New Electrical Circuits
Just because you have sufficient power for your home now is no guarantee that it is going to accommodate any additional demands that you place upon it. While many homeowners are under the impression that just adding circuits to the breaker box will handle any additional demands, this isn’t always the case.
Most homes are outfitted with an electrical panel that is suited to its electrical requirements, with little room for increased electricity. Adding a circuit or two might be just fine to accommodate your new electrical needs, but it’s quite easy to exceed the safe threshold if you’re not careful.
Instead of just adding circuits in the hope that it will be enough for your needs, it’s best to have your circuits and electrical panel evaluated by a licensed electrician.
When do you need to look into adding circuits or updating your electrical panel?
Any time you add an appliance to your home, you are increasing the demand on the electrical system. Consult with a licensed electrician before hooking up a major appliance to determine if your system is ready for the added load.
Whenever you set up a big holiday light display, you’re adding more of an electrical load to your home’s electric panel. This is one of the leading reasons to hire a local electrician to upgrade your circuits.
Hot tubs draw a massive amount of electricity and are almost always a cause for installing new circuits and potentially upgrading your electrical panel.
If you are adding a new room to your house or any additional square footage, you’ll need to accommodate that by adding one or more new circuits to the system. Depending on the size and electrical requirements of your addition, the increase in amperage could require updating the electric panel to prevent a fire.
