Replacing obsolete electrical panels in Quebec City


As the most important component in your home's electrical system, the electrical panel requires special attention, especially when it needs to be replaced. Yes, at some point, you need to consider this type of work in your home. Why do it and who should do the replacement? We tell you everything through this article.

Why replace your electrical panel?

In the case of a new acquisition

In a newly purchased home, it is important to check the condition of the electrical panel. If you are buying an older property, it is strongly recommended that you have this equipment replaced in its entirety.

Indeed, it is difficult to know the probable failures that the old device may have suffered. Therefore, it is more prudent to replace it, as well as the electrical entrance, to prevent possible accidents.

In the case of replacement of a worn out electrical panel

After many years of use, the electrical panel and its various components tend to wear out and deteriorate. Over time, the risk of accidents, including short circuits and fire hazards, increases. That's why it's a good idea to retire your old panel when it's over 10 years old.

In the case of a house extension

If you are planning to expand the rooms in your home, or to add upper floors, you will also need to consider replacing your electrical panel. The old equipment may not be able to support the needs of your home with new rooms.

In the case of the purchase of new electrical appliances

Finally, replacement is inevitable when you plan to install new electrical appliances. For example, if you plan to renew your heating appliances or your household appliances (refrigerator, induction cooker, television...), you should replace the old device, since it may not cover the needs of the new appliances.

In addition, it is important that your electrical panel always complies with current safety standards. As these are regularly updated with new technologies, you should also always make sure that your system is not obsolete.
