A panel upgrade is not something that the average homeowner has probably given much thought to. Yet, for the safety of yourself and your loved ones, you most certainly should be. This is especially true if you are a New Haven homeowner with an older house, and it doesn’t even have to be that much older.
Let’s face the fact that the need for electrical supply in the home is greater, now more than ever. So many appliances, electronics and even just gadgets that require charging. You owe it to yourself to make sure that the supply can keep up with the demand, as well as keep your household and family members safe.
Watching for Red Flags
The truth of the matter is that a home doesn’t even have to be that old to need a New Haven panel upgrade or replacement. Homes built as recently as the 80s are often in need of this type of service. So what are some of the signs that point to the need for a new system?
Do you notice that there seems to be a lot of tripping breakers or blown fuses? This is not just an inconvenience, it is a major red flag. Of course this will happen from time to time. When it becomes more regular it is an alarm sounding to let you know that your system is over taxed.
Do you find yourself disconnecting power to one appliance in order to be able to use another? Updating the electrical panel will help put an end to this. Keep in mind, it is about safety even more than it is about convenience.
If your system is older and you intend to add a major appliance, you should at least have the panel inspected, first. Make sure that your electrical system is in any condition to handle this drain and address upgrade needs prior to bringing the new fixture in.
