Panel Repair & Replacement
The Heart of Your Electrical System
The purpose of an electrical panel is to control the electricity going to each circuit. Without your electrical panel, it is impossible to regulate all of the electricity coming in and going out.
The panel and circuit breakers protect homes and businesses from power surges and other possible hazards. This makes your circuit breaker panel the most important part of your home’s electrical system.
With regular maintenance performed by a licensed and experienced electrician, your electrical panel can function properly for three decades or more. As with most things, time allows for more problems to arise.
The two biggest safety concerns with electrical panels are age and type. There are two manufacturers of panels that are potentially dangerous: those made by Federal Pacific Electric, and Zinsco.
If you suspect that you may have a Federal Pacific Electric, Zinsco, or other outdated circuit breaker panel in your home, your home may be not be able to protect itself against overcurrents and short circuits. Make sure that your electrical circuit breaker panel is safe and matches your modern electrical load by scheduling an inspection with Kanon Electric.
Breakers may trip from lightning strikes, power surges from the utility company, and overloaded electrical circuits. Circuits can easily become overloaded, which is why major appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers should have their own dedicated circuits.
With increasing energy demands, old or faulty electrical panels can overheat and become a fire hazard. Older homes, for instance, may still have a 60-amp service. If your breakers frequently trip and you are short on power, schedule an electrical panel inspection as soon as you can.
Other signs of an outdated breaker panel:
- Sparks or Burning Odor
- Malfunctioning Switches
- Flickering/Dimming Lights
- Electrical Shocks from Switches/Outlets
- Burn Marks, Rust, or Corrosion
- Older than 15 Years
If a problem does arise, it is important to never attempt to fix your electrical panel on your own.
