Electrical Panel Upgrade Services in Warren County, NY

The Best Services to Upgrade an Electrical Panel

Whether you own a residential or commercial property, your electrical panel plays an instrumental role. Electrical panels regulate the flow of electricity within your home or business, ensuring safe and effective performance. When too much power is pushed through a circuit, the circuit breaker may trip within your electrical panel, preventing the electricity from overloading the wiring. Overloads can be detrimental to your safety, so your electrical panel must be up-to-date and capable of handling its vital position.

With time, electrical panel upgrades are required to keep your property running safely while keeping up with the increasing power demands of your home. That’s why Mr. Electric of Queensbury provides trusted electrical panel upgrade services. We provide our service to upgrade electrical panels for residential properties in Warren County, Saratoga County, and Washington County, NY.

  • Your home receives its power supply through a main power line owned by your local electric provider. This power line extends from outside your home to a meter on your property that then connects to your electrical panel, typically found in the basement, garage, utility room, or within a closet. Your home's electrical panel features a series of switches that are called circuit breakers. The circuit breakers divide the main power line into smaller sections for easy control and access to different parts of the home. The circuit breakers may be doubled or tripled together in some cases, as those switches are responsible for the function of appliances that require more significant power draws. Within the door of your home’s electrical panel, you may find a label that indicates the function of each appliance and outlet included on your electrical panel. The switches may have numbers to indicate the amp capacity. The electrical panel will also include a main breaker that controls the entire electrical system for easy shut-off capabilities.

  • Outdated electrical panels will inevitably malfunction, and the cause is typically due to overloaded circuits. The early symptoms of this occurrence may include lights flickering or the need to turn off a certain appliance to use a different appliance or device connected to the same circuit. However, when an electrical panel is defective or failing, the circuit breakers will begin tripping more frequently, or they will lose the ability to trip, which can result in electric shock. In the most severe cases, a circuit breaker that fails to trip may result in smoke, melted wires, or even fire due to overheating.

Determining If It’s Time for an Electrical Panel Upgrade

To determine whether your electrical panel is performing as it should or if it is time for an electrical panel upgrade, it’s important to conduct an inspection. This is particularly important for electrical panels that are over 25 years old. There are specific signs to look for when performing an inspection, including the following:

  • Crackling sounds
  • Corrosion or rust on the circuit breakers
  • The inside of your electrical panel is warm or hot to the touch
  • Appliances cannot perform to their full power potential
  • The outlets nearby water sources are not GFCIs
  • You find yourself needing to use extension cords
  • Your property has a 60-amp electrical service
  • Your property has a 100-amp electrical service but cannot support certain appliances
  • Your property has a fuse block or split-bus electrical panel with no main circuit breaker
  • Properties over 25 years old may be equipped with hazardous or insufficient electrical panels, which require immediate electrical panel upgrades to mitigate safety risks. If your property has any of these electrical panels, it's important to contact Mr. Electric of Queensbury at your earliest convenience to schedule an electrical panel upgrade service to safeguard your home and enhance your protection. Keep an eye out for the following electrical panels:

    • Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Electrical Panel - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has deemed FPE electrical panels as hazardous. They have a defect that threatens your safety, as they can cause electrical shock and fires.
    • Zinsco Electrical Panel - Zinsco electrical panels are defective, as they allow power to circuit despite having the breakers turned off, posing a safety risk. Zinsco panels are also known to result in melting circuit breakers and have a heightened risk for electric shock and fires.
    • Pushmatic Electrical Panels - Pushmatic electrical panels have insufficient switches that can become challenging to reset. These electrical panels also do not feature a main circuit breaker.
    • Fuse Boxes - Fuse boxes are the most outdated electrical panels, with only 30-60-amps. Fuse boxes are no longer manufactured due to safety hazards such as electric shock and fire.
