When do I need an electrical panel replacement?

Knowing when you need an electrical panel replacement is crucial for maintaining the safety and functionality of your electrical system. Here are some signs that indicate it may be time to consider a panel replacement:

Frequent Circuit Breaker Tripping: If your circuit breakers trip frequently, it could be a sign that your electrical panel is overloaded or experiencing issues. Upgrading to a larger panel with more circuits can help alleviate this problem.

Outdated Panel: If your electrical panel is several decades old and uses outdated technology, it may not be able to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and electronics. Replacing it with a newer, more efficient panel can improve safety and reliability.

Flickering Lights: Flickering or dimming lights throughout your business, could indicate inadequate power supply from the electrical panel. Upgrading to a higher-capacity panel can resolve this issue.

Insurance Requirements: Some insurance companies may refuse coverage or charge higher premiums for properties with outdated or unsafe electrical panels. Upgrading to a modern, code-compliant panel may be necessary to maintain insurance coverage and ensure the safety of your property.
