March 10, 2015

The importance of a working and compatible electrical service panel cannot be underestimated. If you are planning to re-model or renovate your home, by installing electrical equipment like lighting or ceiling fans, something that you should consider is the voltage capacity of your home’s electrical system. A deficient electrical panel cannot only damage sensitive electronic equipment over time, but can also increase the likelihood of electric shocks. In many cases, homeowners often ignore the benefits of an electrical panel upgrade, and instead choose to use multiple power strips and extension cords.

What does an upgrade offer

Before acknowledging the benefits of an electrical panel upgrade, it is important to note that in some cases, these upgrades may be considered legally required, depending on residential codes and regulations. An upgraded electrical panel increases the safety aspect, by reducing the possibility of short-circuiting and voltage overloads.


If you’re installing the latest electronic equipment like OLED TVs or smart refrigerators, an electrical panel upgrade can greatly improve the level of energy-efficiency that your home experiences. These devices often consume large amounts of electricity at unparalleled rates. The latest electrical service panels are able to manage and control the flow of electricity, reducing the risk of such electrical equipment short-circuiting or malfunctioning.
