Most homes out there were built pre-1990’s and that’s actually a good thing. There is a lot to be said about owning an older home but of course having that older home means there is more maintenance. Often what is overlooked in a home is the electrical panel box.
Today’s gadgets and modern appliances can very easily overload an electrical system in many of today’s older homes. This is turn can cause some severe issues that could easily be prevented with a new electrical panel box.
What is a Panel Box?
An electrical panel box brings electricity to all your appliances and electrical gadgets. Power from your utility company enters your home via the panel box and from there it branches out distributing power throughout the house. There is not a doubt that a properly functioning electrical panel box is mission critical for your safety and to the safety of your home.
Panel Box Location
Electrical panel boxes are easily identified as a painted or gray metal box. Typically they are mounted on the wall of your home in an easily accessible area such as a utility room, laundry room, garage, or in the basement.
Do I Need a New Panel Box?
There are some tell-tale signs that you are in need of a new panel box. Some things to look for:
- Overheating electrical conductors.
- Appliances than run less than full power.
- Crackling sounds from the panel box.
- Your home does not have ground fault circuit interrupters.
- Your home still runs on 60 amp service.
- Your home has a fuse box panel.
- You have done some renovations which include new appliances.
- You have added a new room to the house.
- Flickering lights.
- Breakers than always trip.
- Fuses that blow too often.
- You have to turn off one appliance in order to use another.
- Defective circuit breakers that do not trip – there are shocks and overheating as a result.
Today’s panels are well-designed and considered safe, however homes with panels installed as recently as the 1980s may contain components that have deteriorated, making them unsafe.
