FAQs

What to consider when upgrading your home’s electrical panel?

When upgrading your home’s electrical panel, it’s essential to consider how long you have had your current one installed. Generally speaking, your electrical panel should last anywhere from 30 to 50 years before it will need to be replaced. However, if your panel is around 15 to 20 years old, you may wish to consider installing a new one. This is because older electrical panels are not built to safely power as many home appliances and electronics as they were when they were first installed. Therefore, it may be worth considering whether your current electrical use has increased significantly in the last couple of years.

Furthermore, older electrical panels over the years can become dangerous and fail to trip you’re your circuits are using too much power. This can ultimately put your home at risk of an electrical fire. It can also put your family at risk of suffering an electric shock that could cause serious bodily harm or death. Therefore, if you’re considering a new electrical panel upgrade for your home in Hamilton, the team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning is prepared to help you.

Why should you replace your home’s electrical panel?

An electrical panel, also known as a breaker panel, is an electrical box located within your home. This panel is a safety feature that “trips” or shuts off when the circuits in your home are using too much energy at once. As a result, it prevents damage to your electrical devices, home appliances, and your home as well. However, should the breaker not shut off the power, an overloaded circuit can start an electrical fire or cause an electric shock to you or a member of your family that can result in severe bodily harm or death. This is why it is imperative that homeowners upgrade their home’s electrical panel.

Generally speaking, your home’s electrical panel should last you anywhere between 30 to 50 years before it needs to be replaced. However, sometimes it can be difficult to tell if your electrical panel is relatively newer or older, especially if you live in an older home

Therefore, here is a list of signs that you can look out for around your house that will help you determine whether your home is due for a replacement electrical panel:

  • Your circuit breaker keeps tripping.
  • You live in an older home and have yet to replace your electrical panel yet.
  • The lights throughout your home flicker frequently.
  • Your electrical panel smells burnt, or there is a burnt smell throughout your home.
  • There is charring around your circuit breaker.
  • You notice the wiring around your electrical panel or around your home is melted.
  • Your electrical panel is covered in rust.
  • You are considering installing new appliances in your home.
  • Your electrical panel is too small for your home’s current electrical needs, so you find yourself using more extension cords than normal.

We are available 24/7/365 days a year and are able to provide homeowners with electrical panel upgrades for their homes during after-hours, in case of emergencies, on weekends, and on holidays without any extra charges!
