Your electrical service panel is the location of your house’s electrical system where the electricity is brought in to the house from your power supply company. Each separate wire leaving the breaker panel and feeding your home is called an electrical circuit. This electric panel is like the heart of the electrical system of your home. Like veins and arteries any and all wiring going throughout the walls and ceilings of your home all start at the entrance panel! There here are several reason it may be time to upgrade your electrical panel in your Mississauga home . Do you have the old fashioned fuses ? If your Mississauga home was built before 1960 you most likely have an electrical panel with fuses. Fuses are used to control and limit the power of the electricity leaving the panel through each seperate circuit. If any circuit calls for more power than that circuit is rated for, the fuse will blow , meaning it will stop the flow of power at that circuit and as a result will then need to be replaced. This requires you to keep a few spares of the different fuses you have within your electrical system. If this is the type of electric panel you have in your house, it is probably time to upgrade to a new entrance panel with what are called electrical circuit breakers. Just like fuses, modern circuit breakers prevent power from overloading circuits. However, the circuit breakers do not burn out. Instead, they simply “trip” and only then need to be reset, there is no need to replace them. A breaker panel is therefore much safer than a fuse panel.

Does your electrical panel have enough power capacity for the square footage of your home ? With the old fashioned fuses, and even if your home has an electrical panel with circuit breakers you may want to check the power capacity of your electrical panel ampacity. Many Mississauga homes may have only a 60-amp or a 100-amp panel and that may not be powerful enough to handle many of the modern conveniences we have. In today’s homes such as central air conditioning and modern appliances We need a 200 AMP panel updrade. If you are often blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers, maybe notice your lights dimming low and staying low, or a burning smell coming from the area around your electric panel, it is likely past time to upgrade your electrical panel.
