. And since the lifespan of buildings is increasing as well, such lags in the electrical system can lead to big problems, ranging from damage done to electronics all the way to serious injury risk. That is why check-ups and upgrades to a building’s electrical system are in order every now and then, to make sure everything is running smoothly or to improve the situation where needed. Anything from electrical panels, to wiring and security devices might need to be inspected, repaired or replaced, as the case may be.

In the long run, you might not have enough power, or experience damaging power fluctuations, outages or, in some cases, even the risk of fires. The same is true for commercial areas as well, with the damage increasing exponentially to the size and type of surface.
It is true that general electrical upgrades can sometimes be difficult and even messy, but they can save you a lot of hassle later on.

Service Upgrades – 200/400/600 amps
With the higher energy requirements of modern technology, devices such as PCs, high-definition TVs or entertainment systems, heat pumps, air conditioning, water heaters and so on, require a bigger charge today than older systems. Considering the average power consumption of a home at the present, its electrical wiring needs to be able to withstand serious power loads for longer times, in order to keep the working parameters within acceptable range. The electrical load anticipated for any rewiring done to homes or offices usually determines what type of electrical service will be installed, be it 200, 400 or 600 amps.
Such examinations, of the house’s wiring and target needs can be done by professionals, giving a complete and safe assessment of the services in use. Live Electric LLC can not only advise you in case you need any type of electrical rewiring, but we can also handle any upgrade needed for your devices. Usually, the 200-600 range is the most common for the correct functioning of modern electronic devices and appliances. Starting with the 1980s, 200 amps became the standard electrical services for houses, however, older residences have a smaller range. If you want to upgrade this service, you will need a professional assessment beforehand, both of the wiring in your house and of the type of connection your house has to the electrical grid. Compared to 100 amps panels, the 200 – 600 amps panels are bigger and draw more power from the grid, depending on the size of your house and its utilities.
Our professional services include assessment, installation, upgrades, maintenance and we can make sure you won’t have any more electrical problems, no matter if your building falls under residential or commercial status.
Replace 100 amps with 200/400/600
Houses built in the 1940s and 1950s are designed with 60 amps electrical services, or around that scale. Houses built in the 60s or 70s most commonly have 100 amps electrical services and the 200 amps and higher range was introduced in the 80s, with most houses today needing much more power than in the past. Anything from electronics to amenities will settle how much power a building draws from the electrical grid. This being the case, today’s bigger power requirements generally imply what type of service you need. If your house is designed with older wiring, you will most probably need a service upgrade to make sure your devices operate within an optimal scope and that you’re protected from problems like power shortages or outages.
Live Electric can offer you the best upgrading options for your building, can give you all the information you need for your particular case and can even perform maintenance on your systems, to make sure everything is in working order.
Replacing a 100 amps service with a 200 amps one is usually the most common decision for most houses, however, depending on its size and the devices running, this charge can be pushed to 400 or even 600 amps. Typically commercial buildings are the ones that require the higher end of this range.
