Many older homes have undersized or outdated electrical service and distribution panels that aren’t able to support the electrical demand that many modern appliances put on your home’s electrical system. This causes many problems such as overloading and doubling up circuits which is dangerous and can lead to house fires. Hiring a licensed electrician to upgrade your electrical panel can help eliminate these potentially dangerous situations.
Below we have shared some questions to see if your home may be in need of a service or panel upgrade:
- Does your Home still have an old style fuse panel or an old circuit breaker panel?
- Are circuits overloaded? Have circuits been tripping?
- Has new wiring been added over the years? Does it meet code?
- Has your Insurance Company refused to renew your home insurance policy?
- Do you notice flickering lights?
- Do you have to turn off an appliance in order to use another plugged into the same circuit?
- Do you hear crackling sounds from the electrical panel?
- Do you see corrosion and rust on the circuit breakers?
- Does the interior of the electrical panel feel warm?
- Are appliances running at less than full power?
- Are all outlets near water sources – such as sinks, tubs, dishwashers and clothes washers –GFCIs (ground fault circuit interrupters)? All of these areas require GFCI outlets to stop the electricity and prevent electrocution if any appliance comes in contact with water.
- Are you always using extension cords?
- Does your home have a 60-amp electrical service?
