On the other hand, your home may need a complete panel upgrade that includes an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and panel. An electric panel upgrade is just what it implies: it is an upgrade from the existing electrical panel in your Baton Rouge home. With all the new appliances and technical devices we now have in our Baton Rouge homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, Baton Rouge panel upgrades are required.
Why Homes Need Baton Rouge Panel Upgrades
A Baton Rouge panel upgrade is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.
Electrical Safety & Panel Upgrades in Baton Rouge
We can’t convey enough how important it is to ensure your home is properly equipped with a reliable service panel with the right electrical capacity to maintain your Baton Rouge home’s electronics. There have been so many incidents of electrical fires just this year in Baton Rouge, and most of these are attributed to electrical circuit overloads, a common occurrence when a property is not adequately equipped with an upgraded electrical panel. Remember the Port Allen electrical fire reported at a grain elevator? Or perhaps the electrical fire damages a Central pizza restaurant suffered recently that was caused by electrical issues? Or the electrical failure at a grocers warehouse in Baton Rouge? These properties all suffered fire and smoke damages that had to be repaired in addition to the electrical repairs.
Now imagine if it were your home in Baton Rouge? House fires spread rapidly and can cause serious damage in a matter of minutes. Just recently a home Baton Rouge suffered fire damages because of an electrical short that caused a fire to break out in the laundry room. You may have heard about this on the news if you were paying attention; but if you are like many homeowners in Baton Rouge, you probably didn’t pay it much mind – or at the very least you may have thought something along the lines of how strange or rare such an occurrence must be. Surely there was something terribly wrong with their electrical wiring, you may have thought.
Well, there doesn’t have to be something “terribly wrong” – or rather, noticeably wrong – for an electrical short to cause a fire in your own home in the Baton Rouge area. This is especially true of older homes that have not had panel upgrades within the last ten years. This is because the electrical panels of older homes generally are not capable of handling the demands of today’s electrical appliances and devices.
Thinking about remodeling your older Baton Rouge home? Be SURE you get a panel upgrade if needed. Remodeling older homes seems like a great idea, but only if the rest of the home’s systems are properly upgrade at the same time. All the new kitchen appliances and lighting in the world won’t do you any good without Baton Rouge panel upgrades to let those new items properly function without causing electrical fire hazards.
Electrical fires can happen in any home in Baton Rouge, so don’t think you are immune. You can safeguard your property and your family, though, by investing in a electrical safety inspection and getting any necessary electrical repairs or upgrades required to keep your home up to electrical code standards. Let Braud Electric help you take the necessary measures to ensure your family and property’s safety.
Protect yourself and your family from electrical fires by ensuring your electrical panel is upgraded properly by a licensed Baton Rouge electrician and can handle the electricity demands of your house.
