Circuit Panel Upgrade or Heavy Up Additions
A heavy-up circuit is a type of electrical circuit that is designed to handle a higher electrical load than a standard electrical circuit. This is typically achieved by increasing the size of the conductors and equipment used in the circuit, such as the wires, switches, and breakers. Heavy-up circuits are often used in commercial settings, or occasionally home-based businesses where there is a need for a large amount of electrical power to support machinery, lighting, or other high-demand equipment. The term "heavy-up" refers to the process of upgrading an existing electrical circuit to handle a higher electrical load.
Circuit panels may need an upgrade because they're outdated, don't have enough circuits, or you've done an addition or added additional features to your home that require more circuits. Installing a pool or hot tub are just 2 examples of upgrades that might require an update to your circuit panel. We also install circuit panels for new construction of Additional Dwelling Units (ADUs) and other residential buildings.
There are other reasons to have a dedicated circuit besides the electric car charger mentioned above. You may be installing a pool or hot tub that requires it's own circuit for safety or code requirements. You may be running power down to your outbuildings or adding air conditioning or an electric stove to your home where you had none previously. There are a variety of reasons you may need a dedicated circuit - we can help you make the need a reality!

A: A basic wiring and electrical repairs will run from $200 for a basic repair to over $800 for more complex issues and installations. Each company may have a different way of charging to come out.
