Such an overload could result in shortages, surges, disruptions or worse yet, an electrical fire. Our team will help you avoid such hazards and advise you on the exact panel upgrade to meet the specific needs of your home. Our consultations are free during normal business hours. We begin a detailed estimate by checking everything in your electrical panel, from the circuit breakers to the busbar. We will walk you through any potential problems and finish with a precise plan for an upgrade, maintenance, repair, or panel replacement.
In most cases, overloaded circuits are the root of the problem in older electrical panels. You may suddenly notice flickering lights or you are unable to use multiple appliances plugged into the same circuit. Even worse, if a panel is not working properly or if the unit is simply defective, the breakers will continually trip or fail to trip all together leaving a person at risk of being shocked. A breaker that fails to trip can cause a host of problems like melted wires from extreme heat to fire and smoke
