Due to the advancement of modern home technology and appliances, older homes may not have the capacity to handle the increasing demand for power. This can lead to circuitry overload, resulting in shortages, surges, disruptions, and even electrical fires. To prevent such hazards, our team offers free consultations during normal business hours to assess the specific needs of your home and recommend the appropriate panel upgrade. We start by examining all components of your electrical panel, including circuit breakers and busbars, to identify potential issues. We will then provide you with a detailed estimate and walk you through a precise plan for upgrades, maintenance, repairs, or panel replacements.
Overloaded circuits are often the underlying cause of issues in older electrical panels. Some signs of an overloaded circuit include flickering lights or the inability to use multiple appliances plugged into the same circuit. In more severe cases, a malfunctioning or defective panel can cause breakers to repeatedly trip or fail to trip altogether, putting individuals at risk of electric shock. Breakers that fail to trip can cause various problems, including melted wires from extreme heat or even fire and smoke. It's crucial to address these issues promptly and consult with a professional to ensure the safety of your home or business.
