Sometimes it’s hard to tell if your due for an electrical panel upgrade. Although you may have a fairly new panel (within the last 15 years or so), there are other signs that could indicate it’s time.
Some of these include:
A lot of older electrical panels have fuse blocks instead of circuit breakers.
Newer electrical panels are much more convenient and are built to the latest safety standards.Modern panels also come with extra protection built directly into the panel.
Other protective measures that you can install directly into your panel include Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers and Arc-Fault Circuit Breakers.
Having surge protection built into what is essentially the base of your home’s operations means that you don’t have to worry about appliances or electrical devices getting fried.
