Your electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system. It distributes power from your power provider to all the electrical devices in your home. If your service equipment fails, major problems can occur. Loss of power, damage to electrical devices and at worst, an electrical fire.
Today homes use more electricity compared to homes of the past. When you add central air, a new refrigerator or a T.V. in every room, your home doesn't automatically provide the additional power you need. If the breakers are often tripping or blowing fuses because of the increase in electrical demand, you might need a service upgrade.
Today's electrical panels and equipment are well designed and safe. Electrical panels and equipment installed in the past may have been safe then but now have the potential to cause power failures, fires, and shock hazards.
The fact is if your home is between 20-30 years old and you have not had a panel/service upgrade, you should consider doing so.
