When we do our inspections, we follow a thorough list that will catch any potential problems. Electrical panels are often the most complex part of the inspection.
Electrical Panels Inspection
Depending on the age, installation quality, and (in some cases) the brand, we may recommend an electrical panel update during your inspection. Since standards and technology are always evolving, and your panel is used 24/7, we recommend a replacement after at most 20 years. Any longer than that is a risk. You may lose power or worse.
If your panel is a Zinsco or Federal Pacific brand, it’s definitely time for a new one. These brands have a reputation for major faults and damages.
If you need to install a new electrical panel, we’ll get it taken care of. If we’re only replacing the panel, it takes a day or less. If it involves both the meter and the panel, it can take up to two days. Don’t worry, though: we won’t leave you without power.
If you’re thinking about replacing your electrical panel as a DIY project, consider the risks. Our electricians go through years of training and specialized credentials. Not even an electrical engineer is allowed to install electrical, so is it something you really want to tackle yourself? We recommend having a professional installation for your safety and the safety of others.
