1. What All Went Into This Electrical Panel Project?


Obviously, the initial step that anybody should do when working on an electrical system is to turn the main source of connected power off, which is exactly what we did.

This is the most obvious and simplistic safety operation that EVERY true electrician should do. Yet, it’s stagger to realize just how many accidents happen every year just from people forgetting this fundamental law of electrical safety. But, moving on.

Once the power was switched off and safely away from our workspace, we removed the old split box panels in order to get to the main inner workings of the panel boxes.

After this was accomplished, we then removed the old panel boxes and the main feeder cables. This then completely exposed the inner wires for a time.

We always take note of what specific connections are made beforehand so there’s never any “best guessing” going on whatsoever.

All of the cable and wiring was then meticulous and efficiently reinstalled, checked for accuracy, then re-checked again just for good measure.

Finally, after the new electrical panels was successfully installed, we then tightened up the outside power and turned everything back on. Mission Accomplished.

2. Are Your Panels Overdue For A Replacement?


There are a few common signs and symptoms that it just might be time to get a replacement for your electrical panel(s).

To start with, these types of replacements are extremely far and few between. The average electrical panel box lasts between 25-40 Years, so right there is a big tip for you: How old is your house?

Next, is your electrical panel warm or hot to the touch? If it is, it might be time for a new one.

Heavy electrical use causes heat to inevitable built in any unit, but if an electrical panel box is especially crowded or clumped together, then this could lead to excessive heat transfer to the surrounding wires and connections which could potentially compromise the unit.

Furthermore, if you’re noticing that your appliances aren’t running at full capacity, this could be a symptom of a sluggish, overfilled electrical panel also. Due to the high amounts of energy which are possibly being demanded from it, this could occasionally lead to power surges that may make your lights flicker or trip a few of your breakers.

These are just a few of the common signs that it may be time for you to get an electrical panel replacement.

If you’d like to find out more information from us, please, feel free to give us a call and we could set up an appointment to help you fully access your electrical panel’s situation and potential future needs.

3. How Exactly Does Amperage Tie In?


Older homes tend to have panels that fill up around the 60 to 100 amps range or so.

While 100-150 amps tend to be suitable enough for most homes, 200-amps Electrical Panels, which are fairly common replacement choices, tend to be more than enough for our modern day, technology-heavy lifestyles.

4. What Exactly Is An Amp?


An Amp, short for ampere, is a basic type of measurements used for electrical currents. Here’s a quick reference to some different household items and their average usage in Amps.

Laptop = <0.5 Amps

Desktop Computer = 3.0 Amps

Microwave = 4.5 Amps

Toaster = 9.0 Amps

Hair Dryer = 10.0 Amps

Oil Filled Radioator = 13.0 Amps
