We are delighted to announce that our very own Hanna Taylor, the CEO of Hotwire Electric was featured again on the Marc and Mandy show.
The Marc and Mandy show had asked Hanna to help the viewer’s learn and understand the benefits of electrical panel upgrade.
Comparison between Electrical System and Human Body
In the video Hanna Taylor was discussing the reasons why a home owner should upgrade their electrical panel: “Your panel in your house is essentially the heart-beat of your home. That means that if your heart-beat is not pumping the right amount of blood; your veins, your arteries are missing that type of power. So you are not going to have sufficient energy coming into your devices, your lights. The appliances that you are upgrading to are going to be missing that type of Ambridge that’s required to ensure that your panel is sufficient for your use.”
As mentioned earlier, if you have an old system it may not be able to support your modern home, more appliances, more electronics and more lights.
With growing technology we use a lot of electrical appliances and the amount of electricity supplied in our homes may not be supported by the older types of panel. Your modern home requires a better electric circuit. Old homes probably have fewer outlets. Upgrading your electrical panel will allow you to have more outlets with an increased amount of electricity supplied in your home.
Types of Electrical Panel Upgrade
When you are looking to upgrade your electrical panel, Hannah mentions that there are 2 different options for home owners.
- Standard set up or updating the panel means that we are replacing the older fuse panel to a newer panel which gives you a breaker system or more circuits.
- Updating the entire system which usually is like updating the utility from 100 amps to 200 amps by going from the meter base on the outside of the house inside the home into your panel and instead of just having a 100 amps of power you are now upgrading to 200 amps of server so not only you getting a larger size panel but you’re actually providing your house with more ampage for uses. So you can add a pool, a hot tub you can increase what devices are now being driven by that panel inside your home.
