Main Electrical Panel Upgrades and Replacement in Suffolk County

The main electrical panel is the central hub of your home’s electrical system, the distribution point for all the electrical circuits in your home. 

On Long Island, many of the main electric panels are outdated and fail to meet code compliance in Suffolk County. If your main electric panel fails, the loss of light, heat or AC, power to the refrigerator can cause distress in the home. A power loss will also disable alarms (security, smoke, for example) and put your family in danger.

Not only do you get peace of mind knowing your home and family are safe, our main electric panel replacements are Satisfaction Guaranteed for three years. On the off chance that your panel gives you any inconvenience during that three-year period, we will fix the issue free of charge. Our master electricians ensure that all materials used meet code compliance on all electric panel repairs and replacements.

How Main Electrical Panels Work

The main electrical panel is located in a dry, out of the way area of your home. This is often the basement, a utility room, or garage. The power line from the house’s exterior connects to a power meter, which then goes directly to this box.

You will find rows of switches inside the box; these are called circuit breakers. These switches distribute the electricity coming into the house to smaller lines leading to different areas of the home.

On the inside door of the box is a label that shows which switches go to which outlets or large appliances in the house, as well as how much energy, or amps, is carried on the line.

Some large appliances, such as electric dryers or air conditioners, will have two or three switches to support the loads of electricity they require.

The main electrical panel will also have a switch that can turn off power to the entire system at once. This switch is your main circuit breaker.

Signs Your Main Electric Panel Needs a Check-up

If you have an old home, or if your electrical panel is more than 25 years old, you may have seen or heard signs that it needs service.

It may be time for an electrical panel upgrade if you notice these issues:

  • Crackling sounds from the panel
  • Circuit breakers with corrosion or rust on them
  • The inside of the panel feels warm
  • Appliances running at less than full power
  • You have a fuse block panel or split-bus panel and no main breaker

An upgrade may also be the right choice if you find yourself using an extension cord a lot or if your system’s amperage is not sufficient to effectively power devices.
