Why Do You Need Electrical Panel Service?


There are a variety of reasons you might need service for your electrical panel

Why Might a Homeowner Need a New Electrical Panel?

The electrical panel, often known as the breaker box, is a key component in a home's electrical system. It serves as the hub for electricity entering from the power line and is then distributed to various circuits. Ensuring the electrical panel is up to date and functioning correctly is crucial for the safety and efficiency of your home's electrical system.

There are several reasons a homeowner might need to install a new electrical panel or replace an existing one:

Age and Capacity of Current Panel

If the panel is old, it might not be able to handle the electrical load of modern homes. Older panels may only provide 60 to 100 amps of electrical service, whereas most modern homes require at least 200 amps to safely power all appliances and devices. If your panel is old and frequently trips breakers, it may be time for an upgrade.

Home Renovation or Addition

Planning a significant home renovation or addition that includes adding more appliances or electrical outlets could necessitate an upgrade to your electrical panel. The additional load might be too much for the current system to handle. Similarly, if you're adding a major appliance such as a hot tub or an electric car charger, an upgraded panel may be necessary.

Safety Concerns

Certain brands of electrical panels have been identified as safety hazards and have been recalled or are no longer being produced. If your home has one of these panels, it's important to have it replaced as soon as possible.

Electrical Issues

If you're experiencing issues such as flickering lights, outlets that don't work, or breakers that constantly trip, these could be signs that your panel is failing and needs to be replaced.

The Importance of Hiring a Professional Electrician

Working with electrical systems can be dangerous, and mistakes can lead to serious injuries or even house fires. That's why it's critical to hire a professional electrician for any work on your electrical panel. We have the necessary training and experience to perform the work safely and correctly. We can evaluate your current electrical system, recommend the appropriate panel replacement or upgrade, and carry out the work in accordance with local building codes.

Your home's electrical panel is an integral part of your overall electrical system, and keeping it up to date is key to maintaining a safe and efficient home. When it's time for an upgrade, make sure you turn to a professional electrician for help.

Questions About Your Electrical Panel?

Several reasons might necessitate this. Your panel may be old and not able to handle the electrical load of modern homes. If you're planning a significant home renovation or adding a major appliance, your existing panel might not be able to handle the increased load. Also, some older panels have been identified as safety hazards and should be replaced.

Amp, short for Ampere, is the unit of measurement for electrical current. The number of amps your panel can handle indicates the total amount of electrical load it can manage. Modern homes usually require at least 200 amps to safely power all appliances and devices.

The module follows Google guidelines and adds FAQ schema.

Yes, for safety reasons, the electricity will need to be turned off during the installation or replacement process. Your electrician should be able to provide an estimate of how long the power will be off.

In some cases, minor issues may be fixable, but if the panel is old, frequently tripping breakers, or a known safety hazard, replacement is often the best and safest option.

A circuit breaker is a safety device in your electrical panel that shuts off an electrical circuit if it detects too much current, such as in the case of a short circuit or overload, preventing damage and potential fire risks.

Once the new panel is installed, your lights should be brighter, and you shouldn't experience any breaker tripping unless there's an overload or short circuit. If you notice anything unusual, like flickering lights or breakers that trip frequently, call your electrician to inspect the panel.
