Do I Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade?
Your Maine home’s age, prevalence of power issues, and any future renovation plans you may have all contribute to whether you need to rewire your circuit breaker box. Here are some aspects of your electrical panel for you to consider:
- Age of the Breaker Box: If your home’s circuit breaker box is more than 25 years old, it’s time for an inspection by a licensed electrician to ensure that the panel is up to modern standards and not at risk for any hazards.
- Insufficient Power: Renovations, new appliances, or additional family members can all increase the load on your electrical system. An updated circuit breaker can handle the load smoothly.
- Frequent Issues: Flickering lights, tripping breakers, or persistent burning smells are all serious signs that your current system might be struggling.
Even if you’re not sure about whether you need to upgrade, Heritage can help you decide. We’ll provide you with an honest assessment of your circuit breaker panel and help you determine the next steps to get your electrical system where it needs to be.
