Why do you want to replace your current windows? Perhaps it’s because they aren’t efficient–they’re letting warm (or cold, depending on the season) drafts in which means your HVAC system has to run longer to do its job of reaching your desired temperature.

It could be both of these factors combined–you have old, inefficient, and degrading windows and giving them an upgrade would increase the curb appeal and resale value of your home.

Whatever your reason, it’s understandable! And our team is here to help make sure your window installation goes off without a hitch. But what is it, exactly, that goes into a successful window installation? Read on to find out!

You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade If…

June 28th, 2021

If your electrical panel displays any of the signs we’re about to highlight below, then it’s probably time to give us a call for an upgrade. This will improve home safety as well as functionality.

More on that in a minute!

Also referred to as the circuit breaker panel, this is the central hub of your entire electrical system.

But when your electrical panel gets too overloaded, it can cause problems such as causing electrical shock or even fire.

Modern circuit breakers can last a long time–about 25-40 years in most cases. But the electrical panels of yesterday don’t last as long. Read on for the signs that you need an electrical panel…
