What is an electrical panel anyway?
A building’s electrical panel is the source point of all its electricity. All electricity flows from the electric company, through the panel, and to the various locations in your home or business.
How can I tell if I need to upgrade my electrical panel?
There are a variety of reasons to upgrade, relocate, or repair your electrical panel. Schafer Electric Services, Inc’s professional team is experienced with each and every one.
The older your panel is the less safe it is. If your panel is 30+ years old, it’s worth it to have it looked at. Other signs you may need a panel upgrade include damage to the panel, rust due to age, noises coming from the panel, overheating, and even a recent renovation that increases the electrical load on your home.
