How to Tell You Need an Electric Service Upgrade

Thinking of adding new appliances or electrical devices to the home? Electricians generally advise panel upgrades and repairs to ensure that the system can handle the increased demand. However, there are other signs that a system may need to be upgraded.

Some of the key indicators that you need a Denver circuit panel upgrade include:

  • An aging panel – If a breaker panel is over 20 years old, it may be time to consider an update. Older panels may not be able to handle the electrical demands of modern homes, which can lead to safety hazards.
  • The presence of flickering lights – Do the lights keep dimming, especially when other appliances are turned on? This may be a sign that the breaker panel is overloaded and needs to be updated.
  • Tripping breakers – Circuit breakers tend to trip frequently when the system needs an upgrade.
  • Burning smells – When an odor of burning is coming from the electrical panel, it could indicate an electrical issue that requires immediate attention. In a situation like this, it is best to turn off the power of the home and contact an electrician right away.

What is Overload Protection?

One of the most helpful options for service upgrades would be the addition of overload protection. This safety feature is increasingly being built into many electrical systems to prevent damage. When an excessive amount of electrical current flows through a circuit, it can lead to electrical shocks and fires. To avoid this risk, an overload protection system is designed to detect when too much current is running through an electrical line. The system will then immediately shut off power to that circuit before it overheats and starts a fire.

Overload protection can be provided by various devices, including circuit breakers, fuses, and thermal protectors. Circuit breakers are the most common type of devices and are installed in a home’s electrical panel, automatically disconnecting an overloaded circuit. Fuses, on the other hand, melt when the current exceeds a certain level, breaking the circuit. Thermal protectors work by sensing rising temperatures and shutting off the power when they get too high.
