Your Insurer Requires an Electrical Service Upgrade – What’s Next?
The first step is to find an electrician who puts your needs first. If your insurance company is refusing to maintain your current policy without an electrical service upgrade—we have the answers you need. We’ll make time to inspect your current infrastructure at your earliest convenience and suggest an economical way to satisfy your policy requirements.

Our engineering personnel will perform meticulous calculations, taking your current and future goals into consideration before suggesting the most suitable electrical upgrade.
Installing a surge protection when replacing a service panel is an economical way to add another layer of protection while the wiring is open. This will help prevent specialty machinery and expensive equipment from damages or ‘wear and tear’.
Electrical Panel Wiring Must Support the Service Panel Upgrade
When an electrical panel is upgraded, all electrician companies are required to inspect the surrounding electrical panel wiring to make sure it can support the new load of power. We are required—by law—because insufficient wire gauges and insulations can cause cabling to overheat and combust into electrical flames.
Why Upgrade Your Main Service Panel?
If your Olympia home is 20 years old or older, you may be running your entire household on as little as 60-amps. These days, new homes are built with at least 150-200 amps. If you plan to install appliances that require more power than what you are currently using, you will need to consider upgrading your main service panel. This will allow you to meet your power demands by drawing more electricity from the utility.
