Lauterborn Electric Lauterborn ElectricAn inspection report is usually a requirement when selling or purchasing a home.  Some of the issues that often arise from such a report are that the existing panel is either outdated, undersized, or the breakers are double tapped due to lack of space. In older homes in the Philadelphia area, the existing panel is sometimes the original installation which can be around 100 years old. The grounding of the main electrical system is also often a concern. Making sure your main electrical service is properly grounded is essential to the safety of your home’s electrical system. The images show the before and after of a panel upgrade in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. The panel upgrade allows for additional wiring with new breakers for all existing circuits. A grounding bridge was also installed to allow cable and phone installers to properly ground their systems.
