Electrical Panel Replacements & Upgrades
Electrical Panel Replacement
It’s essential to get an electrical panel upgrade to match the amount of electricity your home is consuming. Here are two common signs that it’s time for an electrical panel replacement:
- Out of Date Panel
Some of the newest appliances require more energy than ever before to keep up with their advanced systems. If you’re thinking of upgrading your home to include these new appliances, be sure to check the amount of energy that they consume. You may need an electrical panel upgrade to meet these greater energy demands. A newer panel will also come with more up-to-date safety features.
- Your Panel Starts Tripping
When your electrical panel starts tripping, you have a problem. This means your panel is overheating due to the amount of energy you’re using. Your circuits are being damaged in the process and can’t keep up. It could also be due to the type of wiring you have in place. Vacuums, microwaves, and even AC systems can cause tripping to occur.
Federal Pacific Electric
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission says Federal Pacific breakers are dangerous.
These panels could:
- Fail to trip the breaker during an overload.
- They may lock-up and may not trip more than once.
- Old Stab-lok breaker connection.
Federal Pacific Electrical Panels cause 2,800 electrical fires each year because they do not trip the breaker. They cut corners on materials to make their panels, As a result, their electrical panels are unreliable and unsafe.
