Electrical Panel Replacement Services
In severe cases — such as when you have an ancient panel caked with rust — the only viable option for you may be outright electrical panel replacement. If you aren’t sure when to ask for repairs and when to replace your panel, look at the issues and try to ascertain their severity. If your circuit breakers only trip rarely, for example, repairs might be sufficient.
If they trip all the time, opt for a replacement. The same goes for the extent of the noise or the strength of the burning smell coming from your panel. As a final useful rule of thumb, you should probably replace any electrical panel that is more than about 25 or 30 years old.
Wingham Electrical Panel Repair Pros
Since a dysfunctional electrical panel can be such a catastrophe for your home, we’ll start with the electrical panel repair services that our team offers.
Here are a few signs that your electrical panel isn’t working properly and needs one of our electricians to set it right.
- Circuit breakers keep tripping
- Electrical bills exploding
- Lights keep dimming
- Strange noises resounding or smells wafting through the air
- Rusting panel equipment
The first of these signs is the most obvious one. Your circuit breakers shouldn’t be tripping constantly, and you shouldn’t have to repeatedly reset them. Many things can cause this problem, including panel age and miscommunications with new appliances. An electrician can determine the nature of the issue and resolve it.
If your electrical bills have inexplicably ballooned, your electrical panel could be at fault. Your panel’s wires might be old, weak, or rusted, causing more electricity to flow to your appliances than should be flowing there.
Faulty light bulbs and power outages can cause dimmed lights. But if these issues don’t apply to you, your electrical panel could be the reason why your lights are dim. Persistently dim lights could be a sign of weak, uncontrolled, or inconsistent power flow.
Popping and crackling sounds or burning odors are never good signs. If you notice anything like this coming from your panel, call us and schedule electrical panel repairs right away. You might be in danger, or your equipment could be frying.
Widespread rusting is a sign that you have an old electrical panel. Rust keeps electrical power from flowing effectively, which could have a cascading effect on how well the other appliances in your home function.
When repairing your panel, electricians may have to replace wiring, breakers, fuses, or other components. The severity of any problems with these components can vary, but our team has the skills to handle anything.
