Does My Electrical Panel Need to be Repaired?
When your electrical panel is functioning as it should, you probably don’t think about it much. However, when your home starts to experience electrical problems, it is important to determine whether your panel is at fault. Failing to deal with an electrical panel issue in a timely manner can be extremely dangerous, and end up putting your whole home at risk. But remember, do not attempt to deal with an electrical panel problem on your own. Amateur electrical work is not only extremely hazardous, but is likely to only make things worse for your panel in the long run.
Signs your electrical panel may need a repair include:
- Your panel is warm to the touch
- Your panel is making strange noises
- Your panel is emitting a burning smell
- Your panel is having a hard time powering your appliances
- Your lights keep flickering on and off
- Your circuit breakers frequently trip
- There is rust/other visible damage on your electrical panel
Knowing When to Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
While the average electrical panel can last between 25 and 40 years, there are a number of reasons you may need to upgrade your electrical over time. For one thing, if you live in an older home, it is worth having your panel checked, as outdated electrical panels are often not able to support the needs of modern electrical systems. Moreover, countless homes across the United States that were constructed between the 1950s and 1980s using Federal Pacific Electric and Zinsco brand panels, and these devices were later linked to fires and electrocutions. So if there is even a chance you have a panel from one of these manufacturers, you are definitely going to want to call for an upgrade.
Another factor to consider is whether you are using a circuit breaker panel or a fuse box. While fuses and circuit breakers are designed to do the same thing (shutting off the flow of electrical current to a particular circuit to prevent damage to your appliances), circuit breakers are more convenient and cheaper than fuses, as they do not have to be replaced every time your breaker trips. Circuit breakers also respond faster than fuses, making them safer and more convenient for modern electrical systems.
Ultimately, there are numerous reasons you may have to replace your panel, from wiring problems to water damage to general wear and tear. The bottom line is that if your electrical panel doesn’t support your needs, it is always safer for you and your family to upgrade sooner rather than later.
