When Should I Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
Here are several reasons why you might need to upgrade your electrical panel.
- Your current electrical panel has no room for the additional circuits you wish to add.
- Your current electrical panel cannot meet the load demands of your house. If you are consistently having problems with tripping breakers or blowing fuses, this may be the cause.
- Your current electrical panel is unsafe. Electrical panels typically have a life span of between 20 and 30 years. Old or unmaintained panels can become a safety hazard. If you think your panel is unsafe, call a licensed electrician immediately.
Even with today’s modern appliances that use energy more efficiently, the demand for electrical output in homes and small businesses continues to rise. If you think about it, it makes sense. More than ever, we rely on technology for every-day tasks. With all the additional electrically powered devices we use every day, the demand adds up. Older homes and businesses were simply not designed and built to handle the electrical demand that modern-day living requires.
Do New Homes Ever Require Electrical Panel Upgrades
Even homes and businesses that are relatively new may not have an adequate electrical system to support additions or remodels. Many modern day homes were designed to meet the electrical needs of a typical home of its size, but were not designed with expansion in mind. For instance, if you’re considering an addition to your home or business or if you’re planning a remodel, an electrical panel upgrade may be necessary to support the new electrical loads.
Even if you’re not expanding your square footage, just adding appliances, heating and cooling systems, or other general purpose electrical circuits results in additional demand on your electrical system. If your electrical panel doesn’t have room to add more circuits, or if the new circuits will put the electrical system over capacity, you will need an electrical panel upgrade.
Trying to use all of our modern devices and appliances in a home or business with an outdated or undersized electrical system will often result in tripped breakers, blown fuses, flickering lights, etc. So, if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms in your home or business, call Ampology Electrical Services today.
