Electrical Panel Upgrade Services
Your electrical panel is responsible for regulating the electricity flowing through your home, ensuring the safety of your property and loved ones. Over time, older electrical panels may struggle to keep up with the increased electrical demands of modern households. At Excellent Electric Houston, we specialize in professional electrical panel upgrades to meet your home’s growing electrical needs and ensure optimal performance.
The Importance of Electrical Panel Upgrades
As appliances, electronics, and gadgets become more energy-efficient, the average household consumes more electricity than ever before. If your home is more than 10 years old, it may not have the capacity to handle these increased electrical demands. Upgrading your electrical panel is crucial for maintaining safety, preventing overloading, and improving energy efficiency.
How an Electrical Panel Works
The electrical panel serves as the central distribution point for electricity in your home. It receives power from the main line connected to your electric company’s meter. Inside the panel, circuit breakers distribute the main power line into smaller branch lines, providing electricity to different areas and appliances in your home. The panel’s main power breaker controls the entire system, allowing you to shut off power when needed.
Signs You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade
- Flickering lights or appliances not running at full power.
- Circuit breakers frequently tripping or failing to trip.
- Crackling sounds or warm temperatures from the electrical panel.
- Corrosion, rust, or outdated components in the panel.
- Outlets near water sources lacking ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs).
- Reliance on extension cords due to insufficient outlets.
- Homes with 60-amp or 100-amp electrical service struggling to power appliances.
- Older homes with fuse block or split-bus panels lacking a main breaker.
Planning Renovations and Additions
If you’re undertaking a major home improvement project, it’s essential to assess your increased power requirements. Room additions, kitchen remodels, and the installation of high-demand appliances may necessitate an expanded electrical panel, additional circuits, or a sub-panel for a generator.
