Reasons You May Need An Electrical Panel Upgrade

Your electrical panel is a device that help to regulate your home's electricity. The circuit breaker within the electrical panel will be tripped if it notices that the electricity is going to overload your home's electrical system. Overloads can result in fires and cause big problems for you and your home.

Below we have 4 reasons you should upgrade your electrical panel:

Old Electrical Panel

Electrical panels that are old are only supposed to last about 25 years. When your home has a panel that is older than that, it's at risk of a major failure.

Circuit Breaker Trips Often

When your system is working the way it is supposed to, the circuit breaker won't interrupt the electrical flow of your home very often. But, if your circuit breaker is constantly tripping, your electrical panel may need an upgrade.

Burning Smell

If you noticed a burning smell, it could be your circuit breaker over heating or over loading. Cut the power and call us immediately.

The Panel Feels Warm

You don't need a fire to warn of a potentially harmful electrical problems. If you notice that your electrical panel feels warm, this is a red flag that their may be damaged or frayed wires behind the panel. Call us for expert electrical panel upgrades.

What Is the Typical Electrical Panel Size for Homes?

The standard electrical sizes for homes are 100, 200, or 400 amps.

  • 60 Amp Electrical Panel: These can be found on older homes from the 1950s or earlier. Most homes will upgrade from this amperage since it is usually not sufficient for modern appliances.
  • 100 Amp Electrical Panel: This is the current minimum amperage set by the National Electrical Code. This size is common for smaller homes or residences that rely on gas power for appliances.
  • 150 Amp Electrical Panel: This can be found on some newly constructed homes, but it is generally rare.
  • 200 Amp Electrical Panel: This is the modern standard for newly constructed homes.
