Does Your Panel Need To Be Replaced?
Tripping breakers are never fun, and it’s especially inconvenient when it happens in a commonly used part of your home like the kitchen. One minute you’re enjoying a fun dinner party and the next, you and your guests are shrouded in darkness. The only thing standing between you and an evening thrown into darkness is your circuit breaker panel. Don’t be the victim of your overloaded breaker panel – call Arnold Electric!
When Should I Get My Panel Upgraded or Replaced?
There are a few crucial times to have your home’s electrical panel inspected. It’s essential to consider panel upgrades during any major home renovation or addition. This includes installing anything that demands significant electricity, such as an electric car charging station or entertainment center. In any home sale process, you may want to have the electrical panel inspected by a Chicago licensed electrician before a home inspector is called. It’s possible there have been “upgrades” over the years by DIY-ers who have not adhered to state electrical safety codes. Arnold Electric can save you from costly delays by bringing your panel up to code before the home inspector demands it.
