Professional Panel Upgrades & Replacements in Tompkins County

When your electrical panel is unable to handle the load from all your appliances and lights, the panel needs to be repaired or upgraded. At John Mills Electric, we offer panel repair and upgrade services. 

When to Repair vs. When to Upgrade Your Electrical Panel

Your electrical panel distributes power to all the outlets and appliances in your home. The panel is a critical component of your electrical system, and it is important to keep it in good condition. Sometimes, a panel needs minor repairs, such as replacing a faulty circuit breaker. In other cases, the panel is too small to handle the power needs of your home. In these situations, it is necessary to upgrade the panel or install a new one.

You should consider panel repair or replacement if:

  • Circuits don’t work 
  • Breakers trip frequently 
  • The panel is very old 
  • You have added a new appliance or new lights
  • You have noticed sparks or smells coming from your panel 
  • Your home has experienced blackouts due to an overloaded panel

Can I repair my electrical panel myself?

Electrical panel repair should always be done by a licensed and experienced electrician. Working with electrical panels can be dangerous and requires specialized knowledge and tools. It is best to leave the repairs to professionals to ensure safety and proper functioning of the panel.

What is involved in upgrading an electrical panel?

Upgrading an electrical panel involves replacing the existing panel with a larger one that can handle increased power demands. This may require rewiring, installing new circuit breakers, and ensuring compliance with electrical codes. A licensed electrician will assess your power needs and recommend the appropriate panel upgrade.

How long does it take to repair or upgrade an electrical panel?

The time required to repair or upgrade an electrical panel depends on the extent of the issue and the complexity of the upgrade. Minor repairs can usually be completed within a few hours, while panel upgrades may take a day or more. A professional electrician will provide an estimate based on the specific situation.

Are there any safety precautions I should take with my electrical panel?

It is important to take certain safety precautions with your electrical panel. Avoid touching the panel with wet hands, keep the area around the panel clear of clutter, and never attempt to open the panel or work on it yourself. If you notice any signs of damage or malfunction, such as sparks or unusual sounds, contact a licensed electrician immediately.
