Time to upgrade your electrical panel? Call the experts at Donovan today.

A home’s electrical panel typically has a life span of 20 to 30 years. If you’re planning to update your home with new appliances or renovations, or if your electrical system is dated and unsafe, it’s time to call the professionals at Donovan for an upgrade. 

What is an electrical panel?

The power to your home comes through an electrical meter outside and is routed to your electrical panel, a steel box that may be mounted on a wall inside or on the exterior of your home. The main electrical panel is the hub of your home’s power system—it holds all your circuit breakers, which are safety switches that shut off power to parts of your home when an electrical circuit overloads. For your home electrical system to operate properly and safely at all times, your main electrical panel must be healthy.

Signs your electrical panel needs repair or to be replaced

Just like most other systems in your home, there will likely come a time when your electrical panel may need to be repaired, upgraded, or replaced. When the time comes, our experienced and highly trained electricians will evaluate the issues you are having and will make expert recommendations on the work needed to keep your home’s electrical system in tip-top shape.

Common reasons your electrical panel may need to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Your electrical panel is very old.

  • Lights are flickering.

  • You can’t use multiple appliances plugged into the same circuit.

  • Your breakers trip often.

  • Breakers are overheating, causing fire, smoke, and melted wires.

  • You hear crackling sounds coming from your electrical panel.

  • Appliances are no longer able to run at full power.

  • You use extension cords often.

  • You have an older home with a fuse box panel that doesn’t have a main breaker.

  • You are renovating or adding an addition to your home.

  • Outlets near water sources (sinks, showers, dishwashers, and washing machines) are not GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupters).



 Key factors we consider to determine if your electrical panel can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced include:

  • The age of the electrical panel

  • The reliability of your current electrical panel

  • How safe your electrical panel is currently
