The electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system. While it distributes power to all the outlets and lighting throughout your house, its most important function is to provide protection from circuit overload. As with all other electrical components, electrical panels can become worn and damaged over time and require repairs or total replacement. You might also encounter the need to increase the size of your electrical service to support home improvements such as EV chargers.

You’ve likely never given a lot of thought to your electrical panel. This component, however, is essential to the proper functioning of all your electrical equipment. It’s common for homeowners to require an electrical panel upgrade and not even realize it. There are two main reasons why an electrical panel may need to be upgraded. The first reason is safety. As a panel ages, it will become less safe and eventually require a replacement to prevent such hazards as electrocution and electrical fires.

The second reason your panel may need to be upgraded is to increase your electrical system’s capacity. If your home has a service size of 100 amps or less, it may be necessary to increase the amperage to keep up with the power demands within your home. Upgrades are typically needed when adding large new appliances, such as an AC system or hot tub. However, many homes require a larger capacity simply because they have so many more devices to power than they used to.
There are several signs that it’s time to upgrade your electrical service, including:
- Frequent tripping of circuit breakers
- Your home is more than 20 years old
- Higher utility bills
- Obsolete panels like: FPE, Zinsco, Pushmatic
- Electrical panel does not have a main breaker
- No more available space for new circuit breakers for future upgrades like EV chargers, hot tubs, and solar
