Service Upgrades

The most common situations which require a service upgrade are adding high consumption electric appliances or a legal suite to your home.


You may require a service upgrade if you intend to install a legal suite in your home. In order to have power separated in your home for a legal suite, you need to install a dual meter base. In addition to a dual meter base you may require a disconnect in order to comply with the Canadian Electrical Code.


You may require a service upgrade if you intend to add any high power consumption devices to your home in the future. Contact Axford Electrical to discuss your future electrical needs and we can help you determine whether or not a service upgrade is necessary.
