As the rainy season descends, it might be time to consider calling for electrical panel upgrades for your Alpharetta, GA home. The electrical panel box controls power flows throughout your home. When a circuit pulls down too much power, it trips the circuit breaker, turning off all outlets and appliances connected to that circuit. With homes using more electronic devices than ever, having enough access to power often means upgrading the electrical panel. At Arc Angel Electric, our licensed and certified electricians can test all your circuits and recommend maintenance, repairs and upgrades.
"Guys were professional and quick. Explained every step in diagnostics and repair. Highly recommended."
Building regulations lag behind consumer behavior. You likely own and operate dozens more appliances and electronics than your grandparents did. Phones, computers, tablets, game systems, TVs, smart lights, smart thermostats and dozens of other systems depend on a steady stream of power from the electrical panel box. When power is interrupted, sometimes it means everything turns off, but other times it might mean a power surge could damage anything plugged into that circuit. Upgraded electrical panels allow a home to use more power and spread out usage through more circuits.
An upgraded electrical panel also means you can install more outlets. If you’ve got extension cords and splitters installed on outlet after outlet, you could probably use a few more, particularly if the new ones won’t lead to frequent trips to the box to fix a tripped circuit.
Here are a few signs that might mean it’s time to upgrade your electrical panel:
Burn marks or char around outlets or cords
Too many extension cords in use
Flickering lights or brownouts
Hot or sparking outlets
Increases on the electric bill
Older wiring and electrical panels also mean more waste. Upgrading your panel may help drop your electric bill and even cover the repair cost in the long run.
