If you’re still working on your holiday décor, it’s important to make sure your electrical panel can handle the electrical load. Make sure to read further before you start plugging away.
A panel upgrade increases the amount of amperage in your home. Basically, your home is capped at a certain amount of amperage and this relates to your electrical needs.
Whether you need panel upgrades depends on your home’s demand for electricity and if it exceeds capacity. If you’re buying more appliances or items that utilize electricity, your electrical needs rise.
During the holiday months, we notice an unbelievable amount of people calling when hanging up lights because they are experiencing tripper breakers or have electrical issues.
You will need a panel upgrade when the following occurs
- Too many breaker trips
- Flickering lights
- Appliances are too hot
- Last upgrade was a decade ago
- Getting new high-power appliances
