The panel plays an essential role in your home’s electrical service and keeping it in good working order is essential for safety. At Discount Service Electric, we offer outdated electrical panel upgrades in Murrieta.
When to Replace Your Electrical Panel
Your electrical panel distributes electricity throughout your home to power the many appliances and devices you use. An older or outdated one may not have sufficient capacity to meet the needs of today’s families. These older panels were designed at a time when homes had far fewer appliances and electronics.
When Should I Replace My Panel Upgrade:
- You still have fuses, rather than circuit breakers -
Electrical panels that use fuses are just as safe as panels that have circuit breakers to stop the flow of electricity. But, often people don't want to have to deal with replacing a fuse each time they blow. It would be an upgrade to your home to switch to a circuit breaker based electrical panel.
- Breaker Trips Often -
Your circuit breaker is designed to trip when your home is drawing in too much electricity. But, if your home is doing this often, it could be a sign it's time to replace your old circuit breaker panel.
If you have noticed frequently tripping breakers, flickering lights, an inability to reset a breaker that has tripped, sparking when plugging something in, or discolored power outlets, your outdated breaker may be a safety concern. Replacing your electrical panel can prevent damage to your expensive equipment and electrical fires in addition to increasing the value of your home.
