What is your Electrical Panel doing for you?
Your residential electrical panel is loaded with a lot of responsibility. It keeps you, your family and your home safe from electrical fires as it provides power to your home.
The electricity that arrives to your home first passes through a meter and then flows to the electrical panel. From there, electricity flows through the wires in your home, fed through outlets and light switches.
The electrical panel has one of the most important jobs in your electrical system, when the interior wires get overloaded and/or are in danger of overheating and causing a fire, the panel will trip and shut off power.
When/why is a Service Upgrade needed?
An out of date home electrical system trying to handle modern electricity needs is troublesome for homeowners who constantly experience flickering lights, tripping breakers and failing outlets. Many homes in Sanpete County were built more than 40 years ago, which means that most of these homes have electrical systems that are not equipped to handle today’s electrical needs.
Your panel may currently be up to date and you could still be faced with a residential service upgrade if you are planning any additions, remodels or simply want to add more outlets. Even adding a major appliance such as power equipment in the garage, central heating and air, a fireplace or home spa will most likely require an electrical panel upgrade or sub-panel installation.
The biggest concern regarding out of date electrical systems is the fire hazard. According to ESFi, home electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year, nearly 500 deaths, more than 1,400 injuries and $1.3 billion in property damage.
