Modern life revolves around electricity. The electrical panel in your home controls all the power coming in, and if there are any problems with it, you could find yourself in the dark age until it’s corrected. That panel offers you an easy and safe way to shut the power down to the entire home, such as when repairs need to occur. And if it’s not updated to modern standards, you might find a modern electrical lifestyle could lead to problems if that panel can’t handle the load.
- If you have a fuse box you should replace it because over time they melt and become unsafe
- If you are adding appliances the load way be too much for an old electrical panel so you may need to replace it
- When you have an electrical panel that trips too often that may be a indication that it needs to be replaced
“It also allows you a way to safely shut off the power in an emergency or to restore power when a circuit breaker trips or fuse blows.”
