If your Ohio home is over 30 years old, or if your current electrical service amperage isn’t providing enough power for your home’s needs, an electrical panel service upgrade is likely in order. Upgrading your home’s electrical panel is often necessary because older homes can’t provide enough power to support modern energy needs, since the load on domestic electrical systems increases every day.

Increasing this amperage with Goods Electric, Heating & Air’s 100-amp, 200-amp, or 400-amp electrical panel service upgrade services will provide you with countless benefits, including a safer electrical system and the ability to use more electrical appliances. You can enjoy a consistent power supply, an increased Ohio home value, and lower electricity bills thanks to increased efficiency.

What amperage service does my Ohio home need?
Your Ohio home’s electrical service needs depend on the number of electric appliances you have and the size of your home, among other factors. Smaller homes with gas heating or other gas appliances will have their electrical service needs met with a 100-amp panel. 200-amp service panels are the current standard for the average family home. A 400-amp service panel is often a good fit for large homes, or for homes with electric heating and cooling systems. Call Goods Electric, Heating & Air at (330) 845-5782

Signs Your Ohio Home Needs An Electrical Panel Service Upgrade
Unlike the vast majority of appliances, your Ohio home’s electrical service panel won’t break down and stop working entirely. Instead, it’ll see a slow decline in output before finally failing. If you notice any of the following signs in your home, contact Goods Electric, Heating & Air for electrical panel service upgrade services:
Flickering Lights: If the lights in your home flicker when one of your appliances turns on, you’ll want to look into an electrical panel service upgrade, since your current amperage is struggling to provide enough power for your needs.
Discolored Outlets: When your current electrical service fails to provide enough power, it may become overloaded. Extra heat from excessive power may cause your outlets to become discolored, and they may turn a darker shade or even brown.
Buzzing or Humming: Any strange noises coming from your electrical panel, or your electrical system as a whole, is a sign that you need to replace or upgrade it with Goods Electric, Heating & Air.
Frequent Circuit Breaker Tripping: If your circuit breaker keeps tripping when you turn on a high draw appliance, like your washing machine, it means that more electrical current is flowing through the circuit than it can handle. This means it’s time to upgrade your electrical panel to a higher amperage!
Burning Smell: Never ignore a burning smell in your Ohio home, since it could lead to a fire. This odor may be caused by too much current flowing through the wiring, an overloaded system, or a loose connection. If you can see sparks or smell burning, these are clear indications that your electrical system requires immediate attention.
Old Age: If your home’s electrical system hasn’t been upgraded in the last 30 years, you likely have a lower grade service that can’t run as many modern appliances as you’d like. Whether your electrical panel is 30 years old, or you aren’t certain how old it is, it’s a good idea to look into upgrading it with the help of the Goods Electric, Heating & Air experts, since an outdated panel will eventually fail.
