Your electric panel regulates all the electricity in your home. It’s responsible for managing your circuits and protecting them from being overloaded. However, as your home gets older, your electric panel could have a hard time keeping up with your family’s increased electric demands. This can lead to all sorts of problems, including frequent tripping, flickering, and even malfunctioning. Some of these problems can get worse over time and even cause a hazard, putting you and your family at risk. For example, a breaker that fails to trip can cause shock or lead to a fire or melted wires. AMS Electric provides electric panel repair, installation, and upgrade services to keep your running efficiently and safely.
If you are having issues with your electric panel, fuse box, or circuit breaker, contact AMS Electric. We can help you isolate the problem and determine the extent of the repairs or upgrades that you need to make. Rest assured, we believe in honest service and quality workmanship. We won’t suggest an electric panel replacement if your current panel works just fine and is more than enough to handle your home’s electricity needs. Sometimes a simple repair is all you need to get your home’s electricity system back up and running as it should. However, if you do need an upgrade, we’ll tell you your options and will carry out the project in a timely manner.
Age is one of the biggest factors when it comes to breaker problems. Electric panels can last anywhere between 25-40 years, depending on the specific type of breaker you have, its efficiency, and the quality of its installation. Particularly old panels must also be upgraded to meet federal NEC standards.
Signs that it could be time for a repair or upgrade include:
- Flickering lights
- Problems running two appliances at once
- Frequent breaker trips
- Abnormal heat emitting from the breaker box (the area around your electric panel should not be warm)
- Loud buzzing
If you remodel or add to your home, it’s important to ask an electrician if you need a sub-panel. Sub-panels can be incorporated into your home to reduce the distance between a room or appliance and the main panel. These installations could reduce voltage drop, since the distance the current has to travel is significantly reduced. There are also built-in safety measures that will help prevent overloading your main panel.
