Signs Your Electrical Panel Needs RePair

Your electrical panel is critical to your electrical system's safety, efficiency, and functionality, which means that it’s important to recognize when it needs professional attention. There are several key symptoms that you can learn to recognize so that you can get your electrical panel the professional care it needs when it needs it.

Your electrical panel may need repairs if you’re noticing: 

  • Frequent circuit breaker trips: If your circuit breaker frequently trips, it indicates that your panel is struggling to handle your electrical load. This could be due to old age, wiring issues, or increased power demand from new appliances.
  • Burning smells or visible damage: A burning smell or any visible damage, such as burn marks or melted wires in or around your panel, are serious signs of a problem. It indicates overheating, which could potentially lead to a fire.

When To Upgrade or Replace Your Electrical Panel

The frequency of upgrading or replacing your electrical panel largely depends on the state of your current panel and any changes in your power consumption. However, there are a few everyday situations where an upgrade might be necessary.

Common reasons to upgrade your electrical panel include: 

  • Increased power demand: If you've added new heavy-duty appliances or electrical equipment to your home or business that require more electricity, an upgrade may be needed to handle the increased load.
  • Frequent tripping: If your circuit breakers trip often, it could indicate that your current panel can't handle your property's electrical usage and might need an upgrade.
  • A home or business expansion: If you're increasing the size of your home or business premises, you’ll likely require more power. In such cases, upgrading your electrical panel is often necessary.
  • An old or outdated panel: If your panel is over 20-25 years old, it may not be capable of handling modern electrical demands and could be less efficient and safe.
  • Home renovations: If you're renovating or remodelling, especially if you're adding more rooms or electrical outlets, an upgrade may be required.

If you think you might benefit from a panel upgrade, our team is here to help you make an informed decision. We can help you assess your current electrical needs and predict future needs to find the perfect new panel.
