The Importance of Professional Panel Upgrades
If your Fredericksburg home’s electrical panels are too old or inefficient to supply power to your larger devices or to provide power to multiple devices at once, they will continuously cause your breaker to trip. When you notice these issues, it is time to invest in an upgrade. Of course, to ensure that your panel is properly updated, only trust a licensed electrician to handle the operation.
Signs Your Electric Panel Needs an Upgrade:
Is It Time to Replace My Panel?
Electric panels should be replaced roughly every 25-40 years.
if your home is more than 20 years old it’s a good idea to have an electrician perform a safety inspection to make sure your current breaker does not pose any danger to your home.
It might be time to replace or repair your electrical panel if:
The breakers are designed to interrupt a sudden additional flow of electricity when your panel becomes overloaded. If your breaker trips randomly from time to time, this will not demand a total panel replacement, but you may need to have it repaired or potentially upgraded. However, constant tripping means that your old panel may need to be replaced with one that can handle greater amperage.
It’s one thing if you experience a “brownout,” where your lights don’t work well after a storm or during peak times. You may also only need a minor repair to the switches themselves. However, constant dimming is a bigger issue that will likely require a full panel replacement.
Outdated Electrical Panels
Sometimes, it is difficult to tell whether your panel just needs troubleshooting for a few minor issues, or if it requires total replacement. Fortunately, our licensed and insured Fredericksburg electricians understand the ins and outs of electrical panels and when to know that it’s time for a replacement. One of the primary reasons is an old, outdated panel.
If your panel was designed in the middle of the 20th century, it likely has a very inefficient design. Any panel which utilizes a split-buss system with several individual breakers instead of a designated, single breaker, needs to be replaced as soon as possible.571-619-1863
