What Is an Electrical Panel Upgrade?

To answer that question, we first have to know exactly what an electrical panel is, and why it exists. When power is sent to your home via your electricity provider, it flows directly into your electrical panel. The panel distributes electricity according to your needs, ensuring optimal energy flow and safety.

So what is an upgrade, and why might you need one? An upgrade is literally as it describes. An upgrade to your existing electrical panel provides a number of potential benefits, including:

  • Safety. The primary goal and concern of installing a panel upgrade is to ensure your panel is up to date with current technology, and can safely handle the demands placed on it by daily operation. An outdated panel presents a fire hazard, as well as an increased risk of repairs or electrical disruptions.
  • Useability. An outdated or under-equipped panel will prevent you from operating many appliances and electronics. New age appliances place a moderately high demand on your panel, and if it’s not up to snuff, you could experience flickering, frequent breaker flips and power outages.
  • Staying in code. A particular concern for older homes or structures, ensuring your panel gets an upgrade regularly could be a legal matter as well. Panels have to maintain a certain level of efficiency and capability to stay within code standard.
