Home and business owners rely on their electrical service to keep lights, appliances, computers and entertainment devices operating properly. However, many homes and businesses need electrical upgrades to protect not only the property, but also the lives of families or clients. Properties constructed just a few years ago have wiring that was not designed to meet the complex needs of today’s home and business owners. Working with a professional electrician now may save more than just money.
Generally, new computers, televisions or appliances are purchased, brought home and plugged into the nearest outlet. Years ago, that was acceptable, as homes and businesses used lights and a few simple devices. Today, all of that has changed. We no longer have simple televisions. We have home theaters with surround sound, satellite receivers and Blueray DVD players. Home offices are equipped with expensive computers, printers and other equipment. Those devices are sensitive and demand a steady current supply. Older systems simply can’t meet those demands, with the result being a threat to the equipment.
Electrician Carmel specialists evaluate situations every day where older wiring has been responsible for the failure of computers and other expensive equipment. Generally, too much is expected of an older system designed when lighting and a couple of kitchen appliances were the average load for an electrical service. Many older 100 amp panels are still in use, with only a handful of circuits supplying power for a home filled with electronics. Even older services up to 200 amps may not have sufficient circuits to protect computers or entertainment centers.
As load demands increase, wiring cannot deliver an even power supply when appliances or other technology is energized. New homes are now commonly wired with circuits that isolate computers and other expensive electronics, but no one anticipated the needs of modern families or business owners in the past.
