Electrical Panel Replacements
The comfort of your home is highly dependent on your electrical panel. It functions as a bridge between the power grid and your home. It also controls any transfer of power from any alternative energy sources you might have in your home. It distributes the energy from these power sources to the outlets where it’s needed.
An electrical panel also acts as a safety check for instances of high voltage.
By regulating for high voltage or cases of overcurrent, it protects you and your home from sudden fire outbreaks or incidents of electrocution due to electric current leakages.
At A+ Heating & Cooling, our team is trained on the installation of electrical panels. It doesn’t matter if you need to install a new board or upgrade an existing one; our professionalism and approach to safety are top notch. These are the primary reasons why people in Ocean Isle Beach, NC, hire us when considering an local electrician for their installations, upgrades or maintenance needs.
Symptoms of a Malfunctioning Electrical Panel
Age is the primary reason why most electrical panels start to malfunction. But that is the case if you don’t maintain the board regularly and adequately because a well-maintained board can last for an indefinite period unless something drastic such as rats eating the wires happens.
In most malfunctions, the electrical board has either been improperly maintained or is overwhelmed due to overloaded circuits. Overloaded circuits happen because your electricity needs have grown past your current wiring infrastructure – such as when you install an electric vehicle charging station.
Here are some symptoms of a malfunctioning panel:
- Your lights start to flicker for no apparent reason. They also flash when you switch on an appliance that requires a lot of power to work.
- You notice that your circuit breakers trip regularly.
- You need to unplug or switch off an appliance before you use another in the same power outlet.
- You smell or see smoke due to melting wires. This happens due to overheating, as the panel can’t handle the electrical load it previously managed. If this happens to your panel, call an electrician immediately.
