As a responsible homeowner, it’s important to ensure the safety and reliability of your home’s electrical system. One critical component of this system is the electrical panel, which acts as the main distribution point for all the electricity in your home. Over time, your electrical panel may become outdated, faulty, or simply unable to keep up with the electrical demands of your modern lifestyle.
Not having your electrical panel inspected can lead to serious consequences, such as:
Electrical Failure: Misusing your electrical panel can result in frequent outages due to tripped breakers. Wear and tear eventually take a toll and can make the panel more prone to overloads. It won’t be able to keep up with demand. Damage to breakers, connectors, and busbars can disrupt connections while rust can cause trouble too. Improperly installed panels/components and old wires are also issues to watch out for. If the panel fails, it might not only be an immediate shock, electrocution, or fire danger; your entire home electrical system may not work.
Electrical fires: An outdated or overloaded electrical panel can cause a fire, which can put your family and home at risk.
Damaged appliances and electronics: Your service panel is designed to distribute electricity and stop problems associated with electrical faults and overloads. Uncontrolled current and surges can short circuit devices and cause them to fail prematurely, even if spikes in current aren’t that high. Expensive items such as stoves, washing machines, air conditioners, televisions, and computers can be damaged beyond repair. Using your panel properly and having it serviced can therefore save you a lot of money.
Reduced energy efficiency: An old electrical panel can cause a decrease in your home’s energy efficiency, which can result in higher utility bills.
