  • The electrical panel in your home or business is connected to the main power line traveling into your property. The line is attached directly to your electrical panel, allowing the panel to disperse energy throughout your residential or commercial electrical system. If you look inside an electrical panel, you'll find rows of switches or circuits. These circuit breakers distribute power into smaller branch lines that are connected to all the outlets on your property. The switches are typically numbered to indicate which outlet they’re connected to and should also show how many amps a line can carry before the corresponding breaker trips. Next to the switches is the main power breaker, which allows you to turn off power to the entire system.

  • If you’re curious about how much your professional electrical panel upgrade will cost, it’s important to remember that investing in a modern electrical system is an investment in your property and safety. The benefits of professionally upgrading your electrical panel far outweigh any expenses involved in the process. Mr. Electric of St. Paul is happy to provide you with an exact quote for our electrical panel upgrade or replacement services.

Age Is More Than Just a Number


If the electrical panel in your home or business is over 25 years old, Mr. Electric of St. Paul recommends upgrading or replacing it if it's beyond repair. Not only can outdated electrical panels cause system-wide problems with your electrical system, but they can be dangerous to continue operating once they’ve shown signs of defect. It’s essential to call a licensed electrician immediately if you’re experiencing any issues with your commercial or residential electrical panel.

Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Electrical Panel

FPE panels were typically used in homes built from 1950 to 1980 and featured several design defects that increased the risk of electrical shock or fire. The PFE electrical panel has been classified as defective by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. If you have one of these electrical panels in your home or business, our experts can professionally replace it.

Zinsco Electrical Panel

Zinsco panels were available decades ago but haven’t been available to be installed in homes since the mid-1970s. They can still be found in some modern homes. Their defective design lets power continue to flow after you’ve turned off the breakers, leading to melted switches.

Pushmatic Electrical Panel

Pushmatic electrical panels don’t include the main breaker switch, which makes cutting off all your power flow at once impossible. Additionally, the switches on these panels are notorious for being weak and may be harder to reset over time.

Fuse Boxes

The oldest version of electrical panels, fuse boxes can only handle a maximum of 60 amps of power. The average home today needs around 200 amps to run all its appliances, lighting, and electronics efficiently and safely. The electricians at Mr. Electric of St. Paul recommend replacing this type of panel as soon as possible.
