Electrical Service Upgrades

Are you finally moving forward with those plans to refinish your kitchen or basement or build an addition?

Are you scared to go near that water damaged, rusted-out, hazardous panel board?

When you look at the outside of your house, do you see weathered, crumbling cables barely supported by rusty straps?

If you answered yes to any of these questions… YOU NEED A SERVICE UPGRADE!

A service upgrade is the installation of new equipment to increase electrical capacity, a necessity as your home evolves to meet the needs of your family. Press Electric will perform a service upgrade in one day with little to no modification of your home.

Aside from an increased capacity to add new circuits to your home’s existing wiring, a service upgrade will go a long way towards improving the re-sale value of your home. Press Electric assures the safe operation of all new breakers and materials as your house is brought up to code.
