Your electrical panel is the core of your electrical system. It allows you the space and the power to run branch circuitry throughout your house. Lauterborn Electric replaces and upgrades many electrical panels every year for multiple reasons. We post tons of before and after pictures of panel upgrades on our blog.
Electrical Panel Upgrade
Why replace or upgrade your electrical panel?
- Your panel is corroded or oxidized from water damage.
- Your panel has lost its Underwriters Listing (UL) rating such as Federal Pacific.
- Your panel is out of space and cannot fit more breakers.
- You need more power for an electric oven or car charger.
Water damage in your electrical panel usually comes through your service entry cable. In that case, a full service upgrade is usually needed which includes a panel change along with a new meter socket and service cable.
