Electric Panel Upgrade In Woodstock, GA

Electricity powers many of the conveniences of modern life. But as your power usage continues to grow, you may find that your home’s electrical panel isn’t up to the task. In order to keep up with your family’s power demands, you may need an electrical panel upgrade to ensure you have a steady, safe supply of electricity.

At Poss Electric, we’ve helped hundreds of homeowners in the Woodstock, GA, area with their electrical panel upgrades. Our trained, licensed, and insured technicians are committed to providing you the highest levels of customer service while ensuring that you receive high-quality workmanship.

How to Tell If Your Electrical Panel Needs Replaced

Your electrical panel sits at the heart of your home’s electrical system. Also known as the breaker box, the panel controls the flow of electricity throughout your home. Its job is to make sure that each outlet receives enough power (and not too much).

Eventually, though, you’ll need to replace your electrical panel. In addition to the wear and tear your panel goes through year after year, increasing power loads mean that panels installed as recently as ten years ago may no longer have the capacity to handle all of the electricity your family needs. The only permanent solution to the problem is an electrical panel upgrade.

Here are some of the more common signs that your electrical panel needs to be replaced:

  • The electrical panel feels warm to the touch
  • Flickering lights
  • Circuit breakers trip frequently
  • Crackling or hissing noises
  • Odd smells, like burning plastic
  • Rust on your panel (this indicates water damage)

It’s crucial to upgrade your electrical system if you have a fuse box in your home. Not only is this older technology not rated to handle current power loads, but it is increasingly difficult to find replacement fuses. Actually, it is impossible to find fuses for some boxes. Replacing a fuse box will guarantee you have the power you need while also protecting your home.

FPE and Zinsco Panels

There are two more electrical panels out there that homeowners should replace immediately. Those are 1) electrical panels manufactured by Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) and 2) Zinsco. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has deemed these devices defective due to their increased risk of fire and electrocution.

If your home was built before 1990, you should ensure that these companies did not make your panel. If you discover that you have either an FPE or Zinsco panel in your home, contact Poss Electric today to schedule your electrical panel upgrade. Nothing matters more to us than your home’s safety, and we’ll work with you to get your panel replaced as soon as possible.

How Electrical Panel Upgrades Work

The experts at Poss Electric have more than 20 years of experience working with electrical panels in Woodstock. When you contact our team of experts, we’ll send a technician to your home to inspect your panel. Once this inspection is complete, your technician will discuss your options with you and give you an estimate and timeline for the project.

As soon as you and your electrician agree on the details, we’ll get started—often that same day. We’ll work hard to get the work done as quickly as possible to minimize any disruptions to your daily life. Once we remove your old panel, we’ll check for any additional problems, including worn wires, missing ground wires, or other signs of damage.

Once we’re satisfied that your home’s wiring is safe, we’ll install your new panel, ensuring that all connections are safe and secure, with no wiring left exposed. After we’ve fully installed the panel, we’ll reconnect your home’s power, then test each breaker one by one, so you can rest assured that your system is working properly.

After the final inspection, our electricians will clean up any mess they made, leaving your home cleaner than when they arrived. If you have any problems afterward or are not satisfied with the work you received, simply contact Poss Electric, and we’ll do whatever we can to make the situation right. Our customers are our main focus, and we’re not happy until you’re happy.
