Signs Your Electrical Panel Needs Repair

Over time, electrical panels may develop issues that require prompt attention. Recognizing the signs of a failing panel can prevent electrical hazards and disruptions to daily life. 

Common indicators that an electrical panel needs repair include:

  • Frequent circuit breaker tripping – If the circuit breakers trip frequently, it may indicate an overloaded circuit or a faulty breaker.
  • Burn marks or odors – Burn marks or a burning smell near the electrical panel are red flags and require immediate attention. These signs suggest potential electrical arcing or overheating.
  • Outdated panel – If a home still has an older fuse box or a panel with limited capacity, it's advisable to upgrade to a modern breaker panel to meet the demands of contemporary electrical usage.
  • Corrosion or rust – Corrosion on the panel components can compromise its functionality. Rust or corrosion may be a result of moisture infiltration, and addressing it promptly is crucial.

Upgrade to a Modern Electrical Panel

If your home is still equipped with an outdated electrical panel, it may be time to consider upgrading to a modern, more efficient model. Older electrical panels may not be equipped to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and electronics, which can lead to safety hazards and power outages. Our team at Bickimer Electric can assess your current electrical panel and recommend the best upgrade options to ensure the safety and efficiency of your home's electrical system.

Benefits of upgrading to a modern electrical panel include:

  • Increased electrical capacity
  • Enhanced safety features
  • Compatibility with modern appliances and electronics

How to Determine the Appropriate Size & Capacity for a New Electrical Panel

When determining the size and capacity of a new electrical panel, several critical factors come into play to ensure optimal functionality. First and foremost, the household's current and anticipated future electrical needs must be assessed. Considerations include the number and types of appliances, electronic devices, and lighting fixtures. Additionally, the home's square footage plays a role in determining the panel size, as larger residences typically require more circuits to distribute power adequately. The existing wiring infrastructure must be evaluated to ensure compatibility with the new panel, minimizing the risk of overload and potential hazards. Local building codes and safety standards also dictate the specifications of electrical panels, and compliance is non-negotiable. 

Professional electricians play a crucial role in accurately gauging these factors, offering expertise to recommend the appropriate panel size and capacity. By carefully considering these elements, homeowners can invest in an electrical panel that meets current needs and accommodates future technological advancements and expansions in their electrical systems.
