Signs Your Electrical Panel Needs Repairs

Electrical panels can last anywhere from 25-40 years depending on the amount of power surges it experiences, and the wear and tear it goes through over the years. If you have an older electrical panel, or you experience any of the following, it’s smart to call Chesterfield Service for electrical panel repairs.

  • Burning Odor: burning smells often mean that the plastic jacket around the electrical wiring is melting or that the wood and insulation in your walls is becoming singed. If you notice any burning odors coming from the electrical box, it’s a cause for concern. 
  • Flickering Lights: If you notice flickering lights when another appliance is turned on, it is often a sign that your electrical panel isn’t prepared for the needed power draw the room requires. 
  • Unusual Noises: Electrical panels operate silently except for the loud click they make when a breaker is flipped. Noises coming from your electrical panel often indicate that there is a bad wire or a loose electrical connection. 
  • Frequent Breaker Trips: Tripping happens when a circuit draws too much power. If this happens very frequently, it is a sign that your electrical panel lacks the capacity to allow adequate electrical power flow. 
  • Sparks: When are sparks ever a sign of something good? Sparks could indicate a number of issues, and should be addressed right away before the sparks start a fire.

All of these issues and more are reasons that your electrical panel is not operating properly or is experiencing issues. Since electricity causes many unexpected home fires, it is important to have this issue addressed quickly.
