Residential Electric Panel Upgrade
Residential Electrician in Calgary, Alberta
Are You Planning For A New Hot Tub, Air Conditioning Unit, EV Charger, Steam Shower, Basement Or Secondary Suite? Make Sure Your Panel Can Accommodate The Additional Load
If you are planning any of these add-ons to your home or you have an existing 60 Amp service, you may need to consider upgrading the size of your electrical panel. Kilts & Cables can complete a detailed calculation of the power consumption for your property and advise what room you have on your existing panel, and what size the panel needs to be to accommodate the equipment you want to add. Panel upgrades/swaps also become necessary due to the condition of the panel and availability of breakers, we can help you evaluate the panels condition and determine if a replacement is necessary. Updates to the Canadian Electrical Code state that arc fault protection is mandatory for new receptacle circuits to a breaker panel. This could require changing out a breaker, replacement of the panel, or installation of a sub-panel. Kilts & Cables staff are qualified to assist you with this assessment and repair work at a reasonable price.
