Time to Upgrade your Electrical Panel?

Did you know that a home's electrical panel usually lasts around 20 to 30 years? So, if you're thinking about sprucing up your place with new appliances or renovations, or if you're concerned about the safety of your current electrical system, it's a perfect time to reach out to the experts at Ragsdale for an upgrade!

What is an Electrical Panel?

Your home's power flows through an external electrical meter, channeling it to the central electrical panel—a sturdy steel box that can be affixed to either an interior or exterior wall. Acting as the nerve center of your home's power system, this main panel houses all the essential circuit breakers. These safety switches cut off power to specific areas whenever an electrical circuit becomes overloaded. To ensure the consistent and safe operation of your electrical system, it is vital to maintain the health of your main electrical panel.

Signs Your Home’s Electrical Panel Needs Repair

Just like any other part of your home, there might be a point where your electrical panel requires some attention. Whether it's repairs, upgrades, or a whole new panel, our team of experienced electricians in Metro Atlanta is here to help. They'll carefully evaluate the issues and offer their expert recommendations to keep your home's electrical system running smoothly.

Common reasons your electrical panel may need to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Your electrical panel is very old

  • Lights are flickering

  • You can’t use multiple appliances plugged into the same circuit

  • Your breakers trip often

  • Breakers are overheating, causing fire, smoke, and melted wires

  • You hear crackling sounds coming from your electrical panel

  • Appliances are no longer able to run at full power

  • You use extension cords often

  • You have an older home with a fuse box panel that doesn't have a main breaker

  • You are renovating or adding an addition to your home

  • Outlets near water sources (sinks, showers, dishwashers, and washing machines) are not GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupters)

When assessing the condition of your electrical panel, our team takes into account several key factors to determine whether it can be repaired or if it requires a complete replacement. We understand the importance of making an informed decision that prioritizes the safety, efficiency, and long-term functionality of your electrical system.

Here are the factors we consider during our evaluation:

  • The age of the electrical panel
  • The reliability of your current electrical panel
  • How safe your electrical panel is currently

Our experienced team combines their technical expertise with a thorough assessment of these factors to provide you with a comprehensive recommendation regarding your electrical panel.
