Service Upgrade vs. Service Change

A service change is when we change all the components of the electrical service to handle the same capacity.

A service upgrade is when we change all the components of your electrical panel to bigger ones to handle more amps of electricity.

Service upgrades are recommended for homeowners who have done or are planning to do a renovation, as well as homes that are older and have, over the years, increased their electrical load.

If you need to upgrade to a bigger amp service, then a grounding update might also be necessary. In this case, we will install two 8-foot long grounding rods into the ground and interconnect them with the proper wire to the main electrical panel grounding bar. 

To ensure the best grounding of your electrical system, it is also necessary to have the main panel bonded together with your water main. Hot and cold water pipes must also be bonded together with a proper size wire at the water heater.
