When Should I Upgrade My Electrical Panel?

Your electrical panel diverts power throughout your space with various circuits. However, an outdated system often can’t manage the electrical requirements of constantly upgrading technology. 

A few reasons to upgrade your panel include:

  • It’s 25+ years old: If your electrical panel is original to the building, the wiring can be outdated, unsafe, and put you at risk for an electrical fire. Replace your wiring and other dangerous electrical components if you see sparks, smell burning, or notice flickering lights.
  • Your power demands have increased: If you’ve installed an addition, smart appliances, or an EV charger, you may need a new electrical panel to manage this increase in power. An outdated system may struggle to support these requirements and cause excessive wear and tear or a short circuit.
  • You’re overusing extension cords: Power strips are a great way to offer protection from power surges, but they shouldn’t be used at every outlet or filled with chords. Older homes have fewer outlets that may struggle to meet the needs of phone and laptop chargers or smart appliances. However, extension cords can overload your system, causing hot outlets and an electrical fire.

Don’t hesitate to upgrade your panel if your home or business meets any of these requirements. Our reliable electrical panel installation in Arlington increases available energy safely.

Common Electrical Panel Repairs

Your home has multiple circuits for every area of your home, and if you experience a breakdown with these breakers, you can lose electricity in significant spaces in your building. 

Typical circuit breaker issues include:

  • Overloaded circuits: Extension cords are the leading cause of an overloaded circuit. An overload will cause the breaker to trip, which is normal unless it becomes a frequent problem. This clearly indicates that there are not enough circuits in your space.
  • Electrical short: Miswiring or worn-out systems can cause a hot wire to touch a neutral wire and disrupt the electrical paths in your system, causing a short and damaging essential electronics. It’s important to always inspect an appliance chord for issues before plugging it in to prevent a short.
  • Ground fault: If a hot wire touches a ground wire, other metal, or water, energy will take the path of least resistance and cause an electrical hazard. This is common in outdated kitchens or bathrooms that don’t have GFCI outlets.
  • Hot-to-the-touch components: Your switches, outlets, and electrical panel should never be hot to the touch as this signifies miswiring. If you smell burning or see discoloration, immediately stop using that circuit, as it may spark and cause an electrical fire.

Skyline Construction Services is here for you when you need professional electrical panel repair in Arlington. It’s critical that you don’t attempt DIY repairs with your electrical system when our professionals are here to help keep you safe.
