Your electrical panel, sometimes called a “breaker box,” is a critical component of your home. Your electrical panel keeps your HVAC running, your lights on, and your water hot. Anything in your home that runs on electricity will run through that electrical panel. Because your home electricity is vital to maintaining your comfort and the everyday function of your home, you will want to ensure that your electrical panel is in the best condition possible at all times. This means you may have to arrange for an electrical panel upgrade if you have been encountering problems. Your electrician at Professional Electric Inc. can help you determine when it’s time for an upgrade so that you can enjoy the following practical benefits.
When you upgrade your electrical panel, you significantly reduce the risk of fire and electrical shock in your home. This is the primary benefit of a panel upgrade because faulty electrical systems can cause devastating damage to your home.
An electrical panel upgrade allows you to ensure your home can meet its power needs for years to come. This means you are equipped for things like:
- Adding a hot tub
- Remodeling your kitchen or bath
- Expanding the appliances in your home
A new electrical panel in your home means your power needs can be handled, and your property value and home’s resale value will increase. When considering electrical upgrades, it’s important to consider your future needs as well as any fixes you need in the present.
An Energy-Efficient Home
Older electrical panels require more energy to get the job done compared to a new, fully-updated panel. Less energy usage means lower utility expenses and more money in your pocket over time.
Decreased Maintenance Costs
An electrical panel upgrade means that your brand new system will last for many years without you needing to pay for repairs or a new replacement. With the reduced risk of electrical problems and fires, you also reduce the chance of having to repair appliances or damage to your home.
Potentially Lower Insurance Premiums
A home equipped with an electrical panel and system that is up-to-date and up-to-code can potentially impact the amount you pay in homeowner’s insurance premiums. The increased safety of your home after an electrical panel upgrade reduces the potential for accidents and damage in your home.
If you suspect it’s time for an electrical panel upgrade, schedule an inspection with the experienced electricians at Professional Electric Inc. We can advise you on the best decisions for your home’s electrical system.
