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 by a highly-skilled Master Electrician like the ones at Bonney.
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.
There are several signs you may need an electrical panel upgrade. If the lights dim or flicker any time a major appliance comes on. Another warning sign is 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.
If you notice any of these warning signs call a local electrician like Bonney as soon as possible.
