The electrical panel in your Virginia home is vital to your overall home comfort. It’s the hub from which power makes its way to every room – so it should be up to date! When your electrical panel is current, you can rest assured you’re safely powering the comfort systems you rely on year after year.
If you’re still unsure that you need to upgrade your panel, consider these factors!
- Older homes may still utilize obsolete electrical panels that might not be able to support the amount of power needed for modern electrical appliances. If you’re hoping to introduce new appliances to an older home, a bigger panel will allow you to do so without a fuss!
- Older breaker panels and fuse boxes can become outdated just as any other piece of equipment. As they degrade, the chances of nuisance trips or faults can occur more frequently causing potential operating concerns for today’s electronic equipment.
- Excessive use of extension cords and power strips indicate a lack of usable receptacles. With an upgraded panel, receptacles can be added to reduce the use of extension cords and power strips and make the home safer.
