Every three years may sound like it’s too frequent, but consider the rapid evolution of technology. As soon as you buy a new phone, computer, or tablet, it’s almost immediately outdated. And consider this: all of the demand that those new electronics are putting on your electrical system are also increasing, too!

Upgrading your electric meter, and updating your service from 100 amps to 200 amps are two really good ideas. If you’re not sure, start with a whole home electrical load calculation. It’s possible you can hold off, but it’s also possible that more than 200 amps might be necessary—especially when you consider both your current and your potential future needs. If you plan to get an electric car or finish your basement, include these in your calculations.

These projects will require some guidance from a professional such as one from Arnold Electric Service, Inc. We have the experts who can help you navigate through code requirements, both for ComEd and the town where you live, for installations of all types of service equipment. All of our meter installations and service upgrades are completed as a turnkey solution, with all permits and inspections and coordination taken care of so you don’t have to do anything but sit back and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing your home’s nervous system is ready for anything you can dish out.

Jack is not the typical Chicago electrician. He was patient and answered all my questions. His electrical knowledge was helpful in diagnosing real problems the electric services. Everything is okay for now, and we plan on doing a complete remodel soon.
