Why Your Home Needs an Electrical Panel Upgrade

April 04, 2019

Living in an older home may mean you need to update your outdated electrical panel. Outdated electrical panels can lead to lower efficiency, increased risk of power shortages, and potentially harmful safety concerns due to poor electrical power management. Making the decision to call a licensed electrician for electrical panel upgrades will establish proper electrical power management of your home – meaning your home will have the appropriate capacity to handle daily electrical output.


Today we’ll discuss why you should opt for an electrical panel upgrade for your home:


Maintain Safety Standards in Your Home


The number one reason why you should make the decision to upgrade your home’s electrical panel is to establish safety in your home. The problem with old electrical panels is that they are likely incompatible with your home’s daily electrical needs. This will detriment your system’s overall functionality leading to decreased efficiency, increased risk of power shortages, and increased risk of your electrical panel sparking – which could lead to an electrical fire.


Don’t Worry About Operational Issues


Having an older electrical panel often means that your power system is unable to keep up with your home’s daily power needs. From blow-drying your hair, to your refrigerator, to using your computer – almost every appliance you rely on, on a day-to-day basis will require electricity to operate. Inefficient power systems due to old-school electrical panels can be unreliable in their inability to handle the daily power needs you are typically accustomed to. Upgrading your panel will make for a more reliable electrical system that will have the capacity to handle your everyday electrical needs.


Increase Your Home’s Resale Value


An added benefit to upgrading your home’s electrical panel is that it will increase the resale value of your home. Prospective home buyers are often looking for homes that are move-in ready – meaning they’re not looking to spend more money on additional repairs and renovations like upgrading old electrical panels. Upgrading your home’s electrical panel is perceived as an added benefit if you ever decide to sell your home.
