Electrical Service Upgrade
No matter the age of your home, it’s important to consider the safety of your electrical system. Fire, electric shock, or electrocution caused by the malfunction of an older or overburdened electrical system are not uncommon.
Stafford Home Service can inspect your current electrical system and evaluate your needs to see if your home or property could benefit from an electrical upgrade. This will ensure that your home is compliant with current code, able to handle current and future power needs, and provides convenient access to outlets and other power receptacles.
From the 1950s to the 1980s, circuit breaker panels from Federal Pacific Electric Company (FPE) were widely installed in homes throughout the United States. These panels, known as Stab-Lok boxes, often prove defective, causing extensive damage to electrical systems and fires. If your home was built or rewired during that time period, we recommend that you check the manufacturer of your circuit breaker panel. Stafford Home Service can replace a hazardous FPE electrical panel and restore safety and peace of mind for you and your family.
An electrical service upgrade may include part or all of the following:
- Rewiring of the entire electrical system
- New electrical panel
- Upgrade from fuse box to circuit breakers
- New outside meter box
