    4 Signs You Need Electrical Panel Services

    Burning Smell from Breaker Box

    As with anything electrical, a burning smell is never a good sign. However, it can signify major and dangerous issues with the breaker box and your electrical system. If you smell burning from your breaker box, call an “electrician near me” from a trusted contractor to ensure a safe and quick inspection. A burning smell from the breaker box could signify melted wires.

    Home Is More Than 20 Years Old

    While having an older home may not necessitate an electrical panel upgrade if you have improved your current device, it is still good to have an electrician do an inspection. These inspections ensure your electrical system is up to code and reveal what (if any) improvements need to be made, especially if you are considering a remodel or new appliance installation.

    Faulty Light Switch

    Fuse boxes are in most older houses. If your home has a fuse box, it is time to reach out to a licensed and certified electrician to help you with an electrical panel replacement. You want to keep your home up to code, and there is no fuse box in any house in the state that complies with minimum standards.

    Breakers Trip Repeatedly

    Breakers can trip for many reasons一problems with your home’s electrical panel, faulty wiring, or a bad breaker. Once all simple fixes are run through, especially if you notice burn marks or rust on the breaker, it is likely time for an electrical panel replacement.

    Electrical Panel & Circuit Breaker FAQ


    If your electrical panel is outdated, it’s probably not meeting your home’s needs. As we continue to add more and more electronics and appliances, we demand more from our panel, and older ones are not up to the task. So if your panel is 25-years old, or you’re noticing frequent shorts or dimming lights, it’s time for an upgrade.


    A short circuit (often called a “short”) occurs when the wire carrying the electrical current (referred to as the “hot wire” and usually black) has contact with the grounded conductor (the “neutral,” generally white) or the equipment ground (the “bare copper,” typically green). When a short happens, it generates an overabundance of heat. If left unchecked, it can create sparks resulting in an electrical fire. In the event of a short, your electrical panel will cut the power to the circuit.

    What Should I Do if My Breaker Panel Is Hot?

    If you can safely turn the power off, do so and give us a call immediately. On the other hand, you might need an upgrade or some maintenance. Either way, this is a job for professionals.
