Your breaker panel is the central hub that powers much of the comfort and convenience of your home. It’s the reason you’re able to blow dry your hair, turn on the lights, power your AC and more! Modern electrical equipment requires an electrical panel to be able to handle powering more appliances and devices than ever before. An electrical panel upgrade eliminates the inconvenience and hazard of power outages.
How do I know when my electrical panel needs upgrading?
Older breakers and fuse boxes were designed for a simpler time when powering an entire home required a much lower power capacity. Nowadays, our homes typically are in need of a breaker panel that’s capable of handling higher power needs. Take notice of these warning signs that can indicate that it may be time to upgrade:
- Your home is 25 years old or older
- Flickering lights
- Wavering power levels
- Frequent light bulb burnouts
- Constant circuit breaker trips/blown fuses
- You’ve added a new addition or new power-consuming appliances to your home
- Current panel is incompatible with newer equipment
