Electrical Panels St Louis
It is hard to know if your electrical panel is up to standard for the amount of power you need. Here are some questions to ask yourself if you are contemplating upgrading or replacing your current electrical panel:
1.    How old is your electrical panel? 30 years is a life expectancy of an outdoor panel, while indoor panels could last up to 40 years. But that doesn’t always mean there is enough power to supply today’s appliances or gadgets.
2.    How old is your home? If you home is older than 35 years, then it is probably time to look into upgrading or replacing. Contact Hoffmann Brothers here.
3.    Is there more physical space in the panel to install more breakers? If you need additional breakers and there is space in your current panel, you may not need a whole new panel or sub panel.
4.    Are my lights flickering? Flickering lights can be a warning and could be a sign of poor electrical connections. If lights are flickering in one area, it could be resolved by within a local branch circuit. If lights are flickering within your home in multiple areas, it could be the electrical panel.
5.    Are my service cables worn or damaged? The cables of where your utility wires connect to your home or building and your electrical panel are your responsibility. Problems here may include worn or damaged insulation, loose cables, or damaged or missing clamps & anchors.
6.    Does my panel show any signs of moisture? Water & Electricity are a deadly combination. If there is any rust, chalky white residue, or corrosion on any wiring or metal parts of your panel, you should have it inspected for possible water damage. 

7.    Are you doing any home remodeling or home additions? Your standard electrical panel may not be able to handle the additional electrical load.
