Electrical Panel Upgrades
Panel-Service Upgrade by Blue Sky Electrical in North Bay, ON
Electrical panels act as regulators for the electricity in your home. This means that if too much electricity is put on a circuit, the circuit breaker (located in the electrical panel) trips, which stops the electricity from overloading the wiring and causing a fire. The electrical panel is an essential system that keeps you, your loved ones, and your home safe.
As homes age and electrical gadgets increase, the electrical panels may have a tough time keeping up with the demand. Even if your appliances, systems, and gadgets are energy efficient, the quantity and usage can cause problems for electrical panels, especially in homes that are over 20 years old.
Signs of a Bad Electrical Panel
- Crackling sounds
- Panel feels warm on the inside
