Panel Upgrades and Generators
Are you concerned that your electrical panel is dangerous or outdated? Don’t worry, we can help.
Your electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system. If the heart (panel) stops working or malfunctions, you have a big problem and safety issue for you and your family. As a result, if your panel isn’t working as seamlessly as it used to or is a little older, it’s time for an upgrade.
Most old panels don’t have enough breakers to accommodate today’s modern conveniences. Too many items on a single breaker can cause the breaker to trip and cause frustration and harm.
With the large amount of electrical equipment found in the modern home, it’s no wonder that electrical upgrades are becoming more common. Handling the electrical needs of today’s homeowner is no small task, and to keep everything running smoothly, new electrical wiring is often a necessity, especially in homes built many decades ago.
Some specific signs that your electrical panel needs an upgrade include:
- Buzzing, sizzling, or crackling noises in your outlets
- Flickering lights
- Outlets that only work sometimes
- Outlets that don’t work at all
- Outlets that are hot to the touch or have burn marks
- Home is 15 years or older
- See sparks when you turn on a switch
- Breakers trip frequently
- Exposed wires
- Loose breakers or screws in panel
- Multiple wires attached to one breakers
- Aluminum wiring
- Major renovations
