If you own an older home in Toronto, you may have noticed that it probably isn’t keeping up with today’s demands for electrical service. Modern appliances as well as technological devices have made it so we consume more energy and require more electrical outlets. That means that it’s probably time to upgrade your electrical service. Most of Toronto’s older homes were equipped with 100-amp electrical service – enough to power life decades ago, but not today.

To upgrade your home to 200-amp service, call on KNT Electric in Toronto. Our teams are led by a licensed master electrician, and we’re experienced in upgrading electrical service fully compliant with electrical code and best practices.



Upgrading your electrical service from 60 or 100 amps to 200 amps along with replacing your electrical panel. That’s because the panel would need to accommodate additional circuits. Electrical panel replacement can also become necessary when some specialty breakers are added; or when your insurance company requests that you change the panel from fuse breakers (which are associated with risk) to a breaker panel.

At KNT Electric in Toronto we only use high-quality electric panels. Our work is always conducted and/or supervised by a Licensed Master Electrician, and we’ve been serving older homes in Toronto with electrical circuitry repairs and replacement for over 30 years.

Hard to find helpful and honest guys in trades, but KNT are those guys. Tim came to our house to review our breaker panel. A previous electrician said we would have to replace the whole thing ($3-4K) and I wanted to get someone else to confirm that. Tim was honest and said it just needed a little cleaning and rust removal as it wasn’t terrible. Walked me through for 10 minutes what I would have to do and didn’t charge us at all. Thanks again for you honesty.

“Tim and Bill were extremely helpful and knowledgable. The quote and the final invoice was so detailed and they were happy to explain the process and make recommendations. The daily team was very professional and worked efficiently to make the process as smooth as possible. They cleaned up every day and when all was finished, left us small neat patches to re-paint. We are SO thankful to have found”

Knob And Tube Replacement In Century Old Home

“ Excellent work. Tim’s crew were professional in getting the work done on time as promised. As promised, most of their holes were the size of a golf ball and as invasive as possible. This was important to us as we wanted to minimize the cost of repairing our plaster walls. I would however recommend going with a professional taper to re-plaster the walls. All in all, no complaints.”
