Service and Service Panel Upgrades
Your electrical service and the service panel (circuit breaker panel) are the heart beat of your home’s electrical system. Our electricians will will make sure your service and panel is up to date, but practical for your home no matter what the size of the house you call home is.
How much power do you need?
Our Milwaukee area electricians will help you decide how large of a service you need. They do this by looking at the amount of power your currently using, and then asking you if you would like any room for expansion. For example, you already have an electric dryer and have plans to install a backyard hot tub next year.
Most home built in the last 20 to 30 years already have a 200 amp service. That is enough power for most homes. But older homes were often only built with 100 amps. Given the increased need for power (air conditioners, microwaves, electronics, etc.) 100 amps is often not enough any more. 3 Phase Power helps homeowners decide what they need based on the custom wants and needs of each home and lifestyle.
How do I know if I need a service upgrade?
1. Older Homes
Older homes in the Milwaukee area were almost always built with a 100 amp electrical service. When these homes were built, no one envisioned central air conditioning, microwaves, toaster ovens, computers, cell phones, or anything else that add to our power usage. 3 Phase Power’s electricians are looking forward to helping you evaluate your electrical service according to your lifestyle. We are also happy to help those who are selling the older home and need to upgrade for the future owner. Yes, the picture on the left is a real home 3 Phase Power serviced!
