Electrical Panel Repair and Installation
Electrical panels are the heart of your home’s electrical system. In the human body, hearts pump blood to the lungs and other important systems in the body through veins and arteries to keep people alive. Likewise, an electrical panel serves as distribution centers for electricity, pushing electricity through wires or circuits to different electrical systems in a home to keep it powered on.
As you add electrical appliances and circuits, you increase the demand on your power panel and the possibility of needing an electrical panel repair. Depending on when your home was built and how much electricity you use, your main electrical panel may need to be replaced or a sub-panel may need to be added to keep up with demand. In some cases, older electrical panels need to be changed for safety reasons.
This is because as a home ages, its electrical panel may stop protecting it against overcurrent or short circuits, among other problems. Electrical panels normally last around 25 years, but this depends on how electrical panel are treated. Exposing electrical panels to harsh environments or overloading will only cause them to stop working or need electrical panel repairs.
Other common hazards that may cause the need for an electrical panel repair include: damaged service cables, excess moisture, improper wiring, under powering, overcrowding and general aging. Any complications with electrical panels should be diagnosed and remedied by a certified electrician.
