Lauterborn Electric was in the Manayunk area of Philadelphia to upgrade a main electrical service from 100 amps to 200 amps. There are many reason to upgrade your service to 200 amps.
The reason why this homeowner wanted a service upgrade was because they need more power for projects they are planning in the future. An electric oven, electric dry and electric car charger are the things they plan on installing down the line.
The customer knew what he wanted. He requested the exterior be done in EMT and wanted a 40 circuit panel. This panel size is the standard for us to provide for a 200 amp service but we tend to use PVC for the piping on the exterior.
This customer needed more space as their 100 amp panel was full with twin breakers. We also had to run new grounding as it needed to be sized properly for a 200 amp service.
