Your home's electrical panel is the central hub through which electricity flows, and as technology advances and new devices are added, it's important to keep it up-to-date to ensure your home is safe and efficient. At Tungsten Electric, we understand the critical role that electrical panels play and offer reliable upgrade services to keep your home's electrical panel functioning properly.
There are several reasons why you may need to upgrade your electrical panel. If your home is over 20 years old, you may still have a fuse box, which can be outdated and potentially dangerous due to its tendency to be overly sensitive and require frequent replacement of fuses. On the other hand, circuit breakers are more modern and efficient, and upgrading to a newer panel can provide more circuits and a higher amperage capacity for stronger, more consistent power flow and the installation of new outlets.
If you're experiencing constant circuit breaker tripping, appliances not running at full power, flickering lights, or your panel is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider an upgrade. An upgrade may also be necessary if you're adding a power-intensive addition like a hot tub, have non-grounded outlets, loose or burnt connections, or want to improve the strength of the circuit.
At Tungsten Electric, our licensed electricians use the industry's best practices to assess and upgrade your electrical panel in a safe and efficient manner, including scheduling with the city to ensure power is disconnected during work if needed. We'll replace the entire breaker box if necessary and upgrade individual breakers as needed. We'll also add new wiring and circuits and upgrade existing wires, replacing older elements like knobs and tubes or aluminum wiring with safer, up-to-date systems. Outlets near water sources will be given GFCI breakers for added safety.
