Technology has advanced leaps and bounds in the past few decades. With the introduction of home assistants like Alexa, many people are adding more and more smart devices to their homes. Along with increasingly high-powered computers, efficient appliances, and other gadgetry, its worth wondering if your current electrical panel can keep up.
The Copper Connection has seen firsthand the demand updated electronics and lighting can have on older electrical panels. If you experience frequent breaker trips, your panel may not be up to snuff. Advances in efficient lighting and powerful devices certainly are not going to be slowing down. So, here are a few reasons why you may want to consider an upgrade.
Dependable Source of Electricity
Upgrading your electrical panel will boost your energy supply. Having enough energy to go around will mean that you will not have to deal with the frustration of tripping circuits. Thus, your appliances and lighting will not have to fight for electricity anymore. No more flickering lights!
Room for Growth
Upgrading your electrical panel will also give you freedom to expand on your home in the future. If you want to add USB charging ports around the house or want to add central AC, your upgraded electrical panel can handle it.
If your electrical panel is more than 20 years old, it may be missing some important built in safety mechanisms. When an older panel is overloaded it could lead to serious problems, such as house fires. Modern panels, however, are built with safety in mind. So, when you upgrade, you can have peace of mind knowing that your family is safe.
Obviously, there are many benefits to upgrading your electrical panel, whether for your home or business. If you are tired of dealing with an unreliable and possibly dangerous panel, give us at The Copper Connection a call today! We can take care of all of your electrical needs.
