Why You Want Us To Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
Your electrical panel is responsible for routing all the wiring that leads to the home from the main service line. It contains circuit breakers that cut off power to a circuit in the event of an overload. If the breakers weren't there, an unlimited supply of current would flow through.
The electrical panel is your safety net between your house and an over-flow of electrical power from the power plant. If the breakers and circuits cannot handle the modern load of the household, the situation is not good.
Most Common Signs That You Need A Panel Upgrade:
- Tripping breakers when using the vacuum cleaner
- Can use window a/c units without losing household power
- Can't use toasters, coffee pots, blow dryers, dishwashers together
- You plan to install new appliances in the house
- Using extension cords or power strips excessively
- You are remodeling
- Lights dim or flicker
- You feel a tingling when touching an appliance
- Any other reason breakers frequently trip
We can't convey enough how important it is to ensure your home is properly equipped with a reliable service panel and the right electrical capacity.
