Electrical Panel Upgrades in Austin, TX

Some Austin homes have been around for decades and while some homeowners may focus on refreshing the look of their yard, kitchen or bathrooms, many forget about their electrical panel. In the years your home has been around, your electrical needs have likely changed. When homeowners are looking for electrical panel upgrades in Austin, they know they can turn to the licensed professionals at ABC Home & Commercial Services.

There are a couple of reasons to upgrade your electric panel. Electric panels channel incoming electricity from the meter and distribute it to the circuits in your home. On occasion, panels can develop issues with properly distributing the power resources, and in those cases would need to be replaced.

More commonly though, it has to do with having an older home. Electric panels come in a range of capacities: 100, 150, 200, or 400 amps. All homes require a minimum amperage, and your electric panel must support that minimum. If your home is older and has an older, lower power panel, it may not be able to power all of today’s modern electrical equipment and appliances.

So, if your home needs to be able to handle 200 amps but only has a panel rated to 100, it would need an upgrade to handle the additional power requirements.

“I elected this year to use ABC to inspect my 8 year old irrigation system. This is my first experience with ABC on irrigation and everything went smoothly. The front office scheduled the visit with me. The tech was in communication early today, kept me informed and asked if he could even arrive early while leaving it up to me to decline or accept. He was friendly and made the necessary minor adjustments to my system. He didn't find anything that required additional service or parts. So, I definitely know my tech (Greg) was not out to drum up unnecessary business at my expense. So this is just based on my first experience, but I will not hesitate to have them inspect my system again next Spring. Update - today I had the ABC landscaping crew out to my place, This was the first attention paid to my landscaping since August of last year - 11 months. So this included damage from the February 2021 storm. I had no previous experience with ABC to do my shrubbery beds but they were fantastic. I'll admit, I was a little apprehensive about having them take over the care . . . but they were caring gardeners. They discussed the work with me before starting, and completed the task including clean up and my beds look fantastic. Now I know I can have them out quarterly to maintain this great look.”
