What is the average cost to upgrade an electrical service panel?

The average cost to upgrade an electrical service panel is about $500-$4,000. The price can vary depending on: 

  • How many amps you want your electrical panel to have 
  • If new wiring is required
  • The contractor’s hourly rate

Although upgrading an electrical panel can be expensive, it is very worthwhile. If you have your home remodeled or purchase a large appliance that requires more power, it is smart to get your electrical panel upgraded to account for the additional power your home will require. Call us today to get your electrical panel upgraded.

Can a homeowner replace an electrical panel?

A homeowner should not replace their own electrical panel. In some locations, you can obtain permits to replace your own electrical panel, but it is strongly recommended that you have a professional electrician perform the replacement for you. An electrical panel has much more electrical power running through it than a basic electrical outlet, making it dangerous to replace on your own if you are not familiar with the complex workings of your electrical panel. To get your electrical panel replaced, contact us today.

How do I know if my breaker box is overloaded?

Signs of an Outdated Electrical Panel

The electrical panel in your home is in charge of regulating the amount of electricity coursing through the wires. If too much electricity is demanded, the panel will interrupt the circuit and stop electricity from overloading the wiring. However, with time and an increased usage of electric devices, a panel can start to malfunction. An electrical panel that is broken leaves your home at risk for fire from overheating.

Signs that you might need an electrical panel update could include:

  • Crackling sounds from the panel.
  • Corrosion or rust on the circuit breakers.
  • The inside of the electrical panel feels warm.
  • Appliances are not running at full power.
  • There are no GFCI outlets (ground fault circuit interrupters) near water sources.
  • Your home has a fuse block panel or a split-bus panel, neither of which have a main breaker.
