Why do you need a heavy-up?

Many older homes use 100-amp systems, many of which are connected to fuse panels instead of circuit breakers. These 100-amp systems weren’t built to handle modern electrical needs, such central air, modern appliances, and always-on computers. Older panels do not have a main breaker either, so a short circuit doesn’t just turn off the electricity—it can result in a major electrical fire.

During a heavy-up, electricians from John Nugent & Sons will replace your panel and service cable with a larger, safer one. It requires a permit and must be completed by a licensed electrician. After your panel has been replaced, it must be inspected by the power company. The end result is more stable power, better grounding, plenty of space for additional circuits, a 200-amp main breaker, and no more hazardous, rusty parts to worry about.
