What is a heavy up?
At Kolb Electric, we get a lot of calls for what most customers refer to as a “heavy up.” A heavy up is an increase in the amperage (power) of your main electrical service. For instance, you may be putting in a home office or a new electric range, both of which may require more power. We can increase the amount of amps in your home; for example, we can increase your power from 100 amps to 200 amps to provide the level of power that your home may need. This essential service is needed so that homes, especially older homes in Washington, DC, can have the power necessary to run modern electronics.
When do I need a heavy up?
- You’re thinking of adding a new addition
- You’re planning on installing a major appliance, like a large television or electric range
- You want to install a new heating or cooling system
- You have an old electrical panel that presents a fire hazard or has been recalled

Heavy Ups in Washington, DC
Calling for a heavy up in Washington, DC has numerous benefits, including:
Better Electrical Performance –do your lights flicker when you turn on certain appliances? Does your breaker trip frequently for no apparent reason? A heavy up will take care of these problems, providing a more consistent energy supply throughout your home.
Improved Electrical System Safety –while most new electrical panels are designed with safety in mind, the same can’t always be said for panels built 30 years ago. Overloading the electrical panel can lead to major fire hazards, many of which could cost you your home. A heavy up can resolve these dangerous issues and improve the safety of your home.
Future Expansion –if you ever need to add circuits to your home, you’ll need a larger service panel. A heavy up gives you options, whether you need to really expand your electrical system (say by adding a new addition or central air conditioner) or you just need to add a few more outlets.
