Panel Change-Outs & Additions
Electrical Panel Upgrade
An electrical panel upgrade involves replacing an older or inadequate electrical panel with a newer and larger one to meet the power demands of modern homes. Here are some common reasons why you might need an electrical panel upgrade:
- Increased power demands: Modern homes require more power than older homes due to the increased number of electrical devices and appliances. An electrical panel upgrade can provide more power and accommodate additional circuits to meet the increased power demands.
- Safety concerns: Older electrical panels may not be up to code or have outdated components that can pose safety hazards such as electrical fires. Upgrading to a newer panel with updated components can improve the safety of your home.
- Home renovations: If you’re planning on renovating your home, an electrical panel upgrade may be necessary to accommodate the increased power demands of the new appliances, lighting, and electrical devices.
The process of upgrading an electrical panel involves shutting off power to the home, disconnecting the existing electrical panel, installing a new panel, and reconnecting the electrical circuits. This work should only be performed by a licensed and qualified electrician to ensure that the work is done safely and meets local electrical codes.
If you’re considering an electrical panel upgrade, it’s important to have your home’s electrical system inspected by a licensed electrician to determine if an upgrade is necessary and what the cost will be.
