What Is an Electrical Panel?
Your electrical panel is vital for the safety and performance of all the electric-powered devices in your home. It receives incoming power from your utility provider and distributes it to each circuit.
If there's a power surge, it'll trip the mechanical switch within the breaker and can be switched back on. Your electrical panel ensures a smooth, consistent flow of electricity to your lights, appliances, and more.
It's similar to a fuse box, which uses fuses rather than circuit breakers to perform this function. However, with a fuse box, power surges cause the metal filament within the fuse to overheat and melt. When this happens, the fuse must be replaced.
Benefits of Upgrading Your Electrical Panel
There are plenty of benefits to upgrading your electrical panel:
- Easily add new appliances and devices, including smart home systems, whole-home generators, and more
- Lower monthly energy bills
- Ensure more reliable electricity for existing devices
- Improve safety, reliability, and performance
- Increase voltage
- Ensure electrical code compliance
Signs You Need To Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
Protecting your home's electrical safety starts with closely monitoring your electrical panel's performance. If you notice any of the following issues, it may be time to consider upgrading to a new panel:
- Scorch marks on the panel
- Buzzing and crackling sounds from the panel
- Flickering lights when you use appliances
- Frequently tripped breakers
- Burning odors from the electrical panel
- No more available circuits
Age is the biggest indicator that you need an upgrade. It's the best option if your electrical panel is over 40 years old or original to your home.
