Electrical Panel, Circuit Breaker, and Meter Repair in Douglas, AZ
Ensuring that your home is safe is a priority. Unfortunately, many Douglas homes still have outdated electrical panels or are in need of replacement for their circuit breakers and electric meters. Failing to replace underperforming equipment could lead to your appliances lacking the power they need to properly work and could even cause an overload on the system.
Protect your home and family now by upgrading your electrical panel and ensure that your home is able to support the electric needs of modern appliances.
Electrical Panel Upgrade
Ensuring that your home’s electrical system is able to support the ever-evolving variety of electrical devices is crucial. Most modern appliances could easily overload an outdated electrical panel, which could cause issues for your home.
Identified by their gray or painted metal box, electric panels are usually mounted in rooms such as the garage, closet, laundry room, and even outside of your home.
Old electrical panels can cause a variety of problems such as flickering lights, fuses that blow frequently, and tripped breakers. In some situations they can also lead to shocks, overheating, and fire which could put your family and home in danger.
It’s recommended that electric panels be upgraded when installing any large appliance such as HVAC units, stoves, washers, dryers, and more. Upgrades are also suggested when renovating your home to fully support the more modern appliances as well as the addition of any new outlets in your home.
Outdated electrical panels are easy to pinpoint since they commonly display the following:
- Crackling sounds
- Corrosion on the panel
- Overheating of conductors
- Appliances running at weaker power
- Lack of GFCIs in your home
- Outdated electrical systems
- Upgrading your electric panel ensures that all of your new appliances are supported and that your family and home are safe from any dangers that might occur from overloading your system.
Electric Panel Restoration
Electric panels are used to regulate the flow of electricity for your home while also being the main location of all electrical circuits. Electricity flows in through your electrical meter before reaching the circuit breaker panel where it is then routed for distribution among the various rooms of your home.
Using an outdated panel could lead to a risk in power surges and electric shocks
Restoring your electric panel allows for more power to be used by current appliances as well as the ability to handle new, modern appliances.
Circuit Breaker Box Replacement
Working with the breaker box is stressful for many homeowners, as it can affect the electricity throughout your entire home.
The breaker box is also commonly referred to as the service panel. This acts as the main power switch for your home or business. This is also the place you might look when your home blows a fuse. Wiring a breaker box yourself can be dangerous, so it’s recommended that you hire a licensed electrician if the panel needs attention.
The panel pulls in a great deal of electricity that could be very harmful if mishandled by someone who isn’t familiar with their box or doesn’t know where the main switch is located.
Electric Meter Replacement
Electric meters work by measuring the amount of electricity that your home or business uses through kilowatts per hour, which the electric companies then use as a measurement of billing.
Trying to install your own electric meter is usually time-consuming, expensive, and dangerous to do if performed by someone who is not a qualified electrician.
