Replacing Your Electrical Panel

Knowing when to replace your electrical panel can help prevent electrical failure and home fires.

Here are a few signs that it is time to call a professional:

  • Your current electrical panel is outdated.
    If your electrical panel is over 25 years old, you should replace it. Outdated electrical panels pose safety risks. Upgrading your electrical panel will reduce the risk of a fire and may even help reduce your homeowner’s insurance as a result.
  • You smell something burning or see frequent sparks.
    Burning smells or sparks are warning signs. Our electrical professionals can assess the situation and determine an appropriate solution. Be sure to reach out to our Mason Pro Services professionals.
  • Your lights flicker or dim.
    Have you ever tried to plug in and use a household appliance, only to notice your lights begin to flicker or dim? The issue could be frayed wiring—but it could also indicate a problem with your electrical panel. An overloaded circuit can cause flickering lights. Upgrading an outdated electrical panel helps fix this issue.
  • You touched a light switch or outlet and felt a shock.
    An electrical shock should always warrant concern. Shocks can be due to incorrect installation and outdated or ineffective electrical equipment. Protect yourself and ensure your safety by replacing your current electrical panel.
