Electrical Panel Upgrade Services in Los Angeles

The electrical panel is the control center for your home’s or business’s electrical system. It is the link between the utility grid and the wires and circuits inside the building. From here, electrical power is distributed to every circuit, room, device, appliance, and light. Before the 1960s, fuse panels were used, but these don’t support modern high-tech appliances. Breaker panels are safer and more convenient; if a circuit breaker trips, it can be reset instead of replaced.

However, an outdated panel limits capacity and the number and types of devices you can use. It reduces energy efficiency and is a potential safety hazard. Fortunately, the licensed professionals at Express Electrical Services specialize in electrical panel replacement. They can determine if your existing panel meets your needs and evaluate your home to ensure electrical panel installation resolves all issues.

Signs You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade

If your electrical panel is outdated, old, or malfunctioning, it’s time to schedule an upgrade. Otherwise, there’s a high risk of power surges and outages. Appliances may be damaged and have to be replaced. If the panel is overloaded, corroded, or overheated, it can start an electrical fire. Therefore, call an electrician for an electrical panel upgrade if:

  • Breakers frequently trip
  • Lights flicker or dim
  • The breaker box buzzes, pops, or crackles
  • The panel feels warm or hot
  • The panel has a burning smell
  • A breaker is burnt or scorched
  • You need more outlets
  • You’re adding appliances
  • You’re remodeling your home

The Electrical Panel Upgrade Process

At Express Electrical Services, every electrical panel installation starts with a consultation. You’ll have a chance to explain any issues you’re having, and our team will fully evaluate your home or business to determine the type of panel required. We handle the entire process from planning to permit acquisition, to electrical panel replacement

Our technicians will also perform a full inspection to assess your electrical system, determine if other repairs or upgrades are needed, and ensure your new panel is installed properly. A new 200-amp panel will support the power demands of a new air conditioner, refrigerator, hot tub, and other modern appliances.

Our skilled electricians work quickly and safely to update your electrical panel. But you can help simplify the process by clearing the room or area around the panel. Budgeting for the project and planning for downtime also help. You won’t be able to use any electrical devices while our technicians are working (and maybe not until then if your current panel is unsafe to use).

Benefits of Upgrading to a New Electrical Panel

An electrical panel upgrade can benefit you in many ways. Our electricians will install a panel sized according to the number of circuits, appliances, and outlets in your home. Therefore, you can see all the advantages of electrical panel replacement, including:

  • Increased Safety: An updated panel will prevent overloaded circuits and potential shocks and fires, making the environment safer for your family and building occupants.
  • Increased Capacity: Air conditioners, televisions, computers, phone chargers, and other electrical devices will have enough power, even during peak usage.
  • Energy Efficiency: Newer electrical panels conserve power and comply with the latest electrical codes. Our team can install new wiring and surge protection as needed.
  • Support for Smart Home Technology: Increased capacity means you can install an electric vehicle charger or smart home security, lighting, climate control, and other systems.

What Does an Electrical Panel Upgrade Include?

How Long Does Electrical Panel Replacement Take?

It takes about four to eight hours. The time depends on any rewiring or other labor needed and how many technicians work on your electrical panel

How Long Can an Electrical Panel Last?
