Is It Time to Upgrade Your Electrical Panel?
Keeping your home safe for your family is paramount. Yet, determining the right time to upgrade your electrical panel can be challenging, especially if you haven’t recently undergone repairs.
Consider an upgrade if:
- Your panel is over 25 years old
- Lights flicker when using appliances
- The panel feels warm to the touch
- You rely on multiple extension cords
While your electrical system’s complexities can be bewildering, our team excels at diagnosing issues. If your home is 25 years old or older, your panel likely doesn’t meet modern safety standards. Additionally, older homes may lack the outlets required for today’s technology needs. If extension cords are your solution, your circuits could be overwhelmed.
This overload manifests as dimming lights when appliances run—your aging circuits struggle to accommodate both the appliances and lighting. If your panel is warm or emits a burning smell, it could indicate damaged wiring, posing a fire hazard.

When to Opt for an Electrical Subpanel:
An electrical subpanel is a downsized version of your primary service panel, perfect for spaces requiring substantial power or situated away from the main house. This includes garages, workshops, or sheds where power tools or energy-intensive EV chargers are used. It’s also a smart choice for accessory dwelling units (ADUs) or rental cottages.
Advantages of Subpanels:
Subpanels offer multiple benefits. Resetting a tripped circuit breaker in your workshop is easier, preventing the need to traipse dirt inside your home. In new constructions, subpanels save money by reducing wire usage and time for spaces like ADUs. Additionally, minimizing wire runs boosts energy efficiency—longer distances result in voltage drops, leading to higher costs and power losses.
Your home’s functionality hinges on efficient electrical subpanels and panels. Say goodbye to disruptions caused by outdated wiring or extended wire runs draining your energy and finances.
