When to Order an Electrical Panel Inspection

If you live in an older home and have not had an inspection by a Alamo CA licensed electrician, it is a good idea to have a professional come out and not only check out the electrical panel but also look over the wiring, outlets, lighting and all aspects of the electrical system. A thorough inspection is highly recommended if your home is more than 25 years old, but even homes that are about 10 years old may benefit from an electrical inspection.

How Often Should Breaker Boxes Be Replaced?

It is possible that an electrical panel that seems to be functioning properly could still be out of date. A general rule of thumb is electrical panels needs to be replaced every 25-40 years. If you've lived in your home for a long time without a replacement, or have moved into a new home and are unsure of the age of the breaker box, there are signs to look for to determine if replacements are necessary. If there are burn marks, burning plastic smells, or buzzing or cracking sounds around or even inside the electrical panel, a professional electrician should inspect the breaker box immediately.

The following are signs that may indicate that you need electrical panel replacement:

  • Your lights have been flickering - When your electrical grid is spread too thin, you might not notice right away. But one of the first signs is that your lights will begin to flicker as there isn't enough juice to consistently keep them on.
  • The breaker switches in the panel are corroded or rusty - It's a good idea to visually inspect your electrical panel on a regular basis. If there is any rust or corrosion then there's water where there shouldn't be and water and electricity are a dangerous combination.
  • It is noticeably warm inside the breaker box - While electricity does a ton of miraculous things, it's not supposed to get hot when it does so. If it does, make sure to contact our Alamo electrical panel replacement experts.
  • Your property has been experiencing power surges - Another sign of needing electrical panel replacement is one power surge after another, you might want to consider surge protection as well.
  • You have had to use extension cords or move appliances because one or more outlets are not working - Make sure to double check that it's not the electrical appliance by testing another in the same outlet. Don't consider putting a power brick on another because that's a fire hazard.
  • Using more than one appliance on the same outlet reduces power to both appliances - When it comes to your electricity you shouldn't have any trade off if you're using multiple appliances at the same time and if you do contact our Alamo electrical panel replacement experts.
  • The breaker box is making crackling noises - Like with heat, your electricity shouldn't be making noise. It doesn't matter if it's crackling or buzzing, give us a call.
