Electrical Panel Upgrades in Los Angeles
Electricians Serving Southern California
Do you know how old fuses are? To give you a good idea – the original patent for the first fuse panel was taken out by Thomas Edison in 1885. Like every other piece of technology, the fuse panel has been upgraded with modern advances over time. However, they haven’t be used in new construction since the early 1960s. At that time, there weren’t very many high-tech appliances in use. Because in this day and age every home is equipped with advanced technology, an old panel is just not going to cut it.
Signs Your Fuse Panel Is In Poor Condition
Whether it’s in bad condition or not, as society grows, technology grows and eventually your home will be too powerful for the panel to run the electricity. But, it’s especially important for you to know the warning signs because a faulty service panel is not something to mess with.
If you notice flickering lights or an Arcing, or electric sizzling sound coming from inside the unit, it’s not safe to ignore them. Arcing is a surge in electricity that can send incorrect voltages around your house. This means that appliances you have around your home could not function if they get too little electricity, or overload and become a fire hazard if they get too much. Don’t take the risk.
When you upgrade to a 200 AMP breaker panel, though, you can ensure that your electrical panel box is not only able to handle the power demands of your home but is also much safer. This is especially important if you are installing a new appliance that has a high power demand such as a new refrigerator, air conditioner, or hot tub.
Benefits Of A New Circuit Breaker Box
Besides having a circuit breaker that can handle multiple electronic devices at once without overloading, upgrading your service panel has other advantages, as well.
- Insurance incentives: Because they are so outdated, insurance companies look at a home with a fuse panel and see an electrical fire just waiting to happen.
- Higher resale value: Homes that have a circuit breaker are more appealing to potential buyers
- Safety: With an old service panel, you run the risk of a fire in your home
