If your home is more than 40 years old and you’re still using the original panel box, it may be time for an electrical panel replacement in Crete, NE. Older boxes aren’t designed to handle the newest smart home appliances. In addition, if you’re adding an outlet that will use a lot of electricity, such as a hot tub or an EV charging station, you’ll need to upgrade your existing circuits to ensure they can safely handle the increased load.

Electric panels are like other systems in your home. Over time they begin to show their age and should be replaced at least once every 25 years or so. Even if you have a small household, an electrical panel replacement protects your electronics and reduces the likelihood of spikes in electricity.
