Electric Panel Replacement
The most important electrical unit in your home is the electrical panel, also known as the breaker box. It’s like the brain of your house’s entire electrical system! It constantly distributes electricity throughout your home, garage, and perhaps even the outside lights on the porch patio and yard.
The electrical panel also protects your home from power surges and other possible hazards. It’s important to keep your electrical panel maintained regularly.
Many people in older homes choose to upgrade their electrical panel to meet the demand of modern electrical appliances. One way to determine if your house doesn’t have enough power is if your circuit breaker frequently trips while multiple appliances are running simultaneously.
Overloading your circuit breaker can create a fire hazard. Too much electricity going through the wires can heat them up to very high temperatures.
No Longer UL Certified
What many homeowners do not know is that their electric panels are by brands that are no longer UL listed. UL stands for Underwriter Laboratories—a company that tests and certifies new products for safety. When a brand or product is deemed no longer safe, it will lose its UL certification. In addition to being unsafe for your home, these products will be irreparable. Parts and replacement pieces are often taken off the production line for these electric panels. As such, when you run into an issue, you will unquestionably need an electric panel replacement.
Signs You Need an Electric Panel Replacement
Are you wondering if your home needs an electric panel replacement? Thankfully, there are several signs you may need an electrical panel upgrade:
- If the lights dim or flicker any time a major appliance comes on
- When your electric panel brand loses UL certification
- If the electrical panel ever feels hot to the touch
- Rust, corrosion, or the breaker box constantly tripping are also signs you may need an electrical panel upgrade.
