Roanoke Electrical Panel & Service Upgrades
Is It Time to Upgrade Your System?
Many of the older homes in the Southwest Virginia area have outdated and often badly deteriorating electrical service equipment.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Older homes often have outdated 60 or 100 amp service cables, meters, fuse boxes with no grounding and bonding.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.
Our professional electricians at Ostrom Electrical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning can take a look at your electrical panel at home to determine if it’s time for an upgrade. We will then discuss your options and provide upfront pricing, so you can make an informed decision for your home.

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 was 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 including panels and breakers installed by Ostrom Electrical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning are backed by a lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
