WHEN AND WHY TO CHANGE IT
The electrical panel is the main component of your home's electrical system. Why, when and how do you replace it? These are important questions to which you need to get satisfactory answers.
There are several situations in which your electrical panel must be replaced. Here are the most common ones.
After many years of use, the chances of an electrical panel failing are increased. In particular, key components may begin to fail. It is strongly recommended that you do not wait for a short circuit to occur before having the component replaced.
In addition, you can take advantage of the replacement to incorporate modern technologies that optimize your operating comfort. For example, you can switch from your old panel with fuses to one with circuit breakers. This saves you from having to change the fuses in case of a problem. In addition, circuit breakers are safer.
Safety standards for electrical installations in a home change with new technologies. So, if your electrical panel is relatively obsolete, it is time to have a device installed that complies with the current standards. This will ensure maximum safety and optimize your comfort.
Today, energy conservation is the focus of attention. Replacing your old panel can go a long way towards achieving this goal. For example, you can have a modular timer installed to automatically turn on and off your heating appliances.
Similarly, replacing your electrical panel allows you to install a timer switch. This will automatically turn off the lighting after a pre-programmed time. This is particularly useful for outdoor or hallway lighting.
When you start to expand the rooms in your home, you should also consider installing a new electrical panel. The old one may not be able to meet the needs of your expanded home. You will be able to install a more efficient system.
