Why do I need to upgrade my Electric Panel?


As a rule of thumb, electric panels need replacing every 25-40 years, so if your home is that age, there’s a likelihood that you will need to upgrade. However, there are other key signs to look out for that will tell you when your existing system is becoming outdated and needs a replacement.


Here are a few other indicators that you should upgrade your panel immediately:

  • Faulty wiring
  • You get shocked when turning on or
  • off lights
  • You smell burning
  • Your electrical panel is warm
  • You see scorch marks around sockets


At a minimum, if you’re experiencing any of the problems above, you should call a professional to perform an inspection as soon as possible.
