When homes were built years ago, they had 60-amp or 100-amp services. More than 60-amp services are needed to power a modern-day home and all its electronics. However, a 100-amp service may still be fair to power less than 3000 square feet of a home if it has few electronics such as electric heat, central air-conditioning, and devices. However, as more and more electronics and appliances are added to dwellings, it may be time to contemplate upgrading your service from 100-amp to 200-amp or greater. It is also paramount to know if your service from the Utility Company is an overhead service or a confidential service.
An overhead electrical service has a wire running down or up the side of your residence into your electrical service meter base. Over time, this mast can show signs of age and may need to be replaced.
Underground service has a conduit or service wire running out of the ground into your meter base. Many more recent developments are going to confidential services so that there are no utility poles every couple of feet. Personal service can be valuable because you do not need to worry about trees falling on and pulling the exposed service cable off your home.
