An up-to-date electrical panel is essential for keeping your home safe. The powerhouse of your electrical system, the panel protects your home from short circuits, overloads, and fires. If your electrical panel is outdated or inadequate for your home’s needs, you’re at risk for higher energy usage and home disasters. Read on to find out when it’s time for an electrical panel upgrade and how Kliemann Brothers can help. 

Signs You Need To Upgrade Your Electrical Panel

An aging or insufficient electrical panel gives off warning signs when it’s unable to meet your household needs. The top signs indicating it’s time for an upgrade include:

  • Rising energy bills: If your energy use hasn’t changed but your electrical bills are on the rise, your panel could be to blame. When a system starts to deteriorate or malfunction, it has to work harder to produce the same results, increasing energy usage.
  • Your panel is over 20 years old: If you haven’t upgraded your residential electrical panel in over two decades, it’s likely time to schedule an appointment. Older panels have a harder time keeping up with the needs of modern households and can be a hazard to your home.
  • Your panel contains fuses: If you have an older panel containing fuses rather than breakers, it’s best to do an electrical panel change-out. Fuses can’t keep up with modern technology and pose a fire threat to your home. 
  • The panel is damaged: A broken or damaged breaker panel can endanger your home. Broken safety features can result in electrocution, fires, or damage to your home’s electrical system.
  • You notice strange smells: If you notice burning or other strange smells coming from your electrical panel box, contact us as soon as possible. A burning smell indicates a risk of fire or severe damage. If you suspect a fire, contact emergency service immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the lifespan of an electrical panel?

Electrical panels have an average lifespan of between 25 and 40 years. The rate of use and maintenance performed on the panel affects how long it lasts. Smart panels have a typical lifespan of 25 to 30 years, after which an upgrade is recommended.

Can I upgrade my electrical panel without rewiring my house?

Upgrading your electrical panel doesn’t necessarily mean you need to rewire your house. In most cases, the upgrade can be completed without rewiring. However, depending on the panel's size and the condition of the wiring, some rooms — or the entire house — may need to be rewired.
