Treasure Coast Electricians Specializing in Electrical Panel Upgrades
How do you know whether your home will benefit from an electrical panel upgrade? Panel upgrades can be a tough call to make if you are unfamiliar with what the electrical panel does for your home or if it is working as it should. You may not even realize that the panel is substandard, unsafe or inadequate.
Signs of an Aging or Bad Electrical Panel
Even if a panel appears to be working okay or you don’t think you’ve had any problems with it, there could be underlying issues. Because an electrical panel is so important to the normal, daily function of everything you do in your home or business, it is important it is in good condition.
An outdated or bad panel can be a fire risk as well as an electric shock risk. A bad panel is not something to be taken lightly or ignored.
Reasons to Replace an Electrical Panel
Panels that are older than thirty to forty years were simply not made with today’s technology in mind. Homes and businesses require a great deal more electricity than they did a few decades ago. The older panels are not equipped to handle the all the electrical demands of today’s world.
The typical life expectancy of an electrical panel is about forty to fifty years. If you know your panel is that old or possibly older, it wouldn’t hurt to have it inspected to learn more about what kind of shape it is in and how you could benefit from a new one.
