Electrical Panel Upgrade
Ensuring that your home’s electrical system is able to support the ever-evolving variety of electrical devices is crucial. Most modern appliances could easily overload an outdated electrical panel, which could cause issues for your home.
Identified by their gray or painted metal box, electric panels are usually mounted in rooms such as the garage, closet, laundry room, and even outside of your home.
Old electrical panels can cause a variety of problems such as flickering lights, fuses that blow frequently, and tripped breakers. In some situations, they can also lead to shocks, overheating, and fire which could put your family and home in danger.
It’s recommended that electric panels be upgraded when installing any large appliance such as HVAC units, stoves, washers, dryers, and more. Upgrades are also suggested when renovating your home to fully support the more modern appliances as well as the addition of any new outlets in your home.
Outdated electrical panels are easy to pinpoint since they commonly display the following:
- Crackling sounds
- Corrosion on the panel
- Overheating of conductors
- Appliances running at weaker power
- Lack of GFCIs in your home
- Outdated electrical systems
Upgrading your electric panel ensures that all of your new appliances are supported and that your family and home are safe from any dangers that might occur from overloading your system.
