Avoiding Overextended Electrical Panel Dangers with an Upgrade

We at Lauterborn Electric often run into over extended and cluttered main electrical panels. The images below show a cluttered 200 AMP panel and a properly sized panel installed by Lauterborn Electric.

Many unqualified electricians keep packing circuitry into an already maxed out panel causing the potential for overheating and failure of the main electrical panel. Panels are rated for a certain amount of circuitry clearly stated on their panel boards.

Dangers of Overextended Main Panels 

Exceeding the manufacturers’ specifications can lead to electrical issues that can lead to power failure or even fires. Although it is an expense to replace an undersized panel with a larger one, the safety of your home and family is worth it.
