Roanoke Home Electrical Panel & Service Upgrades

Service Panel Upgrades RoanokeMany of the older homes in the Roanoke area have outdated and often badly deteriorating electrical service equipment. For your family's safety, the main service panel, main disconnect, service entrance conductors, metering equipment, main grounding and bonding should all be inspected if your home is 20 years or older. Today’s electronics put a huge demand on your electrical system.

Older homes often have outdated 60 or 100 amp service cables, meters, fuse boxes – with no grounding and bonding. With today's energy intensive homes, old electrical systems can quickly be overwhelmed. Older electrical service equipment can also deteriorate over time increasing the risk of electrical shock and fires.

With a main electrical service panel upgrade from Ostrom you will be able to run several appliances at the same time without overloads. We can also install new circuits and receptacles to accommodate more plugs and appliances. Our experienced Electricians will assure that your home’s electrical wiring is safe and done according to code for years of worry-free service.

Advantages to upgrading your electrical panel are:
  • Add more circuits or outlets
  • Reduce overloaded breakers that trip
  • Add dedicated circuits to protect sensitive electronics
  • Accommodate large appliance electrical needs
  • Accommodate a home remodeling project
  • Upgrade heating and cooling systems
CONSUMER ALERT: There are certain brands of electrical panels that have design flaws that can result in electrical short circuits. Of particular concern are older Federal Pacific and Zinsco service panels. If your home built between 1950 and 1989 you need to contact an electrician immediately. These panels can work fine for years. However, as energy demands in typical homes have increased, these panels may overheat and portions of the panel could actually melt or catch on fire. New electrical components install by Ostrom are backed by a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. This includes panels and breakers.
