Your electrical panel is where all the electricity in your home goes, so it’s an important part of your house. It’s also hardwired and dangerous, so you don’t want to mess around with it on your own unless you have professional experience. That’s why it’s always a good idea to work with licensed electricians for any electrical panel upgrade or replacement in Clearwater, Dunedin, St Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Hillsborough County FL and surrounding areas.
Your breaker panel is where all the electricity in your home gets distributed to your lights, receptacles, and appliances. It’s a grey metal box that can be found on the wall in your garage or home near where the power comes in. It will have circuit breakers inside that “trip” and stop the flow of electricity when there’s an overload, helping to avoid fire hazards.
Older homes may have panels that are prone to failure or don’t meet the needs of modern appliances, and they will need to be replaced. In particular, many homes built in the 1960s or ’70s have panels that are manufactured by Sylvania, which have been found to malfunction and pose a serious safety risk. These panels will need to be replaced by a qualified licensed electrician as soon as possible. Our Clearwater and Tampa based electricians can help you figure out what type of panel your home has, and can replace it with the right model to ensure your home is safe and functional.
