When to Replace an Electrical Panel
Are you concerned about electrical issues you have been experiencing? These problems could be the result of a faulty electrical panel, and now might be the right time to replace it.
The signs that your electrical panel may need to be replaced include:
- One or more of your circuit breakers keep tripping
- Your electrical panel feels warm to the touch
- Unpleasant odors coming from your electrical panel
- The lights flicker when you turn on certain appliances
- Humming or buzzing sounds coming from the panel
- Scorching on the breakers or other components
If you’ve recently moved into an older home or it’s been a while since your electrical panel was checked out, it’s a good idea to have a professional inspection. During the inspection, your panel’s performance will be tested to see if any issues require a replacement. It could be that your panel may only need a minor repair.
Although your electrical panel might be fine, you might still be experiencing flickering lights or other electrical issues simply because your electrical service is undersized for your power demands. Even if your home has a 100-amp service, you likely don’t have enough power to accommodate all your power-hungry appliances and devices. In this case, you may need to upgrade to a 200-amp service to ensure your panel can safely supply enough power.
Ensuring Your Electrical Panel Is Safe
Your home’s electrical panel is the mission control of your electrical system. If it is not functioning properly, it can cause numerous additional issues. It is critical that you have a panel that performs safely and effectively, helping you to avoid hazardous conditions. One type of panel to watch out for is any made by Federal Pacific. Although these panels are no longer being produced, many older homes still have them installed. These panels have been linked to numerous fires and are not considered safe. If you think your panel was installed before 1990, check inside to see if it has a Federal Pacific label. If so, you should call us to have it replaced right away.
