Signs It’s Time for a New Electrical Panel 

Although many homeowners don’t realize it, their home’s electrical panel performs an essential role in the safe operation of their electrics. An electrical panel is the mission control of the electrical system, responsible for the distribution of power. A home’s overall electrical capacity is determined by the number of circuits within the panel. When there are too few circuits to meet the household’s electrical demands, it’s time for an electrical panel upgrade. 

Electrical panels can also wear out or become damaged, which makes them ineffective. When this occurs, electrical systems may not operate as safely and efficiently as they should. 

There are several signs that an electrical panel may need to be replaced, including: 

  • The panel has fuses instead of breakers 
  • Lights often flicker 
  • Burning smells coming from the panel
  • Breakers trip frequently 
  • Electric shock when touching switches 
  • Rust on the electrical panel
  • The panel is more than 25 years old

Benefits of Installing a New Electrical Panel

Replacing an old or damaged electrical panel can provide homeowners with several benefits. For one, a home will be more protected from electrical fires and other safety hazards. Further, it reduces the risk of overloaded circuits and other issues that can damage electrical systems and devices. A new panel also provides the necessary power for the installation of new major appliances, such as an HVAC system, refrigerator, or washer and dryer. An electrical panel upgrade can also improve energy efficiency and lower monthly utility costs. It can even reduce insurance costs and increase the value of the home.

Is My Electrical Panel Safe? 

Most electrical panels can be relied on to operate safely and effectively for 25 years. When electrical panels are too old, they’re often unable to safely handle the home’s electrical load.  There are also certain types of panels manufactured in the past that are no longer recommended because of certain safety issues. For example, Zinsco panels have been obsolete for decades because they can fail to trip when there are short circuits or overcurrent. The Federal Pacific Electrical panel is another type that is no longer considered safe because it contains defective circuit breakers that can cause fires. 

Our professional electricians at Blau Sudden Service can help homeowners determine if their electrical panels are safe and offer advice about when the panel should be replaced.
