What Is an Electrical Panel? Why Is It Important to Upgrade?

Electrical panels regulate the electricity running through your home or commercial building. If your house or building demands too much electricity, this issue can trip a circuit breaker within your electrical panel to cut off electricity and prevent a wiring overload and possible fire. The electrical panel breaks the circuit and regulates the electricity in your electrical system to avoid an overload causing a fire. Upgrading your electrical panel will ensure your family, employees, tenants, etc., are safe.

Signs of a Defective Commercial Electrical Panel

When an electrical panel gets older, it can easily malfunction more frequently. This common issue is caused by overloaded circuits, which can lead to flickering lights and turning off or unplugging appliances to use other electronics you plug into the same electrical circuit. The circuit breakers will trip often if you have a defective electrical panel. If these breakers fail to trip, someone might get shocked.

Breakers failing to trip from an overload can cause a fire due to overheating. If your electrical panel is over 25 years old, you need to have a licensed electrician look at it. The following are common signs to watch out for indicating you might need a commercial electrical panel replacement or upgrade:

  • You hear crackling sounds from the electrical panel.
  • You see corrosion or rust on the circuit breakers.
  • The interior of the electrical panel is warm.
  • Appliances seem to be running at less than full power.
  • Outlets near water sources, including sinks, tubs, and dishwashers, stop the electricity if an appliance comes into contact with water, preventing electrocution.
  • You have to use extension cords often.
  • You have a 60-amp electrical service.
  • You have a 100-amp electrical service, but it still can’t operate some appliances.
  • Your commercial structure has a fuse block panel or split-bus panel, which does not have a main breaker.
