Electrical Panel Upgrades

Electrical Panel Upgrades

Has an insurance adjuster told you that they wouldn't write you an insurance policy because of your electrical panel?

Would you like to add a piece of machinery in your garage for your favorite hobby, whether it be wood working or working on cars, but your current electrical panel is all filled up?

Whether you have an old unsafe panel or a small panel, you may need to have a new panel upgrade done by John's Electric.

Some signs that you may need a panel upgrade are flickering lights and breakers that trip constantly.

So what is an electrical panel? Think of your electrical panel as the heart of your electrical system. If your panel (heart) were to stop working, then you would have a big problem on your hands.

All the power that comes into your home originates from the utility department first, then to your electric service. From there it goes to your electric panel (heart). From there, electricity is distributed in wires to different locations providing you power where you need it most.

You may not have a panel with circuit breakers; you may have an outdated fuse box or even worse an electrical panel that has lost its UL approval because they have been proven to cause fires.

There a couple of manufacturers that went out of business because they were forced to close by UL because they made inferior products. Unfortunately, many of these panels and breakers are in thousands of homes.

Circuit breakers are designed to shut off quickly if there is ever a problem. (A fraction of a second) This keeps you and your family safe from electrocution, electric shock, and house fires. With the old-style breakers, some of them will not trip under a test load for at least one minute; some did not trip (turn off) at all.

Problems arise from electrical panels for many reasons. We will list just a few below:

  1. Loose connections
  2. Burnt connections
  3. Double tapped circuits
  4. Old Outdated Fuses
  5. Not UL approved

Unfortunately, we have seen just that in many of the homes around Birmingham. If your home is in need of a panel upgrade, then call John's Electric today. We will send one of our highly qualified safety electricians to your home and give you a compete for evaluation.

By having a new panel or load center installed in your home, it will ensure that you’re getting the most out of your home’s electrical system and help avoid electrical hazards and that is what it’s about. Keeping your loved ones safe.

John's Electric offers a NO QUESTIONS ASKED, 5 YEAR WARRANTY on material and labor for all electrical panel upgrades.

Mr. Teele arrived quickly, diagnosed our outage problem and fixed it that same afternoon. We have an older electrical system that many other electricians simply won't work with. But Mr. Teele confidently made repairs and even called to check on us the next day to ensure all was working well.
