Electrical Panels in Naples
The electrical panel in your home takes the wiring from outside and connects it to your home’s electrical grid inside. Being the hub that provides you with electricity, it’s important to maintain and when necessary, upgrade and replace your home's electrical panel.
At Solid Power Inc. we provide our Naples clients with a full range of electrical services, from inspections to installations and repairs. Our certified electrical contractors know what makes the electrical system in your home tick and are equipped to provide you with knowledgeable advice and professional services.
If you have questions about your electrical panel, get in touch with us today.
When to Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
To start off, we’ll let you know that electrical panels are made to last 25-40 years. If, like many Naples homeowners, you don’t pay much attention to things such as electrical panels until they start malfunctioning, your panel’s age is something to think about if you’re unsure about getting an inspection.
None of us want to spend money when it’s not necessary, but if you’ve just purchased an older home and your electrical panel or breaker box looks just as old as the rest of the property, it’s a good idea to have one of our electrical contractors take a look.
Other signs that will point towards electrical panel problems include:
- Panel feels warm to the touch
- Panel smells burned
- You’re always tripping breakers
- Your lights are flickering
The electrical panel is meant to run all of the electrical power in your home smoothly. So, if that’s not happening for you, chances are you need a new electrical panel.
Cost to Replace Electrical Panel
Electrical upgrading is a complicated service that requires the hands of an experienced professional. Attempting it by yourself is dangerous both to you personally and your home. Not to mention the fact that if something does go wrong, you will be fully responsible and more often than not, will not be approved for assistance via insurance.
The cost to replace electrical panels ranges between $800 and $3,000, depending on the size of your home. While small homes with less appliances in Naples will be on the lower end of the spectrum, larger homes with all the gadgets will be looking at a costlier replacement. Either way, the question of cost should be one of “what’s the cost if I don’t replace my electrical panel?” A malfunctioning electrical panel can short out wiring and even cause electrical fires—not something you want to deal with.
