About Town Electric in Milton, Ontario, knows that today’s homes demand a lot of power. With multiple televisions, computers, central air conditioning units and more all running simultaneously, your home’s power capacity can be heavily drawn upon.
What does this mean? Most homes these days are built with 100-amp service that can run most devices safely at the same time. However, many older homes may have only 60-amp service, even though the electrical panel looks new. This means you could end up blowing fuses or tripping breakers when you try to run the toaster and microwave together, for example.
