The Leviton® Smart Load Center
Monitor Your Home's Energy Consumption and More with a Revolutionary Smart Circuit Breaker System from Leviton®
Are you thinking of upgrading the electrical system
of your older home? It's a smart move — one that adds to your home's safety and functionality in a way that lets you operate all of today's electronics. If it's time to upgrade and replace your home's existing breaker box, as your Greenville electrician
we want to recommend a giant leap forward in electrical systems: The Leviton Smart Load Center.
What Is The Leviton Smart Load Center?
The Leviton Smart Load Center
is a revolutionary circuit breaker system that incorporates smart technology into both the breaker box and the individual circuit breakers, connecting your home's electrical infrastructure directly to the internet and the cloud. Its smart circuit breakers work with an integrated Wi-Fi hub that lets you manage your home's electricity directly from your smartphone
. That means you know what's going on and can be in control of how you're using electricity.
Benefits of the Leviton Smart Load Center
The Leviton Smart Load Center
handles everything a standard breaker panel does while also providing the capacity to turn your home into a smart home. At Upstate Electrical Solutions
we hope to install these Smart Panels on all remodels and upgrades to older homes' electrical systems. Take a look at some of the advantages and benefits of installing a Leviton Smart Load Center.
You Can Monitor Your Energy Use
The Leviton Smart Load Center lets you monitor your energy consumption at a granular level
. You can track use over a specific period of time, ranging from a single day to an entire year, and you can even see how much energy-specific circuits in your home are using to root out appliances or uses that are energy hogs
You're in Control of Your Energy Use
Because the Leviton Smart Load Center connects with an app on your smartphone
, you can turn off individual circuit breakers remotely. No matter where you are, you can see the status of your electrical system, notice any critical load issues, and deal with them immediately.
Thanks to this feature, you're able to plan ahead for high-use times of the year (such as your summertime need for extra air conditioning), and you know exactly how to modify your energy use year-round to save energy and money
You Receive Helpful Alerts
If a circuit breaker trips, with the Leviton Smart Load Center, you know about it immediately, thanks to alerts sent to your phone. That means you can take immediate action to get medical devices, aquariums, freezers, and other electrical appliances up and running again. You also get notifications if an electrical load isn't drawing power for an extended time.
Because these notifications take you straight to the issue at hand, you don't end up staring at your breaker panel wondering what's going on. You can even customize alerts, so you get instant notifications about specific breakers.
You're Protected Against Electric Shocks (and Worse)
Leviton's ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) and arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCI) act speedily to shut off electrical power in the event of ground faults and arc faults. This shields you from being shocked or even electrocuted as well as protecting against fires started by arc faults. In fact, Leviton's GFCI exceed Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standards for End of Life protection

Other Electrical Upgrades to Consider: Arc Fault Protection and EV Charging Stations
As you plan your electrical upgrades, you may want to consider a couple of other expansions that can augment your home's safety and get you ready to move into the future. At Upstate Electrical Solutions, we strongly recommend arc fault protection and EV charging stations.
Arc Fault Protection
Homes built before 2014 are often at risk of fires caused by electrical arcing
— and if your home was build before 1999 and you haven't upgraded your electrical system, the danger is even more significant.
That's why we recommend installing arc fault protection
. Arc fault circuit interrupters monitor electrical flow within your home and shut down electricity the moment they detect abnormal activity. As a result, you're protected against electrical fires sparked by electrical arcs. These can occur from seemingly innocent acts, such as hammering a nail into a wall and hitting an electrical wire without even realizing it. Damage to electrical wires by rodents or moisture can also precipitate arc faults. Adding AFCIs to your electrical system brings you up to code and adds a much-needed layer of protection.
The highway is going electrical, and if you don't have an electrical vehicle (EV) now, you're likely to have one in the not-too-distant future. At Upstate Electrical Solutions, we have deep experience installing Tesla charging stations as well as car charging stations for any other model of EV
An EV charging station
is one of the most forward-looking upgrades you can make in your home, whether you're planning for your own future or thinking of selling your home in the coming years. Businesses as well can attract customers and employees by supplying EV charging stations.
When you hire us as your licensed Greenville electrician
to handle your panel upgrades, you can rest assured that we're ready to provide all the electrical services you need safely and reliably.
