Is Your Kent Home Electrical Panel Out-of-Date?

We are frequently asked, “Should I upgrade my electrical panel?”

 

Certainly a fuse-based electrical system is not equipped to carry the increased usage of our many additional technological electronics and devices that result in overloaded panels. And even a circuit breaker panel does not have an unlimited life expectancy!

 

An old and even a not-so-old home needs an electrical panel upgrade to provide for the additional amperage used to supply increased electrical usage for comfort, entertainment, automated devices and other electricity-powered equipment.

 

These are signs that your panel may require updating:

  • Frequently blown fuses
  • Circuit breaker keeps tripping or circuit breaker won’t reset
  • Flickering lights
  • Damaged appliances

We highly recommend that property owners in Kent consider replacing a fuse-style panel with a circuit breaker panel installation as a necessity to ensure an adequate and risk-free power supply. Call us today!

 

What are the Benefits of a Circuit Breaker Panel?

Older homes are generally built to handle 100 or fewer amps compared with newer homes that are equipped to handle 200 amps.

 

Because the electric panel is responsible for the amount of power moving into the circuits and being dispersed into the home, it is important to consider an electrical panel upgrade to handle the additional power of modern electronic households in Kent that may be twice the daily amount used less than ten years ago.

 

And even if you have an older circuit breaker panel, it may be experiencing wear from use, and may require a replacement to keep up with increased electrical demands.

 

These are a few benefits of an electrical panel upgrade for your home in Kent:

  • Quick reset to restore electricity
  • Protection of wiring from overheating and potential fire
  • Lower insurance premiums
  • Prevention of premature appliance burn-out

Hiring our experts to install a panel upgrade is an investment that will pay you many times over. Call us today for an upgrade!
