Panel Upgrade Professionals
The electrical panel is the core of your home's electrical system, as well as its link the outside electrical grid. Your electrical panel needs to be able to support the amount of electricity that your home uses, and if it isn't able to, it could lead to power outages or create unsafe situations. At One Call Electrical, Heating & Cooling Service, Inc., our professional South Plainfield electricians can work with you to determine whether you need a panel upgrade for your home, and if necessary, we can handle the entire job.
Your electrical panel is typically located in your basement or garage, and it's filled with switches. Those switches are the breakers, and if they trip, you'll experience an electrical outage until you switch them back on. If you notice that your breakers frequently trip or repeatedly trip, then we recommend that you have your panel inspected in order to determine whether you should have it upgraded.
Does Your Electrical Panel Need an Upgrade?
Old and outdated panels are more than just an inconvenience. They'll cause irritating electrical outages, but that can also lead to damaging smoke or even a house fire. You should have your electrical upgraded if:
- You have a screw-in style fuse panel.
In older homes, screw-in style fuse panels are very common. When they were introduced, they were perfectly fine panels, but because of the amount of electricity used in modern homes, they are no longer considered adequate. These should be upgraded immediately.
- Your breakers constantly trip.
When a breaker trips, it's because too much electricity is being required of a circuit, and if that happens repeatedly, you put your home at risk of an electrical fire.
Contact our professional South Plainfield electricians if either of these issued is effecting your electrical system.

Recent Panel Upgrade at Sared Heart Church in South Plainfield
We were hired by Sacred Heart Church in South Plainfield to replace their Federal Pacific panels in the rectory. This job was more difficult because the panels were built into block.
We installed Cutler Hammer panels in place of the Federal Pacific Panels. The area around the panels was patched and then painted making it look as if these are the original. Great work!
