An electrical panel upgrade can be necessary for a number of reasons. Many people still live in older houses with electrical components that are woefully outdated. These components include such iconic symbols as fuse boxes. In addition, in many cases, the wires that attach to these fuse boxes no longer meet current electrical code in any jurisdiction.
These are particularly hazardous conditions due to the large electrical demands that are now placed on home electrical systems. Fuse boxes and smaller gauge wire were not made to handle the huge electrical load found in the typical American family home.
Running a refrigerator, a washer and dryer, several television sets, a few computers, and a couple of gaming systems combined pull a great deal of electricity. If these wires and fuse were not manufactured for such a massive electrical load, overheating of both the fuses, and eventually the wires, can result. If the overheating continues, there is a high likelihood that a fire will be the result.
Replacing the fuse box with a modern and safe circuit breaker panel will do much to raise the safety level in an older house. In many cases, this will also necessitate a rewiring of the house in order for the wiring to work with the new and updated electrical components.
Even if a house contains a modern electrical component, there could electrical problems that point to replacing the electrical service panel. Flickering lights, for example, can indicate electrical problems that can only be fixed with replacing the older electrical parts with newer ones. An electrician will do extensive troubleshooting when called out to a house or business in order to pinpoint exactly what is causing the problem and what needs to be done to correct it.
Flickering lights are not the only issue that could warrant a troubleshooting session and subsequent replacement of the electrical service panel. The presence of smoke in the vicinity of the old electrical components could point to this as the problem as well. Another sign the electrician will want to know about is any crackling or popping sounds that are coming from that particular area. This, too, will probably result in having the electrical component replaced.
