Electrical panels require work that should be completed by a licensed electrical.
The electrical panels and fuse boxes, sometimes called breaker boxes or electrical service panels, are the main hub through which electricity flows into your home. It’s the first stop electricity makes from the outside power distribution grid into your home.
Replacing old electrical panels with new ones does not necessarily mean you are required to increase amp usage for your home. Most people choose to raise the amperage to 200 amp because the convenience of modern living is enhanced by the use of different types of appliances.
A licensed electrical contractor is the best resource to help you calculate your household’s amperage needs. Keep in mind, however, that if the circuit amperage exceeds the size of the electrical panel or electrical fuse, it will trigger the new circuit to turn off.
Our local licensed electricians have the experience and skill to get the electrical panel or fuse box installation done correctly the first time.
You should get an electrical service panel upgrade if your current one is more than 20 years old, especially if you have replaced older appliances with new appliances. Newer appliances have different electrical needs. Older panels often do not meet updated safety standards for UL-approved electrical codes, increasing the risk of electrocution and fires. Additionally, constant shortages can damage sensitive electronics like computers, HDTVs and entertainment systems in your home.
An electrical panel upgrade is also a good idea if you’re considering selling your home. Many insurance companies may deny insurance coverage to homes using an older fuse box. Most times, they will only sign off on a sale if an outdated box is replaced with an electrical panel.
