 Should I Upgrade My Electrical Service Before I Sell?

This is a question homeowners ask frequently. There are three reasons why a homeowner might want to upgrade their service. The first is basic safety, Secondly is to increase the electrical systems capacity, and thirdly and most important is to help sell your home faster. An upgrade of an electrical service typically involves an older residence with service size of 100 amps or less and the homeowner is deciding whether to increase the amperage. Another reason would be you might be stuck in the 60’s and still have fuzes, which is a fire hazard and in most states not insurable if the potential buyer is putting a mortgage on your home. If you are adding new appliance, such as air conditioning or a hot tub, an increase in service size may be required as well.

Benefits of an Electrical Service Upgrade.

  • Besides the increase in available amperage, a modern state-of-the-art electrical service will provide peace of mind knowing you and your family are protected 24/7.
  • Staying up to code with your town requirements
  • A new electrical service may also increase the value of your home and will most certainly be a selling point. In fact, many older electrical services will not pass inspection and will need to be replaced as a condition of the sale.

So why wait. Get it done and enjoy the peace of mind? If your local to Connecticut Call Ridgeline Electric for a free estimate today.
