Electrical Panel Upgrades & Changeout Services for your Redlands, California Area Home
Electric panels connect the main power line to your home and distribute electrical current to the circuits within your home. Circuit breakers and fuses within the electrical panel protect against over currents. When installed by a professional electrician, electrical panels provide the best efficiency of power throughout your home.
There are a number of reasons electric panel upgrades and changeouts are necessary for your home. The experts at Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating can inspect your home and advise the best action.
Signs You Should Consider Electrical Panel Upgrade or Changeout
There are many signs an electrical panel may need to be replaced or upgraded. Some signs are potentially dangerous so contacting a licensed electrician is always the best practice. Be alert to any of these warning signs:
Sounds, Odors or Damage to Panel
These are the most dangerous indications of electrical issues. These are all potential fire hazards. If your electrical panel is making a buzzing noise or overheating, you should call an electrician immediately. Foul odors emitting from the panel, damage to the panel or damage to components within the electrical panel are also risks that require immediate attention.
Issues with Blown Fuses
A single blow fuse is not cause for alarm, but persistent issues with blown fuses may indicate issues. Replacing or even upgrading the circuit panel may improve the distribution and efficiency of power within your home.
Older than 25 years
Aging components may compromise the efficiency of the electrical panel. Inspection by an electrician is recommended if your electrical panel is older or you do not know the age of the electrical panel.
During home improvements, the addition of outlets, light fixtures and other devices may require replacement of the electrical panel. Just like remodeling your home, updating your electric panel assures your home is suited to your lifestyle and energy demands.
New appliances may strain the circuits within your home. Professional electricians will help install an electrical panel that aligns with the unique energy demands within your home.
Benefits of Replacing Your Electrical Panel
The primary benefit is safely managing the electricity entering and powering your home. Other benefits include expanding the circuits within your home, maximizing the efficiency of your home and protecting expensive appliances and devices against surges.
