What Happens If I Disregard Having An Upgrade?
Making sure that the electricity in your home is safe and functioning properly is important for your everyday use.

How Do I Know When It Is Time For An Upgrade?
With your home and business depending heavily on your electrical system, it is important to make sure that it stays maintained. However, if you are wondering when it is time to upgrade your system, some signs to look out for include:
Breakers Continue to Trip
If your breaker trips every time you turn on a high draw appliance, then it is time to consider having an upgrade for your electrical system. Our professionals can come and check out your breakers to see if your system is using too much power with the electrical system it has and help you with making arrangements for an upgrade.
If your service was last installed or upgraded more than 30 years ago, you may not be running on a 200 amp service. At a lower grade service, your electrical system may not be able to keep up with the modern appliances being used.
Burning Smell or Discolored Outlets
If you smell something burning, make sure to find the source because if it is ignored, it may cause a house fire. If there is a burning smell coming from the breaker box, it could either mean that your entire system is overloaded or one particular circuit is overloaded. One of the connections in your breaker box may also be loose. The burning smell could be caused by extra heat coming from too much current flowing through the wires. The heat from the wires could cause your outlets to turn darker or brown.
The overuse of extension cords to try to create more outlets can also be a sign of needing an upgrade. If you find yourself running out of outlets, looking at adding more circuits may help with eliminating the overuse of extension cords. Our certified Castle Electric professional can meet with you to let you know if there is an upgrade needed in your home or business.
