Electrical Panel Installation
Electric panels, or circuit breaker panels, are the lifeblood of your home’s electrical system. The power from your utility’s power grid comes into the electrical panel, where it is sorted and distributed to the rest of your house. Eventually, it becomes necessary to consider a new electrical panel installation or upgrade, whether because your system has a lot of wear and tear or you need more power.
Electrical Panel Upgrade
If your breakers trip when you run two appliances simultaneously, then there may be too much of an electrical load on one circuit. Our electricians can investigate the problem and tell you straight away if there is a load problem.
Too much of a load is not necessarily a serious issue. It can be caused by newer appliances, like that new refrigerator with wireless capabilities, or your electrical panel is just out of date.
A-Lumination Electric has served for over 30 years in the Orlando, FL, area. A typical electrical panel only works 100% efficiently for 20 years, so we have upgraded many panels. Yours is next!
Electrical Panel Replacement
Sometimes, repairing or upgrading a current electrical panel isn’t enough, and it’s time to replace it. Our highly-trained electricians will inspect your entire electrical system to verify an electrical panel upgrade is required.
Signs Your Panel Needs Replaced
Well-maintained electrical panels can last 40 to 50 years, but as we place larger loads requiring more power in our homes, the electrical panels need to be upgraded to keep up. Here are a few signs your panel needs replaced:
- Frequent breaker tripping
- Flickering lights in your home
- Unexplained electrical problems in your home
- Damaged cables in the box
- Excessive moisture
- Improper wiring
None of these warrant a replacement on their own, but it’s important to have one of our technicians come out and inspect the situation. A combination of problems could warrant a quick replacement to avoid power surges or an electrical fire.
Electrical Panel Replacement Benefits
Wear and tear, rodents, and panel location can all be problems for your electrical system. When A-Lumination Electric sends one of our professionals to your home, we consider all possible scenarios before replacing your current electrical panel. We want you to have the ability to install a new HVAC system or other power-hungry devices without worrying about the load to your electrical system.
Some of the benefits of replacing your electrical panel include:
A new panel can handle more work and therefore reduces the risk of short circuits and overloads.
Technology has come far. Everyone has a computer in their pocket, multiple smart devices in their home… the list goes on. Your new panel will be able to handle all that and more!
A new electrical panel installation means fewer breaker trips and repairs. That saves you money and limits your calls to the electrician. It also means your system will last longer.
Lower Utility Bills
We don’t have to explain why this is a benefit. A more efficient electrical system equals less overall wasted electricity. That’s good for your wallet and the environment!
Increased Property Value
As we said before, most people have a bunch of technology in their houses. New homebuyers will want to see that their potential home can handle all the gadgets and gizmos they’ll unpack.
Peace of Mind
You’ll enjoy the comfort of knowing your electrical system is working at peak performance.
Electrical panel replacements may require some rewiring by our technicians to optimize the circuits, which helps increase the longevity of your electrical system.
