Is it time to upgrade or replace your electrical panel?
The electrical control panel, or "breaker box," is the heart and mind of your home’s electrical system. The panel connects to the power lines from the utility company and delivers the current to all of the different circuits running throughout your house. The panel is also home to the system’s main safety devices - the circuit breakers - that protect each circuit from overloads and other hazards.
An electrical control panel is a surprisingly simple system that nevertheless can be compromised by any number of problems, from faulty installation to weather and sunlight to plain old obsolescence. All problems with a service panel should be diagnosed and remedied by a qualified electrician, but here are some of the common reasons why you might need to repair or replace a panel or any of its parts.
Frequently, when a home is updated and renovated, the electrical wiring remains the same. This means that many homes are operating with insufficient electrical support for their modern electrical appliances.
