Panel and Service Upgrades

200 Amp service upgrade


A 200 Amp service upgrade refers to increasing the electrical service capacity of a building or home from a lower ampacity (e.g., 100 Amp) to a higher capacity of 200 Amp. It involves replacing the existing electrical panel, distribution wiring, and associated components to handle the increased electrical load.

Fixing Electricity Lines


How do I know if my current electrical service is less than 200 Amps?
Have a look at what it reads on the main breaker, it will have a number etched into the toggle switch. When determining your power requirements it’s a good idea to consult an electrician as they can do a demand load calculation based on what you're using in your home.

Why would I need an electrical panel upgrade?

Increased electrical demand: If you're adding new appliances, equipment, or home addition, your current electrical panel may not have sufficient capacity to handle the additional load or enough breaker spaces.

Safety concerns: Older panels, particularly those with outdated technology or known issues, may pose safety risks such as overheating or insufficient circuit protection. Federal Pioneer panels are known to not break when overloaded or even during a dead short. Federal Pioneer panels should be replaced.
