Breaking Down the Background
Your electrical panel is the heart of your system. That’s because behind this box’s door lies the switches that control your home’s power. And this system is responsible for protecting your home’s wiring from damage by turning the power on or off. For example, when an electrical short or overcurrent occurs, your electrical panel will “trip” the system, shutting your power off immediately and preventing a disaster.
A proficient electrical panel is capable of both supplying your home with the amount of power you need and effectively shutting off your power when any signs of danger are detected. On the other hand, an ineffective panel shows evident signs that indicate it is in need of an upgrade. These signs include:
- Circuit breakers that trip frequently
- Dimming lights when other appliances are in use
- Excessive use of extension cords and power strips
- Installation of high-power consumption appliance
- Issues with faulty wiring
Keep in mind that in addition to these indications, there are some dangerous signs that indicate you need to upgrade your electrical panel right away, including:
- Aged panel (Older than 25 years)
- Poor condition
- Old panel that only contains a few circuits
- Breaker never trips
