Electrical Service Upgrades in Allentown, PA and greater Lehigh Valley, PA area

Electrical Service Upgrade

If your home is at least 35 years old, there's a good chance that your electrical system may be outdated. If so, you may also be in violation of Pennsylvania state codes and mandates for wiring and panel upgrades. Modern technology and appliances require a more powerful energy source than ever before. They can easily overload an older panel or circuit breaker and wiring. This creates a dangerous situation for both your home and your family. If you have a home over three decades old, then it is recommended that you get an inspection and an upgrade. Contact Lehigh Valley Electric, Inc today for a full evaluation of your home's panel, breaker, and electric wiring. We can make recommendations and update your entire system.

Electric Panel Service

The electric panel in your home distributes electric flow to all the outlets and switches in your home, powering all of your appliances and electronic devices. The electricity which stems from your electric company comes in through the panel and is then channeled throughout the wiring. Your panel and your circuit breaker work together to control the amount of flow needed and to keep overload from occurring. If your panel is old, worn, or damaged, it may not be able to handle the amount of current that is being pulled from your devices. This causes an efficient operation that is also very dangerous.

Signs That You Need A New Panel

If you don't know how old your panel is or if it needs an upgrade, then the best thing to do is call a licensed electrician. There are some signs of an electric panel that needs to be changed.

  • Flickering Lights
  • Circuit Breaker that is frequently tripping
  • Melted or burnt wiring accompanied by a smell
  • Crackling or buzzing sounds by the panel or in the wiring
  • Appliances are not running at full capacity

If you observe these signs, then it's a good idea to install new equipment in your home.
