An Electrical panel is the entire operating system for your homes power needs. While the life span of a typical panel is 20-30 years, that is all dependent on the maintenance it has received over the years. In most cases, its zero. Jag Electric while giving a free estimate can inspect your panel and let you know a little more about the system.

Some things we look for are:

  • Is there a main breaker? (Split bus panels have a main that controls only the lower half, leaving the upper portion constantly on. Not safe in the event of failure.)
  • Are appropriate breakers on appropriate wires? (Over sized breakers on undersized wires poses a fire hazard if the draw exceeds the rating)
  • Is there Knob and tube present? (knob and tube does not offer a ground and after many, many years is usually degraded and unsafe)
  • Do you have the space to accommodate future goals? (Hot tubs, EV chargers, Bidet toilets, etc.)
  •   Is there a grounding and bonding system hooked up? (Grounding and bonding connected to your panel allows for safe path to ground in the event of a fault.)
  • Are connections tight? (loose connections will cause arcing and heat/fire hazards)
  • Jag Electric will also check the panel you have with a thermal imaging camera to ensure no breakers are overheating.

And many other small details that ensure things run smoothly!
