What Does an Electrical Panel Do?
The electrical panel or main service panel in your home is responsible for safely distributing the electricity from your utility company to each area of your home. It divides the incoming power into separate circuits while protecting against overheating wires, overcurrent conditions, short circuits, and more by using circuit breakers that can turn off each circuit independently.
Standard breakers help prevent fires, while ground-fault circuit breakers can help prevent electrocution and injuries.
Common Electrical Panel Capacities
Modern homes typically feature between 100- and 200-amp electrical panels, while larger homes with all-electric appliances may have up to 400-amp panels.
If your home is over a few decades old, it may have a 60- to 100-amp service panel, or worse, a panel with fuses instead of circuit breakers. In both cases, it’s important to upgrade your electrical panel.
Call (855) 557-7878 today or contact us for help determining if your electrical panel has enough capacity to meet your household needs.
Signs You Need To Upgrade Your Home’s Electrical Panel
Circuit panels can last anywhere from 25 to 60 years before they need to be replaced due to age or material degradation, but if your electrical demand is approaching the panel’s maximum current rating, you may need to upgrade sooner.
Call Peaden to discuss an electrical panel replacement if you notice any of these electrical issues:
- Breakers that trip frequently
- Breakers that are hot to the touch
- Buzzing sounds from breakers or outlets
- Burning plastic or smoky odors
- Scorch marks or visible arcing
- Lights that dim or blink when large appliances start
- No open slots for new breakers or additional circuits
- The panel is older than 25 years or has physical damage
An electrical panel upgrade can give you more power for high-demand appliances while improving the safety and performance of your electrical system.
