    Top Notch Electric Panel Services

    Every home has some kind of electrical panel. Some have older-style fuse boxes. Many others have newer breaker box electrical panels. Replacements for either type often depend on a variety of factors. Most commonly, you’ll find your electrical panel in your basement or an attached garage. However, this isn’t always the case: some homes have them hidden behind a panel in a kitchen cabinet.

    There is a wide variety of maintenance tasks that come with home ownership. Not all of these are fun: no one likes to climb a ladder and clean out their gutters. Generally speaking, from time to time it may be necessary for you to have an electrical panel replacement. This is a component of your electrical setup within your house that you don’t think about.

    The Difference Between Residential and Commercial Panels

    Residential and commercial electrical panels differ in several key aspects:

    • Size and Capacity: Commercial electrical panels are typically larger and have a higher capacity compared to residential panels. Commercial buildings often require more electrical power to support larger equipment, machinery, and higher occupancy levels.
    • Voltage: Commercial panels may operate at higher voltages than residential panels to accommodate the larger electrical loads found in commercial settings.
    • Number of Circuits: Commercial panels generally have a greater number of circuits compared to residential panels. This allows for more individual circuits to power various equipment and systems in a commercial building.
    • Phases: Commercial electrical systems may be three-phase, while residential systems are typically single-phase. Three-phase power is more common in commercial and industrial settings due to its ability to deliver more power efficiently.
    • Metering: Commercial properties often require separate metering for different areas or tenants within a building, which may involve more complex panel configurations and metering arrangements compared to residential setups.
    • Regulatory Requirements: Commercial electrical installations must comply with different codes and regulations compared to residential installations. These requirements may include stricter safety standards, load calculations, and inspection procedures for commercial panels.
    • Usage and Application: Commercial electrical panels are designed to handle the specific electrical needs of commercial buildings, such as powering HVAC systems, lighting, machinery, and office equipment. Residential panels, on the other hand, are tailored to meet the demands of typical household appliances and lighting fixtures.

    Overall, while both residential and commercial electrical panels serve the purpose of distributing electricity throughout a building, they are engineered to meet the unique requirements and usage patterns of their respective environments. The unique characteristics of each type of panel often necessitate different approaches, techniques, and considerations. Specialization in either residential or commercial electrical work allows electricians to develop the expertise required to effectively address the specific needs of each type of installation.

    Electrical Panel FAQs

    One famous tagline we’re all familiar with is “You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.” When it comes to Yoder Electric and your electrical panel replacement, that tagline is 100% spot on. Our team has collected the most common questions we’ve been asked for electrical panel replacements and compiled this set of answers to get you started.

    What types of electrical panels are most common?

    We’ve already mentioned it indirectly, but to be clear there are two primary types of electrical panels. The first is your old-school-style fuse box system. These operate by causing a tiny wire to pop within the fuse whenever the power flow exceeds the circuit’s capacity. To use any electrical appliance or components on that circuit, you need to replace the blown fuse with a good one. Breaker boxes eliminate the need for fuse replacements. In this case, whenever the power load exceeds what the circuit can handle, the breaker kills the power. Now to restore power, all you have to do is flip the breaker back to the “off” and then back to the “on” position. In many cases, there will be a quick visual reference of the tripped breaker: a red strip visible through the breaker’s small glass window. If you see red, that means that’s the breaker that just turned off.

    How long does it take to perform an electrical panel replacement?

    The time to perform an electrical panel replacement can vary depending on the extent of the project and if multiple electrical panels are needing to be replaced. In addition, if you’ve also requested a whole-home rewiring as a part of the project, this can add to the time involved. While we hate to say any job can be performed quickly, as there are always unexpected situations that can pop up, as a rule of thumb you should expect a residential electrical panel replacement to take no less than four hours. A better timeframe would be closer to eight to ten hours, though again this can vary depending on the scale of the project. Commercial projects simply have too many variables and we encourage your team to reach out to us as soon as you know you need our services so we can minimize downtime as much as possible.

    Do I need a permit to replace my electrical panel?

    If you’ve ever added to your home or did any work that required digging, you’re likely aware of the need to obtain a permit for the work. Electrical panel replacement projects often fall into what some municipalities call a “large-scale” project. In addition, a city or county inspector frequently has to sign off on the work. While the answer can and will vary depending on where you live, you may need a permit for an electrical panel replacement. It’s better to err on the side of caution than to face unexpected fines for not obtaining a permit. Our team can help you decide whether you will or will not need a permit, which is yet another reason why this type of project should be handled by a licensed professional.

    What are some signs that you need an electrical panel replacement?

    We’ve already mentioned a few of the things that can point to the need for an electrical panel replacement. Those include flickering lights, minor shocks from switches, rusty fuse panels, constantly tripping breakers, and the age of your electrical panel. There are also other causes for each of those problems; the best solution is to contact our office and set up an appointment for service. We will be able to then let you know if you need a replacement or if another problem is causing the issues you’ve encountered.

    How often do you need an electrical panel replacement?

    Electrical panels should last for, at a bare minimum, twenty-five years. Some may even be rated for upwards of 40 years. The answer to this question will depend on a variety of factors, though if you had a replacement at any time in the past ten to fifteen years, you should be good for another decade or so.

    What is the typical cost for electrical panel replacement services?

    Many customers have asked for a “ballpark” quote for electrical panel replacement services. Like our many other services, we believe tailored and customized estimates allow us to better serve both our residential and commercial customers. If you think it may be time for an updated electrical panel, you can start by contacting our office. Our knowledgeable sales team can help you set up a convenient time for a technician to come to your property to complete an estimate.

    Do you offer quotes for electrical panel replacement?

    Yes, we offer quotes for electrical panel replacements. Each of our sales offices can help you with the steps to getting a quote, including whether one of our team members will need to visit your home or if we can conduct most of the estimate via email.

    Will I need to rewire my house if I’m having an electrical panel replacement?

    As with many of these questions, the answer is not cut and dry. Rather, the needs of each home or commercial facility will be different. If your home is using older or less reliable wiring, and you’re switching from a fuse box to a breaker box, you may need to rewire your home. On the other hand, if your home is relatively newer and you’re simply replacing your electrical panel with a newer model, then it’s equally possible we won’t need to update any wiring throughout your home. Again, a custom project estimate will help you make an informed decision.
