Electrical panel - Upgrade from fuses to breakers

Have you had recent incidents with your current electrical panel? Is there a breaker that trips or a fuse that blows when you turn on some appliances? Have you noticed any wire abnormally hot or strange odor in your current panel? Are you planning to buy any new appliances but your electrical panel is at full capacity? Are you planning to sell your house? Is your electrical panel disorganized and may be a hazard in the future and would like a professional opinion? 

If you answer yes to any of the previous questions and you are located in Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington or Hamilton area, contact Colony Electrical Inc., our professional electricians can advise you on what is the best solution for your particular case.

Electrical panels play a critical function in your home. Their purpose is to safely distribute the electrical power through your house. These are where your main power source is distributed throughout various zones to power electrical appliances, TVs and other items (referred to as branch circuits). In order for an electrical system to function properly, it relies on the electrical panel to breakdown the power supply into increments of 100 amps or more. Older panels don’t have the same capabilities as newer ones. Colony Electrical Inc. can help you upgrade your current electrical panel to a safer, more reliable model.

Why an Electrical Panel Upgrade is Important:

  • Older electrical panels cannot add as many circuits or use fuses (and fuses are not covered by all insurance carriers)
  • Older panels are often running to maximum capacity on amp distribution
  • The quality and safety is likely to be compromised as your electrical panel gets older
  • A newer electrical panel increases the capacity of electrical service for your home
  • Older units often have overheated breakers, loose conductors, and meter socket issues.
  • An older panel can reduce the price of your home if you are planning to sell.

Remember that your insurance company may deny a claim in case the cause of the incident was electrical work performed by unlicensed electricians. For instance, if you bought a house with electrical additions installed by the previous owners themselves without the necessary permit or safety inspection, your insurance company can state that as a reason to deny your claim.

Colony Electrical Inc. offers electrical panel retrofitting, service panel upgrade/repair/installation services that can bring your home’s electrical system up to code and increase the efficiency of your electrical service.

Upgrade Your Home’s Electrical Panels for Increased Safety and Efficiency

Residential electrical panel - Electrical code compliant

Typically, your homeowner’s insurance prefers a home to be upgraded from traditional fuses to breakers. Fuse panels are unreliable, blow frequently and can become a severe hazard for the home. Upgrading to a breaker-style electrical panel means you will not only decrease the number of times your home loses power, but also allow your home to distribute power more effectively to bigger appliances.
Fuses in older electrical panels are attached to smaller gauge wires. These wires run through your walls and the studs holding up your home’s structure. When these wires overheat, they become a serious fire hazard. Our team of residential electrical services professionals is familiar with older electrical panels and we can upgrade your panel with as little disruption to your lifestyle as possible. In addition to a panel upgrade, we also offer:

  • Full-Service Upgrades
  • Meter Base Repairs and Replacements
  • Service Masts
  • Weather Head Replacements
  • Grounding System Replacements and Installations
  • Surge Protection Devices for the Entire Home
  • Labelled Circuit Breakers on the Electrical Panel
  • Sub Panel Installation (If Needed)

Upgrading your home’s electrical panels reduces the limitations and hazards of traditional panels. Depending on your insurance carrier, it could also lower your homeowner insurance premiums, making it an ideal upgrade for any home.
