When Should You Consider an Electrical Panel Upgrade?
So you’re probably wondering if your home is one that may require
an electrical panel upgrade. Of course, it may be more obvious if your
panel is very old and hasn’t been updated. Like we mentioned above,
if your home was built prior to the 1960s or 1970s, there is a very high
likelihood that you’ll need a panel upgrade to keep up with today’s
capacity. If your home isn’t as old, there are a few other signs
you can look out for to help determine what you should do.
Some signs you need electrical panel replacement include:
New appliance installation – When you think of appliances, you may think of something small
like a toaster or a blender. However, if you’re installing something
much larger like an air conditioner or space heating appliance, you’ll
certainly want to upgrade to an electrical panel that can handle all of
Noticeable problems with your electricity – If your lights are dimming or flickering or you hear a buzzing
or get a shock when you turn on a light or appliance, these might be signs
that your current electrical panel is struggling to keep up with the demand.
Your home has fuses – If your home still has fuses, it may be time to upgrade to circuit
breakers. Fuses were designed at a time before homes used so much electricity
and can be at risk for starting a fire and need to be replaced when they
are “blown”. Circuits simply need to be reset. Additionally,
home insurance companies may be weary to insure your home if it still
has a fuse system.
One tripped circuit after another - Just because you have a circuit breaker, it doesn't mean you're in the
clear. If your circuit breaker isn't up to the task of properly regulating
your home's electrical grid, it will trip repeatedly. If this is the case
then make sure to contact our Hanover electrical panel upgrade experts.
You use extension cords and power strips – If you’re running out of places to plug in appliances and
are resorting to using extension cords or large power strips, that’s
a good sign that you need a new electrical panel along with additional outlets.
You have future plans that will require more electricity – Even if your home is keeping up with your current demand, it’s
important to consider what the future holds for your home and your family.
Are you having more kids? Purchasing a major appliance? Rather than wait
until you experience issues with a panel that can’t keep up with
your new demand, consider upgrading it beforehand so that you’re ready.
Rust in your electrical panel - If you ever see signs of rust in or around your electrical panel, then
contact our Hanover electrical panel replacement specialists. Rust usually
accumulates where there's excess moisture and water and electricity can
be a dangerous combination so act swiftly.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should upgrade. If you’re
still not sure, our electrical panel technicians are happy to help. We

Why Upgrade Your Electrical Panel?
Upgrading your electrical panel is an important investment that can provide
numerous benefits for your home's safety and functionality.
Here are some reasons why you should consider upgrading your electrical panel:
Increased electrical capacity: An upgraded electrical panel can handle a higher electrical load, allowing
you to power more appliances and devices without the risk of overloading
Improved electrical safety: Older electrical panels may not meet current safety standards and could
pose a fire hazard. By upgrading to a modern panel, you can ensure that
your home's electrical system is up to code and reduce the risk of electrical
Support for new technology: If you're planning to add new appliances, a home office, or an electric
vehicle charging station, an upgraded electrical panel can provide the
necessary capacity to support these additions.
