Champlin Park Electrical Panel Upgrade
Your home's electrical panel is the director of the entire electrical system. However, if your panel is over 30 years old, it's probably time for an upgrade, and here's why.
Outdated or overwhelmed electrical panels are a common cause of electrical fires. Investing in an upgraded panel can handle the increased power needs of modern families while protecting them from power surges and possible outages.
New appliances, HVAC systems, the plethora of gadgets we have, and even solar panels require significant electrical panel capacity. Upgrading your electrical panel provides more "bandwidth" to serve your various electrical devices without stressing the system.
Electric costs are rising, so it's in your wallet's best interest to save money on your electric bill whenever possible. Newer electrical panels are designed to be more energy efficient. This means they require less energy to power them, which can result in lower energy bills.
Modern electrical panels are better equipped to ensure a steady flow of electricity throughout your house, so you won't experience sudden drops in power or surges when using multiple appliances or devices at once.
Reduced risk of shock
Outdated panels can be more prone to electric shock. Upgrading your panel reduces the risk of shocks and other electrocution-related injuries.
Lower insurance costs
Insurance companies often offer lower premiums for homes with updated electrical panels. This is because they know that electrical fires are much less likely to occur in homes with upgraded systems.
If you're unsure how old your electrical panel is or need an upgrade, call us for an inspection and recommendation.

Expert Outlet Repair and Replacement
Besides the electrical panel or fuse box, the outlets are an equally important component of your electrical system and the one that receives the most wear and tear. However most people never think about upgrading their outlets, but here are a few signs that it may be time to repair or replace them.
Loose outlets or plugs
If an outlet feels loose or wobbly when you plug something in or the plug falls out easily, it could be a sign that the outlet is damaged or the wires inside have become loose. This can be a safety hazard, as loose wires can lead to electrical arcing and fire.
If an outlet feels hot to the touch or emits a burning smell, it could be overheating caused by a damaged wire, circuit overload, or a failing outlet.
Flickering lights could be a faulty bulb or a loose or failing connection.
If your home has old, two-pronged outlets, it's time to consider upgrading to three-pronged models because they provide a safer, more reliable connection and are grounded.
GFCI outlet installation
Finally, it's worth replacing old outlets with GFCI models in places where water and electricity are present, such as the bathroom, pool or hot tub area, basement, kitchen, or crawl space. GFCI outlets can save your life by shutting off power the instant they detect a change in the current flow.
Call our expert electricians to upgrade or replace your outlets to ensure your family's safety and give you more plug-in options.
