Signs Your Breaker Box Needs an Upgrade
1. You are Still Using Fuses instead of Circuit Breakers
Both fuses and circuit breakers are used to prevent overloads in your home’s electrical system, however fuses are an outdated way to manage the flow of electrical currents and weren’t designed to manage the load requirements of newer homes and appliances. Plus, once a fuse blows, it has to be replaced leaving you without power for any part of your home. Also remember that some insurance companies will not cover homes that use fuses because of the potential fire risks.
Circuit breakers on the other hand simply have to be reset if there is a break in the electrical current. They are designed to be safer and they work more efficiently in protecting your home from electrical fires.Seeking the advice of a qualified Dallas electrician like Baker Brothers can give you peace of mind about your electrical panel.
2. Too Many Power Strips & Extension Cords
If you have a lot of power strips and extension cords in your home or office, you are at a higher risk for overloading your electrical system and even for fire. Upgrading your circuit breaker panel helps you to ensure that each circuit and plug is getting the required amount of power to keep your devices and home safe. (Also ask about our GFCI Installation or installing additional outlets).
3. New Appliance Installation
When installing larger appliances such as Refrigerators, Dryers & Washing machines or HVAC Systems, you should ensure that your electrical panel can manage the energy consumption needed by your new equipment. At Baker Brothers, our licensed electricians will help ensure that your electrical panel is up to the task.
4. Faulty Wiring
Faulty wiring is one of the main causes of residential fires in the U.S., so if you notice any of these issues, then it’s time to upgrade:
- Flickering lights
- Slight shock when you touch an appliance
- Sparking when you plug in an appliance or device
- Discolored, or burnt-looking, power outlets
