Professional Electrical Panel Upgrades In Waukegan

Premier Electrical Breaker Services in Lake County

Your electrical panel connects the wires coming in from the street to the electric system in your home or business. While it is not uncommon for people to implement electrical repairs or upgrades over time, the service panel is often neglected. However, when new equipment, media devices, or appliances are added to your home, the strain put on the electrical panel skyrockets. If you find yourself running to the panel to flip the breaker on a regular basis, your panel is likely in desperate need of an upgrade.

Outdated Electrical Panels Are A Safety Issue

Outdated electrical service panels are not only inefficient and prone to short out but can actually pose a serious danger to you and your home. Unfortunately, the Lake County area is saturated with alarmingly old electric panels. In fact, we know this because Hucker Electric installed some of the original, now-outdated panels as far back as 1929. Today, however, these overworked panels have been the cause of countless fires throughout Waukegan. Upgrading electric panels might not be the most exciting of home projects but updating them could be vital to your personal safety.

Knowing When to Replace Your Electrical Service Panel

If you have never had an electrician service or inspect your electrical panel, you may not be aware of whether it needs to be replaced. There are several reasons that an upgrade could be necessary.

You should consider an Upgrade if:

  • You are installing appliances: New appliances can demand a large amount of energy. If you are installing more than one appliance, there is a good chance you will need to upgrade your amperage to meet the demand.
  • You own an outdated fuse box: On older homes, fuses constantly need to be replaced whenever there is a current overload. Upgrading to a breaker box will save you a headache. Fuses are also a potential fire hazard and should be upgraded at some point.
  • You are building an add-on or renovating: An electrical sub-panel is a great option to consider if you are adding a building on your property or you want your workshop to have its own breaker box. If your renovations include new outlets and power demands, you may need an upgrade.
  • Older wiring: If you live in an older home, be sure to have your wiring inspected. Due to deterioration over time, an older electrical system becomes increasingly less safe if you do not upgrade it.
