As the nerve center of the modern electrical system, your service panel controls the flow of electricity throughout your entire home. To ensure you always have safe, reliable power, Legacy Home Services offers easy and affordable electrical panel upgrades.
Is It Time for an Electrical Panel Replacement?
Owning a home isn’t cheap, so it’s understandable that most homeowners are hesitant to pay for potentially unnecessary upgrades. However, while a circuit breaker replacement isn’t exactly flashy, it may indeed be necessary. As a general rule, electrical panels should be replaced at least every 20 to 30 years.
Of course, there are also important reasons you may need to swap out your service panel even earlier. If you notice sparking, scorching, heat or burning smells, the panel is likely damaged and may pose a fire or electrocution hazard. Rust is another major red flag, indicating that the panel has been exposed to water or excessive moisture. Finally, listen for buzzing, hissing, and other audible sounds that may indicate worn or damaged equipment.
The Benefits of Upgrading Your Electrical Panel
Even if your breaker panel is intact and functioning properly, that doesn’t guarantee it’s capable of meeting your needs. Our homes today are packed with all sorts of electronic devices and appliances, putting an ever-greater demand on service panels. Whereas panels of the past rarely exceeded 100 amps, most experts now recommend at least 200-amp service to ensure sufficient power. Additionally, older systems were often designed with relatively few slots, making it difficult to add more circuits as necessary. By solving all of these issues at once, an electrical panel upgrade can:
- Supply plenty of power to prevent tripped breakers
- Provide ample room for expansion
- Raise the resale value of your home
