Is Your Electrical Panel Safe & Secure?
Today's homes should have at least 150 amps. Unfortunately, millions of homes today are more than 40 years old and have panels that are no more than 60 amps. These outdated panels are often not capable of safely handling the demands of today's society. The same way your heart needs regular attention to avoid complications, your panel also needs regular maintenance to keep it operating properly.
Experts say that today's electrical panels function properly and protect homes for 30 years or more! Want more information about panels? Visit Is My Panel Safe?
Did You Know?
More than 50% of all homes may have electrical panels that cannot support their needs. This is because many homes were built during or before the 1970s — before advanced technology in electric systems was invented. Obsolete electrical panels are susceptible to malfunction, which leads to possible shock and fire risks. Many of these obsolete panels have been known to operate properly for years, but if and when they do malfunction, a disaster could occur.
