    Reliable Solutions for Electrical Panels in Villa Park, Elmhurst & Surrounding Areas

    Your home’s electrical system is centrally controlled from one location, known as the electrical panel. The panel is made up of a bunch of switches, normally referred to as breakers. If you have to make frequent trips to this panel to reset a breaker, it’s a good indication that it may be time for repair. If, on the other hand, the service that runs through your panel is insufficient to power all of your home’s gadgets and appliances, you’re likely due for a service upgrade.

    Knowing when it’s time to repair anything in your home is always a great way to prevent further issues and avoid costly repair or replacement. However, when it’s your electrical panel that’s causing problems, it’s all the more essential to get the issue resolved immediately. For this reason, it’s good to be aware of any irregular activity that could indicate you have an issue with your electrical panel.

    Common warning signs that your electrical panel needs repair include:

    • Your circuit breakers will often trip

    What Is an Electrical Panel Upgrade?

    Your electrical panel’s ability to power numerous devices at one time is dependant on the amperage of your service. Homes of the past were usually able to be powered by a 100-amp service. However, many homes of today require a larger service – ranging anywhere from a 200 to 400-amp service, depending on the size of the household and how many electronics are operating simultaneously. Having an electrical service that’s too small can lead to a variety of problems, from flickering lights to tripped breakers.
