The panel of your electrical system is sort of like the heart of your house. It is the main hub of where the electrical wires running through your house connect. The electrical panel is what holds the circuit breakers. Keeping your electrical panel up to date by a professional electrician will protect your house from electrical malfunctions and save you from having to repair damage that could have been prevented. Modern breaker boxes are used to protect your house’s electrical system from overloading. Hopefully you’ve never experienced a breaker “pop” because this means the electrical load was too great for a particular circuit.
The team at Power Pros offers efficient and effective panel upgrades to houses that may have more of an electrical load that they were build for. In addition, if you are considering remodeling or adding on to your house, you may consider an upgrade, too because appliances of today, while more energy efficient, have different electrical pulls than those in the past.
There are several different types of breaker panels to consider when upgrading your system. Main breaker panels feature a built-in main breaker that easily shuts off the power to your whole house. This type of panel also limits how much electricity is allowed to feed into your electrical system from the power poles outside. The most common type of panel seen in houses s the main lug panel. The main lug panel does not have the main power shut off like the main breaker panel. Instead, the main power cut off, which is important in the event of an emergency like a fire, is in another location like the meter. Sub panels are used to house breakers that have been added on whether you just need the extra help with the power load in your house or if you have recently had a room added to your house.
Another good reason to upgrade your electrical panel is if you have had issues with power overloads, an overabundance of flipped breakers or if your power flickers and you’ve already considered rewiring your house.
