Electrical Panel Importance

Is Your Electrical Panel Up To Spec?

Did you know electrical panels can become outdated and cause dangerous issues? Homes built more than 25 years ago are prime canidates for an upgrade due to the growth of power-hungry electronic devices and appliances. These devices and appliances can easily overload a home’s electrical system, causing breakers to flip and overheating. The best way to solve these problems is to upgrade your electrical panel.

What Your Electric Panel Is All About

A home's electrical panel funnels electricity to everything from your large TV and refrigerator, to your power-hungry cable and internet and home lighting. Power from outside is brought into your home through this panel and then branches out through your home or business. 

Your electrical panel may need service if any of these are happening:

  • Overheating circuit breakers that fail to trip
  • Flickering lights
  • Blown fuses or constantly tripping breakers
  • Melted electrical wires

You may need a new panel if:

  • Adding new heavy appliances due to home renovations
  • If you're adding electrical outlets
  • Insurance requirements
  • Installation of a 240 volt circuit
  • You need to add a sub panel
  • New home addition
  • You have a Challenger or Federal Pacific brand panel
