A main panel upgrade can benefit you in the future

That can happen if you buy an electric vehicle, add on to your home, or get a pool or spa. If you have an older home, its panel may not be adequate to fulfill your future energy needs.

Home Electrical Repair

A Main Panel Upgrade (MPU) is a service where your existing electrical breaker box is upgraded to a new one with new electrical circuit breakers. An MPU may be needed if the breakers in your electrical breaker box aren’t able to handle the additional electrical load provided by a solar power system. Another reason you may need an MPU is if your home’s electrical breakers are outdated. There are some older breaker boxes that are actually dangerous and they should be replaced to reduce the risk of an electrical fire in your home.

A panel upgrade can turn out to be costly indeed, but it’s definitely worth it. Panel upgrades are not only beneficial to the safety of your home, but they can actually increase the resale value of your property and attract more interest. Below, you’ll find the three most important reasons why the investment is worth it.

 

It keeps your home safe 

Unfortunately, electrical fires happen every year, resulting in far too many tragedies. Approximately 51,000 electrical fires take place each year and they lead to an average of 500 deaths per year. 

Outdated or overwhelmed electrical panels are a main cause of electrical fires. Having such a panel represents a danger to your family and home. Upgrading your panel is an investment worth making because it will keep your family safe and protect you from fires caused by a faulty electric system.

 

It increases your home’s value 

To secure and preferably increase your home’s value on the real estate market, you need to constantly make improvements. Considering that an electrical panel has a lifespan of 20-30 years and the upgrade process itself involves a significant investment, the value of your property will also be improved. 

If you decide to put your home up for sale, an upgraded electrical panel that has a high amperage will certainly serve as a key selling point, since more and more people have power hungry appliances and devices. 

 

It protects your electrical system

Even if your panel isn’t faulty or at risk to cause electrical fires, it can still cause damage by ruining your electronics or newer appliances. If the panel can’t handle the new power needs and can’t keep up with the energy consumption, your breakers will constantly trip and your devices and appliances will be at risk.

It’s both a nuisance and an added expense if you have price appliances and electronic devices, such as laptops, smart TVs or game consoles. By investing in a new electrical panel, you can use as many devices as you need , without causing your breakers to trip.

No matter urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else aren’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, always rely on a professional for any electrical services.
