It May Be Time to Replace Your Electrical Panel
Out with the old, in with the new
If your home was built before 1974 there is a strong possibility that the electrical panel was dynamite at the disco. However, to ensure the safety of you and your family updating the electrical panel in your home is a MUST. Your electrical panel is the most important part of your home’s electrical system, but gadgets and appliances easily overload electrical systems in many of today’s older homes. A faulty panel can turn your home into a death trap. As the power center of your home, the panel disconnects circuits if excess electricity flows through them by tripping circuit breakers. If it isn’t functioning correctly, not only will it risk shutting down all electricity to the house but also it will put you at risk of electrical fires. Relieve the stress of wondering about your loved ones’ safety by using one of our electrical pros to make sure you all have nothing to worry about.
Updating your electrical panel will not only provide safety but it will also distribute a consistent power supply throughout your home, resolving problems like flickering lights and frequent breaker trips or blown fuses. Upgrades can also allow for future expansion of your electrical system, or for the addition of just a few needed outlets. Overheating or unusual sounds emitted from your electrical panel may indicate potential fire hazards. Updating the panel can resolve dangerous issues and improve the safety of your home. To fix these problems and answer any questions, have one of our licensed electric techs here at ProMag come by a get you in good shape today.
