Why Your Electrical Panel Is So Important
You may have heard that the electrical panel, also known as a breaker box or fuse box, is an important element of your electrical system. The panel is often compared to the heart or the brain, because it is so vital to the overall function of your electrical system.The panel basically takes incoming electricity and routes it, through a series of breakers or fuses, to the part of the home where power is needed.

When Electrical Panel Installation Is Completed
An electrical box install is completed when your home is under construction. From there, an electrical panel needs to be replaced about every 20 to 25 years. Your electrical panel may also need to be replaced if it gets damaged or if it no longer meets the needs of your home. Lastly, because the electrical panel is on the exterior of your home, some people opt to replace it when they replace the siding of their home since it is easily accessible at that point in time.
Signs It Is Time For Electrical Panel Box Upgrades
Your electrical panel may need ot be upgraded or replaced if your existing panel no longer meets the needs of your home. If your electrical panel box is completely full, and you need to add new breakers or circuits to it, that is a clear indication that your panel needs to be upgraded to accommodate the extra energy your home needs or uses.
Why You May Need Fuse and Breaker Replacements
Your breaker box may need the fuses or breakers replaced if they pop or trip. Circuits or fuses may trip or pop for no reason at all, and needing to replace a breaker or fuse once every few years or so is nothing to worry about. However, if you find that you are replacing the same popped or tripped fuse or breaker, you should talk to an electrician. This is a sign that you may need to add a new breaker or fuse to your system or you may need to upgrade your electrical panel.
