Does your electrical panel need an upgrade?

The electrical service panel is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home or business – and one of the most frequently taken for granted. Over 70% of electrical panels in residences need to be upgraded: Older houses didn’t use as much electricity when they were first built, since there wasn’t such heavy usage of appliances, air conditioners, or electronic equipment. Homes built in the ’50s don’t even have grounded receptacles, which is a huge fire risk. Homes built in the ’70s were wired with aluminum due to the lack of copper caused by the war; insurance companies will not cover homes with aluminum or nob and tube wiring. Breakers in old service panels don’t even trip, which can lead to electrical fires…Don’t you think it might be time for an upgrade?
