When to Consider an Electrical Panel Upgrade

- 2:54 pm - June 4th, 2021

The electrical panel in your home has a very important job of keeping you and your family safe. In order to do that properly, however, it’s important to make sure you’ve got a modern panel you can rely on. Here are a few tips to figuring out whether or not you might need an electrical panel upgrade!

Installing New Appliances

Modern appliances use a lot more electricity than older appliances and if your home’s electrical panel isn’t ready to deal with such a large change in power draw, you could be dealing with issues such as tripping circuit breakers and a risk of electrical fire.

Adding New Circuits

Home extensions and remodels can lead to new spaces that need power. Adding on these new circuits requires enough space in the panel, and if there isn’t enough space then that can put a damper on you enjoying your new home additions!

Using Too Many Power Strips

When homes are first designed and built, power usage is something that is considered. So when you begin using power strips because you have a shortage of power outlets, you could be over-drawing from your panel – which can be a safety issue! Additionally, using power strips for extended periods of time can be a safety hazard in and of itself.

It’s not all on you to figure out if a new electrical panel will help improve the safety of your home and family! The electricians over at E.T. Lawson are more than happy to help evaluate your current panel and determine if an upgrade would benefit you.
