Electrical Upgrades

Why Make Upgrades?

More than just a nuisance, frequently tripping circuit breakers indicates that the power coming into your home just isn’t enough for existing wiring and outlets to handle.

Without an updated electrical system, a malfunction is possible and can lead to an electrical fire, power surges, electric shock, or electrocution.


Any change to your home’s layout means you may require power to be distributed differently for convenience and safety. Whether it’s moving light switches or a whole new kitchen,New modern electrical demands can pose a potential safety hazard for a tired electrical system.

The prevalence of home offices means household members are often home at the same time, sharing power strips and the overall demand on electrical panels. At a minimum, circuit breakers may need replacing and electrical wiring updates should be considered.

The Ideal Electrical Panel

A new electrical panel ensures that your home will continue a steady flow of electrical services.

Not only will you eliminate problems with current electrical system, but you will also be able to add more energy efficient appliances without tripping your breaker, blowing fuses, or damaging current appliances.

An outdated breaker panel fails to keep up with new appliances and costs more to have. An electrical panel upgrade can help with reducing your homeowner’s insurance bill. When you replace the fuse box with a breaker panel, your home becomes safer, qualifying you for a discount on your annual bill.

Avoid Electrical Fires

Don’t be shocked! Prevent electrical shock and the potential for electrical fire by keeping these updates in mind:
  • Electrical Outlets

    Check for loose plugs. Ensure missing or broken wall plates are replaced, leaving no exposed wires.
  • Plugs

    Never force a plug into an outlet or attempt to make a three prong plug fit a two pronged outlet. Avoid overloading outlets with too many adapters.
  • Light Bulbs

    Check the wattage to ensure light bulbs match the fixture specs. No one wants a shattered lightbulb. Make sure bulbs are screwed in tightly so they don’t overheat.
  • Extension Cords

    Extension cords are to be used as a temporary solution only. They are not intended as permanent household wiring. If you feel the need to utilize extension cords for an extended amount of time, it’s time to upgrade your controls systems and electric panel.
  • Service Capacity

    If fuses blow or trip frequently, you may need to increase the capacity of your electrical service or add new branch circuits. The qualified, licensed electricians at Integrity Electrical and Controls Systems can determine the appropriate service requirements for your home.
