Signs That It's Time To Upgrade Or Replace Your Electrical Panel

Whether you’re modernizing an older home, adding more appliances, or just wanting peace of mind, our licensed electricians are here to provide the highest quality electrical panel upgrades. Here’s some signs that you should upgrade your electrical panel:

  • Frequent Breaker Trips: If you’re constantly resetting circuit breakers, it’s a sign that your current panel can’t handle your home’s electrical load.

  • Overuse of Extension Cords: Heavy reliance on extension cords and power strips indicates that your home lacks sufficient outlets, which a newer panel can accommodate through additional circuits.

  • Age of Your Home: Homes older than 20 years with original panels are likely not equipped to handle modern electrical demands. Older panels may also lack modern safety features.

  • Flickering or Dimming Lights: If lights flicker or dim when you use appliances, it suggests that your panel is struggling to distribute power adequately.

  • Using Major Appliances Results in Power Issues: If running appliances like air conditioners, dryers, or microwaves causes issues elsewhere in your electrical system, your panel may be inadequate.

  • Addition of High-Power Appliances: Installing appliances that require a lot of power, such as HVAC systems or electric vehicles, may necessitate a panel upgrade to handle the increased load.

  • Panel Feels Warm or Makes Crackling Sounds: A warm panel or one that emits crackling sounds is a serious safety concern, indicating an immediate need for an inspection and possibly an upgrade.

  • Rust or Corrosion on the Panel: Visible signs of rust or corrosion on the panel or circuit breakers can indicate a risk of failure or fire and should be addressed promptly.

  • Use of Fuse Box: If your home still has a fuse box instead of a circuit breaker panel, upgrading is advisable to improve safety and convenience, as fuses are outdated and less capable of handling high loads.

  • Planned Home Renovation or Addition: Upgrading your electrical panel is often necessary when renovating or adding to your home to ensure the electrical system can support additional fixtures, outlets, and appliances.
