Upgrade Your Summer

June 6, 2023 | Blog

It looks like summer is finally here, Chicagoland! Things may be heating up outside, which means it’s time to keep things cool inside. Here at Arnold Electrical Services we’ve been keeping air conditioners running across Chicagoland for 15 years, and we’ve found that the key to keeping them performing at full force all summer long can be as simple as an electrical panel upgrade.

What’s An Electrical Panel Upgrade?

The electrical panel is the bridge between your power grid and all the electrical connections in your home. You know the box full of fuses you flip back on after a power outage? The wiring, panels, breakers and fuses inside are your electrical panel. Keeping them in tip-top shape is essential for efficiency — and a cool summer.

Air Conditioning Upgrade

There’s nothing worse than air conditioning that’s cool… but not as cold as it should be, especially during the hottest time of the year. Upgrading your electrical panel can add an additional circuit just for your air conditioner. This can ensure your AC unit always has all the power it needs to keep your home cool.

Pump Up Your Pool Pump

If you have your own backyard swimming pool, it’s no secret that the time you get the most usage out of it is summer. We all know how short summer can feel here in Chicagoland, and the last thing anyone wants is to have anything — including an electrical issue — stand between you and taking a dip on a hot day. Adding a separate panel just for your pool pump can make sure your personal watering hole can run at full capacity without interruption all summer long.

Make The Great Outdoors Greater

An electrical panel upgrade can be the difference between having a poorly or perfectly functioning electrical system, but it can also open up a whole new world of outdoor summer activities. An additional panel can can be dedicated purely to outdoor power with a whole additional set of outlets. That means everything from speakers and projectors to outdoor lighting or even a hot tub could transform your back yard into the neighborhood summer destination.

Upgrade Your Efficiency With Arnold Electrical

Even if you aren’t adding anything new to your home, an upgraded electrical panel could still be a solid option for your home — especially if you haven’t had your system checked in a few years. A new panel means better electrical management, regulating your whole system to ensure nothing gets too much (or too little) power.

When you’re a member of the Arnold Electrical Services Good Neighbor Club, a one-time payment of $99.99 will have one of our experts stop by for a full electrical system maintenance check every year, and it will provide 15% off seasonal promotions and offers.
