Remodeling Upgrade: 200 Amp Service Panels

November 28, 2011

Electrical panelShould you upgrade to a 200 amp service panel? This is a question worth exploring during your home remodel.

Amp service is the rating of electrical power coming into your home. Most houses built 30 years ago were only constructed with a 100 amp panel, but now with so many electrical code compliances as well as life changes, upgrading to a 200 amp panel during your home remodel can be a convenient way to plan for the future.

In addition to the convenience of upgrading during your remodel, a 200 amp panel can also make your home more valuable when you decide to put it on the market.

Have you upgraded to a 200 amp panel? What would you recommend? Contact us to find out why a higher rating would be beneficial for your home.
