How old is the electrical panel in your home? If it hasn’t been upgraded in the past 25-40 years, you may be due for a replacement. Replacing an outdated electrical panel can improve your home safety and energy efficiency, making it a worthwhile investment.
Greencat is the company that California homeowners trust when they need home electrical services. When you partner with us for an electrical panel upgrade, we’ll listen to your concerns, inspect your home’s electrical system, and help you decide whether a panel replacement is the right choice for your needs and budget.
When Should You Replace Your Electrical Panel?
Age is usually the deciding factor when it comes to replacing an electrical panel, but there are other reasons why you may need an upgrade.
Older electrical panels aren’t designed to handle modern appliances and electronics. If you want to install a new high-efficiency HVAC system, solar panels, or a car charging station, you may need to upgrade to a more powerful system.
Similarly, if your home doesn’t have enough outlets and you’re always plugging in power strips and extension cords, it’s a good sign that your electrical panel isn’t strong enough to meet your electricity needs.
All-electric homes are the future here in California, and if you’re making the switch to an all-electric HVAC system, oven, or stove, you may need a stronger electrical panel than the one you currently have. Upgrading your electrical panel now will set your home up for an all-electric future and could help increase its resale value if you’re ever planning to sell.
A damaged electrical panel can be a major safety concern. If your system is visibly damaged, rusted, overheating, or smells like it’s burning, it’s very likely that you’ll need to replace it.
