Very happy with Paul and the Panel Upgrade Experts team. They are professionals who provide high quality work and no mess when they leave. The new 200 amp electrical panel they installed shows well, the wiring connecting to it is straight and parallel, a reflection of true workmanship and pride of the installer. This holds true of other work they did like hard wiring smoke/CO sensors, etc.I'm impressed with Joel who is personable, knowledgeable, and takes pride in his work.Paul, Jill and Joel took time to answer any questions I had which was helpful in my decision making to make sure I was happy.I wouldn't hesitate to use Panel Upgrade Experts again and highly recommend them.Thank you Ken

We moved into a house with an unsafe electrical panel that was mess of wires. Paul and his team not only left us with a tidy and safe new panel, but also helped us upgrade our service installation to 200 amp service. Very happy with the quality of the work and support in pulling permits and communicating with the necessary service providers. I would highly recommend Panel Upgrade Experts!

We recently got solar panels installed by Paul and Panel Upgrade Experts. From the onset, Paul’s responsiveness and customer service skills put him ahead of other companies who provided us with a quote, and the competitive price he provided made the decision easy. Install happened quickly, cleanly and with just the right level of communication. Jill in the office was always responsive and kind. Can’t say enough about this company; it feels good to be in capable hands. High recommend.

The installation went very well, the electricians were excellent.They worked safely and a produced high quality installation.My overall scope was an upgrade to a new 200 amp panel from and old panel from 1969 as well as 100 amp service to our garage and relocation of the main power line to our home.The team worked very quickly and were able to have the power back on again before the end of the day.All in all, it was a great team effort (Paul, Joel, and John) facilitated by the good relationships they have developed with workers from Enmax and the City Inspector.Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss any details.Patricio Venegas

Before After Panel

Here are some questions to help you determine if you need new a electrical panel.

Fuse panels are long obsolete in residential settings. There are multiple issues with having a fuse panel in your home. Human error or manipulation is one of them. Also, if you have a fuse panel in your home you probably have less than a 100 amp supply (100 amp is code for nearly all homes in Calgary). Your wiring may also not be grounded properly, so leaving you at risk of electric shock. Our Calgary electrician can fix all these issues for you.
We deal with insurance requested upgrades all the time. Set up an appointment for an estimate with one of our Calgary electrician’s and we can take care of all the required issues. We will also provide letters for your insurance company if needed. We can also deal directly with the insurer if they have any special requests.
Electrical panels and circuit breakers are like all appliances, and have a 15-20 year life expectancy. As the panel and breakers age the functionality diminishes. Circuit breakers can either trip more frequently (nuisance tripping) or not trip at all (putting the circuit at risk of overloading).
This is very common. A kitchen renovation can add up to 10 new circuits to a house. If you have limited space in the panel it may be time for an upgrade. Our electricians can take care of both the electrical panel upgrade and any other electrical work you may need doing.
You may be overloading the circuit or the circuit breaker might be worn out. If you overload an old circuit breaker you have a higher chance of damaging the insulation of the wire. A new circuit breaker or electrical panel will ensure the highest level of protection.
It depends of a few different aspects. We can give a ballpark estimate over the phone with some simple questions. That way if you are looking to buy a home with an old electrical panel you have an idea of cost before purchasing.
Small electrical panels and low overhead wires are a very common issues with older house sales. This is not something that should scare you off from buying your dream home. We can give you an idea of cost over the phone or you can book an estimate for an exact price. We can schedule the upgrade as close to move in date as possible to minimize the hassle.
Another common issue flagged with home inspections is ‘double tapping’ of circuit breakers (more than one circuit on a circuit breaker), This is against the Canadian electrical code. A panel upgrade will usually take care of this. In fact we can give you a good idea of cost by looking at the home inspectors report. Contact our office and let us know you are buying a house and the home inspector has some points that need looking at. We will be more than happy to help.
In some cases yes, but more commonly, we can remediate the aluminum wiring with a permanent fix without removing it. If needed, we can also rewire the house with minimal drywall damage. (Click here to find out more about Aluminum Wiring)
We find that many years of add-ons leave electrical panels a little worse for wear. Any electrician can add circuit to your panel but only an Expert can provide the level of job to our high standards.
