But what is an electrical panel? Also known as a breaker panel, panelboard, or distribution board, an electrical panel is the main hub of your home’s electricity supply system. Besides dividing the electrical power field into subsidiary circuits, the electrical panel also consists of circuit breakers designed to stop the flow of electricity when a fault like a short circuit or an overload occurs. Is your home’s current electrical panel up to powering all the major appliances in your home? What if you have a central air conditioner or electric heater? The following are signs you might have a problem with your current electrical panel:
- Flickering or dimming lights
- Breakers trip frequently
- Buzzing and/or crackling noises coming from the panel
- You notice excessive heat or a burning smell coming from the electrical panel
- Fuses blow regularly
- If you plan to add major appliances like a spa or hot tub
- If you plan to renovate or add an addition to your home
- You have an older, obsolete electrical panel like an FPE Panel, Zinsco Electrical Panel, or Pushmatic Electrical Panel
- Your house has a Fuse Box
If you notice any of these issues or need your existing panel inspected, our expert electricians at Day Star Electric can inspect your current electrical panel to determine if it’s the correct panel for your home, advise you on any repairs it may need, and if the panel needs to be replaced or upgraded. We can also perform any repairs or install a replacement or upgraded electrical panel.
