Why Upgrade Your Electrical Panel?

It’s easy to forget about your electrical panel until you start having problems. Here are a few reasons why it’s a great idea to upgrade sooner rather than later:

Enhanced Safety

An outdated electrical panel may struggle to handle modern appliances, leading to potential safety hazards like overheating or electrical fires. Upgrading ensures your home’s safety by meeting current safety standards.

Increased Electrical Capacity

We use more electronic devices now than ever, and older electrical panels may struggle to meet increased power demands. Upgrading provides more circuits and increased capacity, preventing tripped breakers and power outages.

Accommodating Modern Appliances

Newer appliances, such as high-efficiency HVAC systems, electric vehicles, and smart home devices, require substantial power. Upgrading your electrical panel ensures your home can comfortably accommodate all of your home upgrades over the years.

Home Expansion

If you’re planning to expand or remodel your home, upgrading the electrical panel is essential. More rooms mean increased power demands, and your existing panel may not be up to the task. Adding new circuits for additional rooms ensures your electrical system can support the expanded space.

Code Compliance

Electrical codes change over time, and an outdated electrical panel might not comply with current standards. Upgrading ensures your home meets the latest code requirements, avoiding unexpected fines and fees.

Signs You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade

It’s not always easy to know when you need to upgrade your electrical panel. When you know what to look for, you can schedule service with our licensed electrician before the problem gets worse. Here are a few signs to watch out for:

Tripping Breakers

You should be able to run your blender and your dryer simultaneously with no problems. If you find yourself worrying constantly about tripping breakers, it’s time to schedule service. An upgraded panel can handle your power demands with no problems.

Dimming or Flickering Lights

If you turn on your hair dryer and the lights flicker, that is a clear sign that your panel cannot handle your power demands. Once you upgrade, you won’t have to worry about flickering lights as you go about your day, using different gadgets and appliances. 

Burn Marks or Melting

Any visible changes to your electrical outlets is a cause for concern. When your electrical panel overheats, you may notice burn marks or even melting on your outlets. Contact a licensed electrician right away if you notice any damage on your electrical outlets.

Outdated Panel Type

Certain panel types, like Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) or Zinsco, have a history of safety issues. If your home has one of these panels, upgrading is highly recommended.
