If you have concerns about your electrical panel, call (727) 353-5186 for an inspection from a qualified electrician.
When to Upgrade the Electrical Panel
Technology has expanded rapidly in recent decades, and today’s homes require far greater electrical capacity than homes built in the past. Since older houses were built for a time when homes did not have the power-hungry appliances and electronic devices that are so common in modern homes, the electrical system may not be sufficient.
Signs of a problem with the electrical panel include:
- Rust or corrosion on the panel or circuit breakers
- Constantly tripping circuit breakers
- Flickering lights
- Buzzing or sizzling sounds coming from the panel
- Ungrounded outlets
- Lack of GFCI outlets
- Using too many extension cords due to not enough outlets
- No room for expansion in the existing panel
The type of panel that is in your home can influence decisions about panel replacement. If your older home has a fuse box, rather than a panel with circuit breakers, it’s probably time for an upgrade. In addition, if you have one of the panels made by Federal Pacific that are known to be unsafe, it is best to replace it with a safe, modern electrical panel.
Electrical Panel Upgrades & Replacements
If you have concerns about your electrical panel or your home is more than 20 to 30 years old, your panel may need to be replaced. A licensed electrician can inspect the panel to determine the overall condition and identify any issues that may require replacement. Upgrading an outdated panel improves the safety of your electrical system and prevents issues related to problems with the panel or circuit breakers.
Choosing the right electrical panel with sufficient capacity to meet your electricity demands is essential for safety and convenience. The size of your home influences decisions about the electrical panel because it is important to make sure you have enough capacity to meet your home’s electricity needs and extra slots to expand in the future and add circuits, when needed.
Replacing an electrical panel requires a licensed electrician to secure the necessary permits and make sure your new panel meets all electrical code requirements. The electricity coming into your home is high voltage and a mistake in replacing the panel can have deadly consequences. A qualified electrician will make sure the work is done incorrectly and safely.
