If your home or commercial business has an older electrical panel, it’s time for an upgrade.
Not only are older panels difficult (or impossible) to insure, but they have insufficient room to add circuits or specialty breakers such as GFCI or AFCI.
Plus, some of the older panels are too small or replacement parts are too expensive.
Common Reasons for Panel Upgrades
When circuits are continuously blowing, causing a potential fire hazard
To prevent major corrosion and keep the breakers in good working order, a panel replacement is recommended after 20 – 25 years
Having a new, upgraded electrical panel is a selling feature
An addition will require additional space for new electrical circuits
Damage from damp basements and water create corrosion in a panel
A higher voltage outlet will significantly reduce an electric car's charging time
Getting the Right Panel for Your Home or Business
An electrical panel has an important role to play: it distributes the primary source of power to the branch circuits located throughout a home or building.
It also keeps all of the inhabitants and contents safe.
If a circuit faces a demand of too much electricity, a breaker is tripped in the panel to prevent electricity from overloading the wiring. But if a panel is malfunctioning or defective, the breakers will either trip regularly or fail to trip, possibly resulting in someone getting shocked.
A breaker that fails to trip can also lead to smoke and melted wires – and even fires.
Sometimes, a panel upgrade is completed as part of a service upgrade whereas other times it can be completed on its own.
