Plugged In’s Master Electricians are happy to provide an inspection of every electrical panel they come across. However, what are some reasons to upgrade your electrical panel?
Today’s electronics draw more power than homebuilders even 25 years ago could even imagine. 40-60 inch televisions, computers in every bedroom, cellular devices, 1500 watt microwave/convection ovens, induction cooktops, even our refrigerators are computerized now. Each of these devices cost you money and keeping them in working order most definately will make the difference between a good or bad day.
An outdated panel can lead to shorted circuts that at best are a nuisance. Upgrading your panel can stop the shorting circuts, can keep your family safe from worn wires overheating in your walls starting fires, can save electronics from suffering from power surges when circuts are turned back on. Upgrading your panel can even increase the value of your home. Each of these reasons prooves to be a smart financial move.
