Electrical Panel Replacements
An electrical panel is the control system of most residential and commercial electrical systems. Panels distribute the various electrical output lines throughout the property. A damaged or out-dated electrical panel can have a number of drawbacks. If you are dealing with an old or damaged electrical panel, a replacement and/or panel upgrades can provide a range of benefits. Attempting to replace your own electrical panels can be very difficult and costly leading to potential injury. Replacements that aren’t properly completed can often result in further repair requirements and even electrical fires.
At ElectricMan our electrical experts can work efficiently to remove the old panel and replace it with an updated and more optimal one. Call or email ElectricMan today for an electrical panel inspection, removal and or replacement consultation.
Old Electrical Panels
Out-dated electrical panels can offer electrical output levels that are less than ideal for today’s requirements for appliances and electrical systems. Fuse based electrical panels were common in Candian homes until the late 1980’s. New appliances, lighting fixtures, and other electrical devices can require high levels of electricity that can put old fuse-based panels at risk. Old panels that are stressed, rusted or otherwise damaged can also lead to electrical fires in your home or business. If your panel shows any signs of damage or is still a fuse-based model, contact ElectricMan for professional panel replacement services.
