Why Do I Need to Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
We specialize in providing comprehensive panel changes for homeowners and commercial customers in Denver CO and surrounding cities. Whether you are using more electrical devices or you are adding onto your home, a breaker box upgrade may be necessary. For most electrical panels in Denver and Aurora 20 years is a good run especially because many electrical panels and meters are located outside. Most importantly, if you do not upgrade an old or inefficient panel it could create safety issues for your home. For instance, voltage drop-offs due to bussing problems. That can damage your electronics! Allow our licensed electricians inspect the electrical system in your home and ensure your property is safe. Some of the reasons to perform an electrical upgrade include:
Electrical panel overheating
You use a lot of extension chords
You have a new major electrical appliance
The lights in your home flicker consistently
The circuit breakers trip or the fuses blow
Your home has several two pronged outlets
New additions to your household
Outdated electrical wiring
Not enough outlets
How do I know when I need a new panel?
It’s probably time for a new electrical panel when your current one is 20 years old or more. Believe it or not, using electricity will wear out your connections over time. When electricity is used it creates heat, which cause expansion, and the end result is connection failure. When connections are on their way out, they often get hotter and hotter until the point when they trip a circuit breaker or catch fire. Other reasons to upgrade include missing covers, loose breakers, broken parts, tripping breakers, or not enough power because of a new addition or new equipment.

Why Are Panel Changes Important?
If your lights are flickering or your panel is buzzing, then it’s probably time to take a load off. Your electrical service panel can only handle so much power. If it seems to be overloaded, call us for panel changes. We’ll inspect, repair, or upgrade your electrical panel to prevent damage and address safety concerns.
Ensuring a Safe Circuit Box & Circuit Breakers
A tripping circuit breaker is not only bothersome, but it’s also a warning sign. Without circuit breakers in your home, appliances and wires overheat if there are electrical load problems. Your circuit box handles the power coming into your home. It reduces the voltage and distributes the appropriate amount of electricity to different rooms in your house. By replacing old breakers and boxes, we help to ensure your home is safer from electrical fires, power surges, and arching. With newly installed circuit breakers, we give your home the power it needs and make sure everything is up to code. For a courteous team that provides prompt and accurate services, depend on 303 Carefree Service Solutions.
Home Surge Protection
Protect your new electrical panel with a surge protector! Many households utilize power strips to protect against voltage spikes. This does work to protect your electronic devices, but only for those pugged into that particular outlet. With a home surge protector, you can protect all the devices in your home.
