Do I Need To Upgrade My Electrical Panel?

To learn about the capacity of your current breaker panel, look on the inside. There will be a tag, usually, on the door, that will list maximum voltage, current and power dissipation capability for the panel and busses. Most breaker boxes are 100, 150 or 200 amps. The average home typically requires 200 amp panels to fully operate all of your appliances and meet your electrical needs.

Consider a re-lamp or retrofit in the event of frequent failure

The reality is that the right product in the right application will most likely result in less maintenance. If you can move to more efficient, easier to maintain products, you will reap the benefits in reduced maintenance costs, reduced energy costs, and more consistent visuals across your organization. Many of the latest and greatest LED products have a three to five year warranty that a quality maintenance provider will make sure you take advantage of.
