Electrical Upgrades & Wiring Champaign IL
Your electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system. It is the key distributor of all electrical circuits within your home. If you are adding electrical appliances or installing electrical circuits – we advice contacting a professional to avoid any potential safety and fire hazard caused by installing electrical upgrades and wiring. At D&D, we evaluate your entire electrical system and determine if you are in need of a panel upgrade, or even a complete installation of a sub panel to better develop your electrical efficiency.
If your home is experiencing dim lights, consistent power outages and circuit breaker fails, it may be time to either upgrade your electrical panel or install a sub panel. An electrical sub panel installation is ideal to relieve the burden of running your entire electrical system through your main panel. Sub-panels are also an ideal installation if your main panel doesn’t have enough space to support additional circuit breakers.
As your local electrician experts, we advise against DIY endeavors. The risks are too great. At home electrocutions are fairly common and result as a case of negligence and improper techniques to help ensure proper safety guidelines are met. Your home’s safety is our number one priority in any electrical work we do for you, whether it is servicing a blown fuse or rewiring your entire house.
