If you have encountered flickering lights, blown fuses, tripped breakers, unexplained power outages or switches and outlets that do not work in your home?
Properly functioning fuses and circuit breakers are critical to the electrical safety in your home. If your electrical panel is more than 40 years old it may need to be rejuvenated, replaced or upgraded. A service upgrade or “change out” is usually required when your home has a problem with the existing electrical service panel.
Wondering if your home needs a service panel upgrade? Most homeowners aren’t sure what a panel upgrade is, much less if their home needs one. The average life-span of a home is now more than 40 years. That means that many homes were built before most of today’s electrical appliances and gadgets were even invented. The steady increase of consumer electronic use and home energy consumption means that the electrical systems in many older homes can easily become overloaded. Upgrading or replacing important components can help prevent electrical emergencies before they occur and ensure that your electrical system is equipped to meet your energy needs and protect your family and property.
