You can think about the electric panel as the primary center of control within your residence. No matter how amazing your wiring networks and lighting fixtures are, they could not operate without a strong and durable electric panel directing the energy that you need. As technology has greatly advanced, requiring our devices to consume more power than ever, an older panel will not work as well. Rely on Super Power Electric to ensure that your panels are operating safely.

What Are the Signs That You Should Have Your Panel Upgraded?
Even though your panels are built to last a long time, these sturdy pieces of electrical equipment will still suffer from a lot of use over the years. Because we are constantly purchasing new and improved devices that require a lot more power, your panels are bombarded with providing extensive electricity to all your appliances. In order to prevent your panel from being overloaded, it is critical to have it upgraded from time to time.
It is time to consider upgrading your system if the following conditions apply to your home, including:
- Your panel is at least 15 years old
- You have recently renovated your home or have inserted an addition
- You are installing a major appliance into your home, such as a fridge, freezer, or generator
- There are signs of corroded, discolored, or charred outlets and switches
- The panel box has been making odd buzzing and crackling noises
- You have smelled unpleasant odors of burning, or rotten and sulfuric aromas
- You are planning on putting your house on the market
Understandably, many homeowners would not automatically opt for an upgrade if they don’t need to. However, just because your system is not displaying overt signs of malfunctioning does not mean that your panels are doing just fine. In some situations, your panel may be exhibiting more subtle indicators that something is wrong, only detectable by professional electricians.
Alternatively, while no emergency situation has occurred on your property yet, you may accidentally be out of accordance with the current National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements, which have changed quite a lot in recent years. To ensure that your property is fully aligned and that you do not incur any unexpected fines, reach out for a thorough inspection as quickly as possible.

Particularly if you have an older electrical panel installed by Federal Pacific or Zinsco, it is absolutely crucial to talk to our professionals as quickly as you can. These panels have been banned in newly constructed properties since they are so prone to causing dangerous fires and severe electrical shocks. Homeowners who have already been living in their residence for many years may not be aware of the risks associated with these types of panels. Our technicians at Super Power Electric can safely replace these hazards with new upgrades.
